Moyes On The Boys

John McCormick writes: Just before he slid on to the team coach for the long journey home (having exerted his authority and taken the whole of the back seat so he could kip) our manager penned a letter to M Salut (and maybe one or two others). M Salut, generous fellow that he is, kindly let me see it but told me to keep it to myself.

How could I do that?
So here it is, but don’t let on where it came from

Dear Colin,

I think we deserved to leave the game with a lot more than we have done.

We lost to a really good goal and there’s nothing we could have done about it.

There are positives to take. I think we played well and we had more control in the game than we have had in previous ones.

southamptoncupftWe did make some poor passes at times, but overall I think it was a good performance and I feel we shouldn’t be leaving on the back of a defeat.

We were much more improved tonight; I hope these improvements will start getting us the results we need.

The players can take confidence from how they played and the touches of the ball that they had.

It was great for the fans to make the trip and support us. We’re very grateful to them. They made great noise and we came so close to getting them a result.

Thanks for your support,
unnamed-14

    I thought we struggled to create much tonight. Our passing and decision making was poor and a goal looked a long way off. N’Dong and Rodwell are as poor as anything in the division. At least the fans are spared another 500 mile round trip.

    It’s all summed up perfectly here.
