Moyes stays say board – an analysis


By Hughie Southon

The board’s declaration to CandH that David Moyes remains 100 per cent safe in his job comes as no surprise.

And one thing that needs to be said is this is not the dreaded vote of confidence often transmitted when things are going wrong.

They take the view that he has spent around £200 million on signings during the summer and that is now down to him to make them work.

There may also be an element involved which has seen them run out of immediate liquidity and that it would cost a small fortune to pay him and his staff off whilst taking on a new manager and his dressing room assistants.

Whatever the reasons, for now – at least until Christmas say – the decision is probably correct as a new manager would undoubtedly want new players and the continual pay outs is a quick way into the knackers yard.

Beyond that Moyes has to make his signings work and quickly if we aren’t to find ourselves in a near traditional bottom half scenario when action over his position may HAVE to be taken.

  1. I was concerned before the window that Moyes wud buy the right players and tbh I am still concerned that the players he has signed are not suited to our system. Secondly Moyes has spent alot of money on attacking players so I cannot understand why he sets up his teams so negatively. If he had started this team against Everton we would have won the game Rice and Fornals in midfield with Benrahma, Paqueta and Cornet supporting Antonio. No what does he do stick with pkayers like Soucek and Bowen who ate completely out of form. Our performances have deteriorated drastically since Jan and I believe if Moyes does not change his thinking soon he will be gone long before christmas.

  2. Didn’t that say that to Grant and Zola ?

  3. I would say by Christmas it will be all too late.Not many in the regulation zone at Christmas survive.
