West Ham fans still want change

The majority of West Ham fans would still prefer a change of manager this summer despite David Moyes efforts in improving fitness and discipline of the squad as well as guiding the Hammers to Premier League safety.

The Scotsman finished strongly with seven points from three games in the final three games but it appears to be too little too late as far as West Ham supporters are concerned.

A fresh poll on Twitter in the last 24 hours of 1,510 Hammers fans shows 74% do not want the board to renew his contract while 26% back him to continue as manager next season.

Moyes is technically out of contract from West Ham but he still found time to speak to David Sullivan on the telephone on Monday morning to have his normal post-match debrief with the Chairman.

Sullivan has already interviewed Paulo Fonseca on Monday evening and is expected to interview Unai Emery later this week.

Insiders insist David Moyes will still get an interview as the third managerial candidate and we are told that he still has a 25% chance of landing the West Ham manager job next season. A decision and announcement are expected in nine days time.

  1. Change ? Of course we want change, we didn’t move to a 60,000 stadium to have a manager that would struggle to get a job in the championship! Get in a proper manager and give him the tools to succeed or we may as well move in with the Orient!

  2. Can’t understand why so many are venomously opposed to him being our next manager?…. He’s made us fitter more organised bought in a great backroom team. Kept us up. It wasn’t his squad he hadn’t bought in his own players and admittedly had to play cautious football as a result of where we were in the league. Once we were safe look at the football we played. He made Everton into a very very good team…..I say give him a two year contract. All those saying he should’ve gone for it against Stoke. Remember we have an awful defence and the margins were that slim had we lost we would’ve been right back in the mix.

  3. very few everton supporters would have moyes back and feel that he was too formulaic and defensive. exactly the same as we have mostly concluded. many supporters in the league think the same of allardyce, that he isn’t too bad and so on. only when you’ve seen him manage your club do you realise how crap he really is.

    so, why should get bin moyes? because he’s ‘just’ competent. bilic wasn’t – he let the players gets very unfit and was without an plan in most games. moyes is competant, he gets us fit and organised, able to gain points where possible, but he isn’t entertaining and he isn’t bold. which, as a club who doesn’t really stand a chance of winning much, is pretty much what fans can realistically desire at our level.

    that’s why we need a change. i’d rather we went for a maverick and had to bring in a ‘moyes’ style rescuer in nov/dec (if it went wrong) than suffer a season of ‘respect the point’ style dour football. imagine starting with moyes and it going wrong. who would we turn to? allardyce?

    it’s time for a bold and brave move.
