West Ham United to hold board meeting over David Moyes future as manager before Everton clash
The West Ham board are set to meet before the clash with Everton this weekend to discuss the future of David Moyes as manager, according to 90min.
The Hammers slipped into the relegation zone after defeat to Wolves last weekend, and the fans have turned on the manager after shocking results over the last 12 months despite reports that there were no plans to make a change.
But now a “high level” meeting will be held before the next game which could see Moyes sacked from his position as manager before the clash with his former side at the London Stadium on Saturday afternoon, according to a fresh report.
“Sources have told 90min that a high level meeting to discuss Moyes’ future will be held before Saturday’s crunch meeting with Everton, and that could see the 59-year-old removed from his role despite some at the club feeling he should be afforded more time,” they wrote (17 January).
Is it finally time? Has the day finally come that the West Ham board will do the right thing and let Moyes go?
It’s been a long time coming, with the run in the Europa League papering over cracks last season with many believing the team’s focus was just on winning that competition.
But this season we have spent £170m on improving the squad and gone backwards, with Moyes’ style of play causing the team far too many problems rather than helping.
There is so much quality in the side that there is no way West Ham should be in this position, and it’s quite clear that Moyes is the biggest problem at the club right now behind our poor results.
Everton are absolutely shocking right now and if we can’t win that game it should be the end anyway, but we definitely have a better chance of that victory without Moyes in the dugout.
