The stats say Stats say Moyes is the Hammers No 1 boss

West Ham podcaster and historian Nigel Kahn spent tens of hours researching to identify the greatest Irons manager of all time in top flight leagues (Premier League and old Division one) and David Moyes was the clear winner.  

Stats say Moyes is the Hammers No 1 boss

The formula looks at six different metrics to come to that conclusion.  

•Win percentage

•Draw percentage

•Loss percentage

•Average goals per game

•Average Goals conceded per game

•Average points per season.

Claret and Hugh says: So there you have it but of course rather like possession stats during games these can mean little or nothing. How many times have team had loads of possession and lost the game. Nigel has used a total of six metrics to come to this conclusion but the one which is missing is the entertainment metric. And those of us who have lived long enough to make a decision on that would ALMOST CERTAINLY ensure a rather different conclusion. CANDH would put Ron Greenwood in the No 1 position, Johnny Lyall in Number Two and Harry Redknapp in Number Three with probably Avram Grant, Glenn Roeder only below Moyes although Sam Allardyce could easily join them.

  1. Absolute bullcrap
    Greenwood and could only dream of the riches that Moyes has squandered.
    “The crowds at West Ham haven’t been rewarded by results,” he observed in 1977, “but they keep turning up because of the good football they see. Other clubs will suffer from the old bugbear that results count more than anything. This has been the ruination of English soccer.”
