Lukasz Fabianski spoke to WHUFC.com and shared what the West Ham players thought during the half-time break against Wolves on Sunday.
The Hammers dominated proceedings inside the first 45 minutes against Wolves at the London Stadium on Sunday.
Somehow we were held at bay though and the two sides entered the half-time interval with the scores tied up at 0-0.
The West Ham players raised their levels once again after the second-half kicked off, however, and ended up winning the match 1-0 thanks to a Tomas Soucek strike after 59 minutes.
It was a hugely important three points for the Hammers and we are now in a really strong position to finish inside the top six for the second consecutive season.
Lukasz Fabianski lifts lid on halt-time West Ham team talk during Wolves clash
David Moyes deserves huge credit for the manner in which he’s managed to turn things around at the London Stadium over the past two years or so.
We must remember that West Ham were on the brink of relegation when Moyes came back to East London in December 2019.
Sure, we’ve all criticised Moyes recently, especially during the January transfer window. That is totally undeserved though. And Sunday’s win against Wolves proved just how good we can be on our day.
Fabianski spoke to the club’s official website and lifted the lid on what was said during the half-time interval against Wolves:
“In our half-time talk, we were pleased with the way we performed in the first half. Obviously, we were not able to score a goal, but I think the belief was that, if we continued to play like we did in the first half, we were going to get another chance. We managed to get one and put it away, so we’re happy with the result against a very good opponent. In general, I think we can be quite happy.”
The sense that I get from those comments is that the West Ham players are still supremely confident in their ability, in spite of a poor they’ve been at times recently.
The Hammers have some huge games coming up against Liverpool, Aston Villa and Tottenham in the Premier League, Southampton in the FA Cup and two ties against Sevilla in the Europa League.
West Ham will need to be on our very best form if we are to emerge from the next three weeks unscathed.
If we play anything like we did against Wolves for all of the upcoming matches, however, we will be just fine, there’s no doubt about that.
