David Moyes hints that he is close to agreeing a new contract following West Ham’s draw with Bournemouth.
The majority of football fans, and a large chunk of West Ham fans, do not understand why some are so desperate to get rid of David Moyes. In reality, both sides of the argument have extremely valid points but essentially it comes down to success vs entertainment.
Undeniably, the football played under Moyes is not getting any one of their feet in excitement but it is extremely effective. As a result, the Irons have achieved 3 consecutive seasons of European football as well as a major European trophy.
With them having a good chance of making it into the top 7 yet again, the club seem to think that Moyes has done enough to earn a contract extension, and the Scotsman reveals that talks are set to continue very soon.
“We’ll get back on it now the transfer window is shut. We’re well down the line and moving on with it,” Moyes stated following West Ham’s 1-1 draw with Bournemouth on Thursday. “We’ll pick that up again in the next few weeks.”
“West Ham is a really big club, a club which is growing and getting better. We’re nudging it along, taking steps. Bournemouth didn’t feel like a good step. but when you’re sixth at the moment in the position you’re in… I want to challenge, challenge for competitions.”
“Most of the time we’ve been away from that, at a different level. I’m trying to make West Ham as strong as I possibly can,” he concluded. “We’re doing a lot of good things, sometimes we’ll not do the right thing but we’ll always try to do the best thing.”
No matter what your opinion on David Moyes is, the matter of fact is there is no right or wrong answer on whether he should stay or go. However, football is a results based business, and it is hard to imagine that the board will sack the manager who is still guiding the club through one of the most successful periods in their history.
