Let’s give David Moyes some credit
All the crap he is putting up with and doing well.
Great displays against Arsenal and Wolves.
Good end to last season to keep us up.

Happy days enjoy it!

Glad that you are 'slowly warming' to our best team in 35 years...... I really hope Moyes appreciates it.

Never thought I would say this at the beginning of the season but if we don’t get top 6 I will be disappointed

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
Massive credit today, I would imagine everyone is happy with him.

I was one of his critics for the Liverpool game, just goes to show it wasn't all out attacking we desired but to try and be competitive and go out in a positive frame of mind which we did.

So credit where it's due.

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
Moyes said today that it's in his contract that if we finish 13th or above there's a clause that makes it his decision on whether to extend his contract.

Interestingly, he also said that managers contracts mean nothing nowadays, so he's not worried either way.

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
fwiw, i'm slowly warming to Moyes. I wasn't best pleased when he was appointed again, but i have to admit the fella is doing a pretty good job at the moment.
Last saturday i was 70 yrs old and for the team to stuff the totts on sunday was the best birthday present ever.

enough said, now i'm off to tuck into a large slice of humble pie. COYI !!!.

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
I ended up listening to Athletico Madrid v Chelsea on the radio last night. The commentary team were raving about how good Athletico were and the defensive setup. The description reminded me of how we are playing so I switched on and watched the rest of the match.

I don’t know if the first 20 mins was Madrid’s peak but I wasn’t overly impressed. Chelsea were much the better side. It did however make me think that Madrid are very much a poor mans West Ham (on that showing!)

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
It all comes down to having the right type of players. Next to that is confidence. What Moyes have done that earlier managers haven't, is impossible to say really.
Nevertheless, he has done very well and deserves a contract renewal.

It is a point that doesn’t get nearly enough attention.

Having two effective midfielders instead of one effective midfielder and a slow bloke chasing shadows for 90 mins is bound to have a drastic impact on any team.

We have carried the water carrier for years, which defeats the purpose of having a water carrier in the first place.

What I like about Moyes at the moment he still thinks we have not played our best

Don't bend the truth. Nobody said they thought he wasn't good enough for us. Plenty had very well placed concern about him returning and the continuance of the work he did the first time round which was pretty average at best.

Nobody thought or said we were too good for Moyes. It was concerns based on his performance from his first tenure.

How many West Ham fans do you know that have a lofty and mis-guided snobbery about the club? Yes, exactly. None.

Don't be so dramatic.

LAF 12:54 Mon Feb 22
Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
I said elsewhere yesterday how impressed I was with his gestures from the sidelines, urging the team to get forward against Spurs. That image really contradicted the impression of him being dour and negative.
I have also said recently that a lot on here demonstrated arrogance to think Moyes wasn’t good enough for us. What the hell have we done in the last couple of decades to assume this view of ourselves?
Anyway, an earlier post rightly said that , after getting the majority of decisions right, one misstep this season was the Liverpool game - and Moyes admitted as much post-match. It will be interesting, therefore, how he sets the team up to face City next game.

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
I suspect this period may be Moyes biggest achievement of his managerial career. Despite the failures of recent years he was an outstanding manager for Everton. But that took a long time. What he's pulled off at West Ham inside 14 months is astonishing.

With WBA going down and us doing well let's say fine...


Be careful what you wish for!

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
“Unable to attract good players” is a bit of an exaggeration, but you know what I mean. There are plenty of players who would have refused to join a relegation scrap.

Second-spell David Moyes has the best win % of any non-caretaker manager of West Ham United (44.23%).

First-spell David Moyes had the second-worst win % of any non-caretaker manager of West Ham United (29.03%).“



Geep, this is why I said it was bullshit judging Moyes in the seasons when he was trying to save us from relegation. He was inheriting someone else’s failing squad, whichnwas out of form and probably demoralised. No preseason to drill and organise them. Unable to spend much money or attract good players to a relegation scrap. We should never have expected anything more than avoiding relegation.

While that 44% is good, it gets better if you exclude last season when he was trying to avoid relegation again. This season, his first full one, has a win ratio of almost 60%.

jfk, I get the impression that if Jennifer Anniston walked into Ganks bedroom begging to be fucked he'd ask her "what's this got to do with West Ham"? Before returning his attention to his Panini stickers album.

Any old iron
It’s critical we keep Moyes he’s doing a fantastic job.
Gank,
Are you being serious?

Re: Let’s give David Moyes some credit
It's not all that impressive. All he had to do was drop Noble and suddenly we're better. Any of our previous managers could have done that.
