Denial is a part of our make up as human beings, without it we would never 'soldier on' regardless on many occasions, recognising denial is in itself an achievement as many people muddle on oblivious to the obvious and seem quite content with their lot in life. The sports wash that is about to begin in Qatar might move the emphasis of what is going on domestically for a little while, but sooner or later certain home truths WILL come home to roost it is a question of when not if.
The Irons board are currently stuck between a rock and a hard place but must know that ultimately they HAVE to step out from the back ground and put a new manager at the helm of the club in situ, their loyalty to current manage David Moyes is to be applauded especially in today's cut throat Premier League, but football IS a different beast now than what it was and is constantly evolving.
David Moyes has worked wonders at West Ham during BOTH of his spells in charge, but the 'brownie points' that he has earned are being eroded by an appalling run of results domestically that has only yielded 14 wins out of 42 games! a one in three win ration is NOT what the club needs. Many are saying the club's relative success in Europe has actually masked the club's slip into Domestic relegation candidates, something has to change, but what?
If one accepts that David Moyes will still be in charge after the World Cup farce ends, how long will he be given before he gets the tin tack? Brendan Rogers was in a similar predicament only a few weeks ago and now it is all smiles at Leicester, the issue is that David Moyes seems far better suited to working with 'seasoned' players who have trodden a full and varied path to the Premier League as opposed to ready made super stars.
Moyes currently has at his disposal a squad of superb players and yet he doesn't seem able or willing to utilise their undoubted talents, is it because he simply can't or is he just so stubborn that it is his way or the highway? At the Org we are of the opinion that Moyes HAS run his course as manager and IF the club can find a suitable replacement then it should hasten his departure rather than wait until the inevitable.
Moyes might indeed turn things round after the Qatar wash cup, but it is highly unlikely that he will be willing to change a style of play that he has utilised virtually ALL of his managerial career, safe and sound but not enough to keep fans happy, the natives are getting restless, but who would they like as Moyes's replacement and more importantly who would want to come? - Ed
