West Ham: David Moyes’ job ‘not currently under threat’

West Ham: David Moyes’ job ‘not currently under threat’ -Follow up

West Ham United manager David Moyes is ‘not currently under threat’ despite an underwhelming start to the Premier League season, according to journalist Paul Brown.

The Lowdown: Back to square one

The Scot previously found himself under pressure after a poor run of results, and despite getting the team out of the relegation zone, he is pretty much back to where he started.

The Irons were knocked out of the Carabao Cup this week following a penalty shootout loss to Blackburn Rovers, having suffered a last-minute defeat at home to Crystal Palace last Sunday.

After his decision to substitute Said Benrahma against the Eagles, some West Ham supporters were heard booing, although David Sullivan has reaffirmed his commitment to keeping the 59-year-old in charge.

The Latest: Brown’s behind-the-scenes update

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Brown revealed that West Ham aren’t considering sacking Moyes at this moment in time, but suggested that the hierarchy will be aware of any pressure from the crowd.

He said: “I can understand why West Ham fans are not happy. Their owners promised them a lot many years ago and they seemed on the verge of being able to realise some of that last season, but they’ve clearly taken a step back.

“I think it’s no surprise that the manager is getting a bit of stick and coming under fire. I know a lot of West Ham fans and I have a lot of them in my ear all the time complaining about him. A lot of them now want him gone.

“Personally, I think it’s a bit too soon for a club like West Ham to be putting the manager under pressure and, from what I’m told by sources inside the club, his position is not currently under threat at all. That, obviously, could change.

“The issue here is that West Ham’s form in the Premier League has not been good for some time.”

The Verdict: Give him more time

Whilst the Irons are just two points above the drop zone, Moyes deserves to be given more time at the helm considering his fine track record at the London Stadium.

The Glaswegian has won 75 and drawn 35 of his 174 games in charge across his two spells as Irons manager and has led his side to consecutive top-seven finishes and a Europa League semi-final.

West Ham have also booked their place in the last 16 of the Europa Conference League, and the 59-year-old just needs to somehow find a way to transfer his team’s form from the continent to domestic duties.
