‘It’s nowhere near good enough, we can’t play like this – we have to be CRAZY!’ Fuming boss Slaven Bilic admits his winless West Brom side were simply out-fought after crashing 2-0 at Fulham
- Slaven Bilic’s side still without a win after their opening seven league games
- The West Brom boss accused his side of disappearing after the first 25 minutes
- The Baggies are 18th and host high flying Tottenham in their next league fixture
The defeat left the Baggies still chasing their first Premier League win of the season and left them rooted in the relegation zone.
Bilic’s side have only taken three points from their opening seven games and the Baggies boss hit out at his side after their latest defeat.
West Bromwich Albion manager Slaven Bilic was far from happy with his side’s display
It was another missed opportunity for the Baggies who remain rooted in the bottom three
‘We can’t play like this, we can’t play like this. We have to get into the red zone. We have to be crazy. He told the BBC.
‘We played for 25 mins then we disappeared. It was nowhere near good enough. Everything starts with the work rate. They were stronger, quicker, better in passing, better in one-on-ones, more direct and taking more responsibility.
‘They had much more quality. It hurts because everything looked good in the last couple of games. We have to wake up. We can and we have to be much better than this. Everything starts with work rate, commitment and dedication.’
The much needed win for Fulham was their first of the season and lifted them up to 17th
‘We need to be much better in everything. It all starts with the work-rate, it was nowhere near good enough. We didn’t hurt them enough, it was very slow, waiting for something to happen, that’s why we couldn’t do anything.
‘It’s worrying – not the points or position, but the performance. Everything starts with the work rate, commitment, dedication and we simply didn’t match them and have to work much, much harder.
‘We don’t have the most quality. If we work harder, we will have a chance in many games.’
Next up for the Baggies will be a home game against Tottenham on Sunday.
