WHO Poll
Q: 2023/24 Hopes & aspirations for this season
a. As Champions of Europe there's no reason we shouldn't be pushing for a top 7 spot & a run in the Cups
b. Last season was a trophy winning one and there's only one way to go after that, I expect a dull mid table bore fest of a season
c. Buy some f***ing players or we're in a battle to stay up & that's as good as it gets
d. Moyes out
e. New season you say, woohoo time to get the new kit and wear it it to the pub for all the big games, the wags down there call me Mr West Ham

Moyes Out
Posted the same last year. Nothing has changed, except win don't win matches anymore.
I'm fed up, we can do much better

"Bringing in some foreign coach in my view is nuts. He'd have to change 2/3rds of the squad."

Good. Considering we have a playing squad of 14 players, and quite a few of those are getting on a bit, I reckon changing 2/3rds of our squad is about right.

“ We can't do a 360 turn on our style without a high risk of relegation”

No, Moyes can’t do a 360 turn on our style. Because he doesn’t know how to.

Other coaches can. Emery turned Villa around in like 1 season. Alonso has just done it with Leverkusen. All with less money than we’ve spent and lesser squads than we have to be fair.

Moyes is the type of person that wants congratulations for putting out a fire he started in your house! Whether it’s not using the jan window properly causing lack of squad depth. Or getting in a player at ridiculous salary who has barely played for 2 yrs. these are all unforced errors. But he wants us to not remember any of that whilst he puts out a defensive masterclass that sees us concede pretty much every game.

Re: Moyes Out
Short of the Liverpool job our (pending) managerial vacancy has got to be one of the most exciting and desirable jobs available anywhere this summer.

Premier League
Exciting players (Bowen, Kudus, Alvarez)
Likely transfer kitty of £150m
Director of Football who knows his stuff
Our three years in Europe and ECL win has given us a high profile
Quality youth set up

Re: Moyes Out
Wonder if Moyes thinks he still has that deal on the table which he can sign if/when he wants. pillock.

Re: Moyes Out
Why could Potter do it but a foreign manager couldn’t. I find that a really strange statement.

Arguably we have got to change 2/3rds of our squad anyway due to the way Moyes has let it run down with ageing players and lack of numbers generally.

Once the likes of Paqueta, Cresswell, Ings, Ogbonna, Zouma, leave an already depleted squad there is not much left.

There is a very decent 6-7 players left as a foundation but we are going to need TS to work some magic with the Paqueta funds including a few decent 'frees'.

Re: Moyes Out
Kehrer, Benrahma and Fornals situations weren't really a question of 'can we get replacements in or not'.

All 3 had made their minds up that they wanted out because they were getting virtually no game time and not enjoying being at the club. They were simply desperate to leave and it happened regardless of us bringing anyone in.

And Moyes created that situation.

4 years in and we still haven't seen his ability to make us pass an actual football or showcase any kind of movement off the ball. Pathetic. All we do is look to shut down an opposition. Anti-football verses teams that want to play.

Re: Moyes Out
JWP has 6 goals and 7 assists in the PL.

Considering he's probably played 15 games in his position, it's a very good return. The rest of the time he's been converted to the 34 year old Mark NOBLE role to accommodate the lumbering oaf soucek, and he has looked predictably dogshit.

Re: Moyes Out
The biggest concern this club has is how we get rid of Moyes and maintain our premiership status whilst rebuilding a team that actually play on the front foot. There is nowhere to hide in the Prem; mid table obscurity in the Bundesliga, Liga 1, La liga etc is not the same as in our league. The bottom 3 in the Prem would be mid table in all of those leagues. This is the dilema facing the board. We can't do a 360 turn on our style without a high risk of relegation. None of us want that least of all the owners. We need someone like Potter who can use what we have and perhaps over 3-5 years slowly change us into the club so many of us want to see play. Bringing in some foreign coach in my view is nuts. He'd have to change 2/3rds of the squad.

Re: Moyes Out
ludo, he managed Real Madrids kids before managing Real Sociedad B for three years who play in the Spanish equivalent of the championship (possibly a slightly lower standard)

Re: Moyes Out
What fucking retard at the club sanctioned the outgoings of Benrahma and Formals in Jan with no attacking replacements ?

Beggars belief

Re: Moyes Out
Could imagine JWP going back to Southampton if they get promoted.

Re: Moyes Out
Technically i think JWP is a decent player, we just don't use him in the right way.

We have the spine of a team as good as any outside the top 6, and two or three that walk into most teams.

Manuel 2:10 Fri Apr 12
Re: Moyes Out
I'd take Fonseca or Slot, and Potter, but I reckon he's going to Manu. Please just get shot of this cunt.

Re: Moyes Out
We need players all over the pitch. Every single position.

GOALTENDER is only position where we might not need someone in over the summer. That's dependant on what happens to Fabianski.

Re: Moyes Out
Realistically (or rather ideally) only the following would be first team players next season:


Several of the U21s should step up into the first team squad to join the likes of Downes, JWP, Coufal and Soucek on the bench (if they are retained) but we are going to need 5-6 decent new additions as a minimum.

Re: Moyes Out
The real sad thing is that if we would have got rid of him when we should have, Oct/Nov 2022 when we were in the bottom 3 and were playing SHOCKING, and got the right man in, we would still have won the Intertoto Cup but at a canter, and we'd be pushing for the top 4 like Villa are, who were brave enough to get rid of their under-performing manager.

Chance wasted, and now the new man is going to have a hell of a job on his hands, for a whole variety of reasons, because of the mis-management of our squad mostly to do with the manager. Zouma could go at any time, Aguerd is shit, Coufal is on the decline, JWP & Soucek not good enough to start under a proper manager, Paqueta off, only over the hill strikers. What a mess.

Re: Moyes Out
I don't know who was responsible for signing Alonso up (TS?) but they said in commentary that he was managing a Spanish U14 side.

I can't see Sullivan taking a risk like that.

Re: Moyes Out
A 10th place finish and run to the quarter finals of the Europa League is a pefect time to say goodby to Moyes. He clearly cannot take us to the next level (tinpot Johnsons Paint Trophy of Europe win aside).

Time to bin him and get in a young, progressive manager. Alonso is proof that there ARE managers out there we can take a punt on and hopefully move forwards.

"Whoever gets it will have his own “ out “ thread on here within a week"

I can't see why you hero worship Moyes. He likes to dig out the fans also when things aren't going his way also.
