Pundit Andy Townsend tore into West Ham United boss David Moyes for his negative tactics at Manchester City.
West Ham were comfortably beaten 2-0 in a complete no contest at the Etihad on Wednesday night.
The Hammers looked every inch a side heading for the Championship as they struggled for possession and barely registered a shot on goal.
West Ham fans were angered by the line-up and team selection from Moyes which saw West Ham go with a wingback system.
And they were proved right as it neither made them solid nor carry any extra attacking impetus.
Moyes opts for damage limitation at City
The likes of Sebastien Haller and Jarrod Bowen were left on the bench while Pablo Fornals was not in the matchday squad.
Bowen made a late cameo when it got to 2-0 but it was almost as pointless as Moyes’s old fashioned tactics.
Townsend was co-commentating on the game for Sky Sports. And he savaged Moyes for his negative outlook.
“I’m surprised we haven’t seen Bowen (sooner),” Townsend said in Sky Sports co-commentary on the game.
