Reid sees plenty of positives

reidWinston Reid was pleased with the performances of the Hammers new boys and believes there were plenty of positives from the weekend game against Spurs.

Hopefully that will all encourage him to sign a new deal but the Kiwi central defender wasn’t straying into that area after the game.

Speaking to he said: “There were some good positives out there. The new boys did well, Aaron [Cresswell] and Cheikhou [Kouyate] from the start and Enner [Valencia] came on as well.

” The squad is looking strong and I’m sure everybody is going to be pushing for the next game to try and improve.

“Cheikhou showed his versatility by moving back to centre half at the end, and I think I’m going to need to learn some French if that’s going to happen again!

“He did well on Saturday and you can see why he was brought to the club. There were positives to take from the performance, the boys did pretty well out there.

We couldn’t get the ball in the back of the net ourselves and unfortunately they’ve done that.

“The main lesson is to make sure we make the most of when we’re on top. It was a disappointing game, it wouldn’t go in and that’s it.”
