Pulis on... West Ham Utd


Filed: Wednesday, 27th October 2010
By: Staff Writer


In what amounted to one of the shortest press conferences ever, a disappointed Tony Pulis reflects on Stoke's extra-time Carling Cup defeat...

We're disappointed. We thought we played very well in the first half, at this point I felt we had more opportunities. Our final pass was poor but we needed that second goal.

West Ham threw everything at us in the second half which is to be expected. We had to make two substitutions with Kenwyne [Jones] and Jermain who were under the weather a bit, which didn't help us. I felt Kenwyne was very good when he was on the pitch and was a threat.

But fair play to West Ham, you've got to give them credit. Obinna came on and young Noble; you know, they changed the game really.

Were you surprised at the way West Ham came back?

No, they've got nothing to lose - it's cup football, they've nothing to lose. Like I say, we worked very, very hard for a good 75 minutes and we tired a little bit at the end. But I've got to give them credit, like I said.
