What the bosses said Latics West Ham

What the bosses said Latics West Ham

The game between Wigan Athletic and West Ham at the JJB has got a lot of people talking, the state of the pitch, the referee, Bents miss, the result, but the two opinions that cut the most are the managers, Steve Bruce and Alan Curbishley, lets see what they have to say:

Latics boss Steve Bruce:

'The lads rolled up their sleeves and put in a good performance.

'There is nothing we can do about the state of our pitch but we played to the conditions and I give credit to both sets of players.

'It was a good time to play West Ham with them having had a big win against Liverpool in midweek, it was always going to be difficult for them.'

Hammers boss Alan Curbisley:

'I was disappointed with the manner of the goal that we conceded because it was from a set-piece.

'The pitch was dreadful and it is embarrassing that we played on a pitch like that.

'Any team coming here need to be prepared to play on it. It is not conducive to anyone trying to get the ball on to the floor and passing it.'

Forget the pitch Alan you were second best today and should have lost by more than one goal.

What a bunch of prima-donnas as well, never had West Ham down as divers but at times it was embarrassing
