West Ham face up to David Moyes sack decision to secure Premier League status
The Hammers are struggling could conceivably be in the Premier League’s bottom three this weekend, so is it time for Moyes to go? Vote and join the debate below…
With Leeds and Everton playing at home on Saturday, there is a very real chance West Ham could be in the bottom three when they kick off against Aston Villa this weekend.
It was not supposed to be like this. Successive top-seven finishes looked to have established the Irons as genuine Champions League challengers; European football at the very least. However, in trying to add the depth to ensure the club could maintain their league form alongside a Europa Conference League challenge, David Moyes has somehow seen the very essence of the previous two years’ success slip away.
Now, with a third of the season remaining there is a very real chance West Ham could be lining up not in the Champions League next season, but the Championship. Two wins in 13, both against struggling sides, have seen the club slide down from 10th in October to 16th today, just a point clear of the bottom three.
Saturday’s 4-0 defeat to a vibrant Brighton side drove home West Ham’s failings and appeared to be the final nail in the coffin for Moyes. He survived, mainly thanks to the credit he has built up over the previous two seasons. But if West Ham are to survive, is it time for Moyes to go?
