The two signings who can save Moyes Hammers job


Double whammy can save Moyes Hammers job

The David Moyes managerial contract saga has taken West Ham fans on a rollercoaster of emotions, with opinions ranging from absolute certainty that he will leave to unwavering belief that a new deal is imminent. With the club seemingly kicking the can down the road, nothing can be ruled out at this point.

The manager himself must be aware of the delicate situation and the importance of finishing the season on a high note. A strong finish could be the key to unlocking a new contract. It would take brave decision to sack a manager who’d given the club four consecutive years of European football. For this reason Moyes will be acutely aware that he’ll need a strong team to execute a strong finish to the campaign.

Moyes knows the importance of a strong transfer window

Two key transfers can save Moyes Hammers job

Enter the transfer window. The pursuit of players like Kalvin Phillips and the rumoured interest in players like Jota and Emile Smith Rowe suggest that West Ham are serious about bolstering the squad. The potential impact of these signings, not just in terms of quality on the pitch but as a statement of intent. European football is the target, and the right signings could make it a reality.

Moyes Hammers job in jeopardy and he knows it

The excitement over potential signings like Jota and Smith Rowe would heightened if either could be paired with Phillips. There is little doubt in my mind that a double signing of that magnitude would get West Ham over the line.

Put simply, the squad and team would be better and Moyes will know it. With six months remaining on his deal, Moyes can’t afford to be cautious. Next years transfer budget is of little use to him so he’ll want players now.

For that reason loan deals make sense. If they work then West Ham will finish the season strongly. If they don’t . . . the next manager will have money in the pot to spend.

So Moyes will be desperate to bring new faces in despite what he says to the press. Talk of rebuilding and projects carry little substance given that he’s 4 years into his job. The manager should require nothing more than a cherry on the take an a couple of minor tweaks. If he get’s it right, West Ham could be boosted with European football and Moyes could earn himself a whopping bumper deal.

    The big problem is that whoever he signs we are still going to play cautious football, he now has amazing players that he’s playing out of position, how can we continue to have 11 players behind the ball at times and rely on a break, it’s totally boring and one dimensional.

    I hope we do sign these players although every window is the same, talk of big name players coming but some of them
    never will, Kudus and Alvarez last window being exceptions, ESR I think is unlikely because he wants to stay at Arsenal and Arteta wants to keep him. The other two are more likely Jota like many is not enjoying football in Saudi playing in mostly empty Stadiums and realising that money is not everything.
