Irons gratitude and worries walk hand in hand

By Hughie Southon

The West Ham board must be finding itself in much the same position as us fans – incredibly grateful to David Moyes for a couple of fabulous years but naturally concerned about what comes next.

Despite our personal feelings it’s a whole lot different when you are in charge of a situation rather than simply looking on.

And all the information we have is that whilst the manager has to be on thinner and thinner ice as the results slide, the board are desperate to see things turned around.

They are also unhappy at fans – and we include ourselves among them – who have turned against the manager given the current situation.

It really isn’t easy for any of us right now but we want to make it very clear indeed that we would love to be wrong about the position we have taken.

And should things swing upwards over the next few games nobody will be more delighted than Claret and Hugh.

  1. I don’t feel bad about the position i have taken on Moyes which is that i want him out.
    Hugh do you think getting a couple of good results is going to swing us fans that everything is going to be hunky dory?No it won’t because it will be just be temporarily papering over the cracks.
    Do i give a monkeys about the board being unhappy with us fans……NOPE!

  2. It’s about realism surely? When Moyes did well we all lauded him . That was when he brought in Jesse and we had a potent attacking style. Now we have a leaking defensive style of slow transition, and even with two DCM we concede consistently. We accepted the success, we must embrace our current failure and do something about it. It won’t just come right. The manager must act or walk

  3. The Board will stick as there are no realistic options and they owe Moyes loyalty for keeping us in in Premier twice plus great seasons and Europe.
    As for the rump of fans who have always hated GSB I suspect GSB don’t give a monkeys !!
