West Ham fell to a 2-0 defeat against Malaga CF in the Schalke 04 final today, and once again the performance was shocking.
Sam Allardyce will have nowhere to hide as his team played a style that would make Bolton Wanderers look like Barcelona.
Allardyce will use the excuse that pre season matches are all about fitness – however I don’t believe this to be the case.
Yes, fitness of players is important, but so is performance – & if this pre season is anything to go by, we are in for a very long Premier League campaign.
We once again displayed a system that is set up to draw, and maybe nick a goal if lucky. It’s what we saw last season, and it’s not acceptable. Under Sam Allardyce creative players will never flourish because his system will not let them.
Why buy another striker under this man? 4-5-1 is what he opts for every game, and it simply doesn’t work.
This week RUGRID will send a letter to the owners of our club showing the results of the recent poll, and will express feelings of the majority of supporters in relation to our management set up.
