Moyes' open letter on the official site
Moyes is often accused of being spineless for coming back, and fair enough. I think he's pretty useless... But I still don't know how he works for the 3 Shits.

But his statement last night (Tues 17) strikes me as genuinely "him" and not the words of the buffoons he works for.

He doesn't say a great deal... But it is welcome, in my view, he has said at least something.

It's good to know they've found a wet wipe to "deep clean" the Rush Green portaloo. Even if it's pretty much guaranteed our fitness will be shite, whenever we next play.

Irons.

MOYES' LETTER

Hello everyone,

As West Ham United manager, I felt it was important that I spoke to you, our loyal supporters, directly, at this uniquely challenging time.

Firstly, on behalf of everyone at the Club, I would like to send my best wishes to each and every one of you.

We know that unfortunately COVID-19 is a virus that it will affect many of our lives directly over the coming days, weeks and months.

Everyone here at the Club is pulling together to support one another and of course, the national effort to delay the spread of the virus with our primary focus being the wellbeing of our colleagues, their families and of course our supporters.

We have already seen many examples throughout society of human nature at its best in the face of adversity and I encourage you all, more than ever, to look out for one another.

We will not be playing Premier League football for a period of time and we support the decision of the authorities because it is necessary at this time, and we all need to do all we can to play our part which, in the long term, could help to save lives.

While we will not play until next month at the earliest, it is my job as manager to ensure our players are physically and mentally ready to return to the pitch, as and when the Premier League decree it is right and safe to do so.

In consultation with our own expert medical staff, we have put in place special individual training and meal plans for the players, and we have been in daily contact with each and every player to check on their health and wellbeing.

Rush Green, like all other Club sites, has undergone a deep clean and we will be resuming open-air, drill-based sessions soon, with all necessary measures and precautions of course taken to ensure there is no risk to players’ health.

I would like to end as I began, by expressing my support to our supporters, all over the world, and encourage you to look out for yourselves and for each other, with particular thought given to those older or more vulnerable people in our community who might need that extra help.

At this time, the West Ham United family can come together and show its strength.

David Moyes
Manager

I see that Moysie is down with the ethnic kids with his drill-based sessions.
Who's have thought it?

Most managers or club would send the similar generic message.

I maybe nieve but generally as a rule, I do not trust managers who have manged over 6 clubs without a major trophy or success.

Everton not taking him back and choosing Carlos ( so much more expensive ), said it all about Evertons ambition and West Ham.

I want a West Ham man to manage us. Or a manager who appreciates what the club stands for. Fucking Sir Trev was proper lazy to not take up management , but look at all managers of his age and they look half dead, he still has all his hair. Moyes will be bald and 3 stone under weight if this season continued.

Moyes accepted a hospital pass when he took on the job this time: well into the season, results and league position pretty dire, the familiar problem with long-term injuries, our most expensive player looking as though he didn't care, and morale among team and fans fairly near rock bottom. True, he had no options at PL level, but having been branded a failure at Man U, he could have gone for a lower profile position with an ambitious Championship club and hoped to rebuild his career on the quiet. If he saves us this season (or we are reprieved due to the virus), I hope that he is given a chance to consolidate this time because I do think that he is capable of running a club well.

I think that David Moyes is a decent man. If he doesn't bring success to our club I will not alter my opinion.
However, I do hope he is successful and we can share in the success.

Re: Moyes' open letter on the official site
Agree it seems sincere and is what decent people communicate and shows empathy. Which is why it would never be something the 3 Fvckwits would never think of sending.

As said, seem a decent bloke, wants to do well and I hope he does but suspect he will never quite cut it in the modern game. Prove us wrong Moyesino.

"Read in isolation..." Very good, Easthammer.

I dunno. It's not much. But seeing as Brady's "sorry Liverpool" bollocks in her Sun column has been the club's ONLY statement this far, I just thought it was a decent effort. Acknowledges the unprecedented situation, but calmly focuses on reassuring fans that all that can be done at the club is being done.

I'd wager he personally asked to put this out. Not the triumvirate of assclowns. If Moyes were a decent manager... I'd probably like him. :-)

Re: Moyes' open letter on the official site
I agree with that Hermit. If they can somehow get some form of sport on the telly, even if it is behind closed doors, it will be something.

I’m really surprised that they’ve totally scrapped golf as I’d imagine that would be one of the safer sports to continue without crowds. It probably comes down to money, the lost revenue, the lost sponsors, etc. It would be huge to have some form of sport going on right now.

Re: Moyes' open letter on the official site
That is a good statement.

For the good of the nation's mental health they need to try and find a way to get sport back on telly.

Take out any at risk groups necessary to facilitate a football match and you will still be left with more than enough to make it happen behind closed doors.

Roy Hodgson might have to wear a hazmat suit but apart from that, all will be as usual and our home games wont be discernable different.

Re: Moyes' open letter on the official site
Not by me it wouldn't - I think it's well written and carries a decent message. Also the word "I" only appears 4 times amongst a number of paragraphs.

Re: Moyes' open letter on the official site
But if any of the other three had written exactly the same letter then it would be getting slagged off as being patronising.

I hate the owners by the way, but it’s all perception.

WHU(Exeter) 2:42 Wed Mar 18
Re: Moyes' open letter on the official site
It's a decent message.

Far better and easily less patronising than any similar that would come from the vile threesome who employ him.

Pagey 2:19 Wed Mar 18
Re: Moyes' open letter on the official site
It’s a generic statement that doesn’t really tell us anything but in his head it will justify his inflated and undeserved wage packet.

In this day and age of social media, we are continually fed relentless bullshit by anyone and everyone in the battle to stay relevant and massage their own ego.

As another example, those people who were posting the ‘Be Nice’ bollocks a month ago are probably currently pushing a granny out of the way to grab the last loaf of bread in Tesco. It’s just words. Pointless words.

i think Moyes is just fucking bored and fancied something to pass the time.

Re: Moyes' open letter on the official site
Bit cynical maybe but seems to me he’s just using this to try and get us all onside what with everything that’s been going on. Maybe not his words after all......

The worst thing we can do is not remain calm and completely forget life beyond this thing.

Nothing amazing but every little bit that tries to remind us of that is good.

probably the best thing he has done since he arrived.
