West Ham boss David Moyes outlined what he expects from the club’s board, when speaking exclusively to WHUFC.com yesterday.
The Hammers have been flying since the start of the season. We have taken eight points from a very challenging opening six fixtures.
And things are looking bright at the London Stadium.
Many West Ham fans are still not happy with the way in which the club has been run over the past few years, however.
We did sign Said Benrahma on transfer deadline day. But bringing the Algerian to east London wasn’t nearly enough. We have been left short in multiple positions.
In spite of that, Moyes still chose to praise David Sullivan and David Gold for how they have supported him during his time in charge of West Ham, when speaking to WHUFC.com:
“Well, first and foremost you want trust, you want them to be really supportive and to listen. So you want owners who understand. We don’t want owners who get too high when you win or too low when you lose. You need people to be pretty neutral. More importantly you need the backing and support. At the moment I have had really good backing and support from the people at the club. They are helping me. And they want me to help the club. Hopefully we can do that.”
Moyes could, of course, just be saying these things to keep his bosses sweet.
In fact, there is a very good chance that that is in fact what he is doing.
Let’s just hope that the West Ham boss is backed in future by Sullivan and Gold. The Scot deserves the chance to prove that he has what it takes to guide the Hammers towards a new era of success.
Whether he is given the time, however, remains to be seen.
