Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

Too much negativity on here for me. No, he isn’t exciting or ‘next level’ but he did what was asked of him last time and (IMO) earned the right to spend the money (initially) thrown at Pellegrini and try to build his own team. Let’s not forget what he achieved at Everton. More consistency than we’v...

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

Man United and Sociadad then? Was shocking for both. Can Moyes keep us up? maybe, maybe not. Can he get us to top 6 or win us a cup. Not a chance in hell. After all isn't that what the goal is for West Ham as a football club. The club say they have ambition, appointing Moyes to once again get us to...

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

Win percentages ignore some very creditable draws.

Sunderland were an utter mess regardless of manager. He was sold a pup there.

Re: David Moyes - 18th Permanent Manager of WHUFC

Ffs give it a rest, you lot. He's an experienced PL manager who, I'm not sure if you noticed, kept us up two seasons ago, after the mess Bilic made of the start of our season. Sorry he's not a PL winner - how did the last one work out? How did Ranieri work out at Fulham? Proper West Ham fans don't c...

Re: Manager 18 - David Moyes: yes or no? [POLL]

Felt for Jane when we pied him off last time.

Hopefully he comes back in with a point to prove.

I voted yes. The bloke deserves a chance.

Re: Javier Hernandez Signs

Excellent player and never saw any attitude problems at all. People didn't like his mannerisms? A striker has a right to demand the right service - and any pointing or 'petulance' was just him wanting to score as many goals for us as possible. Probably rightfully thought that if he was going to be b...

Re: Mark Noble - West Ham Legend

Knits the team together. Works selflessly. Marshalls the rest of the team. Drops into space defensively. Retains possession. Plays the killer ball. Essential to our style of play.

Anyone who questions his contribution is football-illiterate.

Re: ⚽ Watford v West Ham Utd: match thread

Fab has conceded way too many this season, so:

Roberto

Zab
Diop
Ogbonna
Cresswell

Rice
Fornals
Lanzini
Anderson

Haller
Ajeti

BENCH: Martin / Balbuena / Masuaku / Fredericks / Wilshere / Antonio / Snodgrass / Chica
