Steidten/Liverpool comment may see squad confidence sink further


Hammers confidence must be sinking as mess grows… what the fans are begging to see happen to Moyes

West Ham squad confidence must be sinking fast ahead of the trip to Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon as  Tim Steidten makes his feelings known on the Liverpool possibilities!

Steidten/Liverpool comment may see squad confidence sink further

The 0-6 drubbing by Arsenal was our worst moment in a lot of years and I have no doubt City Ground boss Nuno Espirito Santo will have been watching it and reminding his squad of how they were only beaten 2-1 at home by the north Londoners and unlucky to be beaten by Newcastle.

But the Hammers squad – short of Lucas Paqueta – who disappeared from the London Stadium stand seat he was occupying at half time last Sunday – will have been watching the events  no doubt in despair.

The latest piece of news is hearing technical director Tim Steidten describing his feelings on being possibly tracked by Liverpool an honour although he remains “generally happy” with West Ham.

As Gonzo said to me on the phone a couple of minutes ago that’s a bit like telling your wife,  partner of girlfriend that you are generally happy with them on Valentines Day.

If this club isn’t very careful – and it needs David Sullivan to be as tough as it gets to make sure this isn’t the case – we will descend into the kind of mess we have become so used to down the years.

Yes, Moyes has done a good job to get us into a Euro semi final and to win a trophy. Bu as we were told by our own source although the pair get along as people Steidten is deeply frustrated with Moyes window attitude in transfer windows which barely allows him to do his job as technical director.

Now – as we reported -it is understood Brady has become Moyes’ cheer leader so who really is in charge of things right now?

Sullivan badly needs to take the bull by the horns and sort this so worryingly situation under control, This is between him, Moyes and Steidten,

Brady – if indeed the story of her banging on about keeping Moyes are indeed correct – needs to zip it. Essentially Moyes needs to go!

End of!
