GSBK have no plans to sack David Moyes at West Ham United - David Ornstein

West Ham United currently have no intentions of sacking David Moyes despite a poor run of form, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein.

The 59-year-old has overseen a dip in results over recent weeks and the disappointment was compounded by a stoppage-time defeat at home to Crystal Palace on Sunday (6 November).

Certain sections of the London Stadium crowd were very disgruntled at the performance and result against the Eagles and voiced their frustrations loud enough for GSKB to hear.

But Ornstein insists that the Hammers board are not interested in sacking the Scotsman anytime soon and are willing to back him as much as he needs to turn the form around.

Moyes’ contract runs until the summer of 2024 and he had guided the Irons to six-straight wins at home prior to the visit of Patrick Vieira’s tricky Palace side.

Too soon

After everything Moyes has done for West Ham since he returned to the club, it would be very unfair to sack him off the back of a handful of disappointing results.

The club are not in any immediate danger of being relegated and the quality in the side is there but things haven’t quite clicked just yet at the London Stadium.

It can be easy to forget that West Ham just became the first team in history to win all six Europa Conference League group stage matches and they did so comfortably too.

There is perhaps not a manager available who could get more out of the squad at Rush Green than Moyes when everything gels together but these teething problems were always going to occur.

A lot of change was made over the summer with several new signings and Mark Noble departing the dressing room but things will turn around soon with the board’s trust in Moyes.
