Moyes could have been replaced by a sausage roll

Celebrity West Ham fan Tom Davis told Sky Sports viewers that they could have replaced David Moyes with a sausage roll and the West Ham fans would have been happy. The actor best known for his role as DI Sleet in the BBC Three comedy Murder in Successville made the comments on Soccer AM at the weekend.

Tom said: “I feel like they have listened to me, they heard what I had to say on this show, they had a long hard look at themselves subsequently they got rid of Moyes, you could have replaced David Moyes with a sausage roll and I think we would have been happier. Pellegrini is great, this season it feels like a step in the right direction.”

  1. Don’t think a sausage roll would have had the brains to have made that masterstroke of switching Arnie from a right midfielder into a centre forward?????😊😊😊 kinda saved our premier league status in a way?

  2. I agree that the football this season has been better on the whole – however I think that Moyes deserves credit for keeping us up – I agree with the observation on Arnie – also using Masuaku as a wing back and generally managing to get some good results out of a lop-sided squad. Otherwise we could easily have gone down instead of Swansea

  3. So classy. So witty….yes Moyes achieved nothing at Everton with a massive budget(?) Just not good enough to grace our mighty club. And people wonder why we have now become a club that other fans hate, when we used to be the ‘second club’ for many supporters of other clubs.

  4. I agree Moyes was exactly what we needed at the time. He turned us around in a short space of time and stabilised the club. Would be interesting to see what he might have achieved had he had more than six months in the job and a 100 million to spend in the summer.

  5. Yes I agree. And here is a good stat. Under Moyes we played 26 PL games, getting 33 points. You can see where this is going….yes identical to Pellegrini this season. OK this guy will claim that it has been all joyful football under Pellegrini & dull as ditchwater under Moyes. I don’t see it that way myself and if we do end up with 48 points, or fewer, I will be wondering whether Pellegrini has really made any difference.

  6. Here is a scary observation – I watched part of the Wimbledon Millwall FA cup tie and the same Wimbledon team that ripped us to shreds (especially in the first half) hardly fashioned a chance – I think that they managed one shot on target all game. Attacking football is nice but we constantly run the risk of being slaughtered on the break. I am actually fearing our upcoming clash with Man City

    • Fearing the City…?
      Nahh!! We’ll be fine for the first 10 minutes, probably fashion a half chance and then get steamrolled 6-0……. in the first half !!!
