An ex-employee of West Ham has revealed that there was no emergency board meeting on Saturday night (12 November), despite widespread speculation to the contrary as pressure mounts on David Moyes.
After a 2-0 loss to Leicester at the London Stadium, the Hammers are just one point above the relegation zone as the Premier League takes a break for the World Cup.
Fans are understandably upset with the team’s recent results, but Ex wasted no time in updating his patrons on 12 November on the manager’s status, saying that Moyes would be given time to turn things around after the World Cup and that there are currently no plans to fire him.
“We can confirm that there will not be an emergency board meeting tonight (12 November), contrary to recent rumours,” he stated. We believe the board will continue to support Moyes for the time being.
“Of course, if outcomes keep going the way they are, then action will obviously have to be done, but it seems that he will be allowed until after the World Cup to attempt to turn this around.
We have no reason to believe that the board is saying one thing in public and doing another in private about these matters.
Board members have invested much in David Moyes and Rob Newman’s recruitment this summer and would want to give them more time to show their worth. Despite this, one might make the case that Paqueta and Scamacca have had a particularly rough few weeks.
Before next week’s programme, “we will send some emails out to gain greater clarification on his future,” the hosts wrote.
Is it time for you to leave?
To make matters worse for West Ham, Moyes may have earned the right to be granted time to turn things around after his strong start as manager.
Despite spending the better part of £170m on new players during the summer, the team’s performance has been dismal, particularly in the Premier League, and they are presently falling behind.
Although they cost a lot of money, the team’s new recruits have had little success so far. Some have even suggested that Moyes’s approach to the game is to blame.
There is a possibility that a new perspective and some time with the team over the next break of one month might help us find a way out of this jam.
If nothing changes, we may have trouble pulling ourselves out of this hole in 2023, when we will have less time to work with the players and less time to salvage the squad. Such a momentous choice requires careful deliberation by the board.
