David Moyes is the manager of West Ham United and there’s nothing we can do about it.
The last 48 hours have been very difficult to take but how many of you can say you’re surprised. We’re back in familiar territory, in the bottom three and fighting for our Premier League status, but this time it hurts more.
David Gold and David Sullivan sold us the dream when announcing they wanted to to move from the Boleyn Ground to London Stadium. What we’ve got instead is a ground half-fit for purpose, a bunch of players who don’t seem to care much for the football club and a new manager with a reputation in tatters.
The appointment of David Moyes has to be one of the least inspiring things the club’s owners could have done in this situation. During a period of uncertainty, discontent and turmoil, Gold and Sullivan needed to bring a manger who would instil confidence and belief in to both the fans and the players.
David Moyes should never have been on that list, but here we are with the Scot in charge until the end of the season at the very least.
Before the appointment, our founder and editor-in-chief James Jones joined Ian Wright, Andy Brassell, Andy Townsend and Kelly Cates on BBC 5 Live Sport to discuss the situation at West Ham, why it’s all gone wrong and how uninspiring the Moyes appointment is.
