No extension for Moyes?


No extension for Moyes?

The ex- West Ham player and now Sky Sports pundit, Scott Minto was speaking  on talkSPORT about David Moyes not yet receiving a contract extension.

He believes that Moyes is not viewed as a long term answer for the Irons.

Speaking live on talkSPORT, Minto said: “You win a European trophy, the first in 40-odd years. Your manager has got one year left on his contract. Why is his contract not renewed?

 “You know, players coming in are going to be offered a four or five-year contract, but what about the manager? So he’s not going to be here next season. They just won a trophy.

 “It seems to be that the West Ham owners don’t think that Moyes is going to be there in the medium to long term and maybe they want to see how this Premier League season will go.”

Even though our Supremo is seen as cautious and somewhat old- school in his management style, there is no denying the fact (apart from last years blip) he has brought the Hammers their most success in many years. – European adventures, two top 7 finishes and a big shiny cup.

Yes, he is not as flash or as sexy as the management styles of Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Carlo Ancelotti, but as a frequent critic of Moyes, I have to admit he has actually done ok.

Of course, we would all love to have an innovative manager to take us to the next level but let’s be patient and see what the new season brings

    And to think if we had sacked David Moyes we could have appointed Ange Postecoglou. And then we would have lived happily ever after. Attractive tippy tappy attacking football instead of ultra defensive 30% possession stuff. Go figure!

    I wonder if Pellegrini is still unemployed if we are looking for a high profile and successful manager?

    Done OK? Anybody who watched West Ham between January 2022 and say the 1st April 2023 would disagree with that. Yes we just about stayed up and we won the Conference Cup but that papered over a multitude of cracks. The play after they scored at Bournemouth this season and even the passage of play just after they scored against Chelsea shows that the managers thinking has not changed month – although obviously delighted how they pulled their socks up eventually last Sunday. I imagine players that have agreed to join West Ham have been assured that a change of management is going to happen.

    If we sign Kudus, he gets in a centre forward someone like an En Nesri and a left back all of whom can play in the left back position am think Ian Maatsen or Ivan Fresneda and Moyes effectively has a very young dynamic squad with real pace and aggression in it, will certainly be interesting, the way we are spending can only think Paqueta is done and dusted and it’s just a matter of finalising the signings, can Moyes then change our style to a high pressing better possession based team.

    Fairplay to Tim Steidten he seems to be doing what Rob Newman alone couldn’t and we are signing quality players, the question is if Moyes leaves can Steidten also get us a manager like a De Zerbi or Postecoglou that can build us into a top four – six every season team.

    If Paqueta is not playing Saturday will give us more of a clue as to how much we may or may not invest in the rest of the window and I would be happier if he was staying because he is world class.

    Would also be nice if Moyes surprised us all and changed gears because as the article points out, he has done what so many before him couldn’t and turned us into a European team.
