David Moyes at West Ham

Recommended Posts

Proving himself not to be as over the hill as people said? Think West Ham fans were after something more inspiring once Pellegrini left but they’re organised now and could be a decent mid to upper midtable side

Think he gets unfairly lumped in with Allardyce, Pulis etc. He’s not a long ball merchant and has done some good jobs. Manchester United job ruined his rep though.

Yeah and Sociedad, but fair play for going to Spain even if it didn’t work out

He's made a lot of bad decisions since it didn't work out at Man Utd. West Ham is probably the most similar place you'll get to the conditions he succeeded under at Everton. He is what he is.

Utd, Sociedad & Sunderland. Three jobs done shite. I don’t think he’s awful by any means, I think @RandoEFC summed it up when he said “he is what he is”.

Let's see how the rest of the season pans out. 

West Ham have previous for going on a purple patch of form at random times then just losing all kinds of confidence and being totally shite and uninspiring for the rest of it.

The "chosen one" getting thrown under the bus by Taggert.

Playing so many men behind the ball, his odd's will always be low.

I quite like Moyes but that's really bad and to be honest, that alone would've made me not go for him as Man Utd manager.

It was the biggest gripe we had with him while he was at Everton, took us from relegation candidates to European football but his negativity against the "big six" was astounding, especially away.

And it looks like it's repeating itself this season as well. Lost at Man City, lost at Man Utd, lost at Chelsea, lost at Arsenal, drew at Tottenham (in an extraordinary comeback to be fair), lost at Liverpool. It feels almost like a mental block. I had the same thoughts about Rodgers last year in that our record away at the biggest teams, not necessarily the best, was rubbish, but in fairness he seems to have fixed it. Moyes hasn't managed to in years. Yesterday a good example of why he's failed too, played for 0-0 and only went for it when they went behind, and at 1-0 down they were easily the better side. It's just overly negative.
