There will be no Forest firing for David Moyes should  West Ham boss be beaten by Nottingham Forest at the weekend. However, the manager is clearly aware that his time will be rapidly running out fast should he fail to come up with a couple of seriously important wins in the Europa League on Thursday and the Premier League on Sunday.

Anything less than that puts him on the thinnest ice he has had under his feet since he became manager of the club as the club continues its slide at the highest level. He will be hoping the return of and Edson Alvarez will arrest the awful shambles we saw during the match at Brentford at the weekend.

Lucas Paqueta‘s absence may have been the reason for him going with a 4-4-2 formation, the first time most of us will remember him doing so but it did nothing to help during a period after the interval which was s bad as anything we have seen from the squad.

With Chelsea winning at Spurs last night the Hammers have now slipped into 12th position and a defeat by Forest would possibly see us heading into the danger positions if teams below us get results which go against us yet it seems the club is still not ready to replace the 60 year old Scot and are backing him to the same extent as last season.

Yesterday (Mon) we ran a story is which we said we could get no answer from the club on the question of what would happen should the midlanders beat us – having seen off Villa at the weekend but we would let you know if we did. Late last night we were told by a key source: “He will still in position, BUT………………………. Forest is not an easy game, BUT we need two win wins this week.”

    If we lose against Forrest surely it’s time.
    This Moyes scenario has been going on far too long.
    Make a change and let’s move onwards and upwards as soon as possible…please.
