Moyes’ one regret: No fans to celebrate with him

David Moyes has admitted that the 3-3 draw with Spurs was rather bittersweet because of the lack of fans in the ground.

The Hammers produced a near miracle of a comeback against Jose Mourinho’s men.

The game looked like it was over after 16 horror minutes that saw Harry Kane score a brace and Son Heung-Min also hit the back of the net.

Fabian Balbuena scored the Hammers’ first goal after 81 minutes and after a Davinson Sanchez own goal, it fell to Manuel Lanzini to score perhaps the greatest goal he will ever score.

Moyes went wild on the sidelines, jumping for joy, as the buoyant Hammers piled on top of each other to celebrate.

But he has admitted that he wishes there were supporters in the away end to greet Lanzini’s strike with the roar it so fully deserved.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he said: “I was jumping up and down, because it was such a big moment.

“To come back from 3-0 down to three each [that celebration] is what you get.

“I think it’s the bit where you miss the supporters being in the stadium. If we could have had them in the stadium coming from 3-0 down to 3-3 it would have been an incredible moment for us all, so let’s hope we can get them back soon.”

The Hammers have now beaten Wolves and Leicester while also drawing with Spurs; next up are Manchester City and Liverpool.

We want to be back as fast as possible and he’s right that would have been a time when the often dubbed soul-less bowl would have been rocking.

  1. Covid has indeed robbed us of a special moment…… What I would do to have been there to enjoy that moment in person…. and see their faces drop when Lanzini equalized…..YESSSSSSSSS 💪💪💪

  2. A miracle comeback. Finally I understand why some West Ham fans call David moyes the Moyesiah. In the kingdom of the blind the one eyed man is king but now I have seen the light and stand converted to the faith. I see with both eyes. All hail the moyesiah.
