West Ham: Fans react to statistic about Moyes’ use of substitutions - West Ham News

It has not been an enjoyable return for West Ham since Premier League football resumed, as two 2-0 losses to Wolves and local rivals Tottenham Hotspur has seen them drop to 17th, and only above the relegation zone on goal difference.

Journalist for The Athletic Roshane Thomas tweeted out a statistic about substitutions, which seems to highlight a flaw in David Moyes’ managerial tactics and many Irons fans have had their say about it.

The journalist posted an image which showed the average subs used by managers per game this season and Moyes sits second bottom of the list with only 2.33 subs per game.

With the Hammers losing 17 games so far this season, you might have thought that the Scotsman would be higher up this list as he tried to change his team up when the Irons are losing.

Their league table position shows that players have not been performing and it might have been better for Moyes to utilise his subs more often to try and get better results.

Thomas summed it up by saying ‘West Ham’s bench strategy needs to improve if they are to avoid relegation,’ and it seems like the tweet has seen many Hammers fans fume over Moyes’ decision making.
