Moyes tells Rice that’s how he will learn

David Moyes had tough words for young Declan Rice after the 4-1 defeat by Arsenal.

But the manager was keen to make it clear that as a young player “that’s how you learn and hopefully he will come back better.”

Speaking to BBC Sport he said: “”We just didn’t start the second half as well and they got a foothold in the game. We came back into it but in the end we probably had too many attacking players on the pitch and ruined our balance of making sure we did the defensive job well.

“Great credit to lads for how well they done and stuck at it. Unfortunately a young player [Declan Rice] makes a mistake – but that’s how you learn, make mistakes and get on with it – and hopefully come back better. Joe Hart made two very good saves. We need them to make saves.”

“It [Wenger’s announcement] did make it more difficult but I didn’t think it played that way. We did a really good job, contained them for long periods.

  1. If we only had 1 attacking player on the pitch he’d probably still think we had too many.
    Dour, uninspiring and turgid (generally). Get used to it guys should he stay on.

  2. I hate Gooners, but they’re a total different level than us and true class always shines through…they have different levels of fitness and guile than we have ..it immeasurable, although we showed up when the when the time comes to put the mettle on the peddle that’s exactly what they done…..there’s no shame in losing to Arsenal at the Emirates….fair play to them….we move on…..we’ve lost to worse teams this season and at our place.
    No qualms with the result …that’s life …we’re irons and we can’t wait for this dour season to end …let’s hope we don’t go on some silly frigging mission abroad in close season where we will definitely pick up injuries .

  3. We are middle to bottom feeders in the premier league’s (fish tank ) Arsenal are middle to top feeders ? Simple as that!!!! Next week we have the premier league’s top feeder??? We cannot go gung ho against the goal machine that is Man City??? Or will we ? Is it containment or Tora Tora tora ??? Who would be a manager of a team with no money 😁😁😁😁

  4. Also is it a good thing or bad thing , Hart cannot play next week ? When on loan you can’t play against the team that loans you out ? I for one would have given Adrian a run out today to get him in shape for next week???

    • I would go a step further on the GK front once we are confirmed as staying up I would give Trott a game with a view as him being back up for whoever next season but I cant see forward thinking like that happening

  5. I think that (like Slav earlier in the season) Moyes now has 4 games to save his job – I think that Stoke will lose to Liverpool (Klopp will water the Anfield pitch 😉 and are doomed but Southampton may get a win somewhere – I’d hate to be listening for all the scores while we are playing Everton (perhaps our only hope is for BFS to tell Everton to respect the point)

    • Fat Sam’s contract wasn’t renewed at West Ham because of the fans. He would love to relegate us
