Better times ahead as Moyes looks to ‘window’

Make no mistake the Irons transfer policy will be heading into entirely different territory when we finally get back to some sort of normality…and we will because as George Harrison sang: ‘All things Must Pass!’ 🙂

I have felt for some time that Felipe Anderson may be on his way but was told – as expected by a senior insider at the club on e-mail – a few minutes ago: “It’s silliness at this stage because it’s far too early to speculate.”

However, one thing is crystal clear from the Moyes brand of management – he wants athletes – and the two summer signings prove the point conclusively. Like Chicharito perhaps before him (and yes I know it’s not like for like) he may be a little to frail for Moyes’ taste.

I just thank God that we managed to get Bowen and Souckek before the interlude in proceedings – along with the hope that in the Czech’s case  –  we stay up and he remains as a permanent signing.

For with those two in our midfield next season I genuinely believe we are heading for much better times. It really doesn’t get much better with the likes of Declan and Pablo alongside them.

So Moyes’ regular comments that he believes there are top quality players in the Championship is more than a clue to the way we are going to proceed.

There are better times ahead and I for one am looking forward to them and watching a new Hammers policy unfold.

I am of course assuming the Irons remain in the top league!

  1. Hope all these guys have remained fit to some degree but yes rice soucek forlan bowen is a pretty solid combination in midfield.

  2. Totally agree with you, Hugh……….. Since Moyes arrival, I have listened to EVERYTHING he has said very carefully. After the desperation, despair and disillusionment that Pellegrini filled this club with we needed to go in a different direction and it was clear to us ALL the type of players that were needed and the utter rubbish leftovers that we needed to get rid of.
    There are players at this club that we need to get rid of, but Moyes cannot give too much away and will have to go about his business quietly, efficiently and effectively. COVID has also probably changed or affected how we get rid of some of our players. But for me Anderson does not suit British football and isn’t capable of applying himself as we expect players to do at this club…… and its obvious Moyes expects more from a player of his ability……. the same goes for Yarmo…… Too many fancy players who haven’t got the application…… That is the situation we find ourselves in after having a manager like Pellegrini….. a Wreckless Chequebook manager. I’m looking forward to the future under Moyes.

  3. Ollie Watkins of brentford and Eze of Qpr would be 2 really good ones also to get in.

    • Spot on…….. I have kept quiet, Especially on Eze as I 100% believe he is a player that we should get in this club ASAP…….. The same could be said of Ollie. The only trouble I fear, is a few clubs will be looking to go in the same direction as us!

  4. My guess will be that Anderson will be sold & we’re fed a line from SuGo that any proceeds are needed to keep the club alive.

  5. Sorry but yes yarmo to be sold Anderson never just needs adapting to premier a bit more and still not at his peak. Cresswell to be sold with masu too both guilty of that left weak side being our problem of letting in so many goals and never been corrected. Also sell Fred and get in two full backs that can defend and get forward too with pace and put in crosses. Diop and oggy to stay with one more midfield player as would sell lanzini and that piece of waste of space Sanchez released too. Imo
