Hislop unimpressed with Stamford Bridge chief Mourinho.
If a small club does it v a big club it’s “19th century football”. If a big club does it v a smaller club it’s “tactical genius”. #confused

Former West Ham goalkeeper Shaka Hislop has issued a thinly-veiled criticism of Jose Mourinho on social networking site twitter.
The 45-year-old’s tweet referred to a comment made by Chelsea manager Mourinho in which he described West Ham’s football as ’19th century’ following a 0-0 draw with the Hammers at Stamford Bridge in January.
West Bromwich Albion v West ham United
“Good odds on the draw as WBA have not been able to win at home in the last 8 games played at the Hawthorns, while West Ham need some kind of positive result after 3 consecutive losses.
5 of the last 6 meetings between these two sides ended with draws and it-s very likely this one will follow the trend. ”

The visitors undoubtedly played for a draw in West London but Mourinho’s Chelsea have done the same on several times this season, most recently in the 0-0 Champions League semi-final first leg at Atletico Madrid.
Like others, Hislop, who played for West Ham in two spells between 1998 and 2006, has been left confused by the double standards, which has seen pundits and the media praise Mourinho for his tactics yet small smaller clubs like West Ham for being with happy with a point at the homes of the big clubs.
