Pundit: David Moyes has four games to save his West Ham United job
We’re delighted to welcome former West Ham United striker Frank McAvennie as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at the London Stadium…
David Moyes could be sacked by West Ham if he can’t turn things around in the next four or five games, according to Frank McAvennie.
The Hammers have lost five of their opening seven Premier League games this season and find themselves in the relegation zone during the current international break despite a club-record spend during the summer transfer window.
And with the club facing games against Wolves, Fulham, Southampton, Liverpool and Bournemouth coming up, results in those games could see the club forced to make a decision on his future.
“I think David is under a bit of pressure,” he told West Ham Zone.
“I didn’t think I’d be saying that, but football is a results based industry. He’s got four or five games I think, David. To turn things around.
“I think he’s going back to his negative self now and you can’t do that at West Ham. They need to be free. Bowen and all that, you’ve got to get them playing and enjoying it.
“So yeah, I don’t know what the situation is with the goalkeeper or with any of the positions. He’s keeping everything close to his chest at the minute, which is not good. I don’t think. But it is what it is.
“I don’t know what the situation is. They’re not playing well. They’ve got to get defenders back, that’s the biggest problem.
“I’m afraid to say that he’s got enough points in the bag that the supporters will give him time, but he’s got four or five games I think. It’s not looking good.
“It would be nice if he could turn it around, it would be nice.”
