Moyes has no regrets

David Moyes says he has no regrets of his decision not to sign another signing during the January transfer window after the news of Michail Antonio’s hamstring injury.

The manager was asked the question by a reporter at the virtual pre-match press conference at 1.30pm on Friday ahead of Sunday’s game against Leicester City.

The manager was short in his simple response by responding “No, I chose to bring in Jesse Lingard instead.”

Moyes had tried to sign a couple of strikers in the winter with his bid for Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri knocked back. He turned down an offer of Josh King who is struggling at Everton while on loan.  Instead he turned his attention to Jess Lingard agreeing a loan fee of £1.5m with another £2.5m in wages and a £500,000 European bonus to land the Manchester United player.

It is hard to argue against his decision with Lingard’s six goals and three assists for the Hammers so far.

  1. King not Wilson

  2. was there not the chance of another loan in jan? bringing craig dawsons perm signing forward?

    This total lack of cover in some key areas does feel like its coming back to bite us arse now. This one was predictable though.

    I hope Bowen can step up to become a striker FAST, Siad actually starts to score. Noble can hold it together, (or get Fornals in there).

    • Course it was a mistake, but he will never admit it ….he took a gamble on Antonio staying fit all season wich was about 1000/1 and he hasn’t..so the gamble hasn’t worked regardless of how we are doing ..not having him thd last part of the season could cost us especially now dec is out as well……God forbid, but if we don’t get many more points and drop down the table then it certainly hasn’t…and then see whats said….let’s hope we can still get results without the spine of our team

  3. Haller was as useful as a chocolate teapot and there was no other striker available on sensible money. Consequently Moyes was right and our current position confirms it.
