The old adages and oxymoron phrases will keep on coming thick and fast IF Hammers persist in their David Moyes 'blind faith' journey, there is simply no visible light at the end of a very long tunnel and action needs to be taken now! This is NOT a knee jerk reaction to the club's exit from the 'useless' cup as t is known in 'soccer's' inner circle, well most of the new breed of owners call it soccer now don't they?
No this lies far deeper than being beaten on penalties by a lower league side, albeit one that has actually WON the PREMIER LEAGUE, no this article relates to a mindset that once served the club and the team so well, so well that teams now know exactly just how to set up against a David Moyes team that all the previous success over the last couple of years is slowly unravelling, due mainly to the fact that Hammers are currently a 'one trick' managerial pony!
David Moyes's reluctance to change his tactics is really hurting the club on so many levels, again we refer to the departures of Alan Irvine and Stuart Pearce as 'watershed' departures, their true importance, including Psycho's unique 'eye in the sky' perspective are sorely missing. Perhaps the club might have done more to facilitate their staying, in a similar way as they could have handled the want away Craig Dawson situation?
Viewers will note a distinct absence of a board supports the manager in today's press round ups, because there IS a distinct possibility while David Moyes is arranging World Cup friendlies for the players not off to the 'gay hunters footy wash' the club are preparing their own trial without jury for a certain Scotsman. Moyes' pay off costs are not great, especially as he only has a couple of his 'own staff' with him now.
There has been a lot of 'in the background ' movement surrounding the club recently right through it's infrastructure, it is as if there are plans for a relatively clean sweep, so don't be surprised if Saturday's game against Leicester is Moyes' last in full charge! - Ed
