C and H tells board how fans feel on Moyes


Once again Claret and Hugh how fans feel on Moyes

This is the second time we have been moved to do so and it follows the West Ham manager’s declaration that he had been offered a contract. If so, it is verbal as there is nothing from the club, its briefs who need to check the thing, or anyone else. Only Moyes!

And one wonders why he needed to talk about it despite being questioned. He’s usually pretty good at saying “No comment.”

C and H tells board how fans feel on Moyes

Before going further I have to congratulate my No 2 Gonzo on his excellent piece into what may really be going on in the Moyes mindset. If you haven’t done so already, do so here Moyes PR stunt betrayed by his own words – West Ham News: (

Like Gonzo I believe he is on his way and it may easily be to Saudi Arabia perhaps, Hmm not a bad call that!

In the meantime we have told the board that there are major complaints from the fans, the sole issue being they hate the man’s style of football.

We added that he has no charisma unlike Harry and Slaven for example so he can’t get any sympathy. It really is about the horrible football we are watching.”

The board gave no on the record responses either to the manager’s words on the offer of a deal or the fans complaints, other than if we start winning again things may quieten down.

We explained that was a big IF and MAY as it was only about the horrible football we are watching.

Gonzo has thought this thing through and has put an excellent perspective on the words of Moyes – do read it.

    Good evening C + H,
    I thank you for identifying the coaching/managerial problem at West Ham, and bringing this to the board’s attention.
    Kindly allow me to point out an error.
    The Moyes complaint cannot about the type of football he is currently playing at West Ham, but about …
    a) Current and seriously bad form of the team as a whole and individuals who have weakened in the past months. Just have a closer look at our 1st team keeper, and the amount of 14 goals against in the last 4 matches. We seriously have the worst centre-backs in the league. Gimme Oggie and Dawson anytime.
    b) Mismanagement and Moyes’ dislike and public criticism of some players ie. Benny, Cornet, Scamacca, Alex Kral etc and favouring of Soucek, Bowen, Kurt Z, Antonio, Phillips etc.
    c) Wastage of millions of pounds by Moyes on wrong and overpaid signings, not premier standard. And further loss of millions as West Ham 1st team drops further on the Premier log.
    d) Goals not achieved, and an expensive 1st team not improvingconsistently to become a regular top 4 team.
    ☆ This dear friends are mighty more serious than just playing bad football. And if the board don’t see the severity of the problem, then they too are not serious about upgrading West Ham.
    ☆ And add to that, the compilation and presentation of a 5 year plan to bring WH to a place where the club can challenge for cup and even the league title. Once again, the lack of such a plan, with a strong commitment by all, just keeps us as a dinosaur club with no ambitions.
    ☆ Coyi. God bless West Ham.
