David Moyes spoke to reporters after last night’s 2-0 defeat to Tottenham, and claimed that he told the Premier League that he was not happy with the scheduling of the game, as quoted by Football.London.

The Hammers are in all sorts of trouble at the moment. They are sitting level on points with 18th placed Bournemouth and only one point clear of 19th placed Aston Villa, having played a game more than both sides.
West Ham have been truly awful this season.
We all know that David Sullivan, David Gold and Karren Brady are to blame.
None of us wanted to leave Upton Park in 2016. But we were sold a dream based on lies and it has inevitably turned into a nightmare.
David Moyes returning as manager in December 2019 sums up the current ownership perfectly. He was extremely unpopular during his first stint at the London Stadium.
So why on earth would the Sullivan and Gold think that the Scot was the right man for the job this time?
Winning is what I do…ok then
Moyes has won just two out of a possible 12 Premier League games since returning as Hammers boss. He is totally out of his depth at elite level football. The 57-year-old is finished.
But unfortunately, he will be our manager for at least up until the end of the season.
The issues at West Ham are clear to see. Yet Moyes chose to blame the Premier League for scheduling last night’s game so close to Saturday’s defeat to Wolves, as quoted by Football.London:
“I told the Premier League when we came back, us and Tottenham don’t play for ten days. We are not in the cup so why can’t we play Wednesday or Thursday night. We might have had people fit later on but I think it was a terrible decision by the Premier League and I think the broadcasters would have helped out. An extra day for footballers, at this level, is so important.”
This doesn’t ring true though. This is a man who also made just two of his allotted five substitutions last night.
If the West Ham owners had any ambition or love for the club’s fans they would sack Moyes this morning.
But they won’t. They won’t want to pay him out for the final year of his contract. And they will view him as a decent Championship manager for when the inevitable happens.
We are a club heading for rock bottom fast. And Moyes will be powerless to prevent that.
