West Ham ace sends direct dig at David Moyes despite Spurs win

Posted by

James Ward-Prowse has openly criticised David Moyes for his approach and lack of confidence in West Ham’s players.

The scrutiny on Moyes’ tactics has been significant this season, justifiably so, as many fans express dissatisfaction with the playing style considering the talent available. There’s a noticeable contrast with the styles of West Ham’s Premier League rivals like Aston Villa, Newcastle, Brighton, and Spurs.

Some West Ham supporters believe the team won’t progress unless a progressive, modern, attack-minded manager replaces Moyes next summer. Despite a lackluster first half against Tottenham, West Ham rallied in the second half, displaying the performance levels they are capable of, securing a memorable comeback win with goals from Bowen and James Ward-Prowse.

West Ham faced jeers after a lackluster display in a 1-1 draw against Palace, and the uninspiring performance persisted in a disappointing first half at Tottenham with just 28% possession.

James Ward-Prowse openly criticised Moyes for his approach, emphasizing Moyes’ emphasis on neutralizing Spurs rather than leveraging West Ham’s talented team to exploit their rivals.

Ward-Prowse hinted that the players took charge, rallying themselves in the second half to showcase their ability to play football.

“Good result, good performance,” Ward-Prowse told Amazon Prime TV.

“I think a lot of the pre-game preparation was around them and their qualities.

“But we know what we’re about as a team and as a club.

“And I think that epitomised the group that we’ve got at the moment, it’s a strong group and heading in the right direction…”

With the recent win, the Hammers are now three points behind Spurs in 5th and six points off the Champions League spots.

  1. Paqueta, JWP, Alvarez, Bowen, Kudus we should have the confidence to go toe to toe with any team and boss possession

  2. Spurs need to be more direct on goal that’s for certain. But the result itself was a really poor reflection of a game which Tottenham largely dominated though failed to kill off to their detriment. Besides conceding to ridiculously bad goals through abject defensive errors they continuously overplayed the ball in attack squandering countless chances. And despite going behind credit is due to West Ham for not giving up of course.However that said does anyone really truly believe they were worth the victory! For me more a case of Tottenham once again causing their own unnecessary problems, I just don’t get it?

    1. West Ham always give possession to the opposition, and don’t press high. it wasn’t because Spurs were great, they got to the 18 yard and then mostly had nothing more to offer.
      There were ky a few decent opportunities Zouma hitting the post, richarlason header, bisouma miss.
      It seemed like Spurs dominated live, but watch it back, Moyes did a number on Ange.
      Spurs attack like crazy and that leaves them open, this style would never win a league. Teams don’t deserve to win just because they have possession or because they try hard to attack.
