Like most managers David Moyes often uses verbal shorthand rather than explain himself fully.
We are hoping he was doing that in his latest declaration on the summer transfer market when he claimed he was hoping to bring in a “couple” of players.
It’s a word we have all used at times when actually discussing several and we can only keep our fingers crossed that is what the manager intended.
Currently we are looking at a Hammers squad where Yarmo and Fredericks are on frees, Nobes is of course retiring and there are others the wrong side of 30.
Alex Kral is on his way back to Russia from loan and neither Arthur Masuaku or Nikola Vlasic are good enough.
We are light at left back, in midfield and up front and although Moyes rightly insists we have a very good side it certainly needs more than a “couple” in during this summer.
Fingers crossed we have read this right because otherwise we might be in trouble if the boss is serious.
Time to make Mr Moyes a Coach Letting those who know what the team needs to buy, buy the squad we need. Truth is we need five, six or even more to win things.
Cresswell talk him up in legends, is to old and passed it. Antonio is only fit for a limited amount of time a Season. Can we afford not to buy two Strikers? There is to much speaking in hush tones about Players now, fact is we used to get rid of Players who were to old and we have got to go back to it. Even Geoff Hurst and Bobby Moore. Legends are all well and good, trouble is this is now and it is reality. Not the hay day of the Player Legend, but the present and facts are facts. We need new Defenders we need depth in squad, we need two left backs. Bye, bye Legends, thanks for everything.
Like i’ve said on numerous occasions, we can ill afford to let Moyes oversee anymore transfer windows, we need to get rid of him at the end of the season, yes he’s done a good job but we can not go into a new season with a ” couple of signings ” when we stand to lose / release 6 or so players.
He is frightened to death of rocking the apple cart, but the last 2 months has clearly proved we needed a bigger squad but ” Dithering Dave ” chose to run the team into the ground, if we have any aspirations of keeping Dec, then we have to go into the summer transfer window and sign 6 – 7 players
Thanks for all the hard work in turning our club around but its time for you to go….. NOW
its insane to talk about ‘getting rid’ of moyes. wth??
but if he really only intends to bring in 2 or 3 players, we need to restructure the setup because that is a serious step backwards.
we need 2 or 3 players signed in the first 10 days of the window at least. then more later.
Moyes has done s great job in turning round the fortunes and mood of the club, but this summer is the time for him to put to bed any thoughts that he dithers or won’t play young players by some major recruitment. Stand up please DM.
What do you want him to say,here’s a list of players I want to sign,your all sitting there complaining,before the season has even finished.why not wait and see what happens,before jumping on a band wagon,and complaining about something that’s not even happened yet
I was referring to the word “couple” nothing else – nor was I complaining , Behave
