West Ham‘s recent drubbing by Crystal Palace was a painful reminder that David Moyes’ brand of football has reached its expiration date. While Moyes deserves credit for past achievements, clinging to his pragmatic approach is like trying to spice up a relationship with the same old routine – it just doesn’t work anymore.

Fans are no longer content with simply avoiding defeat. They crave a brand of football that reflects the attacking prowess of players like Paquetá, Bowen, and Kudus. Sitting through games where these talents are muted by Moyes’ cautious tactics is an insult to their creativity and the fans’ desire for entertainment.

The club’s hierarchy seems to understand this. Their pursuit of a manager like Ruben Amorim, a young, attacking mastermind, sends a clear message. West Ham wants a manager who inspires, not one who simply prioritises damage limitation. Moyes’ constant reminders of his past successes ring hollow in the face of uninspiring performances against top teams.

The time for change is now. West Ham has the tools to be exciting, a squad brimming with attacking potential. They need a manager who will unleash it, not stifle it. Moyes’ departure, while perhaps inevitable, presents an opportunity to embrace a new era at West Ham, one defined by attacking flair and a brand of football that excites the fans and reflects the club’s ambition. The “missionary position” of Moyes‘ pragmatism has left the fans cold. It’s time for West Ham to explore new positions and rediscover the joy of attacking football.
