Hammers tell fans when to judge Moyes


David Moyes has hinted at his West Ham future by suggesting that he's always speaking to agents on his phone about player recruitment

Online rumours that David Moyes will not be in charge of West Ham at the start of the Premier League season next week have been vehemently denied by club insiders.

While the West Ham board are rightly frustrated that they haven’t signed any players this summer, they back their manager and have no current plans to replace him.

Supporters have been asked to judge the manager only on Premier League games and not pre-season friendlies after the 4-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen.

Contrary to widespread rumours spreading on multiple West Ham Whatsapp groups, David Moyes will be in charge of the game against Bournemouth, and no replacement has been lined up.

Moyes has eleven months remaining on his contract, and the West Ham board aren’t known to be sackers of managers.

The situation will likely be reviewed at the end of the year around Christmas time before the next transfer window opens.

    Your reporting over the Moyes situation in the past couple of weeks has quite frankly been poor and ‘click baity’. This site used to be balanced and great at reporting on potential transfers but you seem to have drifted into your own opinion and hyperbole. Please go back to giving us the facts and not speculation.

    • You obviously aren’t reading too closely. We only yesterday were the only site to have the club confirm that Alvarez was on the cards plus several other stories over the last few weeks. When u have a manager who can’t make his mind up on anything it makes things harder than it used to be

    We are judging him by PL results. Anyone doubt why he is the worse manager in the PL go and have a look at the statistics for the last season and a half from the PL. Data includes % win and % possession. They are so bad it is embarrassing to think he is still our manager, there is no way he should still be our manager. Its that simple.

    I’ve judged him on the last 18 months on league form and tactics. By having bad man management in terms of players and coaches.
    Watching the Bayer game has shown what can be achieved with a plan and levelled approach to all things Football.

    Irrespective of whether there are new signings or not, the displays against Rennes and Leverkusen by the current squad show David Moyes cannot organise and motivate them. The players need to show more when they pull on the claret & blue but it’s unfortunately time for the board to look for a new manager. I hope I’m wrong and that we beat Bournemouth 4-0 in a thrilling display but I fear that’s wishful thinking. COYI.
