Moyes doesn’t understand all the grievances of supporters

David Moyes has admitted he doesn’t understand all the grievances of West Ham supporters but called on everyone to pull together as he needed them between now and the end of the season.

Moyes told reporters “I’ve got to say, since I’ve been here, the support has been good. I think they’ve realised we need their support and their backing, and they’ve been with the team.

We want everybody together and I think that to give West Ham the best chance and for us to start competing again and be challenging some of the top teams in the future we need everybody together.

I don’t know all the grievances of the supporters, but what I do know is that I’ve really enjoyed the effort they’ve put in helping us, both away from home and at home.

“I’m going to need them between now and the end of the season – we’ve got a lot of work to do to make sure we’re a Premier League team. The more they get behind us the better.”

  1. Well that’s a statement !
    To put it in layman’s terms :- Not signing marquee players as they stated, always talking crap on social media, purchasing players that are either too old / past it, or purchasing / loaning players that are bargain basement / pound land substandard..And basically not turning our new home ground into anything like a football club albeit we rent ….it’s all the simple things that intelligent business people should know about running a football club …we are in the position we are now purely because of bad investment or zero investment…

  2. Come and meet the fans talk to them and let them explane problems to you as,club manager I would have thought that u would have tried to talk to fans and understand their feelings on club matters, i am sure the fans are behind you but I think it would be good for everyone if you spoke to the fans rarther than tell the media that u don’t understand the fans feelings towards the board and promises they have made and broken

    • If Moyes saw the way that fans behaved towards Gold in the car park at Wigan – do you really think he’d want to talk to the fans?

  3. Now , please don’t start to put Blame on Moyes … it makes no sense . Of course he doesn’t understand it all . Why should we expect him to ? . He His here to help us build a team and get ahead . The issue of Stadium and Upton Park and our history is something he knows nothing about . But , he is a football man and that alone should surfice . I’m pretty sure he wants to succeed and should be given full backing . He’s only been with us a few months and the intensity of our club will get through to him in time .

  4. Pointless statement ! The fans are always behind the club ! Its what the march is about , they’re concerned supporters and are addressing their concerns ! Don’t worry about the fans Moyes as you don’t get more loyal than the hammers supporters !!
    Just get the players needed and they’ll be loyal to you too ! Were not one with the board at present , time to deliver I’m afraid .!! 😉

  5. I’m not surprised that Moyes does not understand. Go to the real west ham fans website and watch their 1.5 hour video. You will still have no idea by the end of it.

  6. What he actually said was he didn’t “know”, rather than didn’t “understand”. The latter implies a degree of disagreement, which isn’t his point.

  7. Give it time David then you will see why the majority of fans are unhappy…. He is saying what they want him to say …!ook at Slav now with the thing’s he has been saying now he,s not manager ..lol. March march march !!!! We will always support the team David but not the clowns running the club ..!!

  8. The way I understand it (sorry to use that word) is that Moyes is saying that he admits he is not aware of all of the issues (so the fans might well have genuine grievances). I like this – in a week where it seems that now BFS is telling Everton fans that they are deluded.

    Let Moyes concentrate on keeping us up and then hopefully he can move us forward

    BTW I am not opposed to fans marching but as I am in South Africa I will not be able to join in
