Moyes says Sullivan’s transfer influence to be reduced

David Moyes says David Sullivan will “stand aside a bit” from player recruitment in the coming months.

The club signed Joao Mario on loan from Inter and Patrice Evra on a free transfer at the start of the month, but Moyes does not expect Sullivan to have as much say in deals in the summer.

He said: “Hopefully we’ll find ways of churning it back out and trying to make decisions which are right.

“They have signed an awful lot of good players here, a lot of good players – Manuel Lanzini, Marko Arnautovic – so there’s no criticism, but we’re going to set up something that hopefully gives us another look.

“It’s going to come a little bit away from the chairman. The chairman is going to try to stand aside a bit from it.”

Sullivan has already revealed plans to improve the club’s recruitment, and it remains to be seen if Moyes will be given more control over who he is able to buy.

  1. Means nothing, try to stand back ? also is he going to spend some money? that’s all we need to know

  2. So he does have a say in transfers then ? Africa gate seems to have gone quiet ?
    He’ll try to stand aside a bit ?? 😂😂 nothing will change as long as he’s in charge of transfers. Moyes is kidding himself ! Unless sully finds next level dosh he will be driven out !
    He’s lost the support of most of us so he needs to change his ways ! The summer will tell us if he has or not ! I can’t see it but i live in hope 😉

  3. If we survive this year & Moyes stays I believe he can turn West Ham into a decent club- & that would be fine by me. Solid premiership, the odd cup run, a club & a team that the fans can identify with & that outsiders respect. Lovely jubbly.

    But that will only happen if the club is modernised in all areas. And that means a much more professional set up, including a much reduced input from above. More decisions delegated. Money for players is still vital of course, but changes to the club structure are important too for the long run. So like Lazarus I will be hoping these promises are backed up. But soma annoying results yesterday that took away some of the shine from Watford result. So first things first- another three wins at least!!

  4. Yep, & when you stand back from the transfers etc, they will still find something to moan about, they can’t help themselves, the only thing that stops the depressing moaners is when the team is on a successful run of results, seen it so many times.

  5. Be great.
    Sound like Moyes is already working on negotiations to stay & so are the club w Sully basically issue new recuriment strategy which is bascilly Moyes.
    I like Moyes but his recruitment does worry me at times. Bc want PL experience or British & sometimes those just aren’t the best players. Or that we can def afford.

    But seems as if they are already working on Moyes staying it be best for both really Club doesn’t have to try & get another Manager Moyes rebuilds reputation. Moyes already has Core he likes just hope him & Chic can work it out bc Chic can be so good when used right.
    But unless we go down Moyes will stay on he has all the negotiationing power too.

    He won’t want a DOF but if Sully is to be out we need someone who has these relationships & can work this deals. Sure Moyes would do it himself but can’t do it all. All for watching a player but van tell after 1 game & that all had time for in Jan so think Maddison was wrote off & others.
    I like the idea of being hands on but Moyes needs to trust his guys too & watching tap can rewinf etc not the same as being there but for study can be better.

    At least we had a good win now when we come back real question is van we get 2 Wins in a row Finally.
