The West Ham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been going in on their Scottish gaffer, David Moyes in response to their club’s tweet, wishing him a happy birthday. The ex-Manchester United manager took over at The London Stadium with the club 18th and looking like relegation contenders. In mid-December though, the experienced gaffer pulled the club out of the relegation zone, and they’re yet to drop into the bottom three since then.

This has made no difference to the West Ham fans propping our bar up though, who are in no mood for niceties with Moyes on his birthday. The fans have made their discontent with their board and the manager clear this season as they believe they deserve better. At present, West Ham are 15th in the Premier League after being beaten 4-1 at the Emirates by Arsenal on Sunday. The club has four games remaining and sit six points clear of the drop zone.
The Premier League status of West Ham United will be intact at the end of the season unless things go very wrong in their last four games, although whatever the result of those games is, fans will still be calling for Moyes’ head. The Scottish gaffer has taken charge of 27 games for the Hammers, winning just seven times, with six of those wins coming in the Premier League. It’s still up in the air as to whether he will still be in charge come next season, but as long he keeps the club up he’ll have done what he was brought in to do.

Bet his birthdays are as boring as his tactics.
