Moyes owns up to failure


Moyes owns up to failure

David Moyes appears to be very busy digging holes for himself at the moment as he admits failure in beating teams.

After his post match comments on how cleverly Everton stopped us getting crosses into their box by forcing us inside he has owned up to his his inner feelings on three successive defeats.

They don’t make good reading and suggest that he is deeply confused as to how beat teams rather than making us hard to beat which many believe what he is all about anyway.

In his first comment on the scenario he comes up with a half excuse declaring that’s the first time we haven’t scored a goal this season – OH DEAR!

No mention of the fact that over the last few games we have conceded 13 as the wheels have started to come off in a big way.

He was sensible enough to say he agreed we had missed chances and two or three opportunities to score. But he added that he didn’t believe it was game where we had nine or ten opportunities.

However, he then added: “We’ve not made as many chances as we should have done. I didn’t like that at Aston Villa, didn’t think we made enough, didn’t do it at Olympiacos and today we didn’t.

We attempted to but we just couldn’t really get through. We kept at it, probably got stronger in the last 15 minutes of the game. We came close once or twice, the ball never broke for us once or twice.”

In other words – or just one – which is what he is surely saying we have now failed three times on the trot. In those circumstances Mr Moyes time is running out isn’t it?
