Moyes: No more free hits after this season

David Moyes expects the pressure to be just as intense – if not more so – next season than the current campaign.

But he’s much happier living with that situation than he was last season when he admits he was watching the league table almost every singe breathing minute as the club bid to beat relegation.

That the Hammers are now growing as a club is  something he is used to from previous experience and told reporters:  I know form my experience at Manchester United and even at Everton in the early years, the pressure’s on because then the demands come to challenge the top teams.

And this is why I think this year it feels like we have got a bit of a free hit, but it won’t be a free hit going forward because it will be trying to do this on more regularly.

The pressure next year will be more to say ‘Can you do this again, David? Can you keep West Ham up in the top six or seven again’. So that will be the first target. And that’s where more pressure will come in the future.”

“This time last year I was going back to the flat and looking at the league table working out who was playing who, would our goal difference be enough to keep us up if we needed it.

  1. Having had the pleasure of doing some speed and fitness consultancy for David Moyes at Everton in 2010/2011 season I must say he is one of the best people I have met in sport across the board, he is prepared to listen to alternative methods of training to keep his diverse squad fully fit and functional for longer periods during a gruelling season, he really is a top guy and cares with a passion about the club he manages, west ham united are a great club who will become a top six consistently, but be warned the fiery Scot does not suffer fools gladly, next season west ham will see how well he does when it comes to bringing in hidden gems just like this season with Dawson Bowen and Souzek good luck David you deserve success for all your efforts turning Everton into the club they are today, it was always a pleasure speaking to you and assisting your medical staff COYH

  2. We all know,deep down.
    That to stay bear the top,one must actually beat some of the top teams,some of the time

    Today,against Chelsea at home will be a pivotal moment.

    You are either good enough or also ran.

    Nuff said

  3. One year contract his earning that no more though. Reason is he never learns his a defensive coach shows once again why we were the only club to give him a job. Plays noble love the geezer but not good enough against a Chelsea side where we need to attack. Plays Frederick’s fcs and leaves barahma lanzini on the bench when lingard is crying out for someone technically capable to play with . Var once again must go after watching another handball and no penalty . Wonder if we were the ones there with that handball blatant would have got away with it? If your using var at least get it right and be consistent otherwise get rid of this asp.
