David Sullivan wants manager David Moyes to remain at West Ham  for “many, many years.”

Despite the manager making it clear on several occasions that he won’t be discussing a contract until the end of the season it’s clear that the co chairman is ready to make the appointment permanent.

In a video from the club whilst talking the West Ham TV Sullivan says: “What I like about David Moyes is that he is very hard working, he’s always at games.

“When he was Everton manager he was always at games watching players. He puts in a long shift at the training ground and I think in life generally the hard you work the more likely are results. He’s a good manager and he will prove it. And I hope he stays at West Ham for many, many years and we win things and he is very successful.”

  1. First, let’s wait until the points are in the can, a modicum of consistency has been established on the park, and the Club has shaped a credible leadership strategy – not its usual PR propaganda – to ensure successful player recruitment in the summer. Then let’s look at future coaching appointments. What is this knee-jerk? It is pathetic, embarrassing even.

    No taking away from the players/team what they achieved today though.

    Psychologically this was a huge win. Lots of credit for a good all round team performance. Although I’m not a fan of Mr Moyes coaching philosophy, he certainly deserves credit for the discipline he has coached across the team. Take my hat off to him for that. The players deserve credit for responding to Mr Moyes’ challenge to take responsibility for stepping up to the plate. In fairness, neither Mr Moyes nor the team can be blamed for the recent spate of injuries.

    What Mr Sullivan’s premature comments about the coach’ future indicates is his sheer lack of leadership judgement, and the complete absence of a strategic hand on the club’s tiller. It’s all knee-jerk drama and histrionics with Mr Sullivan. How can that behaviour be considered to be the ‘hallmark’ of reasoned leadership? And rather than bashing on about Mr Moyes’ never-ending future at WHUFC, why not focus on the players who responded to their coaches invitation to take responsibility to deliver. They did as invited. And, Mr Sullivan should be celebrating the players’ performances. Not talking childish gibberish about Mr Moyes being with the club for ‘many, many years’ , God help us all. A sound and deserved win today without doubt: respect all round. COYI

  2. It doesn’t matter what the owners say. The professional moaners will whinge on, like the old women they are, regardless. They’ve probably been calling for the ‘board out’ since Terry Brown! I’m not sure some of them even know that there’s a different board nowadays, lol.

    They are doing what they do best, and probably this is what they really enjoy best about football… whining. We could be top of the league, win both cups and in the champions league. This lot could still bore for England! lol. To be honest I feel sorry for them. Can’t be a happy life… 😀

  3. Instead of knocking peoples views why don’t you put you’re boardettes views that are worthy of praise , tells us what they do that attracts dildos like you to them ! Use some vision and facts to prove you’re point as were all looking forward to you’re views instead of slagging of fellow posters with concerns over the clubs leadership ? Ruffllites views hold weight if you think about them logically ! Its all suck it and see from the next level bullshyters !! Some can’t see it ? Most can !! 😁

  4. Would have been hard to focus on players taking up Moyes invitation to take responsibility as they only played and responded yesterday. This interview took place in midweek.
