West Ham: Moyes could face uncertain future before World Cup at London Stadium

West Ham United manager David Moyes

West Ham United will not make any ‘rash decisions’ over the future of manager David Moyes, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The 59-year-old has overseen a very impressive two-and-a-half-year spell in charge of the Hammers but is struggling to extract positive results and performances in the current campaign.

What is the latest news involving West Ham?

Moyes took over the reins at West Ham back in December 2019, succeeding Manuel Pellegrini and guiding his new side to Premier League safety via a 16th-placed finish.

And the Scottish tactician built on that solid foundation in remarkable fashion in the subsequent season, guiding the capital club to sixth, their highest finish since 1998/99.

West Ham went on to reach the semi-finals of the Europa League last term while finishing the Premier League campaign in seventh, leading to a lavish spending spree over the summer.

Moyes was able to bring in several players such as Lucas Paqueta, Gianluca Scamacca and Nayef Aguerd for substantial fees, taking his spending to around £160 million in the previous transfer window.

However, the east London outfit have picked up just four points from their opening seven league games, leaving them languishing in the relegation zone.

What has Jones said about Moyes?

Jones has informed GiveMeSport that the West Ham hierarchy intend to remain patient with Moyes despite their slow start given his previous exploits.

He said: “West Ham intend to give Moyes time to move this team upwards, there are not going to be rash decisions made, and there is confidence that between now and the World Cup, he will have overcome the problems of the early season.

“He deserves that chance and will probably be fine, but if things don’t go well, then it would be interesting to see how the board view his future when they break for Qatar.”

Can Moyes turn things around?

West Ham have won all four of their European encounters this season but have fallen to disappointing defeats at the hands of Nottingham Forest, Everton and Brighton while on domestic duties.

Although the Irons face a congested October fixture schedule, there are certainly several winnable games that Moyes will be aiming to take all three points from.

What nickname is given to West Ham United?

Wolves, Fulham and Bournemouth all travel to the London Stadium next month, while West Ham travel to the south coast to take on Southampton.

The results in those four matches could determine Moyes’ West Ham future, but the experienced manager certainly deserves time to prove his worth and get his side firing once again.
