Moyes calls for February handball rule change

David Moyes reckons the new handball rule has to be changed when the International Football Association Board (Ifab) holds its annual meeting on February 29.

The Hammers boss is still seething over the disallowed goal which cost the Irons a point at Bramall Lane on Friday night.

And he has made it clear that nobody – and presumably that involves us fans – are happy with what most believe to be the craziest law we have ever seen in the game.

We have said it many times but frankly it makes football a laughing stock and an imitation of the game with which so many grew up.

Moyes, Rice, Snodgras an the squad were utterly gutted when the 93rd strike from the Scot was ruled out and now the manager wants something done about scrapping the law as soon as possible.

He has made his position crystal clear speaking at https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/10719023/west-ham-moyes-rice-handball/ where he said: “We need to try and get them to change this ruling.

  1. He needs to move on and focus on the team. Need a keeper, box to box CM and striker of top quality in this window. Also get Diop in the back 3 with Ogbonna, with Reid or Balbuena as the middle. Drop Noble and bring Fornals into CM until we sign a player and get Yarmo into a striker role if Antonio is not fit to play alongside Haller with Anderson in behind. Simple solutions but is Moyes up to these changes, I worry he is not.

    • Everyone is entitled to Thier opinion but the truth remains something must be done about the crazy permutations of the new handball rule and how it is interpreted . Moyes is making a valid point and a call for change is perfectly acceptable . I doubt if people would be moaning about Moyes if the Goal stood .

  2. I think we should sack Moyes and give the job to Johnham 1. He has all the answers and everybody else hasn’t a clue.
