It was a tough deadline day for West Ham fans yesterday – which included their U23s conceding SEVEN goals.

As Hammers fans were left floored by a dismal deadline day, the U23 team were losing 7-2 to Tottenham.

West Ham coach Terry Westley was quick to challenge his side to bounce back from the disappointment and use the game as a big learning curve.

“You always learn something. You learn about characters, who’s really up for the game,” he told

“We’ll dust ourselves down and get on with it, nothing changes. If you’re trying to strive to top performance, it’s about repetitively doing the same thing, not feeling sorry for yourself.

“Tonight, we weren’t good enough, we rolled over too easy, we were in the match at 2-1, we’ve missed two penalties – it’s a game like something you’ve not see before – but we capitulated too easily in that second half and that was the disappointing thing. Now they’ve got to show us that, individually, they can get back in the team.”
