Soucek admits lack of motivation


Honest Tomas Soucek has admitted that he didn’t feel motivated last season.

And that of courseĀ  may well have been why his form slumped so badly.

The Czech midfielder was heavily criticised throughout the campaign but looks almost back to his best this season and has scored goals against TSC and Lincoln City on the last two Thursday evenings.

Calls for him to be dropped by David Moyes were regular throughout the season as the Hammers struggled in the Premier League.

But in conversation with a London Evening Standard journalist Dom Smith he has revealed that he didn’t feel right as the Irons struggled through a difficult season.

His goal last night and that in the Europa Cup leaves him just four behind his tally for the whole of last season.

And Smith revealed via X that he had spoken to the Hammers No 28 who had explained that he hadn’t “felt that motivated” in 22/23 campaign which clearly didn’t help his form.

    If he needed motivation then it shows Moyes should have dropped him. Many of us believed that jast seasons problems were about Moyes management,, team selection and set up. He could blow it again this year with misuse of talent unless he pays attention to it. Stop picking favourites regardless of form, use talent not height or age, get more out of your subs.
