Michel Vorm: “There’s only one thing to blame and that’s ourselves”

Captain for the night Michel Vorm wasn’t blaming anyone else apart from himself and his team mates after we let slip a 2-0 lead against West Ham in the League Cup last night.

We went in at half-time in full control as goals from the impressive Moussa Sissoko and the re-emerging Dele Alli put us 2-0 ahead at the break Wembley. We were in full control and it looked routine.

We started the second half in similar style until Ghanaian Andre Ayew bundled home from close range after Vorm had saved Fernandes’ shot from a corner.

That kick started West Ham, they went for the jugular and within 15 minutes they were 3-2 up as Ayew and Pedro Obiang scored from set-piece plays and we just couldn’t find a way back.

“There is only one thing to blame and that’s ourselves,” Michel told SpursTV.
“Being captain was a huge thing for me but captain or not, win or lose, you know a game like this is important in every way and if you are 2-0 up at half-time and lose 3-2 it’s disappointing.

“We were in control but after they scored the first goal you could see they had belief and we lost a bit of the momentum. We lost too many simple balls and couldn’t get back in the game. They kept believing and before you know it it was 2-2, 3-2.

Michel continued “In football, you have these kind of days and these kind of games. We just need to focus on Saturday (Manchester United away in the Premier League), and we will.
“You can’t win every game but we need to analyse this and make sure we learn from it.”
