Five talking points of Moyes' West Ham appointment

  • Mediawatch: 'Second-class citizen' Moyes has one fan…

"It's a big job we have in hand now but I'm sure with everybody together we can get the right results between now and the end of the season". But I have always only ever wanted to be involved with attacking, entertaining football.

Moyes, who takes over a team languishing in 18th place after two wins from their first 11 Premier League games, has struggled since leaving Everton for Manchester United in 2013. They should be in a better position than they are.

He told the club's official website: "I would like to welcome David to West Ham United".

Sullivan believes Moyes, 54, is the flawless choice to steer the club to safety.

West Ham went for Moyes because higher-profile candidates like Carlo Ancelotti, Rafa Benitez and Guus Hiddink did not fancy the job.

The 49-year-old was caught on camera climbing on to a table to celebrate a Dimitri Payet goal for France.


"We need somebody with experience, knowledge of the Premier League and the players in it, and we believe David is the right man to turn things around and get the best out of the players at the club".

He has effectively been named as West Ham's interim manager after Slaven Bilic was dismissed on Monday morning, but the Scot takes over knowing that there is a strong possibility of being offered a two-year contract if he saves the club from relegation.

"He is highly regarded and respected within the game and will bring fresh ideas, organization and enthusiasm", Sullivan added.

The hope at the London Stadium will be that West Ham can measure up to Everton in terms of stature, given the money and the facilities at their disposal and the talent in their squad. But after Saturday's shambolic 4-1 home defeat by Liverpool saw them fall into the drop zone, West Ham's owners chose to take immediate action.

Moyes' first game in charge will be away to Watford on the 19th November.
