It may finally be time for West Ham fans to say their farewells to David Moyes as recent reports state his future is now out of his control.

In the large majority of West Ham fans’ memories, these past few years have been the most successful. For the first 2 and a half seasons, the counter-attacking football David Moyes played was effective and exciting to watch. However, in the Premier League at least, the quality of the football has dropped significantly and the results have been even worse.

In reality, it’s a miracle that the Hammers were able to stay in the fight for Europe as long as they did – their form since the start of 2024 has been abysmal.

Unsurprisingly, their latest thrashing, this time away to Chelsea, seems to have helped the board make up their mind on Moyes’ future, according to David Ornstein. “The first thing to say here is that there is an expectation that David Moyes will be moving on from West Ham at the end of this season. That is not confirmed just yet, the deliberations continue,” he explained to NBC.

“He did say in late February that he had been offered a contract, but it would be his decision over whether that would be signed and he would take that at the end of the season. But in the time that has passed, I’m not sure that contract offer is still there and I’m also not sure that it will be his decision any longer. I think it will probably be in the hands of West Ham – but whatever happens, contingency plans need to be formed.”

“That’s why I revealed they were in discussions with Ruben Amorim to potentially take over if there was a vacancy. My understanding now is that Amorim doesn’t feel that job is for him if it comes up. They have also held conversations with Julen Lopetegui, formerly of Wolves. That’s at quite an advanced stage, but again not done yet.”

“The situation has not been helped by Tim Steidten, the sporting director, who is holding these talks, being kept away from the dressing room at the training ground and stadium – this is a very delicate situation at West Ham, so let’s see how it goes.”

Since then, it seems like things may have advanced even further with Lopetegui, a move that has not gone down well with the East London faithful. However, once someone is appointed, its vital fans put any previous judgements to the side and get behind him. The worst thing about this season has been the divide amongst the West Ham family, it’s time we’re all united again.
