Moyes “pig sick” again leaving Brentford defeated


Moyes “pig sick”

David Moyes admitted he left again Brentford pig sick after another defeat by the derby day London opponents.

And he pointed to the second half defending by players who in CandH’s opinion let themselves down in a game that was there for the winning.

After going 2-1 up we allowed the Bees to dominate throughout the second half bar ten minutes towards the end but a key moment came when  Konstantinos Mavropanos headed past Alphonse Areola .

The game was won by a Nathan Collins header at the far post and although they pressed at the end there was no way back

Moyes “pig” sick by another Brentford win

Although the boss found some good points with the performance which included some attacking effort he was deeply disappointed with the goals conceded.

He thought bits of the performance were okay notably in the first half whilst also believing we gave the Bees too much territory just before the break which he thought let them back into the game.

He said in his post match presser: “We set out at half-time to try and get the third goal and try to play better. Because we had the two up front I thought, the moment we gave it to those two, we might have a better chance of scoring and we should have done.  But the other part of that is we should have defended better. 

We got to half-time 2-1 up and the idea was to not concede any more goals. If you don’t concede any more then we win the game, but we did concede and I didn’t like the goals we let in. They came from second phase set-pieces. The first part of them we’d dealt with and defended them, and then we didn’t defend the second part. 

We missed a couple of players with suspension today and Kurt Zouma had an injury, so we were a little bit short, but there were some good things. 

We got the lead and we tried to play with two up front today. But we’ve come here too often and I hate the feeling that we’re losing to Brentford every time. I’ve left pig-sick every time and I’m leaving again pig-sick.”

    The problems always come when we “try not to concede,” because our whole team drops 30 meters giving the opposition both space and encouragement to attack and ultimately score.

    I’ve supported Moyes up until now, but it’s enough. Time and time again we pull tactics like it’s the last 5-6 minutes of the game when there’s 30 min+ to play, and the end game is almost always the same. Definition of insanity, anyone?

    Tbh I’m Pig sick of Moyes and his endless excuses and it looks like to me that the players are also Pig Sick of him. Mubama and Cornet need to leave as soon as they can for their careers if they can’t be given minutes over Fornals and Ings.

    Surely the board must see what’s going on, beating Arsenal reserves never fooled me.

    Yes sick of your inane subs and tactics Moyes, Fornals and Ings on, swapping one for one to a predictable timing, no effect on the result. Mubama and Cornet never to be seen. What an embarrassment of tactical nativity. Two one up at half time, everyone drop back 25 metres and slow it up, passing going nowhere. Awful, just awful.
