Moyes opens up on his Irons departure

David Moyes has spoken about his hopes and expectations at the end of last season after Hammers from relegation.

And in fairness to them this is a particularly decent exclusive obtained by The Sun! 🙂

Moyes admits during the course of the news feature: “I have to say we couldn’t have done a better job. That’s why I was disappointed not to be offered the opportunity to stay.

I’d taken it to the end of the season to see how I did and how the owners felt.

“From where they were to get them living and breathing again, was probably as successful a season as I could have had.”

“By the end I’d decided I wanted to stay if the owners provided me with the funds to strengthen the squad.

“It disappointed me I didn’t at least get a chance to talk about it.”

Moyes added: “If we’d have had the chance to spend I think we’d have got a successful team.

“The biggest strengthening had to be at the back. They needed reinforcements but every manager has their own thoughts.”

  1. I think that it might have worked out well – however the chance is gone and we have to now see how we can recover from our poor start COYI

  2. Got to feel for Moyes.The owners haven’t won any plaudits for their handling of the former manger.I just wonder are they in the right business?Some dopey signings over the summer and the jury is still out on Pelle.

  3. DM is not the only one carrying those thoughts . If we get beaten again today with a poor performance then it makes the DM sacking even more rediculous . Hopefully MP and the team can get it right . We’ll see .

  4. I fear our useless owners are going to regret the day they let Moyes go; the last three games under him ended with a win at Leicester, a draw at home to Man U, and then an un-customary thrashing of Everton on the last day of the season, with a team at long-last playing as one. Now fast-forward to the present mess, with a team that has no backbone, no heart, and no hope, with a has-been manager; I cannot personally see any light at the end of this long and dank tunnel, and wonder what the next ‘Vanity’ project the Chuckle Brothers will inflict on us next???

  5. Moyes was hard done by, I certainly think he could have bridged a gap to the top level whether or not he could have got us into top 6 I am not sure. I still have every faith in Pelle but I want to see a lot more aggression from the team when they lose the ball.
