It’s funny how we all see things differently; who should be starting each game, their best positions or formations but we’re all united in our love for our great club writes Claret and Hugh follower Wozza.

We’re all united in love for our great club

The latest thumping at the weekend looks to have firmly pushed many of the remaining Moyes supporters and those undecided into the much larger ‘get rid of’ group of supporters.

I’d like to think Moyes looks back the the European glory and, like me, regrets his decision not to walk away then on a high. But I’m not sure he’s man enough to ever admit fault?

I dream of waking to the news of our new head coach walking into the club and saying ‘You’re too old, too slow, not good enough etc’ as he looks around Moyes overused first choices and dated approach.

He then says: ‘Wow you’re great and we can build a team around you few’ before looking shocked at the successful youth teams and smiling with glee as he works to integrate the best into our first team.

No more playing because you always do, no more shifting every player out of their best positions on a whim. He recognises the great asset we desperately need to hold onto for our future recruitment and works with him to strengthen in the positions we all know and scream need it.

I’ve never stopped being a proud hammer and never will but these seem such obvious and small changes I just need to see the board act now and make the dream a reality.

  1. I love my club but this brand of football is really hurting. Counter attacking football is all well and good if you can defend and then attack quickly.

  2. I supported David Moyes until the pre-season debacles against Rennes and Leverkusen in which we were out-played, out-thought and out-fought. The signings of Alvarez and Kudus have just been a sticking plaster on a wound that won’t heal. We needed pace and Moyes wanted Maguire, McTominay and JWP for extortionate money. The first half of the season had glimpses of quality but in general we flattered to deceive. Sunday’s performance has been coming as we all know. I think David Moyes wants to play a more expansive game but just can’t achieve it. Either his players cannot do it or he just can’t get them to do it. And without Ogbonna as a regular starter and Dawson we have also become porous in central defence – we are no longer a real threat at set-pieces or can defend them effectively. David Moyes has done a lot of good things for our club but it was time for a change last summer. I think he’ll last till the end of the season when I hope Tim gets on a plane to Brighton and brings De Zerbi back with him.

  3. I agree Hugh.I’m always checking various websites to see if Moyes has gone.
    If the board came out and said we won’t be renewing his contract at the end of the season i could swallow that.
