TalkSPORT pundit Adrian Durham has grave concerns about West Ham United, displaying a distinct lack of confidence over their chances of survival under current manager David Moyes, which is replicated by punters using promo codes from this website.
Durham appeared to criticise the previous regime at the club, arguing that its failures have left the Hammers rather doomed in their fight to stay clear of relegation with a gruelling set of fixtures coming up, seeing their relagation odds with bethard tumble.
West Ham’s next nine Premier League matches see them come up against seven top-half teams – including league leaders Liverpool twice. With the Hammers only outside of the relegation zone on goal difference, Durham discussed their immediate prospects on TalkSPORT by predicting a gloomy future for Moyes and his side.
He said: “I’ll be surprised if anybody’s supremely confident in saying: ‘Yep, with David Moyes in charge, West Ham are definitely, definitely staying up.’ And even if they go down, it’s probably not down to David Moyes. Because he’s been left with these players, he’s got a fixture list that looks horrific, what can he do – what could any manager do?”
Will David Moyes be West Ham manager this time next year?
While Moyes’ second spell at the London Stadium started with a brace of victories over Bournemouth and League One outfit Gillingham, West Ham have not won since – with their cup tie against West Brom and their league clash with Brighton next weekend perhaps looking like their best chances of any more on paper over the next couple of months.
Although they have the chance to do the double over the likes of Chelsea and Southampton ahead of their trips to east London, it is perfectly reasonable for Durham to fear for West Ham’s Premier League status looking at their impending assignments.
The fact Durham implied that any manager would be powerless to stop them sinking into the drop zone suggests Moyes would be blameless should they suffer the ultimate fate come the end of the season. Though in fairness to the Scot, West Ham were unlucky not to get a point against surprise package Sheffield United, while a draw against Everton is arguably rather credible – and a defeat away at Leicester is a fate many have been subjected to this year.
Therefore, the ominous look of their recent results and upcoming fixtures may paint a different picture compared to what the club could be capable of under Moyes as he attempts to rejuvenate his beleaguered side.
