Moyes permanent deal not a ‘given’

West Ham continue to insist that no final decision on a permanent David Moyes’ contract has been made or will be until the annual end of season review.

The club’s procedure has remained steadfast – that manager’s contracts, or their continuing employment, is only decided after that meeting – usually at the beginning of June.

At one stage there was little doubt that survival would be sufficient to see Moyes handed a minimum of one or possibly even a two year contract should that be the case.

But there have since been doubts creeping in at higher levels with his critical public comments of Declan Rice and the  latest run of heavy defeats casting a shadow over a new deal.

Social media is alive with stories that he has lost the dressing room the manager is coming under closer and closer scrutiny from above.

There have been grave misgivings over his ultra defensive approach in recent  games and another heavy defeat within the last three even though survival may be gained would in all probability end his hopes of another spell in charge.

On source told CandH: “I’ve even heard some crazy stuff about fans wanting him gone now – you can’t sack your manager three games off the end of the season in our position.”

  1. Lets hope its not given.The man has no man management skills whatsover,critisizing hisown players,sending Carroll home when we need strikers,with a slapped wrist.All this nonsense should have been kept inside the club-the rest of the footballing world is laughing their heads off at my club and I don’t like it.

  2. What’s so crazy about moyes going now I would like to know. Three games left for Pearce to run the team no problem at all. Moyes it’s better to get him out asp so summer we can get in a decent young coach not give another allardyce or pulis type coach another contract. If that happened can you imagine the reaction from the fans and how many will not renew season tickets will be in their thousands. We’re already pi–ed off with the board without this clown as a coach .

  3. Seems like some ‘media outlets’ are stirring up grumblings and rumours to cast doubt and suspicion around the management, coaching and owners….. ?
    Oh and if anyone thinks letting Psycho loose with the last 3 games isn’t lunacy, then can I remind them, Pearce is the coach of the defense, record 67 goals and counting….
