Moyes on the boys

A dire end to a dire season. In the end Chelsea strolled past us.

David Moyes says in his post-match missive that we tried to make the gap as small as possible. Did we succeed? Probably, because it’s a massive gap between us and even 16th place.

What else does he have to say? Find out for yourself, here’s what he wrote:

“I don’t think we deserved [the game] to finish in the fashion it did.

Jake: ‘2016/17 season, bog off and don’t come back’

For long periods the players did their best to hang in there. Chelsea are top for a reason and we tried to make the gap between the two teams as small as possible.

Players came in and acquitted themselves well. Joleon Lescott did fine in his first game, against a top team.

We had some of the young lads with us and it’s good for them to see what the top level is like.

If they can take something from it, it’s to look at the size of the top players, their ability and how they play.

We’ve had a difficult week with Arsenal and now Chelsea – two difficult games.

It’s been painful at times. We are gutted about the season, but now we have to get over it quickly and get ready to go again.”
