Regular Irons critic finally has pours praise on club


Wonders will never cease!

Finally, after pouring relentless criticism on the Hammers down the years and the board in particular, the TALKsport pundit writing on the Daily Mail website now has something positive to say about the club.

Jordan has been watching the rise and rise of David Moyes this season and claims we are lucky to have him at the club.

Well, that’s one way of putting it, another would be to congratulate those who appointed him but that may be a bridge too far for the bloke.

He had nothing but good things to say about the guy claiming he should be “cherished and celebrated” before adding that he on the cusp of being involved in managing big clubs.

However, astonishingly he added that he really should stay where he is at the London Stadium  because it’s a “great job”.

He reckons Moyes looks re-energised this season too and a better version of the manager we saw take over at Old Trafford in 2013 and that he  would certainly be better equipped to manage Manchester United than he was ten years ago.

He said: “He’s still only 60 but seems to have been around forever. This is someone who should be cherished and celebrated and my word West Ham are lucky to have him.”

    Hi Hugh. On a totally different note, The West Ham web site fixture listings, is showing we have two Saturday matches directly after a Europa League match on a Thursday. Is this correct?
    It is showing us playing Away at TSC Topola on Thursday 30th November and then at Home on Saturday 2nd December at 3:00 pm to Crystal Palace.
    And it is also showing us playing Freiburg at The London Stadium on Thursday 14th December and then Wolves at Home on Saturday 16th. Is this correct. If so this would give a big advantage to the opposition.
    Usually we play on a Sunday after a European tie on a Thursday.
    This is important for those arranging travel etc.
    I thought if anyone knows, it would be you.

    Hi Eug! The fixtures for those 2 game weeks are not set yet. All teams are (for the time being) scheduled for 15.00 kickoff. I assume it will change, but not sure why it is like that

    Simon Jordan’s criticisms of West Ham have regularly been aimed at the owners. He usually speaks a lot of truth. David Moyes has been under fire for a while by some sections of the fans. There were times last season when I thought he was on his way out – as it’s the fans who normally get managers the sack. However, with the team no longer heavily relying on the departed Declan Rice, they are playing better as a midfield unit as a result of the form of Alvarez, Soucek, Paqueta, Ward Prowse, Bowen and more recently, Kudus when he was introduced.
