David Moyes is on the prowl as he intensifies his search for players to sign within the winter transfer window.
ClaretandHugh learned ahead of the Chelsea v Norwich game – which the manager attended – that he was about to start personally scouting certain players as the countdown to the window continues.
The Hammers boss has made it clear that he personally likes to see any player on his list before giving the nod for the club to make any sort of bid.
There will be no player enter the West Ham set-up that hasn’t been personally vetted by the manager who has a big reputation as a hands on operator.
Claims from inside the club are that he will broach no interference on player selection – an area that he believes is entirely his responsibility ..that’s very refreshing and long awaited.
So here are the games we have found the manager can attend in Britain free of his West Ham match day duties. The Moyes watchers among us will be keeping a keen eye on the Scot over the next few days.
Here are the games we reckon he can take in:
Derby County v Bristol City
Saints v Spurs
Swansea v Liverpool
Partick Thistle v Celtic
Arsenal v Chelsea
Sheffield Wednesday v Reading
Yeovil v Manchester United
Chelsea v Newcastle
Cardiff City v Manchester City
plus 13 other Scottish games
Let the speculation begin!
