Two years and two battles with relegations, West Ham fans in the Transfer Tavern are beginning to grow disheartened after the move to the London Stadium away from their beloved Upton Park seems to have caused more negatives then the positives promised.
Another season to forget with the appointment of David Moyes in November the club have still not guaranteed their safety in the Premier League, finding themselves seven points clear with five games to play. A 1-1 draw with Stoke on Monday night saw heavy criticism coming from fans and pundits alike for seeing Moyes setting up his team in a negative manner, when a win would have all but guaranteed their Premier League status for another season.
Since their seventh-placed finish in their final season at Upton Park issues on and off the pitch have struck the East London club with promises of European football few and far between. A lack of marquee signings and an underwhelming appointment of Moyes have signalled that these lofty ambitions may have been premature.
However, with Moyes contract expiring the end of this season, the Hammers need a solid summer to build a solid structure starting with the appointment of departing PSG boss Unai Emery. After the Ligue 1 outfits struggle in Europe, the former Sevilla boss seems to be on his way out of the Parc des Princes with former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel in the frame to replace him, according to The Daily Mail.
With three consecutive Europa League trophies under his belt at Sevilla and the league and cup double with PSG this term, the Spaniard is no stranger to success and could be the man deliver success to West Ham in their hopes of reaching the Champions League and challenging England’s elite.
