Speaking to GiveMeSport, Dean Jones has given an update on West Ham’s short-term plans and David Moyes’ future, writes the HITC.
The Hammers haven’t gotten off to the best of starts this season. They sit 16th in the Premier League and are staring a potential relegation battle in the face.
As you may imagine, after such a poor run of form, supporters are beginning to turn on David Moyes, while it sounds as though he’s also losing support at boardroom level too.
Indeed, according to Jones, Moyes may have just three games to save his job, stating that other agents are trying to weigh up the managerial situation at the Hammers.
Jones shared what he’s hearing about Moyes’ future.
“I’m hearing that he might only have three games to turn it around. Other agents will hear that message and they’ll probably hold back a little bit.”
“Agents will be trying to figure out exactly how West Ham’s future is going to shape up.”
If this is true then there are serious questions that need to be asked about West Ham’s long-term planning.
If Moyes does indeed just have three games to save his job, he could be gone by the first week of January.
Yes, if he loses all three games a change may be needed, but we’ve just come off the back of a month-long World Cup break, if you’re thinking about changing your manager, do it then.
A change in mid-November would’ve given any new manager time to work with the squad in a mini pre-season, but if Moyes is sacked in January, the new gaffer will be thrown in at the deep-end with very little time to get his ducks in a row.
Faith in a manager shouldn’t be such a fickle concept, but sadly, that’s the reality of the footballing world.
