Allardyce slams West Ham’s performance

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has slated his teams’ performance after their 2-1 defeat away at Wigan yesterday, as reported by talkSPORT.

West Ham were second best throughout the game at the DW Stadium and the manager felt that the performance was of a bottom three side rather than a top ten side which he expects from his players.

“It was a bottom three performance rather than a top four display. We never hit the level of performance that we know we can,

“We never really tested Wigan. When we got into the final third we hardly produced a ball of quality to cause them a problem. We also kept giving the ball away before we could get into their half. It was a lackluster performance all round in possession and out of possession.

“We were chasing around instead of staying as a tight solid unit. We had too many players not hitting their top form,”
