Irons Move To 'Firm UP' Moyes

David Moyes's managerial contract was always up for 'review' at the end of the season, and nothing has changed in that respect. It is common knowledge that was a clause added to his contract on his return to the London Stadium which was 'place dependent', essentially if the club finished eighth or above he would have to be offered a one year extension to his tenure.

Obviously Moyes has far exceeded his points target already, so renewing his deal is simple, isn't it? Moyes was unceremoniously 'dumped' by the club after he had saved it from relegation the FIRST time, he was ditched to make way for Manuel Pellegrini, who the club lavished vast amounts of money on, in an attempt at reaching the Champions League.

The irony would not have been lost on Moyes as he was re-appointed in order to rescue the club from relegation for the SECOND time, and to try and rectify the damage caused by his predecessor. Moyes has proved to be better than anyone dared hope for on his return, he has the same swagger about him now as once had when he was the manager of Everton.

All the well-deserved accolades, including winning the London football award for best manager, are wonderful, however there is a certain amount of insecurity building up ahead of Moyes extending his contract. Because as a result of the club's quite surreal change from relegation fodder to Champions League contenders, Moyes has become hot property.

His name was in the frame for the Celtic managerial vacancy, but more recently he has been 'whispered' about by several clubs, humorously one of them being none other than dear old 'Tottingham'. Laughing aside, Moyes's stock has risen significantly and it is no surprise that he has 'become of interest' to other clubs.

Certain assurances discussed in principal on Moyes's return will now have to be turned in to reality, otherwise he could well be 'poached' by clubs that CAN offer him the necessary resources, even in these Covid-19 fiscally affected times. Moyes has proved 99% of the doubters wrong, and has finally started to be seen as the manager he is, a builder and a motivator. If GSB mess up the renewal of his contract, they might as well order themselves a taxi! - Ed

Not another season of Moyes tedious football, dubious substitutions due to cowardly team selections.

I just try to get you to bite?. Just like many of you who didn't like Allardyce, irrespective of his football style, I don't like Moyes. I'd go so far as to say his football is no better, no worse, so while appreciating that Moyes took over a superior team to the one Allardyce inherited and we are now in a better league position, in doesn't detract from my above comment about his team selections and tactics which many of you have openly agreed with in other posts. No. I don't try to troll for bites. Like you all, I have an opinion. Sorry it doesn't match yours

About moyes decisions that I dont agree with & actually when we play too defensive it is a tad boring but the table doesnt lie hes done an amazing job for someone that was a temporary fix not once but twice!!I've said before since the great Johnny lyall imo every manager starts with a clean sheet,but youve always had a fascination with Sam & sorry imo that's bizarre

Finished the day he left. You lot are the ones who keep bringing into a debate a man I'm not even discussing. My current debates are that I can't stand Moyes brand of football, never have liked him since Everton and his appalling track record at Utd, Sunderland and Sociedad back me up. As for saving us the first time round, that was more luck than judgement. 8 wins from 27 games is the worst track record of ANY West Ham manager since Hammers were formed. Indeed, on his second return after Pellegrini he only managed a return of 20 points from 19 games. One more than Pellegrini had previously managed who was sacked. Work that one out.

As i have said in an earlier post,you have to give Moyes credit,forget Sunderland and the rest,they are all different clubs with different circumstances,Moyes this time has come back,and used what he has in front of him,i havent agreed with him all the time,but he has got the best out of the players,and its worked,the league position says it all,i think he is a good manager,and i think he will take us forward,he is also adaptable,which is also another plus,which is needed with the owners we have.

How about bringing "The Special One" to manage? Then we can have a bet as to how many days / weeks/ months/ matches that he would last before being shown the door.
