Vladimir Coufal took to Twitter yesterday to post a tweet after West Ham United lost 3-1 to Brighton and Hove Albion.
The Hammers put in a quite simply diabolical performance yesterday afternoon in the second-half, having led at half-time.
It was a truly pitiful display, especially given the context.
A win would have been enough to see us finish in sixth spot in the Premier League table and subsequently qualify for the Europa League for the second consecutive season.
The West Ham players quite simply bottled it when it mattered though. They were meek, gutless and showed absolutely zero courage on the ball.
The only positive is that yesterday’s performance would have hammered home to David Moyes just how much work is needed to be done at the London Stadium in the summer…
Coufal posts interesting tweet
The 29-year-old Czech Republic international has been nowhere near his best this season.
In all fairness to him, he has suffered with a persistent groin problem since September and recently underwent surgery to address the issue.
Coufal has improved steadily over the past few weeks and he is still a very popular player at the London Stadium.
It may well be the case that even he isn’t safe from the axe this summer though, after yesterday’s woeful performance.
Coufal posted a very interesting tweet after the match:
‘Hopefully’ seems like a really strange word to use.
Perhaps it was totally innocuous but we honestly believe that Moyes gave the players the hairdryer treatment after the game.
The Scot would undoubtedly have told the West Ham players that yesterday’s display was nowhere near good enough. Perhaps he told them all that none of their futures are guaranteed at West Ham as well, aside from perhaps Declan Rice and Jarrod Bowen.
The tweet from Coufal has certainly got the West Ham fans talking, that’s for sure. It remains to be seen whether it had any kind of extra meaning, however.
