Moyes
Re-posting comments I made a while ago. Moyes has done an outstanding job in very difficult circumstances.

Many on here are too focussed on football tactics/management and ignore qualities of leadership. It is very clear to me that every player in the squad has immense respect for Moyes and this accounts for the massive improvement in team spirit. So what accounts for this? Well several things. Firstly, during the first lockdown Moyes quietly set about volunteering to deliver food to vulnerable people without seeking a load of publicity. The players were very impressed by this. Secondly, he obviously listens to the players as evidenced by his willingness to rapidly offload prima donnas like Anderson and Haller. Conversely his acquistions have been sound and also influenced by the players - do any of you think we would have signed Coufal if he had not listened to Soucek. Thirdly, he is honest - for example when he has not defended VAR decisions in our favour when they have been unjust.

Many of you will not recall the England World Cup winning team - a team of generally average players with a couple or so world class individuals inc Moore, Banks and Charlton of course. As Leicester have proved you do not have to have top class players to win the title. And it's not just about the football but as much about the calibre of the character at the helm.

If you're so happy then think of the happiness of the poor souls who have to endure your company and have a fucking bath. I bet you reek, tramp.

Re: Moyes
Can't take any post from Manuel seriously... After all he predicted we would finish the season 19th
As for ChillTheKunt he's just anti West Ham and the most miserable prick on the planet and can't admit 100% wrong over Moyes

Agree. I saw a player who's game just wasn't suited to our system, rather than a problem player or trouble maker. He's not a player who is going to make those runs into spaces all day like Antonio or Bowen, which is what we need our forwards to do. He's clearly more suited to a side that spends more time in possession and in the opposition half, with team mates close to him.

Poor player acquisition rather than anything else. Which was a bit of a running theme under the last manager, sadly.

Moyes has done a good job of marginalising the players who can't or won't play his way, and even (sadly) those that will try, do have some good qualities but just aren't going to get game time (Snodgrass, Noble- undoubtedly Moyes has said to him he's not in the plans but given him the respect to make the decision/announcement himself) and getting players in who are going to play the way he wants.

This season has been a great success on the whole. Even if I've not agreed with his tactics in some games, we've performed well and picked up some very good wins where I thought we weren't going to. Despite those horror shows against Man U, Liverpool and Brighton which were of Moyes' own making.

Re: Moyes
Manuel - he was a poor signing for us who didn't work out but do you think he was a prima Donna seriously?

Of course he fucking wasn't

Re: Moyes
He's odd, infuriating and a board poodle to boot, but if he gets us Champions League all will be forgiven - it'll be an undeniably remarkable achievement. It's just that sometimes he's his own worst enemy.

Re: Moyes
Rodent - I think all PL managers, and maybe lower league managers too, are like that now in the modern game. Gone are the days when managers come out for post match interviews with big sloppy grins on their faces no matter the result. They are all demanding more now and never completely satisfied.

Re: Moyes
My only frustration with him was the 2 Man Utd games away when we were tactically far too negative and yet between those games we went to the Etihad and put in a real shift and gave it a go.

Re: Moyes
What I like about him is that he is never happy and always demands a bit more.

1-3 up at half time last night and he moans that we didn't see the half out without conceding.

A reporter praised him the other week about our perfomances and although he agreed, he still said we can do better.

He has formed a tight and unified squad but keeps them on their toes. He is building an exciting, hungry and committed team with pace, zip, energy and bite.

But sometimes he shows too much respect to the bigger teams and should go toe to toe with them rather than sit back and hope not to concede.

He has another big challenge next year to improve the squad, keep the current players hungry and retain Rice and Soucek.

His signings in the transfer market have been exceptional though. Soucek, Coufal and Bowen have been fantastic signings and the additions of both Dawson and Lingard are simply genius.

Overall he deserves great credit and alot of praise for the improvements he has made and the mentality. Now he needs to be positive and treat the last 8 games as cup finals. We need to be looking to win every game now to have any chance of getting 4th.

fraser- You really do have a massive bee in your bonnet about Haller, don't you. It's up to you, but don't bother denying it.

Haller a prima Donna really?

He may have not been suited to us but he wasn't that.

Re: Moyes
Leicester is a hard comparison to make. You could argue they did have some world class players who moved on to bigger clubs afterwards. They also had a prolific striker in Vardy. Then they binned their manager when their fortunes turned.
