West Ham supporters remain pretty buoyant in the Transfer Tavern over a week on from their team’s crucial 2-0 victory over Watford in the Premier League, a result which moved the East London club up to 12th place in the table.
David Moyes’ men went into their clash with the Hornets off the back of a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Brighton in their preceding league outing, which brought to an end their solid six-match unbeaten run in the league. Yet the Hammers got back to winning ways last time out as goals from Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic secured a routine success for Moyes’ side, thus moving them level on points with Javi Gracia’s Watford in the Premier League table, four points clear of the bottom three.
Subsequently, there have been many delighted West Ham fans in the Tavern in recent times, and they are likely to be further intrigued by a recent report from The Daily Express, which details potentially significant developments in the future of manager Moyes.
The former Everton and Manchester United chief replaced the sacked Slaven Bilic at the London Stadium back in November and has since moved the Hammers out of the Premier League’s relegation zone, having picked up 21 points from his 16 league matches in charge.
Yet the 54-year-old only penned a contract until the end of the current campaign and talk has been rife in recent weeks about whether or not the club will extend that should they stay up, and recent reports suggest that they plan to do just that by reportedly offering Moyes a two-year deal if he keeps West Ham in the Premier League.
And this potentially significant development is likely to intrigue and perhaps delight our resident Hammers fans, who have seen Moyes make a huge difference since his appointment back in November.
Landlord’s verdict: West Ham were sat in the Premier League’s bottom three when David Moyes took over as manager back in November, and while things didn’t go to plan to begin with for the Scot, he has since turned things around at the London Stadium.
21 points from his 16 league games in charge, including 13 from their last eight matches, has steered the Hammers away from the bottom three, and speculation has been rife in recent weeks as to whether Moyes will remain in charge beyond the end of the season.
And recent reports suggest that, were the 54-year-old to keep the club in the top-flight, Moyes would be offered a two-year deal to remain as West Ham boss, in a potentially significant development which is likely to go down well with Hammers fans given the big impact the Scot has made in recent months.
West Ham fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
