Manic Monday for Moyes as countdown begins after his West Ham transfer prediction

It’s just another manic Monday for David Moyes as the countdown begins after his recent West Ham transfer prediction.

If any game highlighted West Ham’s need for reinforcements at both ends of the pitch it was the 3-2 defeat to Leeds on Sunday.

The match showed West Ham need a new defender – despite Kurt Zouma’s imminent return.

And the Hammers still desperately need a different striker option when their blunt instrument Michail Antonio is not at the races.

Throw in the fact West Ham lack true strength in depth in some key areas and it is clear reinforcements are needed to make a hugely promising season an unforgettable one.

Well all eyes now are on manic Monday today, the day Moyes earmarked to be the start of two weeks of transfer window madness during which West Ham would hope to get players signed.

Manic Monday for Moyes as countdown begins after his West Ham transfer prediction

With Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky now on board as the club’s second biggest stakeholder, fans are understandably expectant regarding transfers this month.

It may have been quiet thus far. But Moyes predicted last week that today would see the start of the real deals being done in the January transfer window.

“Up to now, you would probably say there’s not been great deal of activity,” Moyes said in midweek.

“(But I) can see it changing in last week or two of window.”

After today there are exactly two weeks left of the January window.

So Moyes and West Ham have just over 14 days left to get players in having suggested offers have been made behind the scenes.

The Scot stated he believes this is when the transfer merry-go-round will grind into gear.

And West Ham fans can only hope the club is ready to pounce.

The Hammers travel to Manchester United next weekend and then have two weeks off for the winter break.

It is the FA Cup fourth round tie against Kidderminster Harriers the first game back so the next two or three weeks would be the ideal time for signings to bed in with the squad and get to know Moyes and their new West Ham teammates.

The Hammers then have a run of seriously winnable fixtures in February which could go a long way to piling the pressure on the likes of Arsenal and Spurs in the race for the top four.
