Jim White makes David Moyes admission ahead of West Ham Europa League clash v Eintracht Frankfurt
Jim White believes it will mean a great deal to David Moyes if he can guide West Ham to a European final.
The Hammers have it all to do after losing 2-1 at home to Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg of the Europa League clash.
Dean Ashton believes that it’s going to be tough, given the lack of goal-scoring attackers in this West Ham side.
Speaking on talkSPORT, Jim White said, “Oh my goodness, what it will mean for Moyes to make it to the final. They have a bit to do, but that bit is doable, you say, Dean?”
To which Ashton responded, “Absolutely, their home form is abysmal. If you’re a West Ham supporter, you must think we’ve seen the best of Frankfurt.
“There is a lack of goals in the West Ham forward line so that’s a worry. But they can absolutely get the job done.”

Can this be done?
The Hammers obviously would have liked to be in the driver’s seat for this game.
Playing the first game at home, the expectations were that they would win it and take a lead going into Germany.
However, now they now have it all to do in what would be a hostile German atmosphere.
That said, the Hammers have overcome adversity before and there’s no reason to think that they cannot do the same thing again.
Declan Rice will be key as he always is but we will expect more from Michail Antonio and Jarrod Bowen.
They will be the goal-scoring threats for the Hammers and Moyes will certainly want them to deliver the goods and win his side the game.
