Slav gets to grips with those errors


bilic-slaven-west-ham_3313638Slaven Bilic has addressed the entire team about the cock-ups which are costing the Hammers dear.

It seems that every single error committed punished at the back is punished with a goal and Bilic declared: “We are the top team at making the mistakes which become assists for the other team.

And he added: “It’s a lack of concentration. A blip in your head. Whatever. It is a lack of reaction in the transition.

“Like the third goal against Spurs, it was a mistake from a player (James Tomkins). We gave them the ball. It was dangerous but it did not have to be a goal. Other players had to react to stop Harry Kane, or the ball coming to him.

“We have spoken to the players. I’m not just talking about the four at the back, I’m talking about the whole team in terms of defending.”
