Moyes knows how many players he wants to bring in

Manager David Moyes knows how many players he needs to add to the squad but is telling nobody!

In typical Moysie style he  keeps such matters to himself but how much that helps the position is unclear to the likes of us.

As explained he has so far allowed seven to go out whilst bringing in five which on the face of it – as we wrote earlier – looks a tad bizarre given how thin the squad has become.

But asked what numbers he had in mind before the window closes on September 1 he refused to answer simply telling reporters: “I know what I need but I’m not going to give a number out.”

However, it seems that none of the players remaining are up for sdale with the manager adding: “I don’t think we are necessarily a selling club at West Ham unless we need to and at the moment we don’t.

If we choose to that’s up to us  but at the moment we are not in that position. We’ll try and continue to strengthen and get better than what we’ve got.”

One comment on “Moyes knows how many players he wants to bring in

  1. For most of my West Ham supporting life, I had become accustomed to this club conducting their transfer business out in the open in the full glare of the public. So when Moyes tightened up how we conducted our transfer business out in the open, I welcomed this, as I thought this must be the reason behind our high reported failure rate of transfer completion.

    The internal leaks now seem to have dried up, but the rumours have reached epic proportions. Moyes may be “Swan Like” with a calm exterior, but for most of us, we’re all sweating whilst the countdown clock is ticking. The general picture that I seem to be getting, is of a scattergun, low-balling, drawn-out transfer policy. I can’t see how this would give confidence to any of the players that we may currently be in negotiations with.

    I do hope that I am proved wrong and that we manage to get the players and the numbers that we need before the window closes in a little over two weeks.
