Moyes interview reveals his long term Irons plan

Moyes handDavid Moyes wants the Irons playing “like Tottenham, like Chelsea” should he be in charge at the London Stadium into next season and beyond.

He told BBC’s Football Focus: “I’ve got an idea in my head how I want it to look.

“I want us to go to those teams and say, ‘we’re having a game with you and we’re going to see if we can beat you.,”

“At the moment, we just don’t have the same level of quality of players as those teams do, but I’m saying that for probably every other team bar the top six or seven in the Premier League.”

Moyes admits he has little idea of how busy he will be in the transfer window saying: “We’d like to add to it if we can but I want to try to get the right type of players.

Claret & Hugh’s team of creators work with passion and pride to bring you the quality of content that keeps you coming back for more. Support for our creators, however big or small, will help us keep your sports content fresh, frequent and loyal to the club. £5 £10 £20 £50

I want to try to help West Ham prepare now and also have that vision when I lift my eyes a little bit higher up. I want to look a wee bit further forward and what we should be trying to get.

“When you start doing that, it doesn’t make it quite as easy a decision as saying ‘let’s get somebody for today’ because we also need it for tomorrow as well.”

The full interview with the Hammers boss shows on Football Focus (BBC One) from 12:00 GMT on January 13.

  1. And so say all of us !! But on a shoestring is going to be tough ! 😉

  2. ‘I’ve got an idea in my head…’ Wow! Such such a pathetic strategic statement should fill us all with dread. Has Mr Moyes had an inspiration bypass to accompany the one he had to block creative coaching ideas? Sorry, don’t wish to be offensive but this statement is so lacklustre, so lacking in strategic coherence from the very top of the Club. No wonder ‘our ‘Club is so regressive compared to those we want to be rubbing shoulders with. COYI

    • Why does it have to be Moyes fault ? Maybe he knows he isn’t being given bugger all support by the tiny Cossack

  3. So he wants to bring in the type of players to take us to the same level as Chelsea and Totscum. How is that lacking in strategic “coherence”? Should he not be showing ambition?

  4. Then we need a mega rich Russian or a multi billionaire that lives in America like Joe Lewis as the two clubs that are mentioned ? Or go one further like the Manchester city miracle ? investment from the middle east? Not I repeat Not the two barrow boy traders and a self made lady ???? Spuds tried that when there self made barrow boy Alan Sugar took on spuds and couldn’t handle it and got rid of ? Barrow boy mentality doesn’t work in running football clubs, ie lending the club money and charging interest to that club to make a profit back your either all in or just out to make a buck of which I’m sure our chairpersons are????

  5. Moyes has the Job have seen something that show us that & didn’t want to talk contract till end of season
    So Moyes will have most the negotiating power come contract talks.
    Tho it seems Moyes wanted PL but read the whole interview seems to be looking towards youth more and future.
    Seeing relegation rivals don’t want to sell is their fringe player’s even & if do at high price w no resale value.
    And top 6 like Coquelin & Theo have more options & wages etc.
    But agree with 32 not all Moyes £25m Kitty w our thing squad is nothing. Should have the £20m that was to spend on Carvalho added Now £45m done right & smart can get you 2-4 good players & we need that without selling any.
    One thin I don’t like is being linked w CBs at £25m but won’t go for Dendockner who fits what we need DM who can pass young & resale value also is experienced over 100 league caps at 22 & full blown Belgium Intl.
    And CBs like Anjkia at Basel good CB but much rather go after his creative teammate when we have Rice OX Burke & plenty of CBs until summer. So after his mate Elynoussoui 16 assists & 6 goals in 24appa w CL experience rather spend £15m on him then Anjika who wants BVB move.

    But 32 is right board should our up more money after we sold so many in summer. Likes of Huddersfield have Kongolo already & Pritchard for £14m I liked his teammate James Madisson at 21yo scores free kick goals 7 assists 7 goals be great add. But cost more now.
    We need to buy first then sell & 11 days up already.
