What The Bosses Said - Latics 2-1 West Ham

What The Bosses Said - Latics 2-1 West Ham



A very entertaining game of football, especially if you are a Latic, saw Wigan Athletic beat West Ham at the DW Stadium by two goals to one.

Following the game both managers spoke to the press, let's take a look at what they had to say:

Latics boss Roberto Martinez:

'We want to be perfect in every game and conceding the goal at the death is perhaps the only sour note and would be ultra-critical to focus too much on it.

'I thought from start to finish we showed very good levels; we knew one goal would not be enough to win the game and that the two-goal cushion was vital.

'We had flashes of possession which was as good as we've seen this season, but what also pleased me was the way we handled their threat and pressure in our defensive third.

'We kept the ball well under pressure and controlled the game, which against this West Ham side who are in form is a great achievement.'

'I thought James McArthur and James McCarthy got forward well all afternoon and were a real threat to the West Ham defence.

'The timing of James' run for his goal made the play an impossible one to stop and he took an important opportunity very well.

'To score goals from open play is very pleasing, but everything we did on and off the ball was of the highest level.'



West Ham boss Sam Allardyce:

'It was a bit of a push on Winston Reid for their first goal, but it was a brilliant volley. And they deserved to win.

'We didn't play any football today, we didn't get past half-decent. I'm disappointed our performance has reduced to such a level.

'It wasn't about Wigan today, it was about us not using the ability we've got. We can't keep giving the ball back to them.'

'We were not good enough, in any shape or form. Our problems were all over the pitch.'
