West Ham fans frustrated with Moyes over Scamacca and Paqueta

|

With West Ham United boss David Moyes offered more time in the Hammers hot-seat to bed in his new signings, Hammers fans will be hopeful in seeing the club’s fortunes turn around.

It’s a move that could see the likes of £67million duo Gianluca Scamacca and Lucas Paqueta benefit, after the pair arrived in the summer transfer haul that included a spend of over £160million.

What’s the word?

According to Sky Sports reporter, Dharmesh Sheth, who informed GIVEMESPORT of the latest situation surrounding under-fire Moyes at West Ham, the club could stand to benefit from the international break with the 59-year-old granted time to carryout his masterplan.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Sheth said:

“West Ham fans, I think because the results haven’t gone too well, want to see the likes of Scamacca starting every single game. He doesn’t seem to be starting in the Premier League just now.

They want to see the likes of Lucas Paqueta in what they feel is his best position. But I think Moyes probably just needs a bit of time to bed these players in.

I don’t know how many players have gone on international duty, but if there are a number that have stayed, then maybe this could be a time they can work on some of these formations and work on some of these players.”

Moyes’ mistake?

Whilst there is certainly a bed in period for certain players who are new to Premier League football, it could be argued that one of Moyes’ biggest mistakes was not granting the likes of Scamacca regular minutes in the league.

As such, he has not been afforded the opportunity to hit the ground running and transition the form from last term that saw him strike 16 Serie A goals.

The boss has been too conservative and needs to switch things up, as it has not of course not gone to plan in the league thus far.

It’s ironic that the Hammers’ affairs in European football have been positive this season, with both group stage games seeing Moyes change tactics from the usual 4-2-3-1 system – this is no coincidence in my opinion.
