Moyes brush aside off-field occurrence in Brighton Loss

Moyes brush aside off-field occurrence in Brighton Loss

West Ham United Boss, David Moyes has stated that the internal occurrences within the London club are not a factor in their recent loss to Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

The Hammers who has witnessed an upsurge in form since the appointment of the former Everton Manager suffered a shocking 3-1 defeat to Brighton last weekend and reports emanated that the recent sack of the club’s director of Player recruitment could have been responsible.

Tony Henry, who previously has eld the highly revered position in the club hierarchy was fired after claims that he was linked with racism. He was believed to have mentioned that the club will restrict the number of African players they bring into the squad as a result of their despicable attitude and poor orientation based on a report.

When the Manager was questioned about the influence of such reports on the squad, Moyes said: “It had no effect whatsoever. The club has done what they think they have to do and move on, and we have to. It’s always the manager’s job but I don’t think the events would have any serious influence.”

West Ham defender, Arthur Masuaku has been previously banned for six games after he was caught spitting on an opponent in the Hammer’s FA Cup loss to Wigan Athletic last week before the recent Henry sack. “Maybe that’s just West Ham, I don’t know,” Moyes added.

“In management, no day is ever dull. The job brings up some difficult situations and some strange ones.” The loss to Brighton left West Ham in 12th on 27 points with just three points above the relegation zone in a very tight bottom half of the table.

Westham players lacked Quality and Steel – Moyes

Westham Manager, David Moyes has stated that his players were deficient in “quality” and “steel” as they were forced to a 0-0 draw by League One side Shrewsbury Town in the FA Cup on Sunday.

The former Manchester United Manager made four changes to the team that got a point from their game at Wembley with Tottenham on Monday but the matchday team was without desire and quality as they had their goalkeeper, Joe Hart to thank for his heroic display against his boyhood club.

Moyes’ side had only two attempts on target all 90 minutes and if not for Hart’s brilliance to deny Shaun Whalley and Mat Sadler, the Hammers could have been eliminated from the glamorous competition.

With his famous FA Cup shocker by Shrewsbury in 2003 at his time at the helms at Everton still fresh in his memory, Moyes believes the replay will be a good time for his squad to show what they are made of.

“I don’t think we showed any quality and the biggest disappointment is I didn’t think we showed enough steel,” he said.

“When you come to places like this you have to show yourself physically, that you can battle and compete.

“I didn’t think we did that at all and that was the worst thing about it. Sometimes it’s not easy. The conditions – the sun – didn’t make it easy for the players to see things around them but that didn’t stop the fact that we didn’t compete on a lot of occasions.

“Obviously if you compare Wembley and Thursday night, it’s a big change. But it’s a mentality thing.

“You’ve got to go and show that wherever you are, you’ve got to respect whatever players you’re against and recognize it’s going to be tough. For the first half especially, we didn’t compete at all.”

Our aim now is to try and neglect talks about relegation – Moyes

Westham Manager, David Moyes insists his side will do more to ignore talks about relegation battles as he travels with his squad to face Tottenham at Wembley on Thursday.
Their last minute 2:1 victory over Alan Pardew’s West Bromwich Albion who are down in 19th place on Tuesday night was enough for them to be out of the relegation zone.
While speaking with reporters ahead of the match today, Moyes said: “The aim now is to try and not be talking about it, and to look up,”
“The players know we have missed one or two opportunities to be further away.
“You can see how the Premier League is going to go between now and the end of the season, games are going to be won and lost on really fine margins.
“There is a lot of tension at the bottom because two defeats and you slide back in, two wins and you can be talking about mid-table.
“Spurs have got a really good team so it will be hard work for us.
“But we will go there with the same spirit, attitude and determination we have shown in all the games and you never know.”

Moyes Wants To Build Squad In January

January will be busy for us – Moyes

Former Manchester United Manager, David Moyes picked up Westham’s top job a few weeks ago and he is quite keen to boost his squad by the time the transfer window opens in January.

Westham endured a disastrous start to the season with only three wins in 17 games which have left them in 19th position in the league. They have however enjoyed some instant rejuvenation days into Moyes reign as they took all 3 points against Chelsea last weekend and also forced Arsenal to a goalless draw on Wednesday to go level on points with West Bromwich Albion and Crystal Palace.

“I hope it is busy, the January window,” Moyes told a news conference. “In recent years, it has not been as busy as people had made it out to be. But it is not the easiest month (to do transfer business).

“I would like to add to the squad if we can do. I think it is really important that we try and get players who we think can make a difference and who can more or less go straight into the team. But that is not the easiest thing to do.”

The London club’s battle for survival will continue when they travel to 15th-placed Stoke City later on Saturday.
