West Ham: Irons natives ‘not happy’ with David Moyes

West Ham: Irons natives ‘not happy’ with David Moyes -Premier League News

West Ham United natives are ‘not happy’ with David Moyes and will be wondering why the club didn’t approach Unai Emery, according to pundit John Wenham.

The Lowdown: GSBK backing Moyes

The Irons suffered a 2-0 defeat to Leicester City in the Premier League last weekend, meaning they have now lost their last three top-flight games on the bounce, leaving them just one point above the relegation zone.

The Scotsman has come under increased pressure in recent weeks, although club owners GSBK have since confirmed that they are fully backing their manager, despite a disappointing decline in form and results.

The Latest: Wenham’s comments

Speaking to Football Insider, Wenham claimed that West Ham supporters could be demanding a change at the helm, and he name-checked Emery after the start to life the Spaniard has made at Villa Park, winning his first two league games in the job.

The pundit said: “Another home defeat and another game without scoring. I don’t think these European wins against minnows have covered up the job Moyes is doing. I know the West Ham natives are not happy.

“They are on their podcasts and talk shows moaning and whinging. I think they have seen Villa’s revival under Emery and how they went out and got a manager of his ability through the door.

“If you look at how Emery has turned Villa around, those West Ham fans will be thinking ‘why didn’t we get him?’.

“That being said, for me, Moyes does deserve time to turn it around. It is early in the season and I’m sure if there is business in January then they will be fine.”

The Verdict: Deserves more time

The Irons have only secured four victories in 15 league games this season, but Moyes deserves more time to turn it around given his respectable track record at the London Stadium.

The Glaswegian has won 75 and drawn 35 of his 175 matches across two spells in the West Ham dugout, and he led his side to a Europa League semi-final alongside nailing down consecutive top-seven finishes.

West Ham’s first game back after the World Cup break is against league leaders Arsenal, but if they want to start climbing up the table, they must aim to spring a surprise against Mikel Arteta’s side.

Such a result could just kick-start their season and quell the disquiet over Moyes.
