Fan reaction: Same Irons story game in game out – change things DM

There is no stopping the Moyes in or out discussion at the moment. Here Claret and Hugh Facebook member Anna Ssasin gives an interesting take on his situation after recent results!
David Moyes has hinted at his West Ham future by suggesting that he's always speaking to agents on his phone about player recruitment

Same Irons story game in game out – change things DM

By Anna Ssasin
I’m not jumping in the Moyes after the defeat in Greece because David Moyes is a little like marmite
After an average start for us this season, why does it appear the DM is not capable of a plan B? His team tactics don’t change, oppositions know almost to the minute what decision he is about to make, his team selection is the same, it lines up the same way and his game plan appears to be the same (and I don’t mean to necessarily take 3 points)!
You can keep the same players but have a plan B or even C just change things but if  JWP, Bowen etc are marked out the game – as many managers understand – the Hammers become  toothless and lack the ability to pose a threat to half decent sides.

As soon as we take the lead we sit back and invite teams to attack us and too often lose the game with  players seeming lacklustre and devoid of ideas. Does that stem from the coach and tactics?  I would say yes but a lack of tracking back and putting in a tackle is a personal thing.
Unfortunately I don’t think the Villa result won’t be the only game when we play like that this season and for all the huff n puff DM seems to talk after the games, I feel the North London bandits will be rubbing their hands at taking 6 points from us this season.
Villa was a poor performance I read that the Euro game was worse, very similar to last season one poor performance a couple of real bad performances followed then a blip with a win and back to poor performances.
The performance roller coaster continues. Everton will be interesting will this be the start of a Moyes out campaign if we don’t win?
Please DM change things up and make us a team/force with which to be reckoned and maybe a Plan B – a team with bite to cause other defences concerns not just encores week in week out

    I think hammers fans need to wake up these are good players with a poor manager we won a cup final in which we were second best by a long way were lucky to beat Chelsea (missed penalty)were hanging on against brighton after leading 3 0 and were again poor in the wins against sheff utd and luton just they had no luck against us .as I said before 3 years now without a quality striker in the Premier league is just ridiculous just like our so called manager. Rant over

    Will this nightmare never end ? David Moyes supporters will be writing, but I ask who changed seven Players and tried to be defensive ? The Team, ? No. DM. We need to change now. The Team is good enough. DM IS NOT !!!
