Hi fellas AS I posted Moyes is very dissapointed with the window it's a real shame DGS have undervalued this guy Moyes is used to working inside a tight budget and getting a strong unit together but he's got to have a nucleus to do it the injury list done so much damage and the window killed it off he's not had a real chance in my view I have a feeling DGS are going to regret this and they should do whatever they can to keep him I Future managers well roll out the usual suspects it's getting disheartening IRONMIKE.

Whats the point MIKE? We have a half decent manager who quite rightly won;t put up with the way that our owners work. Any other manager that comes in will be treated exactly the same so who in the right minds will want the job whilst we have the current board in situ. Its a shame because he could have done a half decent job with proper backing and of course half the teams in Europe (OK, slight exaggeration) won't do business with us because of the way our board (and we all know who) behave. Very disappointed :- (.

Is it true that Moyes categorically won't continue past the summer?

I said weeks ago that we should not count on Moyes being here for next season, up or down. Quite honestly, I can't see why everyone thinks he's a good manager. Look at his past record: underachievement and failures, riddled with sackings. Again it's believing media hype that he's a good manager, much the same as Mark Hughes and Roy Hodgson. All the media and so-called pundits say they are good managers, but none have actually ever produced the goods. I am all in favour of giving Moyes a chance, but let's not create a miracle worker based on a few games. What our club desperately needs is a change of ownership, a director of football and a permanent manager with a proven track record. Sadly, it's too late to go back to Upton Park.

moyes did great at everton and they still ain't moved in since he left utd he wasnt given his fair shot not to sure about spian as I didn't follow him there and sunderland was a lost cause from the start.

imo moyes has done brilliant with what he has had to work with so far. shame he is off in the summer I would rather keep him than gamble on someone new.

Great? He managed Everton for 11 years. The highest premiership position in all that time was 4th. The majority of the remainder, Everton can be described as a mid-table side. They were runners-up in the FA Cup in 2009. In other words, they won zilch. During Moyes' tenure, they were a boring team to watch in my opinion. How can that be described as great?
At Man Utd, he inherited one of the most talented and entertaining squads in the premiership. Described as "the chosen one", he reigned over a slide into almost obscurity. He had access to one of the largest kitties in transfer funds. In other words, he failed.
At Real Sociedad he managed them into relegation and was sacked. In other words, he failed.
At Sunderland he managed them into relegation, allegedly accusing the board of lying to him as an excuse. In other words, he failed.
In what language can that be described as "great" or even "satisfactory"? If that is what would satisfy you for West Ham, then that is your choice. Me? I've supported the Hammers since 1962, having had the privilege of witnessing the management of the great Ron Greenwood and 'gentleman' John Lyall. Moyes cannot hold a candle to those guys. Think back a couple of months to his appointment. The sighs were almost deafening. Nobody wanted him at the club. Now after instilling a bit of discipline and what could be described as a possible temporary upsurge, he's the best thing since sliced bread? I think not. Let's see what further results he produces first before creating him a saint. I, for one, am still extremely worried about our precarious position. I hope Moyes can pull a rabbit from his hat.
In his defence, he has to contend with one of the worst batch of owners this club has ever witnessed. Misinformation, interfering and a total lack of diplomacy seem to be the order of the day. We are in desperate need of a change at the top in my opinion. Reg Pratt must be spinning in his grave.
Of course these points are all just my opinion, but I cannot remember a time when, having been forced from our home, we were in such a desperate situation.

I would say that what he achieved at Everton with a very limited budget was really impressive hence why he got the Manchester United job. However his managerial ability is not what is being questioned, it is the logic in announcing that he won't be here in the summer at a key point in the season, this could destabilize us yet further.

I personally think that the Board already have Marco Silva or Rafa lined up. I wonder how they will feel when transfer window comes and the manager wants players cause our board are useless at recruiting.

I said weeks ago that it would be wrong to assume Moyes would stay past this season even if he kept us up. People were forgetting that there are two sides to every contract and Moyes may not want to stay. I suspected then he was using West Ham United to make his own CV appear better by adding one success. Let's face it, his CV at the moment doesn't set the world alight. that would explain why he agreed to such a short term contract.
I can't agree with WH4ever that Moyes' Everton record was impressive. He was chosen by Alex Ferguson to succeed him at Manchester United as a result of his friendly relationship with Fergie, that's why Fergie recommended him in my opinion.
I do agree with philmac that the board have someone else already in mind. I'd love to see Sean Dyche at West Ham, but I doubt that will happen. I suppose it all depends on whether we manage to stay up and/ or whether DGS sell up or stay. We can't be the only ones who recognise our club is badly administered.
