Nobes speaks out on Moyes’ position

Mark Noble has made it clear there is little or no chance of David Moyes being given the bullet!

The new director of football insists that the Scot’s job is entirely safe despite the noise surrounding his position right now.

The board have made it clear on various occasions that they are backing the manager but that performances and results obviously need to improve.

They want to give him the chance top show that his summer signings – after splashing out over £150 million – can do the job.

And whilst nothing in this game is forever, Nobes has made it plain that his own role has been linked to the relationship he has forged with Moyes over the last two and a half years.

Whether the situation will remain the same should results continue to do downhill is debatable but a new manager may want to bring in his won people which could compromise Nobes’ new job.

“My relationship with David Moyes over the past two and a half years is probably one of the reasons that West Ham asked me to do this job,” Noble told The Guardian.

“Probably a group of fans, yes (are disillusioned). But there’s always going to be that at every club now. You hear people saying the fans are not happy with (Jurgen) Klopp at Liverpool.

“That’s the industry we work in now and, because of social media, it has become a lot louder.”

  1. I guess Noble includes Claret & Hugh writers in his group of “disillusioned fans”. I suggest we follow Noble’s lead and get behind the team and manager over the next month or so for a set of crucial fixtures and we remember what a remarkable job the manager did from Jan 2020 to May 2022.

    • Declaring we don’t think the manager can do it is not the same as not hopping he does.I hope he proves us wrong but don’t think he will. If Nobes does that’s fine. Moyes has been very clever in having Mark appointed. Helps secure his own position

  2. As I have often said, David Moyes deserves the chance to get us back on track in the league. In Europe we have maximum points so viewing the season so far as a disaster is really not looking at the full picture

  3. The fans ultimately pay your salary. If the fans don’t come and support the team then there’s no money for your salary. It’s been a downward spiral for over a year, time for a change

  4. I desperately hope he does well, makes good decisions and succeeds. That said, like C&H, I have major concerns. When he brought success, we the fans cheered him, we didn’t blame him for previous failure. So now we are not playing well, results are poor, we are surely right to call it out, and not just blindly regale previous years’ success? His achievements last year won’t save us this year. He has (IMO) wasted young talent, spent big money, and not succeeded. So perform please, make us cheer, or step aside.
