What we hoped would be a thrilling encounter between two sides who have had some epic battles in the past, turned into something of a bore draw.

It was, what some might say, a typical end of season game, a drab affair whereby everybody is just waiting for the season to end and their holidays to start.

After the game, David Moyes charmed the media in his interview with Sky Sports, who covered the game live, with the BBC picking up on the following remarks,

“Our boys showed a great attitude after getting safe at the weekend.

“We have conceded a lot of goals this season so a clean sheet is great. At this stage of the season, you don’t get great games.

“Declan Rice played very well tonight, the boys at the back did a good job. With a bit more care we would have scored on the break.”

Yes, a clean-sheet was good, yes Declan played well but did we really create enough chances to nick a win?

I don’t think so.

But if West Ham were disappointing then the same can be said of Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United, considering some players were given chances to impress and gate-crash the FA Cup Final, they were only slightly less lacklustre than us.

However, that’s enough of looking back, let’s look forward to the last game of the season when Big Sam brings his Everton side to the London Stadium.

I wonder what kind of reception he’ll get from the Hammers support?
