Moyes weighs up Hart/Adrian contract options

David Moyes has not entirely ruled out offering Joe Hart a new deal if he can show the same form he demonstrated against Chelsea on Sunday.

One swallow does certainly not make a summer in the manager’s world but Hart’s fine performance at the Bridge appeared to show there was a lot more in his locker than he has managed to produce so far this season.

And with Adrian out of favour and anxious about his own long term Hammers future, Hart may get a last gasp opportunity to make his loan stay permanent.

However, despite being on a free the club would be unwilling to hike his £110,000 a week wages and indeed would want him to take a pat cut bringing him in line with the rest of the first team.

ClaretandHugh has become aware that Moyes is looking at a number of keepers as the club’s position becomes more secure with the bookies latest quote being 25/1 against us being relegated.

The goalkeeping dilemma is one the manager wants to solve quickly but we understand that Under 23s youngster Nathan Trott isn’t considered ready at this point and could be heading out on loan next term.

  1. Doesn’t make sense. Hart is probably worth £80k a week…. but no more than that, we can’t really let Adrian go and letting Trott out on loan would leave us on thin ice. Goalkeepers are as expensive and vital as outfield players and we can’t afford to mess with our budget when it may not be necessary. We have several critical areas on the pitch that needs sorting out and that will tie up our money … or whatever there left is in the kitty,

  2. First things first….before we talk about which keeper’s to kee, let’s weigh up Mr Moyes’ contract options.

    Leave now like his ex-Everton “buddy” , Mr Henry.

    Leave after we are relegated.

    Leave after we have secured survival, with genuine gratitude for the order, structure and fitness he has brought to the team and genuine relief. That would be a win-win outcome.

    Those are the contract options.

    New manager? How about Boris Johnson or Nigel Farage; maybe Michael,Gove or Jqcob Rees-Mogg, or better yet Amber Rudd assisted by Lady Brady.
