The most senior West Ham board source has responded to new David Moyes sack talk as rumours swirl around the club.

West Ham resume their battle for Premier League survival this weekend when Southampton come to town.

It is a relegation six-pointer if ever there was one.

The Hammers can go as high as 13th with a win. But they could also end up bottom of the table with a defeat.

David Moyes has found himself under intense pressure with fans calling for his head for some time now.

But the Scot was was the centre of shocking claims that emerged from a first team whistleblower this week too. The claims essentially stated the players and staff have had enough of Moyes and that there is a toxic atmosphere at the club.

“It is entirely made (up) but really doesn’t help us in our present circumstances,” the source told the site.

“It’s up to each to decide what they want to believe!”

The knives have been out for Moyes for so long now that they’re starting to go blunt.

Fan frustration is completely understandable and justifiable. But it is increasingly clear the board will not be changing the manager until the summer at least.

So the collective focus must now be on survival. And getting the four wins likely needed to stay in the top flight.
