Silva and Moyes don’t quite see eye to eye


Irons & Fulham bosses see the Hammers 2-0 loss slightly differently.

Fulham manager Marco Silva seemed to view Fulham’s 2-0 Premier League win over West Ham somewhat differently from David Moyes. I guess that’s a regular occurrence between any two managers following a game of football, but I do find Silva’s analysis far more reflective of the game.

Hammers manager Moyes seemed to be under the impression that his team enjoyed the best chances and controlled the game for large periods. However, Silva, whilst remaining respectful, seemed to disagree with that conclusion.

“It’s a great win for us,” Silva said. “We played well and, to be honest, I think we really deserved the three points. I have to say that, in the first 10 minutes, West Ham started better than us; they had a good chance to score with Antonio and we should have defended better in that situation.”

“But after that, when we scored the first goal, we started to control the game and we gained confidence. Overall during the match, we scored twice but created a lot more chances to score as well. Of course, West Ham had their chances.”

“I think we were really solid, we were compact, we kept our concentration most of the time. And when this happens, we know the quality that we have, the way we play. We were solid, and most of our transitions, our counter-attacks, they were really good.

“Being more clinical, with more killer instinct, we should have scored more goals and been even more comfortable winning this game.”

    Typical moyes never seems to watch the same game as everyone else we were awful on Sunday against Fulham yet he thinks we were the better side with more chances to win the game he is having a laugh Fulham were clearly the better side and could have scored more that’s got nothing to do with how we defended it was down to Fulham not taking the chances they had the only player to come out of the game for us was our keeper if not for him it could have been a cricket score moyes has clearly lost the plot and needs to go now as he is the cause of the problems that the players are having due to his negative tactics no wonder so many players want to leave the owners need to act this can’t continue

    That’s because Moyes is deluded and desperate.

    And Silva is a realist and a manager I sincerely hope opts to join us next season.
