Moyes Is The Real Deal
Ever since Sir Alex Ferguson recommended that Manchester United appoint David Moyes as his successor, it is fair to say that things have not always gone smoothly. That is, until he took control of the Hammers…
Moyes has shown both tactical acumen and a whole range of talents as a manager that were not evident prior to this appointment.
However, it is now clear to see exactly why Ferguson singled out Moyes for the role.
In his post match interview on the BBC, Chelsea coach highlighted the role of individual errors over the last 3 matches. Tuchel said that if you do this, it will be hard to always get a result..and he is correct. However, was he referring to the error by Mendy that allowed West Ham to score the winner?
Whilst it is true that Mendy’s error…heading out to intercept a cross, when the ball was a wonderful shot? into the top left hand corner of the Chelsea goal….the tone of Tuchel’s interview seemed to be directed more at the team as a whole, rather than an individual, such as Mendy, in particular.
Despite that, the keeper was poorly positioned for the goal, an individual error to be sure. However, when the opposition were also surprised, some slack should be allowed. West Ham Manager Moyes said:
“So, was it a cross or was it shot?…(Hint: I was as surprised as you).”Twitter
