Fan view on Potter for Moyes

West Ham are apparently looking hard at former Brighton and Chelsea manager Graham Potter as a possible replacement for David Moyes at the end of the season with opinions on the Claret and Hugh forums decisively split on such a move. Here C and H Facebook follower Simon Barham gives his view.

Fan view on Potter for Moyes

Many are putting Graham Potter’s name forward.

Yes, of course it is allĀ  about opinions, but let’s take a look at the Premier League statsĀ  for Moyes at Hammers and Potter at Brighton and Chelsea:

Fan view on Potter for Moyes

Goals scored per game – Moyes 1.43 Potter 1.09; Points per game- Moyes 1.35 Potter 1.23 – Overall Goals per game – Moyes 2.90 Potter 2.29.

I am deffo not Moyes In, I just see Potter as jumping out of the frying pan into the fire on those figures .

Potter is known to play a possession game, but his teams were pretty much slowest in PL for getting the ball forward and scored just over one goal a game, which is way less than Moyes .

As I said, I’m deffo Moyes Out, but I can’t see the attraction of a manager whose teams barely score a goal a game.

CandH says: That all seems very reasonable to us. The time has come for an expansive gamed under a manager who really values offensive football.
