Moyes Has Almost A Full Squad For Now!

Having an injury list as long as your arm, a list that in the past would have had Old 'arry bringing out his "down to the bare bones" one liner, David Moyes could be forgiven for thinking his 'second coming' was cursed. Now however the situation is much rosier, only 'lonely' Jack Wilshere remains on the long term injury list along with Ryan Fredericks because injury prone Andry Yarmolenko has returned to fitness, and is training without any new issues. New signing Tomas Soucek will be available in a fortnight so he doesn't make the dreaded 'out for a while' list, with his injury only being a mild abductor strain.

Some change from the 'bad old days', Moyes will be able to enjoy the luxury of working out who to ommit rather than who can make up the numbers! One plus point to emerge from the 'injury glut' is right back Joseph Ngakia, althoughhn still raw, the youngster has slotted in so well in the absence of Fredericks that he has made the position his own, ahead of the vastly experienced Pablo Zabaleta.

With Ben Johnson being groomed for the left back berth. the future is looking bright from a defensive point of view as David Moyes pursues his aim to manage a young and dynamic team that has more than it's fair share of talented young british players. The signing of Jarred Bowen is a prime indication of the direction moyes wants the club to travel, Bowen is NOT a Jordan Hugill type of purchase, he is one for the future, but already his presence and energy have begun to filter throughout the entire squad.

If Hammers can survive by avoiding relegation there is every poosibility that next season might finally deliver on the promise of 'attractive attacking football by a vibrant young team that has a spine of young talented British players. Let's hope so! - Asst Ed

I will be VERY disappointed if Moyes doesnt set us up with an attacking formation and that means Beast and Haller up front, lets see!
