Hammers may have kicked Moyes talks down the road

Our contacts who supplied us with information that the first round of talks would be held this month are now very reluctant to given us a date or explain whether they have actually started.

That’s unusual and doesn’t really add up given their willingness to explain that January was the month in which they would be talking to him.

At the time we were given the news the team had had been having great results at Spurs and Arsenal along with another over Manchester United.

And that naturally indicated that Moyes on the cusp of getting a new deal with the club having brought forward the date of talks from the end of the season.

Since then of course we have managed just a dreary league draw against Brighton, another against Bristol City and last night’s defeat, thus finding ourselves out of both domestic cup competitions.

Not only they have been beaten but the performance levels have been appalling and significantly in a conversation this afternoon an important source at the club told us exclusively: “It was shocking and showed up the squad – it wasn’t only the fringe players who were poor but the usual first teamers as well.”

With injuries and Kudus and Aguerd away for another month it seems to us the club is taking it’s time big time on the manager’s future.
