There remain David Moyes fans who refuse to face the reality of the club’s position and his part in it!
Lessons he should have learned – notably against Brighton on the south coast at the end of last seasons – have been completely forgotten if indeed they were learned in the first place.
A team which he had been playing virtually all season long was beaten and as a result we failed to make it back into the Europa Cup.
He savaged the team afterwards and made it clear new players would be bought to strengthen a worn out squad.
Yet here we are nearly a season on and the same players as we saw at Brighton are being used match in and match out.
They are tired, have played too much football and it has taken Declan Rice to say so as he did after yesterday’s shabby Hammers performance against Palace.
He’s right. Of course he’s right. And let’s put this simply!
Despite spending £200 million in the transfer market the manager has bought several players who aren’t good enough to hold down a regular starting places.
As a result there can be no guarantees that a revitalised Hammers team can end the season on a high and if that turns out to be the case it would be as unforgiveable as it gets in management terms.
Declan is not wrong and those who feel the same as him will be reassured they have it right!
