Decision time for the club is putting more pressure on Moyes following his £150 million spending spree.
west Ham are confident that David Moyes can lead the team out of their present rut, thus they have no intentions to look for a new manager while the World Cup is in progress.
The 2-0 loss to Leicester on Saturday was the Hammers’ fourth in five Premier League matches, and they now enter the break in 16th place, one point above the relegation zone.
However, Moyes’ squad has thrived in Europe, winning all six games in the Europa Conference League group stage despite winning just four League games all season (against newly promoted Fulham and Bournemouth and against Aston Villa and Wolves while both teams were in upheaval).
Despite Moyes’ £150 million summer buying binge, many of his eight new recruits have failed to make an effect, and mounting symptoms of unrest have been seen at recent home games, culminating in the club being booed off after a loss to the Leicester City.
Therefore, Moyes is feeling the heat for the first time in his second stint as manager. The 59-year-old manager returned to the London Stadium in late 2019 and led the Irons away from a relegation fight, followed by two outstanding seasons that yielded sixth and seventh place positions in the League and a run to the Europa League semi-finals in the previous year.
As a result, West Ham’s board of directors has faith in Moyes and will allow him time to turn things around before the team’s Boxing Day match against Arsenal.
Moyes is hoping to use the World Cup break to regroup following a shaky start to the season in August, when just five Hammers players (Declan Rice, Lucas Paqueta, Thilo Kehrer, Alphonse Areola, and Nayef Aguerd) were scheduled to be in action.
