New Year’s Day look at Moyes


New Year’s Day look at Moyes

January 1 is always  a day of appraisal and new beginnings. So in the spirit of goodwill and hope, it is time for us at Claret and Hugh as take a new look at the managerial position here at massive our West Ham

To describe David Moyes as Marmite probably does an injustice to that particular jar of black stuff with the problem being for him being whether we look at stats or style.

Despite the Conference win and victories over Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester United, many refuse to accept that he’s the man for the job over the next three years insisting that he remains ultra defensive and out of tune with the world renowned West Ham Way 🙂

I still remain reluctant to accept that another deal is a great idea but that is tempered by the arrival of Tim Steidten who appears to have become David Sullivan‘s No 2 and was responsible for bringing in the brilliant Alvarez and totally outstanding Mo Kudus.

The pair have been seen together before every game during warm-ups smiling and seemingly getting along just fine and if that is now the case then a new deal looks on and likely to work.

Certainly it seems from all I hear behind the scenes that a new deal is likely  so we are very much into lump it or like it territory.

    Whilst I am far from a fan of Moyes’s style of play, I am obliged to accept that, in terms of his record of results, he is probably the most successful manager that the club has ever had.
    So, give him a break & try to accept that simple fact. And give him the credit that he deserves.
