Moyes proved right over transfer priorities

David Moyes has been proved right over his summer transfer priorities.

Many supporters were crying out for the left-back position to be the main priority calling for Arthur Masuaku and Aaron Cresswell to be dropped and sold.

Instead, the manager concentrated on a centre back and a right-back despite frequent criticism.

He was blasted for signing a cheap right back in the form of Vladimir Coufal and a cheap loan move for Craig Dawson after missing out on James Tarkowski, Nikola Milenkovic and Wesley Fofana.

That cheap Czech right-back is now the first choice with Ryan Fredericks and Ben Johnson forced to wait patiently in the wings.

Arron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku are both in Moyes’ starting lineup in the new formation and in the best form of their West Ham careers and unlikely to be dropped anytime soon.

Craig Dawson is also said to be impressing the manager and his teammates in training through his effort and work ethics even though he is the fourth choice centre back. Fabian Balbuena, another player supporters were calling to be sold has come back into form keeping Issa Diop out of the team.

In David Moyes we trust!

  1. Should have kept him first time around instead of letting Pellegrini waste c.£120m

  2. Moyes is putting his heart and soul into the job trying to repair the damage that Pellegrini did. I wonder where we would be now if Moyes had been appointed after his first stint in charge.

  3. amazing insnt it ?! An experienced football manager has a better grasp of what is needed for the club, than the 14 year old keyboard warriors who’s judgement on football is based purely on fifa ratings and daily mail transfer gossip.

    Hopefully now people can see the benefit of just cutting out the noise, and letting the man manage. Judge transfer windows at the end of them , not halfway through them. The turnaround in our team this second time under moyes is remarkable. Energetic, hard to beat, no passengers etc , but wont change everything in 2 transfer windows. But seems clear we have a proper set up now, with back room staff, diligent manager who scouts players and opposition religiously. long may it continue !

  4. I think most fans’ thoughts on needing a new LB were based on the fact that Moyes very rarely used it and his predecessor steadfastly refused to entertain a 3CB system – it ultimately led to Pelle’s downfall,imo and Moyes has,finally, settled on it,for the last six games,because of injuries to Diop and Fredericks.
