Moyes’ verdict on season

David Moyes has taken the positives from West Ham’s season as they continue to eye a sixth-placed finish.

The Irons were well in the mix for the top-four in the first half of the season.

However, the second half of the season saw the Hammers’ Premier League form fall away just a little.

The Hammers did manage to reach the semi-finals of the Europa League, however, only losing to eventual winners Eintracht Frankfurt.

West Ham could still finish sixth in the Premier League but to do so, they will need to beat Brighton on the final day of the season and hope that Manchester United drop points against Crystal Palace.

And the boss has been delighted with the progress shown throughout this season.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he said: “I believe we’d have shown we’ve tried to maintain – maybe not quite better it – but we’ve gone further in most of the Cup competitions than we’ve done for a long time, especially in Europe.

“To maintain where we’ve been in the Premier League… we’ve got probably the two best teams in world football now, and we’re on the verge of maybe breaking into the big six again.”

The Irons manager has also confirmed that he would like to add players to the squad in the summer, provided the right ones become available.

He added: “We can add to it and maybe get a bit more competition in some areas than we’ve had at the moment.

“We’ve got a real difficult game this weekend.”
