West Ham United board will not be rash with David Moyes amid miserable form

Journalist Dean Jones believes there will be no “rash decisions” taken by the West Ham board regarding the future of David Moyes.

The 59-year-old’s future at the London Stadium has been under some scrutiny after the Hammers’ worst start in the Premier League era.

However, Jones, who has also reported for Eurosport and Bleacher Report in the past, believes that the former Manchester United manager will be given time to find solutions.

“West Ham intend to give Moyes time to move this team upwards,” he said while talking to Givemesport. “There are not going to be rash decisions made.

“There is confidence that between now and the World Cup, he will have overcome the problems of the early season.

“He deserves that chance and will probably be fine, but if things don’t go well, then it would be interesting to see how the board view his future when they break for Qatar.”

Important matches ahead

West Ham entered the season hoping to improve what they did in the previous campaign where they managed to qualify for Europe for the second time running by finishing seventh in the league table.

However, after just seven matchdays, it is already looking like a tall order for the Hammers to replicate or better the last season’s performances as they are currently placed in the drop zone with just four points.

Those results have definitely increased pressure on Moyes whose future is no way near as secure as it looked to be just two months back.

The Scot has proved to be a real success after joining the Irons for the second time and it is because of this reason, his immediate future is apparently secured.

But such is the nature of football business that if the results don’t improve in the upcoming weeks, his reign might well come to an end at the club, sooner rather than later.
