David Moyes finds himself in unique position at West Ham

|

West Ham United boss David Moyes finds himself in a “slightly different” position to any other Premier League boss at this moment in time.

What’s the word?

That is according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, who has informed GIVEMESPORT of Moyes’ unique position in comparison to other managers who also find themselves under scrutiny.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Sheth said: “Football management, you can say until your blue in the face that you have credit in the bank etc. but results will be king, of course.

“I still think that the Moyes situation is slightly different to potentially any other manager in the Premier League simply because of what happened before. Because he was brought in before a few seasons ago with the sole aim of keeping West Ham United in the Premier League.

“And at the end of that, I think he was almost expecting well, ‘let’s try and build something here because I’ve kept you in the league, let’s see if we can build something here’, and West Ham decided to go another way. And then, when it didn’t work going the other way, they came back to David Moyes.”

A tough time for Moyes

Despite Sheth’s claims surrounding Moyes’ safety in the West Ham hot seat, the 59-year-old does indeed find himself in a tough position.

Perhaps the most worrying aspect, aside from results in the Premier League is the fact that the Hammers are struggling to create chances and as a consequence of that, have struggled to find the back of the net.

Having managed just four big chances across their opening seven games, the Hammers find themselves joint-bottom when it comes to the goalscoring ranks, sharing this unfortunate feat with Wolverhampton Wanderers, who they play in their next game after the international break.

Despite the credit that Moyes may have in his Iron’s bank account, at the end of the day, results are key, with both the West Ham hierarchy and the Hammers faithful looking for signs of improvement in the coming weeks.

The pressure is on.
