Devil Or The Deep Blue Sea? Moyes Or Allardyce

With just seven games remaining of the restarted Barclays Premier League, many Hammers fans are starting to panic! Had it not been for other results going in the team's favour, the Irons would have been in the bottom three by now, as it is they are only surviving by the narrowest of goal differences.

Which ever way you look at it David Moyes' 'second coming' has not panned out the way he, or the club had intended, his current win ratio WILL see the club relegated. Some will say that he inherited an over paid and bloated squad, but no one forced him to take the job on, perhaps he underestimated just how 'lax' the squad had become under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini, is this why Moyes has failed to make an impression this time? Or is it maybe his back room staff?

There is an old adage that goes along the lines of 'be careful with how you treat people on the way up, because you are sure as hell going to meet them on the way down!' When he replaced Slaven Billic, the first time Moyes took over at West Ham he concentrated on fitness, he was abley abetted by Stuart Pearce on the training pitch and during games. The sight of an agitated 'Pyscho' Pearce on the touch line, temple throbbing and spouting out 'encouragement', was enough to inspire players to go the extra mile.

Following the potential arrival of Pellegrini, Pearce was informed that his services would no longer be required, the rest of the back room staff were also informed that they would not get new contracts. Pearce went back to his 'day job' as a pundit, during one Talk Sport broadcast he made certain honest observations as to how the club was being run by David Sullivan and the rest of the Hammers' hierarchy.

Not known for their forgiving natures, the 'two David's' marked Psycho's card, so when David Moyes was re-appointed as manager and asked for Stuart Pearce to rejoin his back room staff, he was promptly told that Pearce was a persona non grata' as far as they and the club were concerned, with end result being Kevin Nolan instead! Now 'Chicken Kiev' was never known for his dedication to fitness, it is fair to say that he also had a propensity to either get injured or suspended just in time for the Christmas festivities, he may have played well for the club during his tenure as a player, but as an assistant to the manager?

So essentially, bringing David Moyes back may have been a mistake, bringing Kevin Nolan was a mistake, NOT bringing Stuart Pearce back was most definitely a mistake, so what other big mistake is waiting to happen? Well, 'the elephant in the room', and we are sure he has been called a lot worse in his life, is Sam Allardyce!

Big Sam has never been relegated from the Premier League, but even he will have difficulty in keeping the sinking ship afloat with so few games remaining. We are of the opinion Moyes will get the club relegated, Big Sam might just possibly drag the club from the jaws of relegation, but as we have recently seen, going backwards to go forwards doesn't always work. What's it to be, Sink or swim? The Devil or the Deep Blue Sea ? - Ed

By his side has definitely made a difference for moyes...also I totally forgot about chicken kev being back with us! Hes having about as much impact as julian dicks alongside Slav!! As for Allerdici,as bizarre as our club is I reckon he would take great pleasure in telling the dildos to insert love eggs in themselves!!

sorry but Moyes or Allardyce - there's no real difference in approach. if anything Moyes is slightly more flexible. I see no point or improvement in sacking Moyes and appointing allardyce unless its with a view to coming back up again ala Allardyce style. in which case kiss goodbye to any decent youngsters and prepare to have old has beens.

There is no one on this earth,could come along,look at the team and the stats,and feel they could stop us from the drop,Moyes,Sugo and all of us are going to have to watch this painful run in and hope for the best.As we know if it wasnt for the poor run of the teams around us also,we would be gone now,this has been looming for years,and im afraid to say my old chums,this could be the one.
