Moyes does not class Premier League survival as success

West Ham manager David Moyes has told the press that survival in the Premier League would not be regarded as a success in his eyes.

The Gaffer told reporters at Rush Green on Friday “I’ve never classed staying up at any club a success and I never will and certainly not a club the size in West Ham.”

I have a job to do, we have a job to do to stay up, unfortunately. That will be reviewed by everyone at the end in the season.”

West Ham remains in a relegation place in 18th place this evening just one point away from safety.

The Hammers have twelve games remaining and thirty-six points available in which to try to gain sixteen points to get to the magic forty figure which usually guarantees safety.

West Ham are rated at odds of 5/4 by bookies for relegation to the Championship.

Norwich City have been rated as odds favourites for relegation at  1/14 followed by Aston Villa also odds on at 8/11 and AFC Bournemouth odds on at 4/5

  1. “The Gaffer told reporters at Rush Green on Friday “I’ve never classed staying up at any club a success and I never will and certainly not a club the size in West Ham.”

    Well that finally explains his selection of Lanzini over Fornals, his substitutions during games, his team selection for the game against Citeh and holding back on starting Bowen, relegation here we come in what Moyes would seem to consider a successful season!!

    I wonder how GSB will respond to those comments from Moyes??

  2. The same thinking he had when in charge at Sunderland perhaps!

  3. Don’t care whether he calls it success, overcoming mismanagement or another day at the office-it will still be a minor miracle if he and the players (don’t forget it is not Moyes out there on the pitch!) turn it around. I can’t get too worked up about it anymore. The cracks have been there for a long time & for at least the last three seasons there has been talk about how next season will be different. It certainly will be if we go down, but if we don’t will anything change? I doubt it. Unless the owners buy themselves copies of ‘ The Idiots Guide to Football Management’ & look hard at the way they run the club then nothing will change. No change then.

  4. Is he actually saying, that although he doesn’t class staying up as success, that is precisely what he is being judged on for this season ?

    I.e. it does explain his decisions…
