Ally McCoist cites West Ham United’s poor performance as being caused by a lack of games.
West Ham United’s underwhelming start to the season, according to Ally McCoist, may have something to do with the overabundance of fixtures.
The Hammers have just one victory in their last seven games, and they have only scored three goals overall. They are presently 18th in the Premier League.
McCoist, however, thinks that David Moyes and his players are having a difficult time as a result of their involvement in the Europa Conference League.
McCoist remarked [20 September] on talkSPORT Breakfast that “I truly do think there’s an aspect of the Thursday/Sunday and it’s really tough for teams.”
Although it’s difficult for clubs like West Ham, I can understand David Moyes’ displeasure with the performance.

“You may provide an explanation about travelling throughout Europe and other things, but there’s no denying that they need to perform at a higher level as well.
He is correct in saying that both sides played poorly in the first half, with Everton just marginally outperforming the other club.
After the international break, something absolutely has to click for Moyes because the Hammers’ opening seven games have been a major reason for concern.
Their performances in Europe have been strong, but the competition they are up against is of a far lower calibre than what they are used to in the Premier League.
Since Neal Maupay’s second-half goal gave the Toffees a crucial three points, Moyes has been candid in his appraisal of their present performance, claiming that their Everton effort was “not good enough.”
The Hammers have travelled frequently lately, but Moyes spent roughly £150 million during the summer transfer window to strengthen his team.
The London Stadium will need some time for his new additions to settle in, so the Scot needs a chance to turn things around. In order to ease the mounting pressure on Moyes, West Ham’s more seasoned players like Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek must perform better in the upcoming weeks.
