In light of the recent speculation about his future with the club, all West Ham supporters owe it to David Moyes to read the following line from Mark Noble’s book.
Moyes has done amazing things for West Ham, but it seems like the Hammers’ support for the Scotsman is dwindling.
As soon as a manager’s future is called into doubt due to bad performances and results, the media vultures will swoop in and the supporters will turn against the team.
The West Ham board is standing by its manager for the time being, and they are giving David Moyes until after the World Cup to turn things around.
The pressure will increase, though, since there is already discussion among insiders of points vs. games objectives.
Not only are Moyes’ West Ham United team only two spots and one point above the relegation zone as we enter the break, but Moyes is also under pressure from the fans.
Fans have lost patience with his style after seeing him lead the team to only 13 victories in the past 42 Premier League games and 12 goals all season.
Reports have surfaced claiming that West Ham need a new leader to replace Moyes in the locker room.
In light of the mounting speculation about his future, all West Ham supporters owe it to David Moyes to read the following section from Mark Noble’s book.
In his recently published memoirs Boleyn Boy, Noble speaks highly of the management.
Noble writes, “The Premier League is harsh.”
“There’s no hiding spot and David was never hesitant to dig a player out.
I’ve never seen anybody better than him at getting his point through in the locker room. If you weren’t doing your job, he’d tell you how it is, straight to your face, but he’d never take it personally.
His man-management skills were unmatched, and his actions were always done with the team’s best interests in mind. David’s forthrightness was a welcome change of pace for West Ham.
In recent history, Brendan Rodgers is one of the few managers that have been written off and predicted for the sack before turning things around.
Many people are sceptical. After the Premier League’s hiatus, we hope Moyes has the same success with West Ham.
