David Moyes oversees dramatic turnaround at West Ham

Incredibly, the Hammers now sit in fifth spot in the Premier League table having played 27 games.

We are two points behind fourth placed Chelsea with a game in hand.

Moyes has worked wonders since taking the West Ham job for a second time in December 2019.

We are now a proper team. Every single player bleeds for the shirt. And not one single club will want to play us now.

That in itself says all you need to know about the turnaround at the London Stadium.

Jamie Carragher praises David Moyes

West Ham have a genuine chance to finish inside the top four this season.

And Jamie Carragher suggested that David Moyes deserves so much credit for the job he has done at West Ham. He responded when asked what has been behind the Hammers’ recent success, when speaking on Sky Sports Monday Night Football last night (Monday, March 8th, 7:04 pm):

“David Moyes. When you think of a David Moyes team, you think of organisation. That’s the first thing that I think of. We’re talking about a big, powerful, strong and organised team. Consistent right throughout.”

Carragher is spot on to be fair. Moyes has worked miracles at West Ham when you think about it.

To take a club from the brink of relegation into contention for the Champions League spots just eight months later is a truly remarkable achievement.

Even if we don’t finish inside the top four, it will still have been a great season for West Ham.

If we fail in our bid for the top four, let’s hope that we manage to achieve Europa League football. It’s the very least that this West Ham team and David Moyes deserve.
