Second half performances

Premier League West Ham United

comment on the article

Anyone else feel that we do alright in the first half and then have no idea in the second. It seems as if tactically Grant has it right to start and then falls apart after half time. Maybe it's a poor team talk or other managers are tactically better once they've seen our team.

It seems to happen week in week out and it is really frustrating. Especially as when it is clear for us all to see he doesn't change anything and waits for the other team to score.

?? they played ok in the 2nd half, coulda scored a few, Piq's red cost us, as we had no one up front or on the bench that could hold up play. come on Ba.

M1gg1ns: I didn't see the game but the way I heard about it on the bbc online text service, Yes Everton had a lot of the ball, but they did nothing with it! TBH, we should have scored a few more goals today, that's how good we were!

I know people don't normally agree with me, but the sending off is pathetic! on the other hand, Piqs knows that and he still celebrated like he's won the euromillions.

We are undoubtedly playing better football in the last 10 games, but we desperately need to win a couple of the next 6 games, otherwise we could subside.

Oh well, 1 point is better than nothing, so got to be positive. Yes we should have won but that's the way it goes. We can't change the result, so let's support the team and just hope the teams around us balls it up!

Westhamuwhat

I totally agree (you left out the last 2 cup games too.

It feels like 2 points lost now but I'd have taken a poit before the game against what is a real bogey team for us.

Couldn't we employ Ray Wilkins just to give the half time team talks?

westhamuwhat, you're spot on.
Against Birmingham as well in the 1st leg totally bossed the 1st half, should have been 2 or 3 up like yesterday but only 1-0 and we come out almost anticipating an onslaught, drop deep, invite them onto us and hey presto concede the equaliser.
Ironically losing Obinna forced us to focus on what we were doing, played to our strength and won the game.
I think its too much tinkering, just tell them at half time keep doing what you're doing, more of the same just like the good result at Fulham then four changes next game against Everton, ok only 2 days later but that shouldn't be a problem cos if your winning games that breeds confidence.ok

I thought we done alright 2nd half. Everton as the home side had to go for it, but thought we done well on the counter attack. Also think we had a decent shout for a pen 2nd half when Coleman blocked Bridges cross with his arm

I'm a bluenose and was at the game yesterday. West Ham played really well, worked hard and Everton were generally quite poor. We desperately need someone like Scotty Parker, he bossed that game. The Hammers just need a bit of tinkering and/or a bit of luck. Hope West Ham stay up, always had a soft spot for them
