Fans vote on new Moyes contract


A huge majority of West Ham fans believe David Moyes needs to be offered a new deal at the club as he progresses through the final year of his contract this term.

Claret and Hugh contributor – under his Twitter profile Sean Whetstone @westhamfootball – has organised the poll which thus far has polled over 2000 votes.

It has been run on the anniversary of the manager’s  return to the club and asks supporters if they want to see his contract increased.

The Hammers board always make their decisions on this issue at the end of the final year which will be next summer although should they decide to do so talks are set to start around Christmas.

The poll will close at around midnight on Tuesday and thus far 71.1% say West Ham should extend the contract  with 28.9% saying no.

Based on our start this season and winning the Conference no surprise here and we will need to wait a few more months to see if the result remains the same.

    The end of last season and the start of this season have been very welcome but has everyone forgotten the dire 18 months before. Hopefully the board won’t make any hasty decisions and wait and see how things are going at, say, Xmas to see whether this improvement has been sustained. If we’re still doing well then why not!! I really don’t see clubs queuing up for him though so there is no mad panic.

    Whilst enjoying our European achievements I would not rush to renew his contract. He is understandably set in his ways at his age, he is comfortable with stoic defenders, a tall midfielder (Fellani, Soucek) and set pieces. I feel he does not get skilled or intricate attacking play and it’s a tactical void other than long ball or free kicks. His use of subs is Sunday League at best. So I would love to see a progressive younger manager with Tim recruiting to take us forward.

    For me its time he goes for all reasons we have stated. But it depends on how he integrates the new players and how he aligns with the new DOF. If he does not change his approach then its a very simple decision for the club. We can no longer play both Alvarez and Soucek in the same team if we want to progress. We played luton a few weeks ago and won. Yet the first comment he made was we missed Soucek aerial pressence. We did not concede from a set play in that game and one of our cbs scored at the opposite end. Soucek makes our 2 cbs nervous everything he plays. If he does not see these things he has to go.

    For me, it depends on what plans Sullivan has for selling the club. If there are none, then Moyes has to stay. If there are plans, then the new owners will have their own ideas, so most likely, Moyes will move on.
