What The Bosses Said - West Ham 1-4 Latics

What The Bosses Said - West Ham 1-4 Latics



Latics knocked West Ham out of the Capital One cup with a scintillating display at Upton Park, four goals and a great performance definitely had Roberto Martinez smiling

Mauro Boselli getting two goals would have given the Latics boss food for thought ahead of team selection for the weekend trip to Sunderland, he was full of praise for his record signing, on the other hand Hammers boss Sam Allardyce was none too pleased with his players and called them comical

Both Martinez and Allardyce spoke to the media after the game, let's see what they said:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez - 'We're happy with how it went given there were changes'

'It was a real test of character, especially from the young lads.

'To score four goals away is a real achievement, especially at West Ham with the way they have started the season.'

'He (Mauro Boselli) looked strong, he looked very sharp with his build-up play and then that clinical finishing in front of goal.

'I was very, very pleased with his work, it is now a matter of allowing him to settle into the Barclays Premier League.

'He had real good opportunity on Saturday and today, he wasn't afraid to get in good positions to score goals.

'He showed mental strength and how focused he is to be a success this season and to enjoy his football. If he is at his best he will be a real asset for us.'


West Ham boss Sam Allardyce - 'We couldn't defend a fish supper tonight'

'There were howling errors from our defenders in all four goals, it was comical.

'I never expected us to defend so poorly. It was really poor defending and all the good work we might have done with the ball meant nothing in the end because out of possession we were just rubbish.'

'I made lots of changes to see what the squad looks like and what some of the young ones are doing. They are doing well in the Under-21s league but unfortunately from 15 minutes on tonight they weren't good enough and in the end we have got beat 4-1 and it was very disappointing for me to sit there and watch that.

'It was an embarrassing defeat. They can't come knocking on my door about not playing now. They've got to take responsibility for their performance.

'They should have given me a lot more value for my money than they did.'
