Moyes pressure lifts – it’s all such a change


Ok, given last season let’s take a serious look at where we are right now!

Last season it seemed the Europa Conference League was a major distraction for us as we were in great peril at one stage to hang on to our Premier League status, despite our epic run to the final in Prague.

But the mighty Irons saw off Fiorentina and as a result, things are still bouncing at the London Stadium.

There was a slow start to the summer window but eventually James Ward-Prowse, Edson Álvarez, Konstantinos Mavropanos and Mohammed Kudus arrived. We have also seemed  to  have taken the momentum from being European (Conference League) champions into domestic football.

Also, the pressure is finally lifting from the now youthful looking David Moyes, who has maintained his calm despite a lot of fans calling for his head.

So, the Hammers are unbeaten in four Premier League matches of which they have won three. We await the start of the Europa League and this time will try and  balance playing twice a week a lot better than we did last season.

So far it’s all looking rather good !

    I agree, but let’s see whether this mood shift and outbreak of rational thinking persists if we lose our next two games to Man City and Liverpool.
