A report has shared news on West Ham United midfielder Tomas Soucek as Irons manager David Moyes weighs up a ‘reshape’ behind-the-scenes.
The Lowdown: Moyes facing pressure…
Moyes’ men currently sit 18th and have bagged just three top-flight goals in total so far this term – the joint-lowest record alongside Wolves, who they face this evening in east London.
The Scotsman hasn’t quite worked out the kinks in his West Ham squad despite serious summer investment, with news now coming to light on measures that he could take to improve the starting XI.
The Latest: Soucek facing West Ham axe…
Indeed, a claim has surfaced involving one of Moyes’ midfield mainstays and the 2020/21 Hammer of the Year.
Czech Republic international Soucek, who has played every minute in the top flight for West Ham so far this season, is now facing the axe from the Irons’ starting XI.
Football Insider claim that Moyes is fighting to save his job and is now weighing up the possibility of a ‘reshape’ behind-the-scenes, which could involve dropping the 27-year-old.
The Verdict: Right call?
A physically imposing figure in the West Ham midfield, Soucek has been called a ‘monster’ by some members of the media for his aerial dominance, notably winning two headers per game this season (second-best in Moyes’ squad).
However, in recent times, the former Slavia Prague colossus has struggled to recapture his previous form, with club insider Claret & Hugh even claiming that Moyes is set for a sit down to discuss the 27-year-old’s ailing performances.
That’s not to say that he hasn’t contributed in the current campaign, though, with the 6 foot 4 tank bagging a London derby goal at home to Spurs in August and helping to salvage a 1-1 draw in the process.
Soucek’s quality when playing at his peak is evident from his aforementioned award, but time could be running out for the Czech Republic international to continue being a West Ham untouchable.
