Poll result on Moyes apointment

David Moyes’ appointment as Hammers boss has seen a narrow majority vote in favour of his appointment!

ClaretandHugh ran a poll when it became clear that he was set to take over from Manuel Pellegrini in a bid to gauge the level of support behind him or otherwise.

Some on Twitter claimed – as ever –  we had been asked to do so by the board. We hadn’t  and never have been – and the reality is the board obviously had a much larger issue to deal with than a POLL!!.

There was also a claim on that social network that people could vote as many times as they liked which is impossible – one vote per person is the limit.

The poll appeared to show that Moyes is a real Marmite character with  2,177 (2,177) voting in his favour and 2,079 (48.85 pc ) against.

  1. Not my manager not my manager not my manager
    52% isn’t a majority

  2. Sorry Hugh, but this poll result does seem to be out of line with other polls that are showing more in the region of 75-80% against. So you can probably expect the usual accusations.

    Personally I am gutted they went for him and felt very emotional about it yesterday. But its done now and as someone else said on twitter today – ‘Now my expectation has been set so low, I can only win.’

    So onwards and upwards and fully expect the new manager bounce versus Bournemouth.

  3. I agree with you Hugh. I think your readership is definitely more reasonable than most other similar sites.
    It’s done now so we have to support him whether we agree with the appointment or not. Personally I wouldn’t have chosen Moyes but I have supported West Ham for 55 years and only want the club to succeed so I will be positive and hopefully Moyes will do a good job.

  4. Who do these supporters think we were going to get?
    They do seem to live in an alternative universe, where all the top managers are beating down the doors to the Athletic stadium.
    Get behind him and give him a chance.

  5. Think of the fans who pay good money to go and see their team play like crap, they never should have moved stadium in the first place it’s nothing but a jinx
