David Moyes returned to the London Stadium as manager of West Ham at the end of December.

The club’s owners made the decision to sack Manuel Pellegrini and re-hire Moyes in the hope that the Scot would guide the Hammers away from relegation trouble.

That hasn’t happened, however.

West Ham have won just two of the 10 Premier League games that Moyes has overseen.

They currently sit in 16th spot in the Premier League table.

If the Hammers do stay up, Moyes will most likely be given another year in charge at the London Stadium at the very least.

And he will obviously then have to look at bolstering his squad in the summer.

The problem for Moyes, however, if he is still in charge, will be that West Ham have only one recognised chief scout (Football.London).

Well known Hammers insiders Claret and Hugh also back this up.

And C&H claims that Moyes is keen to get the current scouting situation sorted out as a matter of priority.

If the former Everton and Manchester United boss is expected to bring the right kind of player into the club, he needs help with regards to scouting. He absolutely cannot be expected to work with one hand tied behind his back.

Everything is up in the air at the moment, however, due to Covid-19.

Today the Premier League announced that the season has once again been postponed until April 30th.

When action eventually does resume, West Ham still have a lot of hard work to do if they are to avoid relegation. They are more than capable of staying up, however, considering the amount of quality that Moyes has at his disposal.

And it seems as though the Scot wants a plan in place for the future too, rather than just for the here and now.
