Moyes daring to dream!

David Moyes says the Hammers can finally start looking up the Premier League table instead of over their shoulders!

The Irons picked up another three points  grinding out an important 1-0 win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

Seb Haller’s screamer proved decisive, as he thumped the ball into the top corner from the edge of the box to justify his selection up front.

The win moved the Hammers into eighth at full time and ensured that they took six points from their last two games, and picked up another clean sheet, having also beaten Fulham 1-0 prior to the international break.

Now Moyes believes that the club can start looking towards the top of the table.

Speaking after the game, as quoted by BBC Sport, he said: “I am thrilled to pick up three points. They have a lot of good players, a good manager – I know what it is like, when you get into a losing run.

“Our boys at the moment are playing with a lot of confidence and thankfully we got another win today.

“I hope we can play even better. Eighth is great at the moment, I hope we can look towards the top and not the bottom as we have done too often.

“We are not going to get too carried away, but in the dressing room there is a great spirit – we have changed a lot of things behind the scenes and the players are buying into it.

“We have to make sure the players enjoy their work and work that will help us in the games.”

Having played nine games, Moyes’ men have taken 14 points; they are six points off Premier League leaders Spurs – before Leicester’s game against Liverpool – and 11 clear of the drop zone.

  1. For me today…it just about worked. Rice was brilliant breaking up play and just being in the right place at the right time. I know we all know it but this kid is what every team needs to succeed. He genuinely is the best defensive midfielder i have ever seen at west ham and probably for England. He really is a special talent. Getting back to the game…the one touch passing of fornals and Arthur was a joy to watch. Haller scoring…we all know he has it in him and to see his interview after made me realise he is just a lad trying to do his best, not a figure to be judgemental over because he’s not got the attributes of Antonio. If he gets the ball to feet, he does what he’s in the team to do. My only gripe was…just before the first half finished , bowen had a chance to square it to Haller in the box. The ball that came from (fornals i think) was long and diagonal. That ball was quick, and decisive and it cut them open. Their defense are slower on the turn than bowen and I think we should have exploited that a little more as they also played three at the back. That was the only ball like that we played that I can remember. Anyway, good result and moyes is obviously the man we need. All hail the…..

  2. Watched Arsenal / Leeds, Gooners ate very average, imho Man Utd are too, it’s going to be an interesting season possibly another shock one, dare I say it maybe the Spuds might push really hard, although with Moanrinho in charge a dressing room upset could derail them. Just seems like anyone in the top 12 could win on any given day doesn’t it ? If we keep applying themselves as they have good times ahead COYI!!!

  3. Think we are looking really good for the first time in a long time…goal or not we need another forward imo , I’m still not convinced with haller ,to me even his shot was born out of frustration ,,even though it was a good goal. he may not have to smile but I think he needs to show more…IMO
