West Ham manager David Moyes’ position is currently safe although there are concerns, with ExWHUEmployee providing an update.
Our Hammers have seen a significant drop in performances and results in recent weeks, with 5 losses registered in the last 7 Premier League fixtures, with the latest being a 3-2 defeat at Brentford despite leading 2-1 at half time.
Despite West Ham winning the Europa Conference League trophy last season, domestically David Moyes’ side underachieved, spending the entire campaign in a relegation scrap – so it was always expected that the pressure would mount should the club not show a big improvement in the Premier League.
The signs at the start of the season looked good however, with positive results recorded over the likes of Chelsea and Brighton., whilst also starting well in the Europa League gave promise for a much improved campaign this time around – although the results in the last few weeks have prompted some concerns
Speaking this week on The West Ham Way Podcast, our co-host and club insider ExWHUEmployee has reported that the clubs hierachy have not impressed with the recent performances and results, although stressed that they are backing the manager still, with the plan to review the situation at the end of the season.
“The Board are concerned,” stated Ex. “They recognise that the results of late have not been good enough. However, they do still back Moyes, and will continue to do so unless something drastic happens.
“Our Board typically like managers to honour their contracts, and therefore they tend to stick. After talking to top sources, at this stage they want to judge things at the end of the season. Also, they feel regarding any potential replacement, it’s better to appoint in the summer rather than in mid-season.”
Ex has also reported that Moyes has offers on the table for when his deal expires, which also means that there is no hurry from either side to review his current deal, which is expected to be at the end of this current season.
“David Moyes does have offers on the table, including a role at UEFA. So as of now, both West Ham and Moyes are happy to wait until the summer.
“I have been told that Tim Steidten has drawn up a contingency plan should Moyes be let go, although I must stress this is standard for clubs, and lets be honest would be unwise to not have one in place.”
