Irons shrug off Moyes/Newcastle link

Moyes bubblesWest Ham are all but writing off stories that David Moyes has accepted the manager’s job at Newcastle!

Stories emerged on Twitter earlier this afternoon that the Scot was on his way to Tyneside after a tweet allegedly from an ESPN reporter said his appointment would be announced within 24 hours.

It promised that more would appear on line but not a word has been added to the original tweet on the ESPN site or anywhere else.

In fact the only story on the site concerning Newcastle has been up now for several hours and says that caretaker John Carver will remain in charge until the and of the season.

Reaction to the original tweet inside Upton Park was of such amazement that we concluded immediately that talks with Moyes must be progressing.

A top level source told us: “You never know but in all honesty we’d be absolutely amazed were that to be the case. I think it’s safe to say that David would prefer us over Newcastle.”

  1. My money’s on Moyes to be our next Manager – with a secondary bet for BFS to take over at Fulham.

  2. BFS will go to OPR or Leeds
    Moyes is looking more like it every day if we are in talks already in the transfer market Moyes probably knows about them.

  3. It has just occurred to, that whilst I agree about replacing Sam, we have all forgotten in the swirl of dissatisfaction that it was in the early stages of the second half of the season, we had to play without some key players because of international absences and although Sakho was sidelined by injury, he would have still been missing had he been fit.

  4. I hadnt forgotten but we had Kouyate at the African Cup of Nations for 3 matches & that was it wasnt it?.Asian Cup was on as well but we had nobody there either did we 😉

  5. Ty we need your mediation work as our Scottish Ambassador… we trust in you… lol 😉

  6. Lol,i dont think i would be alot of good Matte,i have only been up there about 4 times in the last 20yrs.I am only scottish through parentage,im not worthy of being our scottish media man 😀

  7. That’s good enough for me Tyson its probably harder than Spanish to understand,
    Moyes actually is not that hard to follow when he speaks,
