Avram Grant Disappointed With Defence

Avram Grant Disappointed With Defence

Hammers boss Avram Grant pointed to the fact that his team defended badly in the Carling Cup semi final last night.

Grant claimed his side looked a far better bet to reach the final of the competition, but they lacked concentration from set pieces and that`s why his team have missed out.

He said: 'I felt we played well first half, scored one goal and could have scored more than one.

'In the second half Birmingham scored from two corners. We didn't deal with those very well. I am disappointed.

'I am not happy that we are not in the final. We did well in the competition, won a lot of games, and even the first half here was good.

'But unfortunately we are not at Wembley.'


He added: 'I don't think it will have an impact on the players' confidence for the relegation battles ahead.

'You saw we played well in the first half.

'We did not play like a team who are bottom but we have to defend better than set pieces.

'I can take something from the recent games but football is a game of results.

'We wanted to be in the final and the two goals from corners made the difference.

'We will continue fighting. I don't think we didn't play well. We will not give up, we will keep fighting.'

Have never really taken to AG as a manager. He is so sorry looking and doesn't seem to be able to raise his team when he has to change things around. The second half showed up how much brum wanted it whereas Hammers seemed to just collapse in a fragile heap once you had scored your first.
