The chances of David Moyes staying beyond this season are “slim” according to a respected journalist.

David Moyes has achieved things at West Ham that most fans could have only dreamed of. He’s brought them not only three seasons of European football, but also their first bit of silverware since 1980. 

On paper, Hammers fans should be delighted with the Scotsman, unfortunately that is not the way things have gone. A large portion of the fanbase are fed up with his approach to games, wanting 

a more ‘modern’ style of football and have been asking for him to be sacked since last season.

However, these fans may finally be getting what they have been asking for at the end of this season. What seems to be likely is that the Scotsman, for better or for worse, will not have his contract renewed when it expires in Summer 2024, says Daily Mail’s Kieran Gill.

When asked about the chances of Moyes getting an extension the journalist said it’s “slim in my opinion. It is worth remembering that Moyes was given the choice to stay or go in the summer.”

“The club felt he earned that right after winning the Europa Conference League,” he continued. “He met David Sullivan on June 9 – two days after that party in Prague – and told him his work was not done. But it is revealing that he was not handed a new deal as a reward. Moyes’ contract is still due to expire at the end of this season and every time I’ve spoken to someone inside of the club, including at board level, they say they’re in no rush to change that.”

“They want to see how this campaign unfolds first – where they are in the Premier League, how they fare in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, if they qualify for Europe for a fourth successive season. But the fans’ frustrations with the brand of football will be taken into account,” Gill concluded.

Interestingly, this is in line with what our own man in the know, ExWHUEmployee, has recently reported. The insider has previously stated how he believes that, no matter what, this will probably be Moyes last season at the helm but the board will not give into the demands of some fans to sack him before his contract runs out.

Whether you’re a fan of his or not, Moyes has given this club some of its greatest moments and, as ever, this is looking like it will be another rollercoaster of a season in East London. Let’s hope we can say goodbye to a club legend on a high note, whatever that looks like.
