West Ham United board tell David Moyes result must improve quickly
West Ham United board tell David Moyes results must improve quickly as the pressure rises on the Scot, according to 90min.
The Irons currently sit 16th in the Premier League table, just one point above the relegation zone after a disappointing start to the campaign.
Moyes’ side have lost their last three league fixtures and it’s understood (90min, 15 November) majority shareholder David Sullivan has made it clear that results must improve, and fast.
However, at the moment, the West Ham boss’ position is safe, with the board having no immediate plans to relieve him from his duties at the London Stadium.
On the edge
To say Moyes is on thin ice is a big understatement at the moment. It’s the most pressure he’s been under since he returned to the London Stadium. The players do need to shoulder some of the blame, but ultimately, the Scot isn’t helping himself with some of the decisions he’s making of late.
Taking Said Benrahma off against Crystal Palace was a particularly bizarre choice, and his substitutions have been ineffectual. There will be many who think Moyes has credit in the bank, after West Ham’s remarkable run to the Europa League semi-final last season. Yet, there is also a strong argument to suggest he has taken this team as far as he can.
Moyes is a superb manager when it comes to being the underdog, with players who are not expected to achieve big things. However, with a talented squad at his disposal, his defensive football is not cutting it for West Ham fans at the moment.
The West Ham boss is currently in Switzerland to discuss some of the game’s burning issues with UEFA.
