David Sullivan

Report: Moyes & Sullivan have agreed to part ways

Talk Sport are reporting that a mutual agreement has been reached for David Moyes to depart the Hammers in May.
Journalist Alex Crook has hinted that David Moyes and West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan will ‘shake hands’ and go their separate ways at the finish of the current season, irrespective of whether or not the Irons remain in the Premier League.
Quite how this supposed agreement is meant to motivate the West Ham boss to give everything to the cause for the remaining games is anyone’s guess.

Moyes has endured a brutal campaign at The London Stadium and with the Hammers fighting against relegation, the Scotsman has struggled to reproduce his form over previous seasons despite a significant transfer outlay.

Sullivan and Moyes could go their separate ways

Speaking about the chances of Moyes departing the club at the end of the current season, Crook said: “I think actually David Sullivan at West Ham deserves some credit,” he said.

“Because he probably knows that David Moyes is reaching the end of the line there, but they have surveyed the options and decided, ‘now is not the correct time to make a change, who is the best person to keep us in the Premier League, David Moyes.’

“I think he will probably do that and at the end of the season, they will shake hands, and they will go in a different direction.”

    To little to late. Why risk the Team and it’s future for a ‘gentleman’s agreement’. Hope we don’t regret it.

  • rollercoasterhammer says:

    i think the motivation for Moyes will simply be avoiding having the relegation on his shoulders and CV. he possibly also thinks this is as far as he can take the the players he has. bringing us back from the brink once (twice?) and 2 very exciting campaigns, a European adventure and possibly setting us up for another one will be satisfying enough for him. and us. this is a decent squad, needing some fairly obvious tweaks and transfers but the club knows somebody else will have to get the best out of them. so do the rest of us, i imagine

    If this turns out to be true(we live in hope)then i hope that the board have already lined up a replacement and it only takes days not weeks to get him on board.This summers transfer market is going to be a tough one and you need a new manager in who can make the decisions about who stays and goes quickly if not we could be looking at another long hard season ahead regardless of what division we are in

  • Clive says:

    Speculation presented as fact. I doubt Alex Crook knows anything more than anyone else.

  • BoleynIrons says:

    If this had been during the WC break and brought in a progressive manager like Emery at Villa we wouldn’t be in this position. To say Moyes has saved us for the 2nd time is ridiculous as he puts here In the first place. He’s divided the changing room, cast many players adrift and some are not motivated to play for him. How Rice can be happy is crazy,battling for Europe in the league is where should be not scraping a 1-0 win at Fulham.
    Can’t wait for him to go.
