West Ham: Insider admits David Moyes is under ‘pressure’

West Ham: Insider admits David Moyes is under ‘pressure’ -Premier League News

West Ham manager David Moyes is under big pressure in his job after the Hammers’ poor start to the season, according to Tottenham ‘insider‘ John Wenham.

The Lowdown: Hammers suffer big dip

The hope was that West Ham would again be European challengers in 2022/23, continuing to go from strength to strength with Moyes at the helm.

Instead, it has been a grim opening to the season for the Hammers, who have won just one of their first seven Premier League games, looking like a shadow of their former selves.

Their performances have understandably led to criticism for Moyes, who until now has generally been lauded for the job he is doing.

The Latest: Wenham admits pressure is on Moyes

Speaking to Football Insider, Wenham claimed that the Scot has to improve or he could find himself out of a job:

“They will be very disappointed with their start to the season. The board invested very, very heavily over the summer. They spent more than Tottenham did and brought in the likes of Paqueta and Scamacca.

“Aguerd as well. I think they have been unlucky with his injury, I think he is a very good ball-playing centre-half. He went under the radar and it was a bit of a coup for West Ham to attract him.

“They got that one done bright and early as well as making the signing of Kehrer. They made a decent number of signings and you have to be disappointed if you are a West Ham fan if you ask me.

“They have underperformed massively so far. They have had a decent set of game as well so I think Moyes will be under a bit of pressure. Money has been spent and the owners will expect more. They kept their best players in Rice and Bowen as well.

“Moyes will be given time after getting to a European semi-final for the first time since the battle of Hastings but there will be pressure.”

The Verdict: Lots of credit in the bank

While Moyes rightly earning negative reviews at the moment – any team’s form is always ultimately down to the manager – things have to get a lot worse for him to be sacked.

The team is simply going through a tough time, with the likes of Tomas Soucek and Jarrod Bowen out of form, among others, but they are too good not to come out of the other side.

Granted, if results continue to be poor for another month or so, Moyes could find himself in real trouble, but for now he should be backed to turn things around.
