Moyes: Four wins more important than transfers

David Moyes says he is concentrating on winning West Ham’s next four games rather than obsessing about possible inbound transfers in the winter window.

Asked about his transfer plans by reporters at lunchtime the manager dodged the question saying he was not worrying about other players at other clubs saying his four games in January were his priority and nothing else.

He admitted he would have a look if something else comes along that can help win more games but his current players were much more important right now and building them to become better players.

Speculation is rife with West Ham linked to every man and his dog but if his comments are anything to go by he isn’t spending that much time on his hunt for a replacement striker for Seb Haller

David Moyes told reporters on his virtual press conference from Rush Green training ground at 1.30pm this afternoon

“I’m looking at four wins in the next four games. That’s what I’m looking at, nothing to do with any other players at other clubs, nothing to do with anything else.

Winning the next four games in January if I can and making sure I do as well as I can, nothing else is that important.

If something else comes along that can help us win games then we’ll look at it but the people who are important are the players who are in this building at the moment. “

  1. Great comments, let’s hope the lads give everything to do just that win the next 4 , that would be awesomw. Burnley will be tough but if we stick together , show the fight and team spirit we have there no reason to not win . I am loving watching g them this year . COYI ⚒

  2. I liked his reply. The more I think about this window and the transfer speculation the more I am beginning to come around to the thinking that the player we should sign is Sarr from Watford. He is a great talent who can play wide right and he can also play down the middle. I am just thinking that if we signed him, we would have a midfield 4 of Bowen, Rice, Soucek and Sarr with Benrahma in behind Antonio. The emergence of the young striker Mipo.has completely change my thinking. I would also then even go so far that we could turn Fornals into a number 8 who can cover for both Rice and Soucek.

  3. Not question-avoiding answers but the truth. Well said David. We are all very happy that you view your job in this way. Making the most of what we have today and how we can make it better for tomorrow is the most worthwhile use of resource. Dreaming about new players and where we are to finish in the league, who will score our winning goal in the cup final and whether a knighthood is about to be bestowed is a waste of time and sharing any of these thoughts with interested interrogators is not part of the job. Well done David. Looking forward to Burnley now. We’ll start looking forward to WBA after that one.

  4. I think that this fits in with the philosophy of “promise less and deliver more” – dont talk of a potential signing until its in the bag – makes a good change from teh days of publicly chasing Lacazette, Maxi Gomez etc – good players but dont talk about them until they sign
