Moyes: The board are backing me

David Moyes insists the West Ham board are continuing to back him despite the club’s dreadful form.

The Hammers have been in dire straits in recent weeks and have lost all of their last five Premier League games, culminating in the 2-0 loss to Brentford.

That game has left the club in 17th position in the table, only clear of the relegation zone based on goal difference.

A defeat to Leeds United in midweek, plus one club ending the Nottingham Forest v Southampton game as victors, would see the Irons drop into the bottom three.

But Moyes insists the club’s powerbrokers are right behind him and are continuing to support him as he bids to turn the form around.

Speaking to reporters ahead of the Leeds game, as per the club’s official website, he said: “The Board have been right behind me, which is really good. They’ve been very supportive and backing me.

“I think West Ham supporters have been incredibly supportive. They’ve seen what’s gone on here the last three years and they’re desperate for us to do well.”

It remains to be seen what may happen if West Ham lose to Leeds and are then beaten by Brentford in the FA Cup this weekend.

  1. Its absolutely farcical what’s going on, how many more losses in a row before a decision to sack moyes is made. Do we need to lose 10 games on the trot. A pathetic decision not to sack him before the world cup, the figs on the street even knew it wlhad to be done then. Maybe the dogs on the street shoukd ve on the board running the club, they wud do a better job.

  2. If you watched the interview you can see by his manner that he understands he is on the verge if being sacked. To say the fans support is yet another lie, the fans want him gone. I have it on good authority that the players want him gone. I have stopped paying any attention to what be says as most of the time it is total and utter rubbish. To say the fans are behind him is just asking for more hostility towards him. I dont believe the board are behind him either despite all the rumours they are backing him.
