Moyes: “We can give ourselves a great chance”

David Moyes is taking absolutely nothing for granted over the next few days despite a cracking point at Chelsea which provided as much relief and optimism as we have enjoyed all season.

Now though it’s Stoke – a monster game on Monday evening – which can finally help remove every worry crease from the brows of us long suffering Irons.

And Moyes remains upbeat whilst ensuring we remain a little cautious declaring: “I thought we played against a really slick Chelsea team, particularly in the first half.

“We gave away a really poxy first goal. If it had been a really good footballing goal… it was a bad goal. But we were always in with a chance at 1-0.”

Despite that he insists the position in the  table ” is not comfortable enough” and added: “I want to try and push on. We’ve picked up four points from two games.

“After the situation against Burnley, the club and the team have done a brilliant job, and looking to Stoke he declared: “We’ll get ready for that one and, if we perform the way we’ve been doing, we’ll give ourselves a great chance.”

  1. “A cracking win at Chelsea”?

    We obviously watched different games!

  2. Did i miss a goal? I’m sure we drew with Chelsea but there you go, poor old Hugh can’t be right every time. Once in a while would be good though!!

  3. Smart arses!! It FELT like a win to me…

  4. LOL….sorry boys Senior moment

  5. To draw at Chelsea with our survival at stake was huge . Make no mistake , it was up to Chelsea to win to keep Thier Europe dream alive ,,,, they didn’t . We did , and kept our Premiership hopes alive . I just wish everyone would be happy right now . West Ham United are looking good , and with the injury list getting shorter we can gain optimism for this season as a Premiership side for 2018/19 . For crying out loud , nobody happy when we lose and fans being negative when we pick up points !!! , you couldn’t invent it . We have the fight and will to get the points we need . Just need 100% support and a team that wants to get over the finish line ….. Moyes is doing a very good job and all he needs is support and a few more points ,,,, be they lucky or deserved makes no difference . We are in a position to take advantage and get lucky . Every team needs a bit of luck now and then .
    Well it’s about time we had some after a season full of injuries and internal probs .
    Stoke , Man City , Man Utd & Everton are games where we can take advantage ,,,, so let’s take it and use it .

  6. if we dont beat stoke it could go down to the final game
