Jamie Carragher highlighted one thing that West Ham are missing, when speaking on Sky Sports last night (Monday November 30th, 19:54).
The Sky Sports pundit suggested that the Hammers lack a bit of craft and guile.
It’s hard to argue with Carragher. We are a really solid unit. The team is well organised, well drilled and each player knows his individual job to a tee.
David Moyes deserves great credit for the manner in which he has transformed West Ham since taking over at the London Stadium for a second time 11 months ago.
At times we do seem to lack any kind of creativity and flair in the final third, however.
Said Benrahma could change all of that of course. Only time will tell as far as that’s concerned.
Carragher told Sky Sports last night how he would like to see West Ham add a little bit of craft to their play:
“I almost want to see West Ham over the next few years become what Everton were under David Moyes. He’s proven before at a club of a similar size that he can do a brilliant job. I actually look at the team he’s got now, I think eventually he will want a bit more craft in it. But right now he’s built a really big, strong and powerful team who can succeed in the Premier League.”
The main thing for West Ham fans is that we aren’t an easy touch anymore.
It’s great to see a hard working, well drilled team in action week in week out. Because it certainly hasn’t always been that way over the past few years.
Let’s hope the boys keep it up for the remainder of the campaign. If they do, West Ham could be in for a really successful 2020/21 season.
And perhaps then Moyes can look at bringing in some players who will add the craft that Carragher was talking about.
