David Moyes insists the Hammers go out to win every game!
The Hammers lost to Manchester United last week in a performance that can kindly be described as passive.
This weekend, against Arsenal, the Irons will be out to climb into the top four and there is no room for caution against the London rivals.
Moyes insists he never sets the Irons out to be anything short of attacking, and goes to win every game.
He told reporters: “I would say that we had no intentions of being cautious. Not one bit. In fact, our only intention was to see how we could take the game on and challenge it. But sometimes it doesn’t work out that way.
“And also you’ve got to remember the level of the difference in the players and the squads. We were well organised we’re well drilled. We were prepared for the games. But you know, ultimately, then the quality of the players can make a difference in how that game has turns out.
“But no, we’ve attempted to go about the games and win them, the same way we’ve done all season.”
Moyes also claims that he does see the questions over the Irons’ approach as something approaching a compliment, with fans expecting the Irons to go toe-to-toe with the likes of United and Liverpool, given their form in a magical, scarcely believable campaign.
He added: “But I think if you’re talking about beating Manchester United and beating Liverpool, I see that as a compliment rather than a negative, I’ll see you asking me that question.
I’m thinking: You’re asking me after last year whether we are close to beating Liverpool and Manchester United in that something you’re thinking maybe we should have done a bit better.
“There has to be a compliment. It can be seen as a negative in any way.”
