Moyes on the boys

John McCormick writes: To read the above in our manager’s post-match missive* you might think we went down 5-6 to Bayern Munich or Real Madrid after storming their barricades for 90 minutes.

The truth is somewhat different as we once again failed to score or keep a clean sheet against mediocre opposition.

At least he gets it right about the fans:

Dear Colin,

Jake: ‘after a lengthy flirtation and courtship, the relationship is finally consummated.’

“It is a really sad day for the football club and I’m really sorry for the supporters.

We have travelled in great numbers away from home, we have had big home support and unfortunately we have not been able to get the results that everyone wanted.

In this final part of the season we have played much better and we played well today.

But nobody is going to talk about the performance. I thought we played well against West Ham and Middlesbrough in midweek but we have not turned our opportunities into goals.

The players were great today, we had nine out and I have praised the ones who played because it was never going to be an easy day.

We had to stand up and I think the ones who played showed fight and were committed.

I’m incredibly disappointed for the supporters. They come here in their thousands every home game and travel in their thousands as well.”

 

 

* Our manager could be wrong. Look out for Sixer’s honest, forthright and objective match report tomorrow
