Questions arise. Has the David Moyes post-match e-mail been replaced by a re-run of his general soundbites? Or was he just so disgusted by his team’s poor showing that he couldn’t be bothered? We may never know …
“It’s certainly a disappointing day; we didn’t get what we came for.
We were in good spirits and confident coming into the game, but we didn’t put that in to action.
We didn’t really get to grips with the game, we struggled with crossing the ball and we had a number of opportunities in the first half but just didn’t make the most of them.
Small things today didn’t go for us, Jermain [Defoe] missed his chance and there were a few more went begging. It just didn’t go our way.
We were on the back-foot after going behind and we just never really got back into the game.
We’ve been on a good run and we’re going to have to go on a number of good runs to be able to climb up the table and get the results we need over the course of the season.”
