Moyes appointed as Spurs struggle – perfect Saturday

They say if it’s worth having it’s worth waiting for but we could have done without the tension of a Goodison Park backdrop to the David Moyes appointment.

We were delighted to learn and publish over a week ago that a three year deal had been agreed and only the paperwork was left to sort out.

We were also told that given that Moysie is a totally honorable man there were no fears that he would break his current contract or renege on the new one even in the light of the Everton job being discussed as a possibility.

The official announcement came today – 24 hours later than some media had suggested but never mind it’s job done.

It’s fitting the board should break the habit of their time in the business of ownership of the club by offering a three year deal rather than two. It may even be seen as the proper thing to do by way of compensation for  replacing him with Pellegrini.

It’s fun to see Tottenham struggling to find a manager stupid enough to join them at a time when we have the clear manager of the year in charge – whether offered recognition or not.

And it’s good to know – as I’d heard from various national newspaper journo mates who know him – that DM really is a man of honour.

Now he can get down to work and let’s hope we have no second season problem as has been known in the past at a number of clubs.

  1. I love the fact West Ham love moyes that West Ham have finally starting doing something. Even with spurs doing awful, West Ham are STILL in their shadow.

    2nd season collapse is a sure thing for the ham!


    • What are you doing here?
      Seriously I don’t know of any Spurs blogs, I’m sure they exist, but it’d never cross my mind to search for one. Nor would I ever do so.

      • I think second season syndrome is more related to championship clubs coming up to premier league. It’s quite possible next season we will find it harder and not do as well because teams like spuds will be doing everything to remain one of the greedy six. If that’s the case though and we do as poorly as Spurs did last year, I hope the fans will still stick by Moyes because long term I think he’ll get us in the champions league.

  2. Oh leave him alone hugh. Hes got enough problems supporting Totterham.

  3. Terrific news. Never really in doubt, but good to have it done. Now for Kevin, Stuart, Paul and Xavi? Let’s get this team on the road!

  4. I never doubted for a moment that Moyes would sign a contract to remain with us, which I also felt from the off would be a three-year contract…… If as Chairmen you have finally found your man, why would you only give him a two-year contract?
    Moyes has that Old Fashioned term “Integrity” (sadly lacking these days) running through his veins and it’s a great comfort to know that there are now no distractions on that front and he can finally get on with getting the right personnel in and signed up.
    I am LUVIN’ IT….that the spursy spuds are STILL following that pre-covid “Levy” model… Chequebook managers at the club for two seasons max. Kane’s Off….. Luvin’ It.
    Mind you we will probably have a few more of those idiots on here in the near future
    The Future’s Bright, the Future’s Claret and Blue….COYI
