Fans worried about trouble behind the scenes at West Ham after insiders with links to owners launch strange poll

Some West Ham United fans are worried there may be trouble behind the scenes at the club.

Who is striker with superb scoring record being linked to West Ham?

Supporters were expecting news of David Moyes signing a new three-year deal after the season ended on a high with Europa League qualification.

But as yet no news has been forthcoming.

Moyes once again insisted West Ham must completely overhaul their recruitment and have a ‘more professional ethic’ in an interview with The Daily Mail at the weekend.

Conflicting reports over transfers and recruitment, rumours Sullivan’s son will be new DOF, Moyes contract delay and website’s strange poll making Hammers fans paranoid

But there have been conflicting reports as to whether co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold will satisfy Moyes’s demands.

Meanwhile West Ham insiders Claret and Hugh have launched a poll asking whether Moyes is the right man to take the club forward.

Claret and Hugh have been criticised in the past for apparent links to the board by some West Ham fans.

But they also bring supporters information via those links which they cannot get elsewhere. So it is a double edged sword.

Now some supporters have hit out on social media suggesting the strange poll – after West Ham’s record Premier League season – points towards problems behind the scenes.

No hard evidence to suggest Moyes is unhappy but West Ham losing Scot is unthinkable

Some have suggested the delay could be the result of Moyes being unhappy with plans behind the scenes to instal Sullivan’s son Jack as West Ham’s new director of football after he left a similar post with the women’s team.

It is unthinkable that West Ham might lose Moyes.

And it would be the final nail in the coffin for Sullivan and Gold with supporters.

There is no hard evidence to suggest Moyes is unhappy beyond the lack of a new contract announcement.

That was not expected until this week anyway.
