History shows precisely what Moysie can do for Irons

History suggests David Moyes is at the Hammers to stay and can make this team the best of the rest!

The Hammers are in the top four and are showing some genuine consistency as they try to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in their history.

And his time at Everton tells us that this form is no flash in the pan.

The Toffees and the Irons are comparable when it comes to the size of the club and the resources available.

And Moyes finished outside the top 10 only twice. Once in 2003/04 as they finished 17th, just his second full season in charge, and in 2005/06 as they ended the season in 11th.

They never finished lower than seventh in any other season under Moyes’ stewardship and gatecrashed the top four in 2004/05.

Between 2006/07 and 2012/13, the Toffees never finished lower than eighth.

Since then, they have gone through four managers, have finished outside the top 10 three times, suggesting it was Moyes who was the glue holding the club together.

He ensured that Everton were consistently the best of the rest and they routinely outperformed some bigger clubs.

At West Ham, the squad is better. Everton never had a consistent players like of Tomas Soucek, Declan, Mikey Antonio, and Coufal.

This team, Moyes insists, can only get better.

There is no reason whatsoever we can’t consistently be the best team outside the top four in the country, or maybe even… in it?!

  1. Even the last of the non-believers wouldn’t disagree with your statements of fact.
    Who’d have thought that one man could singlehandedly bring order and unity to a club which seemed to have so many issues both on and off the field, that it was close to being mission impossible when he took over?

  2. Unfortunately there is a small toxic proportion of our fan base for who being best of the rest will not be next level enough.
