Dharmesh Sheth: Moyes could plead with GSB to be given more time

|

West Ham United manager David Moyes will be pleading with club owners GSB for time to turn things around at the London Stadium amidst a dreadful start to this year’s Premier League campaign.

What’s the word?

That is according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, who believes that the 59-year-old will point to his plethora of summer signings needing time to adjust to life in the Premier League.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Sheth said: “Yes, results are king, but I just think Moyes will look at it and say ‘there are a lot of new players at this football club and I’m trying new formations as well’.

“There are players who have left and players who have come from a different league, such as the likes of Lucas Paqueta and Gianluca Scamacca, who always need time. We’ve seen it – history has shown that they always need time to develop in the Premier League.

“I’m sure that would be David Moyes’ message to any of the doubters and to the board, if they are having any doubts. He will be saying ‘just give me time to blend these guys together’.

“If it then doesn’t work, then they may have a decision to make. But he’ll be saying ‘you’ve got to give me the opportunity to mould these players that I brought into the squad and then see the results that we can get’.”

Moyes’ big test

Amidst a painfully stuttering start to the domestic season, Moyes has survived the international break despite reports of him being under pressure, and looks as though he will be given the chance to revive the Hammers’ fortunes.

It’s clear that the manager still has the respect of the players and staff around him, with West Ham enjoying much better performances in the Europa Conference League compared to their ailing top-flight campaign, currently sitting top of their European group with two wins from two.

The 59-year-old faces a big test against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday, with both teams struggling for goals, placing as the joint-lowest goalscoring sides in the Premier League with just three goals apiece.

Moyes has plenty of credit in the bank from the Irons’ tremendous last two seasons, although that could quickly evaporate if West Ham go into the next international break – for the World Cup in November – still struggling in or around the relegation zone.
