West Ham manager David Moyes has the full backing of the club’s board despite a slow start to the Premier League season.
The Hammers sit 18th in the table taking just four points from their opening seven games and are the second lowest scorers in the league.
Pressure is beginning to grow on Moyes after he spent big in the summer but his position as boss is 100% safe for now.
West Ham boss David Moyes is trusted by the Hammers’ board to turn results around after a bad opening to the season.
The Irons have won all four Conference League matches but just one in the league and performances have been poor despite some tough fixtures.
The display and loss away at Everton has caused concern amongst the fan base.
However, one West Ham source claims those in charge believe there is no better man to turn things around than Moyes.
They think he has earned time at West Ham after the successes of the last two seasons.
Moyes’ job will only be at risk if the club finds themselves in a relegation battle, then West Ham will consider their options.
What needs to change? Fans have been calling for new players to be given more of a chance such as Flynn Downes and Maxwel Cornet – they have both impressed in brief cameos.
There has also been noisy shouts to use Lucas Paqueta differently following his summer transfer from Lyon – he could be better off in a deeper role alongside Downes and Declan Rice to help progress the ball.
Supporters additionally want Moyes to drop out of form ‘favourites’ like Tomas Soucek and even Jarrod Bowen.
Said Benrahma has been one of few bright sparks this season and he deserves more time on the pitch, according to many.
West Ham are back in action after the international break and face fellow bad starters Wolves. This is followed by games against Fulham, Anderlecht and Southampton. If there isn’t significant improvement in these fixtures Moyes could then be in trouble.
