West Ham manager David Moyes has opened up on the struggles of this season and his thoughts on his future in East London.

The Hammers boss has endured a difficult campaign with West Ham significantly underachieving domestically, which has seen the club embroiled in a relegation battle throughout the season, although hopes has somewhat lifted of late.

Aside from poor showings against Brighton and Newcastle, 2023 has actually been a rather positive spell for the club, with our Irons losing only 5 of the 20 matches played in all competitions thus far.

This has been coupled with the fact that West Ham are once again in a European Semi-Final following an emphatic 4-1 (5-2 agg) win over KAA Gent on Thursday night at London Stadium, showing signs that the form we came accustomed to under Moyes previously could be set to return.

The boss has admitted he has struggled personally this season which has had an impact on his home life, with the relief of victory on Thursday evident as the Scot celebrated Declan Rices sublime solo goal in a manner that hasn’t been seen for some time.

‘I hope I’ve got more of them celebrations to come,” Moyes told the Daily Mail. “Sometimes you must not forget how much our families all care. They are engrossed in it.

‘They don’t want a miserable husband or dad coming home, and they’ve seen a miserable husband or dad quite regularly, to be honest.”

This season has, understandably, piled huge pressure and raised questions over the long-term future of Moyes at West Ham, with speculation rife that the former Manchester United man could be in his final season at the club, although ExWHUEmployee reported this week that no decision has been made and will be reviewed as usual at the end of the season.

Moyes though has stated that he has no plans to leave the club, and in fact is already getting the plans in place for next season where he expects to remain as manager.

“I’m planning for next season,” Moyes told the Evening Standard. “I’ve got no intention [of leaving]. I’m getting on with my job, doing everything that I do and obviously, my head’s down and focused on how I’m getting myself more points at the moment. That’s the only thing I can think about.”

The Hammers boss will be hoping another 3 vital point can be added today when West Ham take on Bournemouth on the south coast, with the in-form Cherries expected to provide a stern test.
