Would moyes have kept us up?
« on: April 11, 2021, 06:10:59 PM »
West ham are a team of "not premier league" quality, or at least they have been all previous years, so what has moyes done to make their squad grind out results so well, they haven't accidentally stumbled across a world beater as no one springs to mind, leicester had mahrez, but their still digging deep and getting wins over the line.

Now, would Moyes have cleared us from relegation? Or would he have found our squad too weak to work with?

He would have kept us up. The problem is the manager and dof not the current squad

He 'worked wonders' for Everton with very little money. His brand of football, it's clearly worked at West Ham.

Pointless conversation as he’s not our manager. Would anyone have kept us up, nobody can say with certainty.  You could ask the opposite question, would Parker win the league with Man City’s squad. Again no one can say with certainty.

The problem lies with recruitment. Loan players are not the answer, they all know that they have no need to bust a gut as they go back very well paid to their owning clubs at the end of the season.  The only answer is to build a fresh squad capable of taking us forward over a number of years not just one.

With only Cav., Ried, or Lookman available to play up front with Mitro or Maja no one could have kept us up, there are just no goals in that attack.

It is a pointless conversation, I'm not trying to blame anyone or anything, if anything I'm only praising the amazing work done by moyes.

I just enjoy speculating and hearing peoples ideas.
