Moyes: “Fabulous to be back. It feels great to be home”

David Moyes has always been a manager who splits opinions but in his first interview since returning as Hammers boss for the second time he could hardly be more enthusiastic about the job facing him.

West Ham have actually been in touch with him since the bad run under Manuel Pelegrini began and once the sacking deed had been done on Saturday evening Moyes was the only show in town.

Lump it or like it, Moyes is now in charge and whilst many are unhappy there’s a large group who reckon what he did before he can achieve again – save the club from relegation.

Speaking on the official site his own passion at returning to the London Stadium could hardly be much clearer and the full interview he covers a range of issues.

He will be on the training ground almost immediately and his entire interview can be read at   https://www.whufc.com/news/articles/2019/december/30-december/exclusive-interview-david-moyes.

But here are a few extracts which demonstrate the mood of the man as he prepares for the clash against Bournemouth on Wednesday.

He says: “It’s fabulous to be back. It feels great to be home. I’ve missed being here because I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed being around the stadium and I loved being in this part of the world and I missed the Club, so I can’t wait to get started.

I’m feeling very proud that I’m back here at West Ham. But I think more importantly I’ll be looking to see what I can do and what I can make improvements to, how we can get some wins with the players and how we can get some quick wins on the field as well.”

“The job first and foremost is to make sure we get away from this position. But I do believe that the squad of players I’ve got here is a better squad of players than when I took over before, so I am looking forward to working with them and I am looking forward to meeting them as I’ve not met them yet.

I want to hear what they’ve got to say and I want to see what fits best for the club, but ultimately I want to play good football, I want to play exciting football and I want to give everybody something to cheer about and shout about.”

“It is good. Being around the stadium and the training ground, obviously I know my way around so I’m looking forward to getting started. There are quite a lot of new players, so it will take a bit of time for me to get to know them and them them to get to know me as well, but what we need to do is be together, a club together, supporters and players, and really be something special. I’m burning and driven to start again

  1. For this club at present, he is the right man at the right time, just give him time to sort out the dire mess the last manager has left the place in, and I for one am sure we’ll come good. COYI’s

  2. Has anything been said about a transfer budget. I know earlier in the month it was said on here that there would not be much available, but is there anything more specific on that coming out of the club?

  3. Just cannot believe some of our so called fans. Some hope we get relegated to prove themselves right. Are they for real or opposing supporters masquerading as ours? We don’t need them whatever their reasons. I’ve never heard any true supporter wishing damage to his own team for any reason.
    Everyone is entitled to an opinion as to who the manager should be but at least try to be sensible as to who is available and who is realistically likely to be interested. We must understand that, at the moment, we are not exactly attractive and are simply an average club with no great amounts of money to buy our way to the top.
    Nobody is nominating a realistic alternative to Moyes, some are even calling for BFS. You couldn’t make it up.

  4. You are not wrong Mooro. A guy did a piece on here a few weeks ago suggesting the West Ham fans were a big part of the problem. Some of the stuff on here in the last couple of days suggests he had a point.

  5. while i am one fo the people unhappy at moyes coming in with his 29% win ratio from last time, that is currently better than what pellgrini is sitting at for this season. But its the fact that moyes knows when to respect a point away from home that has brought him back. If you include draws from moyes’ last stint in charge he has a no loss percentage of 67%
    And if pelligrini has taken the matra of dont get beat and respect the point away from home we wouldnt be in this situation in the first place. Well that and not playing that donkey roberto

  6. I Agree with Mooro the way things stand with the club having to buy Pelle & his entourage off meant the club could not afford to pay big bucks to another top manager or to compensate another team to lure away their manager, Moyes Did what was asked last time & avoided relegation in fact we are lucky he wants to take it on again after he was left hanging & not given a chance to push on with a decent transfer budget

  7. Real supporters know what West Ham are all about? It’s in our anthem bubbles? ” they fly so high in the sky then like my dreams they fade and die”, this song in years past and present represents our mantra ? We have our dreams and every so often things don’t go well ,so we have to dust our selves down and start all over again. So Let’s start again give Moyes’s a chance and pull together? If you are a glory hunter West Ham ain’t your cuppa tea folks? The last time we won a major cup was in 1980, came close in 2006 but I had a good weekend in Cardiff just wrong result, so now we move on and surport whatever the future holds and get behind the team and new coaches, Que sera sera ( what will be will be) keep the faith C.O.Y.I
