David Moyes spoke to reporters today, and shared what he told his West Ham players after their disappointing defeat to Tottenham last week, as quoted by WHUFC.com.

And the Scot’s remarks will not fill Hammers fans with much optimism.

Moyes told reporters how his West Ham team is in desperate need of some luck, as quoted by the club’s official website:

“The Tottenham game was our second-best in terms of physical stats. We played a really good Tottenham team. Sometimes things just get passed over. I said to the players immediately after the game that I thought they worked incredible hard against Tottenham. I said to players after that game that we need to change our luck. The saying in life is ‘the harder you work, the more luck you get.’ That’s the way we’re looking at it.”
Now let’s be honest. No Premier League boss should be placing so much emphasis on luck.
It is a sign of a truly desperate manager. And Moyes is clearly flustered. He is no longer fit to manage a top Premier League club. Elite level football and management has passed the 57-year-old by.

And West Ham are suffering because of Moyes’s ancient approach to tactics and in-game management.

The Hammers face Chelsea at the London Stadium tomorrow night. And defeat against Frank Lampard’s side would put Moyes’s men in even more trouble.
There is no way that West Ham should be where they are in the league with their squad.
In a way, it highlights just how inept Moyes is as a manager. After a reasonably successful spell in charge of Everton, he failed at Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland.
And now he’s doing the same at West Ham.
The only luck the Hammers need is for the owners to see sense and sack the Scot before it’s too late.
