Moyes starts to plot new structure for Irons

David Moyes will use the extended break in the game to plot the way forward for West Ham’s footballing structure over the next few months.

The manager was thrown into the chaos of a relegation threatened season for the second time when the Hammers finally relieved Manuel Pellegrini of his duties.

And as a result he had little chance to even organise his back room staff properly but eventually brought in Kevin Nolan to join himself and long time No 2 Alan Irvine.

Now, however, he will be discussing the way forward on scouting staff and a long term policy for the club which has been left with just one at senior level although the academy is well off for them.

The big question is whether the club will bring in a director of football and how that will affect Karren Brady’s position as deputy chairman.

Moyes has never fully explained his position on working with a director of football but in the meantime is keen to get the scouting situation sorted out with the board.

  1. Don’t you think it’s time you let go of your unhealthy obsession and hatred for Karen Brady?

  2. S B ~ We as fans of WHU are very diverse lot, but with every loud mouthed faux par of our Vice Chairman, opinions are polarising as to the single most wanted change at the club!
    This is not Moyes job and was the mistake they made with Pellegrini,imo.The club needs a set up that is above the manager – DOF) and a CEO (that are none of G S or B) that should be hiring or overseeing the club infrastructure which includes managers,coaches,fitness,medical and scouting staff.The manager can make tweaks to his immediate coaching staff, but there must be an intact set up always in place, whether a manager goes or arrives,imo.

    • I’m never too sure about DoF and the like. When the brown sticky stuff hits the rotating device, the manager gets sacked, not the ones with the posh job titles. I know putting all your eggs in the manager’s basket can be risky (especially when you’ve had ‘Arry Redknapp in the past), but appointing a whole additional layer of highly paid management doesn’t seem sensible. My view is that it’s too easy for someone with no real skin in the game and playing with someone else’s money to make sloppy decisions – Roberto, anyone?
