West Ham-David Moyes has a decision to make following injury news

Moyes stories can be safely ignored

Stories that David Moyes has told friends he will not be West Ham‘s manager next season can be safely ignored as neither he or the club have come close to making their minds up.

The Hammers board always make a decision on such issues at the end of a manager’s contract – if of course he hasn’t been sacked in the meantime – and the club has told Claret and Hugh that is the protocol they will be following with the Scot.

Thus far they are delighted with the situation at the club after winning a trophy and finding themselves in seventh place ahead of the game against Arsenal and Moyes looks to haveĀ  patched up any differences between himself and technical director Tim Steidten that may have existed.

Throughout the season the pair have been conversing and smiling on the touchline before games as the squad has warmed up which hardly suggest there is much tension between them.

Football Insider claims to have learned from his “friends” that Moyes doesn’t believe he will be at the club next season which is much the same as other sites were saying when he was under pressure in the summer.

But the key Claret and Hugh source told us exclusively: “He is entirely safe in the job as things stand. There is much of the season left and as has always been the case no decision will be made until May or June.”

Moyes himself has regularly made it clear that he loves the club and wants to remain so it seems that unless the wheels fall off entirely over the next four months he and the club will agree a rolling one year deal.

    Oh may all that is good forbid. Make the sign of the cross in front of yourself and hope it never happens. Do the Board want to kill fans with pure boredom ? If he is success then I prefer the top Manager kind. Better to forgo a top Player and get one. Successful football, watchable football and our young Players staying at the Club.
