David Moyes has been part of West Ham United during their worst times recently, and once again succeeded at the London Stadium.
This is the second time he has taken charge of the Irons and kept them safe from relegation despite growing fears in the capital.
The last time he did it, David Gold and Sullivan decided to cut ties with the Scotsman, although that failed miserably with Manuel Pellegrini eventually faltering.
Charlie Nicholas has claimed that the Irons would be “crazy” not to extend Moyes’ deal and back him in the transfer window this summer.
“David Moyes did a fantastic job,” he wrote for Sky Sports.
“He worked a way to get the defence better, Lukasz Fabianski hasn’t been as good as in previous seasons but he’s still their best keeper, he’s got more out of midfield too, and got Michail Antonio playing in a position which suits him.
“I think they would be crazy not to extend his contract and say here’s a bit of money, that’s the second time you’ve got us out of trouble, you did it with a bit of style this time too.”
Nicholas is spot on. Moyes has once again proved his worth in charge of the Irons, and now he must be backed.
It has been reported by the Guardian that Moyes is preparing a summer clearout at the London Stadium, with up to six players potentially leaving.
The Scot isn’t playing it safe either, with Albian Ajeti, Felipe Anderson, Fabian Balbuena, Manuel Lanzini, Arthur Masuaku and Andriy Yarmolenko all potentially leaving.
If they do, West Ham will have a serious challenge to bring in some fresh faces and that should be down to Moyes to prove himself.
