What is the difference between David Moyes and Sam Allardyce? Essentially, wealth, both men have been rewarded well in their football management careers for serving up 'percentage football. Principally viewing the fixture list at the beginning of the season and working out which games were winnable and which were not, then by concentrating on the winnable games they were able to attain the percentage points ration to survive and even thrive.

West Ham United's interrupted Barclays Premier League season finally grinds to a halt on Sunday the 26th of July at the Bowl of Misery with a game against fellow relegation candidates Aston Villa, by which time one or both clubs will either sink or swim, their respective fates may well be out of their hands by then anyway!

Is it David Moyes' management style? Although a bit of a dinosaur, he has always sought to promote youth players from within, so it is unlikely that is the reason, it is probably because he was 'tapped up' but in a 'legal' way.

As the Irons were 'going through the motions' as they played out the remaining minutes of their 2-0 defeat by Tottenham, apart from brushing off old copies of the A-Z for directions to obscure grounds that may well have to be visited, discussion at the Org was swiftly moving on to the inevitable media fall out that would follow.

Ahead of project restart, positive messages were emanating from the London Stadium regarding David Moyes' much vaunted squad overhaul, with particular attention devoted to signing young, fit and hungry players. The arrival of Jarrred Bowen on deadline day was hoped to be a portent for the future, alas that was not to be, as Covid-19 reared it's ugly head and the game as we knew it ceased to exist.
