The Scot took the reigns at the London Stadium for the second time in December 2019.

West Ham barely avoided relegation last season but the signs of improvement under Moyes were clear and obvious to see.

The Scot eliminated some of the unacceptable behaviours and slowly began to address the rotten culture that had developed under his predecessor Manuel Pellegrini.

Moyes began to see the fruits of his labour at the start of this season. After losing our first two games, we have gone from strength to strength.

West Ham haven’t looked back.

Jamie Carragher lauds David Moyes

West Ham are currently sitting in sixth spot in the Premier League table. Three wins from our final three games would guarantee some kind of European football for next season.


Carragher offered high words of praise for the job that Moyes has done at the London Stadium, when writing his column for The Telegraph:

“David Moyes’ ‘old school’ reputation is unfair – his critics, including at West Ham, should admit they were wrong. The Scot has an undeserved reputation – he is one of the best British managers of the Premier League era.”

Perhaps the most impressive thing about Moyes’s tenure at West Ham is how he has managed to improve so many players.

The Scot is clearly a disciplinarian. At the same time, however, the Hammers players seem to absolutely love him.

That is a great skill to have. To be able to lead with an iron fist and command genuine respect at the same time is a truly remarkable character trait.

The West Ham owners should be bending over backwards to tie Moyes down to a new long-term deal.

Let’s hope that happens sooner rather than later. Because if it doesn’t, there will surely be a whole host of clubs queueing up for the Scot’s services.
