West Ham fans seem to have had a sudden change of heart after the appointment as David Moyes as the club’s new manager.
Only hours after the sacking of Slaven Bilic yesterday afternoon, the Scotsman was already being hotly tipped to become the Croatian’s successor at the London Stadium, leading to somewhat of a backlash from the Claret and Blue army via social media.
David Sullivan cares so much about us that he's hired a manager who finished bottom of the league last season Hahahaahha

Comments ranged from Moyes not being good enough for the job; not being an improvement on Bilic; the board showing a lack of ambition in his appointment and even some fans threatening to boycott their season tickets for the rest of the season.
Much to their dismay, Moyes was appointed as expected earlier today, and will take charge of the club until the end of the season, with the option for a longer term contract should he keep the Hammers in the league.
The Hammers fans seem to have had a bit of a change of tune since yesterday …
Everton – Amazing job and was so close to CL
Man Utd – Would of been a hard job for anyone to take
Sunderland – impossible

Actually genuinely hope Moyes does well at west ham. We all rated him at Everton the road since most managers wouldn't take.

Moyes will save West Ham, Everton will go down, watch this space.

To be fair, Moyes is a half decent manager. That Everton formation would work a treat for this West Ham side

I'm sure West Ham will be fine with David Moyes. He'll sign a couple of old Everton players and Adnan Januzaj in January and finish 10th.

+ Did alright at Preston & Everton
+ Should get the players fit

I don’t hate David Moyes. Hope he does well at WHU. Everton fans hate him for going to Manchester United, but are gladly sucking Rooney off.
— hi, i'm adam

If you bring to the table the man that managed Everton
I''ll back ya 100%
