Moyes: Irons “need to be more open and transparent”

David Moyes is working hard to forge an entirely new approach to life within West Ham ensuring that everybody is working together and that the club benefits from unity of purpose.

Right now the manager’s fingerprints are everywhere – as much off the pitch it seems as the amazing things that are happening on it.

And it could be that in a couple years time he will be thought of the man who took this club to a different level in both areas.

Asked by reporters whether getting everybody pulling together was his biggest achievement he said: “If everything does not work together, it is too difficult.

I’ve got really good PR people around me here and we have tried to engage better. I want everybody at West Ham to part of it.

We need to be more open and transparent, for everybody to hear what we are saying and what we are thinking.

I am trying to tell people that I have to try to be successful in the short term if I am going to have a longer-term vision. But I am also trying to give them an idea what the vision might be and what I might be able to go.

Hopefully we are beginning to get to a point where you might be able to say, ‘what can the next few years really look like’ so we can build the club because I think there is potential.

Results change things, but I think we see a little bit of progress.”

  1. David is exactly right and I wonder if part of what he was saying was meant for the fans.
    I’ve supported David Moyes since his Preston days all the way through to today at West Ham.
    I have listened to the West Ham fans since David joined the club and I’ve got to say it’s not been very good to listen to.
    I wouldn’t like to play in front of them every week . Have they any idea how difficult it must be for the players having fans who are not fully behind the club and moan about the board, the ground, and anything else they can moan about, it’s soul destroying, and it must feed through to the players and manager and make them feel like is it really worth giving everything for these lot.
    Could it be a signal to the fans how well the team is doing without them being there ?
    Please for the sake of the club, stop moaning, be more positive about your club, forget the past and look to the future.

  2. In all my years of supporting this club, this era has a different feel about it. The turnaround of our club and players is something that I have never seen before and didn’t see coming either. There is a real feeling of belief in the direction that we are headed in and also that the impossible has now become possible. Off of the back of survival, to be looking at possibly our best league placing since 1986 seems strange and dreamlike.
    Moyes has delivered the unbelievable in the short-term and his longer-term vision is truly exciting to look forward to. Moyes is the manager that we have needed for many a year and I simply hope that our chairmen will back him to the Hilt…

  3. What a super description ‘Unity of Purpose’ is for West Ham going forward. Not just for the team and back room, but for us fans. If ever there was a time to stop the abuse, the moaning, the aggression, surely this is it. If you genuinely love this club, nasty is not the way.

  4. Let’s really get behind Moyez and the Boyz.
    He’s worked absolute miracles in such a short space of time, absolutely deserves everyone’s backing and support, and the sky is the limit.
    Fortunes always hiding.
    It might not be for much longer. COYI. ⚒️
