West Ham supporters have been pretty despondent in the Transfer Tavern in the last few days after seeing their team lose comfortably away at Brighton on Saturday, a result which sees them slip to within three points of the Premier League’s bottom three.
David Moyes’ men went into their clash at the AMEX Stadium having won two and drawn the other four of their preceding six league matches, a run which put some distance between themselves and the relegation zone. Yet the Hammers’ solid unbeaten streak was ended by an impressive Seagulls display on Saturday, with goals from Glenn Murray, Jose Izquierdo, and Pascal Gross securing a vital 3-1 win for the South Coast outfit, a result which moved them level on points with Moyes’ side in the Premier League table.
Consequently, there have been several disappointed Hammers fans in the Tavern in recent times, many of whom are likely to be intrigued by a recent report from The Daily Telegraph, which details a significant update regarding the future of manager Moyes.
The former Everton and Manchester United boss replaced the sacked Slaven Bilic at the London Stadium back in November with the team languishing in the Premier League’s bottom three, signing a deal until the end of the season.
And while the 54-year-old has moved them away from the relegation zone with four wins and six draws in their 15 league games, reports suggest that the Scot is ‘unlikely’ to remain in charge beyond the end of the current campaign.
And this significant update is likely to interest our resident West Ham fans, who have certainly seen an upturn since Moyes arrived, but ultimately the club aren’t out of the relegation mire just yet.
Landlord’s verdict: David Moyes has certainly breathed new life into West Ham since his appointment as manager back in November, with four wins and six draws in 15 Premier League games moving them out of the relegation zone.
Yet the Hammers have failed to win any of their last three league games and are now just three points clear of the bottom three, and recent reports suggest that the 54-year-old is ‘unlikely’ to remain the club’s manager going into next season.
And while West Ham fans are likely to be interested by this update, there are more pressing matters for their side to focus on, not least a vital home clash with Watford on Saturday.
West Ham fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
