Moyes to blame for desperate transfer scramble


Desperate transfer scramble as Hammers seek to offset player loss

The situation leading to the sale of Nayef Aguerd is just another reason why David Moyes should have no involvement in player recruitment if he remains at West Ham next season.

Moyes was the driving force behind the pursuit of Aguerd over a two-year period, culminating in the Hammers’ £30 million acquisition of the defender. The Hammers manager is known for his meticulous player evaluations, often referred to as ‘The Moyes MOT,’ which partly explains his deliberation in signing players.

Whilst this thorough process aims to prevent transfer mistakes, they still occur too frequently. Moyes has been pursuing Kalvin Phillips for nearly three years, yet the player appears unsuitable for West Ham. Additionally, Kurt Zouma’s transfer, despite his talent, raises questions about the adequacy of our player assessments, particularly concerning medical evaluations. The less said about Nikola Vlasic, the better, and even James Ward-Prowse’s usage as an ineffective left winger or benchwarmer is starting to reflect poorly on Moyes’ judgment.

Now, we’re left hoping for a Saudi sale to offset another poor decision by Moyes. This notion is absurd and perhaps improbable. Ultimately, the market will dictate Aguerd’s value, and if he returns to France for £15 million, it will highlight West Ham’s tendency to overpay yet again.

    We will end up giving him away … Poyet,Anderson,Vlasic,Haller,Cullen,Scammaca,Dawson etc etc . Moyes shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near transfer dealings or indeed the London Stadium . He is clueless
