CandH Exclusive by Hughie Southon
West Ham boss David Moyes last night came under the heaviest pressure yet when he was told that time is running out for him!
The Hammers board are desperate for the manager to turn things around and have already rejected the chance to replace him with Sean Dyche Dyche who has now taken over at Everton.
The former Burnley boss took over after Marcelo Bielsa – another name linked to the Hammers job – refused the Goodison first team position but said he would look after the under 23s for a year on no wage.
This all occurred after Moyes stayed in charge at the Hammers by beating the Toffees at the London Stadium last weekend,
Now, however, the regular insiders we talk to at the Hammers are all making it clear that time is no longer on the manager’s side.
We were told categorically by a top source: “What we don’t have is time ! We need results now and the manager is very well of the thinking from those inside the club.”
At last the Board have taken action.
What action exactly have they taken?
With Newcastle,Chelsea and Tottenham to come I don’t expect him to be here after these games.
He should have been sacked 2 months ago, even then it was nit soon enough. The owners have let everyone down by not acting before now.
He should have been gone already.
I’m starting to get real nervous about us staying up this year.
Recruitment seems to be spontaneous and with youngsters not getting a chance.
I’ve looked across the PL in regards to incomings/outgoings a lot of clubs have been smart and also we seem to devalue players and make a loss. We need a fresh strategy and approach
Thank God Dyche has gone to Everton. His style makes Allerdyce look exciting!
Too little too late. Other, more succesful, teams are coveting our young players that we apparently don’t think are going to make it and other teams that are in trouble are being active and decisive while we dither. Moyes has been a disaster for this club over the past 13 months and it is now getting too late for any prospective new manager to make a difference. I fear the worst.
The owners obviously don’t want to sack him. It’s becoming more and more like the Avram Grant season. And we all know how well that ended.
In reality they have now left it too late to make a managerial change, as no decent, self respecting, progressive thinking manager would take the chance of having a relegation on his record.
So they are sitting, hoping that Moyes can eke out just enough points for survival.
I don’t worry about it any more. Seen it so many times with this club. Always one step forwards, three steps back.
