Rice admits the Irons have ruined things

Declan Rice – along with Lukasz Fabianski – was again the stand out performer for the Hammers during the debacle that was Everton last night (Sat).

And if there are any who have the right to have a right to have a good moan-up it is him and the skipper.

Given the all round deficiencies of a strange looking team it was hardly surprising the defensive midfielder wasn’t  seen to his best effect.

Yet he still caught the eye with his range of passing and breaking up the play often single handed against a rampant Everton.

Mind you ‘rampant’ only because the Hammers were as lifeless and seemingly disinterested as we have seen them all season which would include the first four defeats of the campaign.

Pelegrini denies all suggestions  the squad has gone on its holidays and Rice was furious with the overall performance when interviewed with www.whufc.com explaining his views in very explicit terms.

He said: “It wasn’t good enough for us from the first minute to the last. Everton could have had five of six goals. We were too slow, too lethargic and they were first to every ball.

“We didn’t even create a chance – that sums it up, we lost and didn’t get the three points to get to seventh.

“It’s been an up and down season. We had a bad start, then gained some form and it’s been like that. 

“With the squad we’ve got we should be [aiming for] seventh and every chance we’ve had to move seventh we’ve lost and ruined that opportunity. We need to do better.”

  1. Well said yes we need much better there is no excuse for not trying very sloppy I’m not happy ! You look like your on holiday or disinterested whatever it’s not good enough. Sort it out and now that’s the last 3 games you’ve been **** !

  2. Rice is right & again at 20 already a leader on & off pitch.
    We would be mad to sell him even for £70m he is unreplacable at this time. And his ability to cover back break up play move it fwd be that DM we’ve needed for years not to mention youth & leadership. He is our spine. And he is great with the media too. Lad still lives with his parents he has great head on shoulders. Sell anyone but him.

    Him & Fab where the only real players & if not for Fab would of been 5-6 goals.

    Was off by MP. Chicharito should of started even tho is said not a good Lome CF he is the best of our lot right now & 3 man mid with Noble & Lanzini Ant & Snid on aides of Chic.

    Huge game could of gone to 7th
