Hasty Hammers must wait on Moyes contract


Hasty Hammers must wait on Moyes deal 

I fail to comprehend the rush to offer David Moyes a new contract, especially considering that it contradicts West Ham’s customary approach of initiating negotiations towards the end of the season. Moreover, engaging in talks at a time when The Hammers seem to be experiencing a downturn is unnecessary.

Whilst I remain optimistic about the club securing a top 10 finish, particularly if Lucas Paqueta can participate for the remainder of the season, granting Moyes a long-term contract amidst a period of poor form could reflect poorly on the board’s judgment.

The current situation at West Ham is far from ideal, indicating a need for introspection rather than impulsive decision-making. Taking a step back to evaluate the team’s performance over the next six weeks would enable the club to make a more informed decision.

The transfer window saw significant shortcomings, with firm bids for Emile Smith Rowe, Ibrahim Osman, and Jota yielding no results. The inability to secure players, including an Arsenal reserve, a relatively unknown talent from Denmark, and a player not registered with his club, is alarming.

Whilst I don’t solely attribute these failures to Moyes, they may hint at underlying issues within the club’s structure. Concerns also arise from Moyes’ lopsided squad and his track record of taking months or even years to identify and acquire a striker.

Whilst there is a possibility of overcoming these challenges, with a run of victories starting with Arsenal and the return of Lucas Paqueta, I believe it’s premature to discuss a new contract until then. Let’s exercise patience and refrain from creating urgency where none exists.
