Moyes fuming after late Bournemouth equaliser

West Ham manager David Moyes says he wants to sign a midfielder in the January window

I have every sympathy with West Ham United manager David Moyes over the two big controversies in Tuesday's match at Bournemouth.

Nathan Ake's goal-bound header was turned in at the back post by Callum Wilson, who appeared to use his arm.

With the scoreline at 2-1, Begovic slipped upon clearing the ball, which unfortunately ended in a Marko Arnautovic goal.

I think Madley was trying to be too clever by ignoring his assistant and he has to show trust in his colleague. Offside. Which arguably you could say it is.

"When the linesman's flag goes up you think "we've got out of jail there a bit", Moyes told reporters.

'The decision (over offside) was tight, but I thought once the flag had gone up that it wouldn't be given, especially because of the length of the conversation they had'.

"The offside could be close, the linesman gives it as an offside goal but the worst thing is the Bournemouth player puts it in with the top of his arm so it should be ruled out for that. He said the assistant referee only put his flag up to draw attention to it, and I've never heard of that ever".

During West Ham's 3-3 draw with Bournemouth, Arnautovic's first goal levelled the scoreline after the Hammers initially took the lead through James Collins.

"We're lacking quality", Moyes said after the latter game. "We showed great spirit to get back in it and then to lose a goal like that is a killer".

Eddie Howe was left to lament two points he felt Bournemouth dropped, while still accepting Wilson's late equaliser probably should not have stood.

"I have no hesitation in playing any of them, so I don't think Jermain's injury forces my hand at all".

"We're disappointed because we're in the dying minutes and we've got ourselves 3-2 up".

Asmir Begovic made two blunders to allow Marko Arnautovic to bag a brace in the final ten minutes, although a refereeing decision cost them two precious points.
