Moyes knows vital importance of Brentford game


David Moyes have had a very good week and things could improve even further on Sunday afternoon.

Most would agree that the second leg of the Euro Conference semi final is the bigger of the two games but the Premier League is the bigger of the two competitions.

And a win at Brentford would be the one we need to ensure that we remain in it next season and the manager himself is very aware of it.

We have been been beaten 0-2 by them in the League but managed a 1-0 win at their place in the FA Cup and will be looking for a repeat of the Bees currently sitting in ninth place on 50 points.

Yhe West Ham boss has some big decisions to make on who he rests ahead of next Thrsday’s game and we may see Benny benched for Fornals and Mikey for Danny Ings whilst Flynn Downes deserves his chance.

Moyes knows the game’s importance and said: “I don’t think it is that difficult to focus on Brentford because we all know the importance of it.

I think you can see by the way the players performed against Manchester United and how we have tried to perform in recent games.

And we have worked really hard to make sure we have got to the points required. Yes, we are still short of at least one more win, so we have to try and get that.

    Hi Hugh!
    This is my first comment on this page so I would first like to thank you for the work that you do to manage to bring West Ham News to my living room here in Norway. Please bear with me that my english is quite poor, (maybe as poor as our premier season:) Than again I have been following this page for some years now, and I am humble that I can be updated on several WH news (and different opinions) in relation to our beloved team. Since I am (sadly) a lonesome Iron here in my city, and that I cannot watch our beloved West Ham on the terrace, I would like to congrats everyone with this amazing win in the first semi final leg in Europe! COYI! -cheers from Bergen, Norge.
