  1. I think they should give him a contract extension as a result of keeping us up, lets be honest Moyes is the right man for our level of expectation to build the club, he should be backed ion the market with at least 2 or 3 players of his choice, every other West Ham manager has been except him. Slav wasted a fortune, many of MP’s signings checked out when he did. Moyes style is opposite that of MP’s, there is nothing to suggest Moyes can’t keep us indefinitely in the PL so start freeing up the funds and give him a 2 year extension to build. Get Ralf Rangnick in to consult on the red bull model am sure DM can glean some useful experience from that and learn by what worked and what didn’t.

    • I honestly thought he had been given a contract extension by virtue of keeping us in the Top Flight . At least by the News of various outlets and comments .
