Have we seen the last of David Moyes at the London Stadium as West Ham gear up for three away games on the spin.
As Moyes trudged down the tunnel following the 2-0 defeat to Brentford the writing appeared to be on the wall.
Speculation had abound during the build-up that West Ham would sack the Scot if he failed to oversee a victory in a “must-win” game.
But despite internet and social media tittle tattle that he had been shown the door last night, Moyes remains in charge.
At the moment it is difficult to see a way out of the mess West Ham find themselves in.
The team just cannot buy a goal and has become worryingly leaky up the other end.
There is of course increased pressure on West Ham’s owners and manager against the backdrop of the big summer splurge in the transfer market.
The Hammers have never spent well when going big in the transfer market. Nearly all of West Ham’s transfer success stories in modern history are cheap buys from the lower leagues who have a point to prove.
So perhaps we shouldn’t be too surprised at the team’s struggles after an unprecedented £170m outlay in the summer.
All eyes now turn to what looks another tough one – Leeds away.
Leeds have struggled too but looked good as they took the game to Man City in a defeat before holding high-flying Newcastle to a 0-0 draw.
A win could change the whole atmosphere and mindset and will actually lift West Ham above Leeds.
Losing doesn’t bear thinking about and begs the question.
Have we seen the last of David Moyes at the London Stadium as West Ham gear up for three away games on the spin?
If Moyes was supposedly fighting for his job before the Arsenal defeat, then he is almost certainly under pressure after the loss to Brentford.
After a trip to Elland Road, West Ham are away to Brentford again in the FA Cup before a third away game on the bounce at Wolves.
West Ham will not be back at the London Stadium again until the 21st of January. Three days is a long time in football – especially given the situation the Hammers and Moyes find themselves in – let alone three week.
It is clear if Moyes does not get some results on the board soon then we may well have seen the last of him at the London Stadium given the three weeks the team are about to spend on the road.
