Moyes has set no points target

David Moyes has confirmed the Hammers are in good shape with no injury worries.
He explained there were a couple of illness issues ahead of the Southampton but was in confident mood as he faced the press in the pre-match press conference.
With Saints suffering a  number of injury problems the Irons may be the favourites but the south coast side have been picking up points of late and victory for either side would be a massive boost.
Putting a points target for survival on the record is tricky with so many clubs involved in the situation and Moyes has no intention of doing so at this stage.
All that matters is the three at stake on Sunday in a game which will be shown on Sky with the Hammers certainly showing improved home form over the last few games.
So now it’s all fingers crossed for a repeat of the fine victory over Forest with Moyes saying:
We’ve got nine games in April and a lot of them at home, so it’ll take a lot from the players, and anything the supporters will hopefully add to the players’ effort.
“I think they’re ready, we’re in a good frame of mind and will pick up the points we need to not be at the bottom end of the table.
“I know James Ward-Prowse is a good footballer, an incredibly good set-piece taker and a really good lad by all accounts, but I plan to cause Southampton problems and worry about doing that.”
“Quite often teams have broken away and we’ve not had so many teams fighting it out, but there is very little difference between a lot of teams aside from the three or four outstanding teams.
“Getting wins at the start of the season can make a difference, but we didn’t and we paid the price and we’re trying to make up for that.”

    Just seeing Moyes name and his nonsense comments is a real negative. The supporters, the supporters etc. It’s his mess, arrogant man. WE are also seeing the truth about David Sullivan. West Ham is a cash cow to him nothing else. With David Gold gone there is no empathy for the history of the club from the board. West Ham shouldn’t be rubbing their palms at the prospect of selling Declan Rice. They should have financed a team around him but it is ££££££££ to Sullivan. 55 years supporting this club. Nothing changes, sh***y owners.

    He is an utter fool and will never change. Lose on sunday and the board cannot leave him in charge.
