"I think, if you've been to the majority of West Ham games, you can tell that we don't play like that all the time! Jose doesn't come and watch us all the time, either! We do play some really good football and we have scored the majority of our goals from open play, so I'd suggest we are not just a long-ball or defensive team.
"We have a mixture and football is all about getting results, and it doesn't matter how you get them. At times, you have to be route-one and sometimes you have to be expansive. We have a decent balance between those styles.
"There are lots of things we need to improve on this season - attacking, scoring more goals and trying to keep more clean sheets - but we have kept ten clean sheets this season and we just need to score more goals."
"Every game is different, you have to play the way you think is best for your team in each particular game. West Ham did that, they were very brave. Yes, they defended inside their own box a lot but they got a point at Chelsea, where under Mourinho they have not lost in I don't know how long. We tried a different way up there and we lost so you could say West Ham did better than us."
Thats why Carroll WILL go to the World Cup if he avoids injury. A completely different challenge for defenders.— Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) February 1, 2014
