Rodgers warns Hammers: “We will attack the game”

West Ham will be attacked from the start of tomorrow’s game against Leicester City according to Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers.

The Irishman saw his squad battered over a dreadful start to this campaign but since giving midlands neighbours a 4-0 hiding their fortunes have taken a dramatic upturn and they are no equal with us on points and ahead on goal difference.

Victories over Leeds Leeds United (2-0), Wolves (4-0) and Everton (2-0) have seen them score eight goals and keep three clean sheets which sees them into a comfortable mid table position.

The Hammers need a similar uplift to that experienced by tomorrow’s opponents and this would be a brilliant game in which to gain a much-needed result and confidence boost.

However, Rodgers made it clear the Foxes were going to have a real go at the London Stadium and thus the Irons cannot afford another slow starting performance.

The Foxes boss said: “We’ll just attack the game how we have recently. We’ve been scoring goals away from home and we’re hard to beat, which is important – but they’re a good side, with some really good players.

David Moyes is under increasing pressure from some members of the Hammers fanbase – a position experienced by Rodgers until recently and he added: “There’s a real witch hunt for managers to lose their jobs and I don’t see that changing,” he’d said.

“It feels like you can’t have a downturn without calls for change. There was no mystery for us, our results just weren’t good enough. Now we’ve had some better results.”

  1. What I want to see is the hard work , pressing , breaking up play , bloody hard work and team spirit . We can win if we play our best and start from the fort whistle till the end . We are good enough , play as a team , heads up and believe . Come on lads , let’s do it . COYI ⚒

  2. Certain win for Leicester especially with moyes still there and only hope the board wake up and get this clown moyes gone for good. His had since last Dec to change and can’t and won’t. We’re in relegation form and need the board and especially kretinskys input to kick this dreadful draconian coach into touch . Get it done as already waited way too long to do this .

    • Yes, and for those who want to know a potential replacement, look no further than across London at Brentford – and he can bring Ivan Toney with him.

  3. Brendan Rodgers said “… we’re hard to beat, which is important – but they’re a good side, with some really good players.” I reckon he’s right on the first and third points but wrong on the second. Leicester are hard to beat – true. We have some really good players – true. But we are NOT a good side. Not at the moment anyway. We SHOULD be a good side. We have the talent and the know how.

    It’s really all down to David Moyes how we go about this game. Play the same way as we have been doing in the last few games and there will only be one outcome. And it won’t be pretty.

    Come on David, unleash the shackles of our men and let them go for it – from the very start of the game. For Auld Lang Syne, David, for the sake of Auld Lang Syne!

    Come On You Irons – get us a win and save David’s job!
