Moyes under serious five game presssure

By Hughie Southon

West Ham’s position on David Moyes’ future remains unchanged as the squad prepares for a huge match against Arsenal on Boxing Day evening.

As we have reported in the past, the board often adopt an approach of expecting so many points from a number of games when the team is in trouble.

They have made it clear of course for a number of weeks that they are sticking by the manager for now whilst making it clear that results and performances must improve.

The next three games will prove critical – Arsenal away, Brentford at home and Leeds away – from which the club will be looking for a minimum of four points.

An exit from the FA Cup away at Brentford and either a draw or defeat Wolves would be crushing blows for the manager.

The board will take into account injury problems but with new signings in January very unlikely as a result the Hammers will ned to show a major improvement if the club and manager are to maintain a long term relationship.

  1. He should gave been sacked straight after the last game but the board have ignored all the important metrics over the last year and decided to stick with him. He has lost the support of the fans and players. And all because of his stunbirness and defensive approach. He ront change and board have incorrectly given him these games.

  2. The money we do have needs to be spent on a CD , that would help !

  3. Johnham says it perfectly except that he should have been gone even earlier for me. The board are bringing problems to themselves now for being blind and deaf . The hatred will return to the board instead of praise for their 180mill backing to a poor coach that doesn’t learn a thing and has taken top players backwards and loses our academy players by ignoring their talent. Get him gone asp poch in and watch this team climb to new heights.

    • I’m afraid he’s got that ‘Dead Man Waliking’ look – it’s only a matter of time – cue Kevin Keen or Trevor Brooking stepping into the breach! 🤔

      Who’ll do it full-time I haven’t a clue! 😳
