No Moyes confidence vote as alarm bells ring inside Irons

West Ham this afternoon are refusing to give David Moyes a vote of confidence as alarm bells ring inside the Irons but when the axe falls on the manager remains uncertain.

No Moyes confidence vote as alarm bells ring inside Irons

After the defeat at Nottingham Forest on Saturday, followed by the fans ” Moyes Out” demonstration things are very much on the turn inside the club,

And his disgraceful claim that he is a more winning manager than the best in our history – Ron greenwood and John Lyall – has gone down like a dead weight among backroom staff and boardroom members writes Hughie Southon.

Claret and Hugh has been exclusively  discussing the situation with key members of the club and explained ours and many of your feelings this morning in an e mail when we said: “You know how we feel. He needs the boot.”

In response our main source said we were playing like a bottom three team and that Moyes was living on last year’s Euro performances.

We said: ” Yes, you are right. We want today’s meal not yesterday’s banquet. The players looked as though they had given up on him at the City Ground.”

At that point we were told that the club knew they had a problem and wouldn’t be answering questions for a few days as they want to sort the situation out but hoped Moyes can turn it round which has looked impossible over the last 180 minutes.

Caretaker managers seem hard to find and Slaven Bilic will not be available as he is currently earning bundles of tax free earnings in Saudi Arabia with Al-Fateh and is hardly likely to give that up for a three month gig at the London Stadium.

  1. Why a Caretaker. ? Did Palace appoint a Caretaker ? Why not Conte he seems to be free and is very experienced. Appoint a Manager and stop playing games Board, you are only bothered about saving a little money rather than taking the bull by the horns. We don’t need Moyes we don’t need a Caretaker. We need a Manager, a decent one.

  2. We need to simplify the emotive Moyes question. It is not “has he been good for us?l. The answer to that one is “yes. Thank you David”. The real question is “is he the one to get us out of the rut and take us forward?” The simple answer to that is “no – if we can find someone better”. It doesn’t need to mean we are ungrateful for what he has achieved. It just means that he has done a great job for us, but is not best placed to move us forward.

  3. Moyes has had his day and it’s time to move on. But don’t overdo the nostalgia – Lyall got us relegated in 1978 and 1989,
