Moyes so happy with his new boys


David Moyes could hardly be happier with life right now.

And in fairness to the manager he explained way back that the odd poor season would be thrown into the  a club’s progress  as the campaign to improve continued.

And that’s how it is turning out this season after a largely disappointing Premier League campaign last term, saved for the Moyes and his squad by the Conference victory.

Not all were impressed by the signings last summer but there can be no complaints this time around with the likes of James Ward Prowse and Edson Alvaraz in particular looking in fine during our excellent start.

Both were impressing against Luton along with the outstanding buy of last summer Lucas Paqueta who set up a fine goal for Jarrod Bowen.

And afterwards the manager was keen to offer special praise to the new boys as he summarised his thoughts on the game.

He said: “I’m really thrilled with this month. I’m more thrilled for the players because we’ve introduced a couple of new boys this month and they’ve all great characters. 

I’ve got some new staff members too which are making me feel good. We’re looking at a lot of things and trying to do things. It’s all like a new coat of paint really and we’re enjoying it. 

We’ve done some good business, we hope, and we wanted to only bring in players we thought could improve us.”
