Moyes on the boys v Burnley: ‘unfortunately the point we’ve got today isn’t enough’

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick writes: Two weeks ago we started positively against Man  City and we showed fight. Our manager found things to praise. This week, despite a couple of positive comments, he’s not as upbeat. Nor  am I or, I suspect, anyone who went to the SOL as a home fan. We are just not good enough […]

Moyes on the boys v Man City: praise where praise is due.

John McCormick writes: For a while it looked like we might get something. We shaped up as a football team, with Borini and Januzaj being positive, and even Billy Jones getting close, and we showed fight. Then they scored, and scored a second, and it became once again close, but no cigars. And by the end of […]

Moyes on the boys post Everton – and I beg to differ

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

I got back from Goodison about half an hour ago. Pete Sixsmith and I were in agreement with most things during the game and in the post-game discussion on the way to the station, where we went in different directions. I won’t spoil Pete’s report by saying what we discussed but I will give you […]

Moyes on the boys v Southampton: “we played well and with confidence”

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick, feeling really let down and thankful he didn’t go, writes: The boys fly off to the States this week. If you were Donald Trump would you let them in? And if they get in who do you hope stays there? It doesn’t sound as if we were destroyed in David Moyes’s post match missive. […]

Moyes on the boys v Palace: “We took our chances”

John McCormick writes: I didn’t hear David Moyes in his pre-match interview. Apparently he sounded very relaxed and pleased with the players he’d brought in (or could it have been because of one he’d got out?). And after the game? I still haven’t heard him but I did get a copy of his post-game message. Here […]

Moyes on the boys v Spurs: It’s a good point

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

John McCormick writes: I had a slow-to-stop feed and couldn’t get the audio from the SAFC website so I have very little to go on. I did think this was a hard fought point and that we made, and needed, our luck. What of Mr. Moyes, who had a ringside seat with no stuttering, pauses […]

Moyes on the boys v West Bromwich Albion: “We’re not too far away”

Moyes on the boys

John McCormick writes: Were there any positives to take from today? I’m trying to think of some but I’m struggling. I suppose, with Palace losing, that we’re not out of it, which is something David Moyes alluded to on “Radio 5 live” after the game. If I remember correctly he said we’re not too far away […]

Moyes on the Boys at Burnley: finding a plus from another negative night

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

Malcolm Dawson writes: the manager has had some flak recently for his reluctance to blood some of our younger, more inexperienced players and here was a chance for him to do so. With limited resources and a game against West Brom coming up however, the only fit members of the first team squad he chose […]

Moyes on the Boys after Stoke debacle: ‘just 20 dodgy minutes’

Moyes On The Boys(featured image)

Monsieur Salut writes: people left their Stadium of Light seats in droves, Pete Sixsmith sent demoralised text messages and I ended up giving three-out-of-10s galore in my ESPN FC ratings. So what did David Moyes make of it? Well, he has either lost track of time or, when claiming SAFC matched Stoke for all but […]

Moyes on the Boys after FA Cup boredraw: deserved praise for Rodwell

Monsieur Salut writes: now that we’ve done away with the nonsenses of ‘Dear Colin’ at the beginning and ‘All the best’ at the end, e-mails from the manager have an impersonal and sometimes perfunctory look. But what else could David Moyes say about the drab affair that was Sunderland 0-0 Burnley, the outcome probably the worst […]
