David Moyes has admitted that some people may not like hearing him say that he wants his West Ham team to be hard to beat.
The East London outfit have taken 10 points from our opening four games, with only one of those matches being played at home.
This season could be a really prosperous one for West Ham.
However, David Moyes has suggested that some Hammers fans won’t be too happy about one thing that he is demanding from his players…
David Moyes has got it wrong with his comments on the West Ham fans’ perception of our playing style
And Moyes explained how he wants West Ham to be very hard to beat this season:
“Last season, we didn’t score enough goals and we want to improve on that, but still ensuring we are hard to beat. That might not be what everyone wants to watch or hear, but ultimately the way we’ve played is part of the reason we’ve won a European trophy and are back in Europe.”
I have to say, I really don’t agree with Moyes one little bit here.
Every single West Ham fan wants us to be hard to beat – I’m pretty sure of that.
All we want is some expansive, positive football going forward as well.
The early signs this season are very encouraging. Let’s just hope that we maintain some form of consistency throughout the campaign and push for a top seven finish.
West Ham were not hard to beat in the Premier League last season at all – we were a pushover in fact. And the Hammers fans hated every minute of it!
Trust me Dave, if we are hard to beat this season and show ambition going forward, there will not be one single unhappy West Ham fan.
