Hammers still on Moyes’ trail

MoyesmeetingWest Ham are refusing to give up on attracting David Moyes to the club as Sam Allardyce’s successor!

The former Everton and Manchester United boss yesterday revealed that he was very happy in Spain with Real Sociedad and appeared to rule out a switch back to the Premier League.

Asked if he would be returning he said: ‘I think someday I will. ‘I’ve left when I didn’t expect to be leaving but what I’ve taken on is a great job. I love working in Spain.’

However, Hammers insiders are convinced he is simply saying what he has to say and can’t be expected to  reveal any intentions he may have elsewhere.

The Hammers have made the 51 year old Scot their No 1 choice as he fits the “Premier League experience and English speaking” criteria perfectly.

Irons co chairman David Sullivan is a fierce negotiator when he sets his mind to an objective and won’t be easily dissuaded by a Moyes radio interview.

ClaretandHugh was told: “They wanted him when he became available from Manchester United and nothing  has changed.

“They will almost certainly have had long chats with his s former head scout at Goodison and Hammers recruitment director to the board Tony Henry about how and what he will respond to.

“And if David Sullivan has the bit between his teeth on this one he could be a very hard man to resist.”

  1. Something has changed in that moyes has since been a complete failure at manchester united and forced to ply his trade abroad.

  2. done well at everton with no money

  3. He wouldnt be my first choice but is an improvement on BFS. I can see him building a strong solid side and he seams to be the man for a bit of a project that could last 10 years or so but I am worried about his style of football.

  4. Not comfortable with Moyes tbh – not sure why, just doesn’t feel right to me.
