David Moyes has outlined his vision to make West Ham a club that challenges the elite on a regular basis.
There is no denying that this season has been seen as a huge step backwards for all connected with the club, having witnessed our Hammers finish in the top 7 of the Premier League in consecutive campaigns.
During this time, West Ham were also riding high on the European stage, having reached in the semi final stage of the Europa League, and this season look forward to the knock out stages of the Europa Conference League.
Domestically however, this season has seen David Moyes’ side fall well below expectations with the club currently fighting to remain in the top flight with considerable amount of change having a huge impact, especially in the first half of the campaign.
Although things appear to be turning a corner, with West Ham now recording only one defeat in the last seven matches in all competitions.
Moyes stated that although very pleased with what has been achieved with West Ham to date, has stressed he feels there may be an over-expectation now in East London.
“If you’re gonna come to West Ham and expect to do six, seven years where you’re competing at the top, I think you’re probably kidding yourself, Moyes told Mike Calvin’s Football People as reported by Sportsmail. “I think anyone with any real football intelligence will probably go along with that.
“You’ve got no entitlement to be there all the time, and when you are a club which have probably never been there, well there’s a good chance you could probably drop out of it.”
Despite the somewhat underwhelming comments from the boss, Moyes did add the he sees West Ham as a major club and one that can grow to compete at the top end on a regular basis.
“The biggest thing for me at West Ham is I see it having that much potential to improve, get better and be a real major club,” added Moyes. “It is a major club, but become a real challenging club and I think for the past couple of years we’ve proved that.
“I think as a football club, I think there is so much room for improvement. I think we can do things better here. I think that in the future, hopefully I will be able to help them or guide them. Show them the way that I think we should be going forward and using my experience to help that.”
