David Moyes and his West Ham squad deserve plenty of praise for their recent performances in the Premier League. After losing their first two games, they now have eight points from the subsequent four matches.
Irons legend Frank McAvennie has been discussing this turnaround in form and believes manager Moyes will sign a new contract.
McAvennie discusses David Moyes
Speaking to Football Insider, McAvennie said: “I think the club will give him a new contract but I also think they will wait. He has just come through the door but I think he will sign a new two-year deal by January.
“It is one of them, I think David Sullivan and Mr Gold will be saying, ‘Hold on. We don’t need to give too much away, let’s wait until January and save ourselves a bit of money.’
“But David Moyes deserves a new deal.”
Does the West Ham manager deserve a new contract?
West Ham seem to have turned a corner over the last month as they have performed well against Tottenham, Leicester, Manchester City and Wolves, remaining unbeaten against four of last season’s top seven.
It looked bad for the club and manager when they lost their first two games of the season. However, emphatic victories over Wolves and Leicester City, as well as draws against Spurs and Manchester City has seen the mood turn rather more positive.
It seems like the squad are feeling positive too – the Hammers players are reportedly backing Moyes to be handed a new long-term contract following the club’s resurgence since lockdown.
If the manager can keep the mood upbeat and the results consistent, then it seems like a no-brainer to offer him a new deal. Not only would it benefit the club, but he would also deserve it.
