West Ham have told Claret and Hugh several days ago David Moyes remained in position because there was no suitable caretaker manager available for the club.  So the reality is that given the Scot will not be receiving a new contract, David Moyes is caretaker manager!

David Moyes is caretaker manager as Tim Steidten looks for new man

It has become very clear via ourselves and talkSPORT the Hammers have decided they will need a new boss and now look ready to allow technical director Tim Steidten time to find the man they really want given the problems of appointing anyone for a few months without a long term deal being on offer.

Just as they did last season the board is trusting Moyes to sort things Рat least to some extent in the meantime Рand may feel there is no relegation gamble given the presence of such as Sheffield United, Burnley, Bournemouth  and Luton Town in the PL. However, Luton are showing signs of adapting and enjoyed a great draw with Liverpool at the weekend which could easily have been a win but for an injury time goal from the Merseysiders. Other teams, such as the weekend visitors Forest, are also looking a more solid force in the division.

Unlike Gonzo I am not as optimistic about the games facing us this week believing we may beat Olympiacos but that nothing more than a draw may be on the cards against Forest. As a result I am fearful that the Hammers can’t find a much better caretaker than the man at the helm right now!

    I’m not convinced that the club would divulge such information if it was true. A lack of caretaker would not be the reason to not sack David Moyes if Sullivan and co. decided it was time to let him go.

    West Ham will win on Thursday in the Europa League and go on to beat Forest at the weekend.

    I’ll pose a question to anyone……what do you think would happen to David Moyes if West Ham finished in the top half and won a trophy this season?
