Let’s give David Moyes some credit
In Moyes We Trust....

He’s taken over a team with terrible holes left by Pellegrini... and he’s going to save us from relegation. AGAIN.

He’s a good manager, a good man and he will improve us.

The doubters will be proved wrong.

It seems that way doesn't it?

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
He found a role and a groove at Everton. He failed at Manchester United as he couldn't manage high profile players or make hard decisions; He failed at Real Sociedad and Sunderland with far less pressure.
He seems to have found his level with the Dildo's but their aspirations and those of the clubs fans are totally different.
He doesn't deserve any credit for what he has done here. The teams around us were dire and 19 points from 20 games is hardly earth moving.

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
So all in he delivered 20 points from 19 games.
In the end it was good enough but largely underwhelming.

With little investment & Moyes in charge I expect another below par season, but maybe low expectations are a good starting point.

We'll be better off with Moyes in charge on 12 Sept, than Pellegrini.


FACTAMUNDO

We'll still struggle down the bottom half though, unless they buy all Soucek's mates on the cheap.

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
In a post lockdown league table we finished 10th.

I'd say that was a bit of an achievement seeing we were in absolute freefall and bankers to go down in the last days of Pellegrini.

I swear some cunts on here just want some Johnny Foreigner in charge cos their name sounds EXOTIC.

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
Moyes wouldn't be on most of our wish lists for a manager including mine but these words he spoke to the Standard ring true -

“...if you’re continually going to chop and change, that will always happen. Anyone who knows anything about football would surely say, ‘This is a club that could do with a period of stability.’”

I think we should give him a chance by supporting him because he's right. Changes managers and direction every few years has done nothing for WH.

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
If you look at the last 5 games, the 4 teams who were fighting relegation all had better form than the no hope Norwich and the 4 clubs above who were pretty much safe:

WHU - 8 pts
Villa - 8 pts
Bournemouth - 7 pts
Watford - 6 pts

Norwich - 0 pts
Palace - 1 pt
Newcastle - 1 pt
Brighton - 5 pts
Everton - 5 pts

That would suggest that clubs do put in more effort when they're desperate but still have hopes of survival, regardless of the manager.

“And then i would say beyond that we came close to looking like an organised half decent side. And that was because we were close to going down.”

Is that how it works then? Teams close to going down suddenly improve without explanation?

"we stayed up despite the ginger fraud, not because of him."

Spot on.

Great start against Bournemouth and navigated Gillingham in the cup and then went on a run of 1 win in 9. Picking up a total of 5 points from a possible 27 and got tonked out the cup by WBA.

It's fucking turgid.

We beat Soton and then got beat in the next 3 until the miracle result against Chelsea. And then i would say beyond that we came close to looking like an organised half decent side. And that was because we were close to going down.

I give credit to him for the way we played in our last several games and he got the players fighting. But why only when they look doomed?

In total here are his stats in PL:

Played 19
Won 5
Drew 5
Lost 9
Win % 26.32

"Winning, its what I do"

Yes Dave. But obviously only 1 in 4.

Positives are Bowen and Soucek. Revival of Antonio after injury. Emergence of Johnson.

Negatives are we are stuck with him now as apparently he has 'done enough' to warrant longer. If that's the next level then I would hate to see the level below.

I hope the bloke succeeds. I like him. And he looks like he has a good relationship with the players. But its so obvious he is limited in his coaching.

Hope his stats are much much better next season.

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
we stayed up despite the ginger fraud, not because of him.
we stayed up because there was 3 teams even worse than us. if watford and Bournmouth had won another game each then we'n have been down and i dont see it being any better for us next season if that waste of space is still in charge.
what we really need is moyes and the bullshitters out of our club , otherwise we'll still be getting nowhere good at this level and could well be another Leeds and be lower level for nigh on twenty years, just like them..

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
You're correct of course Sir Alf but our job is to support. Not to be spotting talented maangers from other leagues or countries before they become successful and get promoted.

That's a job for forward thinking, smart owners rather than the elderly barrow boys we have running the club...

Sir Alf 7:58 Fri Jul 31
Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
I know its a tad academic because Moyes is the Dildo boys choice to start the next season but what other names are suggested that we know will come to the club and work for our high integrity, as honest as the day is long owners ? This manager will be younger, have a track record of instilling a philosophy and system through all the teams, bringing the youth players through etc... and play an attacking, expansive, "on the front foot" style? He would also have been successful doing the above on a budget and to top that his personality would be acceptable to our fans ( not dour, not arrogant, doesnt eat fish heads etc.., is not from north of Watford )? Would he need to have West Ham connections? That sometimes gets you a free pass.

Any names from the Championship? Or Jonny Foreigners?

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
Moyes is a winner Chill. How dare you disrespect someone with his record -

"As a manager, he took Preston North End to Football League Second Division win in 1999-2000 and won FA Community Shield for Manchester United in 2013."

Not watched much of Everton under Moyes then?

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
I agree with Camel.

Moysies record is a successful one, I can't be bothered to look it up but his Everton teams won their fair share. Plus they played attacking football and were good to watch.

Every coach has some level of failure on his record, John Lyall, Jose Mourinho etc, nobody is perfect.

When he took over we were lost and shot of confidence, he brought in a couple of quality players, benched the ones who didn't have the fight in 'em and hot the best out of his players. Ogbonna, Antonio Declan, Soucek, Bowen. I remember how well Arnie played for us under Moyes, so Ayers react positively to him, which is a sign of a good coach.

I wouldn't be surprised to see some humble pie being served on this thread next season.

goose 2:54 Fri Jul 31
Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
Camel you don’t fail to surprise me with the rubbish you post.
Moyes took over the PL champions & made them considerably worse.
Pellegrini was busy winning the league at Man City that very same season.

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
If its true that we are not going to buy anyone until we sell players (meaning most the best players we want will get deals elsewhere by the time we do).

Then next season 16th place will be an outstanding achievement.
