Moyes' Departure Shows Typical Lack Of Style From West Ham

West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan has today confirmed that which everyone already knew, namely the departure of David Moyes from the club. However the manner and nature of the announcement shows yet again exactly why neither of the owners should be allowed to make public statements without first having them approved a 'third party' who has the power to prevent verbal outbursts that usually prove costly!

Prospective new managers will have hardly been impressed with the way the previous incumbent has been dispatched. Here are 'Sully's' final words on Moyes' departure. "When David and his team arrived, it was the wish of both parties that the focus be only on the six months until the end of the season, at which point a decision would be made with regards to the future, We feel that it is right to move in a different direction. We aim to appoint a high-calibre figure who we feel will lead the club into an exciting future for our loyal supporters within the next 10 days."

Talk about lack of respect! Moyes wasn't everyone's cup of tea but he did a good job, and to be publicly 'slighted' was not a fair and proper way for him to part company with the club, and perhaps of equal importance, Moyes' assistants Alan Irvine, Stuart Pearce and Billy McKinlay will also depart with immediate effect. In the interest of fair play we should mention that when prompted David Sullivan also said "I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to David Moyes and his staff for achieving the target of keeping West Ham United in the Premier League, throughout his time here, David has carried himself with dignity and honesty and we have all found him to be a pleasure to work with. He, Alan (Irvine), Stuart (Pearce) and Billy (McKinlay) accepted the challenge and attacked it head on, turning around a difficult situation. They deserve great respect for the job they have done and they leave the club with our best wishes."

It is anybody's guess why on earth the club have set themselves a ten day deadline for what could well be the most important decision they ever have to make!
Good hunting - Ed

Gives them plenty of time to woo pep/poch/moanrino for the job only to just miss out and gazump QPHAA for Maclaren!!.....but seriously I think they have made there minds up already and hopefully HOPEFULLY they back the new man in the transfer market because a lot of work needs to be done on the team between now and next season.

im guessing moyes had enough of the nonsense and told them to stuff it. how can you be on t.v one minute saying you hope he stays and then the next say you decided to get rid? its the usual amateur handling of important matters.

Gold says he wanted moyes to stay but it looks like he was rebuffed from mini me dildo...so it appears that sully calls the shots or maybe his sons didnt want moyesy!!
