    His record last time wasnt mind blowing

    L, D, L, L, W, D, W, L, D, W, D, W, D, D, L, W, L, L, L, W, D, D, L, L, W, D, W

    Wins: Chelsea(H), Stoke(A), WBA(H), Huddersfield(A), Watford(H), Southampton(H), Leicester(A) and Everton(H)

    Some decent draws to be fair.

    33pts from 27 games, a possible 81 points.

    They have, under Pellegrini, made the squad even less Moyes-like IMO, so Im interested to see how it goes.

    Expect some new manager bounce over the next few games, at least committment/effort wise - but its not an easy run so far as results are concerned:

    January
    Bournemouth (H)
    Gillingham (A) Fa Cup
    Sheff Utd (A)
    Everton (H)
    Leicester (A)
    Liverpool (H)

    February doesnt look great either, couple of six pointers and a couple of thrashings:

    Brighton (H)
    Emirates Marketing Project (A)
    Liverpool (A)
    Southampton (H)

    Bournemouth looks like a must win already! They could be in serious trouble by March.

    I have two issues with that, have they really gone backwards? Their “natural position” is in the second tier, and, Brady didn’t make them a laughing stock, they’ve always been one.

    Absolutely. Only just above the drop now. If Villa/Watford/Norwich start pulling things together (as is entirely possible) they will be under real pressure.

    I’ve watched them a couple of times lately, I don’t think commitment or effort has been an issue, it’s that all of their players are brick.

    I was more impressed with that being the view from the inside, first thing Ive seen from a spammer in possibly forever to show some humility and affinity with the real world...

    Anyway, this might entertain a bit:

    https://www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=176695&sid=aa628cdb6840f400292b63f795124971

    First two responses:

    "Moyes' West Ham stats
    Games 31
    Won 9
    Drawn 10
    Lost 12
    Win rate 29%"


    "We are so ****ed"


    And some other gems:

    "In the 10 League defeats of the 12

    we let in 4 in 5 of the games
    3 in 3 others
    2 in the other 2"


    "Personally I can’t wait for his dead eyed stare in the photo shoot as he holds up our rubbish home shirt.

    Maybe the club will try to save money so that he can sign another Hugill and just photoshop it on the 2017 one"


    "Three at the back! Ha ha
    Five at the back with wing backs not crossing the half way line

    Rice, Noble and probably Snodgrass in front

    Two attacking players. One tasked with chasing the long balls, the other with getting up to support him

    Oh what joy
    This is the man who played Kouyate as a number 10 to help give knockdowns to Arnoutovuc

    Decent bloke, **** of a manager"

    "Pellegrini last 27 league games at West Ham
    W 9
    D 5
    L 13
    GF 36

    GD -8

    Many of them can't work out why it went so wrong when Pellegrini is clearly a good manager.

    None of them appear to understand the problem is entirely one of expectation. Finishing anywhere in the top 10 of the Championship to the bottom 5 of the PL is par. Above that is massively overachieving.

    You can't blame their fans for having high expectations for their team, we spent enough years drifting mid table and occasionally flirting with relegation yet I never gave up the hope we would reach the heights we have reached. As long as I've been going to football they have been a well supported club who try to play good football. They have suffered from poor management at board level and the current stewards will not improve the situation, but they are a club who could do well if the right people came along and bought them.

    What are there ticket prices like? Still cheap? Even though we have a huge debt, I bet we make more from our ground even once you minus debt repayments a year than they do in ticket sales and whatever else they get to keep.

    Imagine the atmosphere at the taxpayers stadium in the Championship.

    Attendance is down. If you want a truly depressing read, head over to Kumb and read a few pages of their stadium thread. Here are the last few days.

    The West Ham fan backlash has begun - good luck, David Moyes, you're going to need it
    The West Ham board made the bold decision to sack Manuel Pellegrini and bring back the manager they binned 18 months ago in Moyes

    By
    Matt Lawless
    Head of Digital Sport

    David Moyes is back at West Ham. And the backlash on the board has already begun.

    Before the Scot is paraded on New Year’s Day, many are already talking up a boycott. Lots are saying they won’t renew their season tickets. And almost everyone is pointing the problems of the club squarely at three people: David Sullivan, David Gold and Karren Brady.

    Shortly before the lights went out on the Boleyn Ground, ‘Mr West Ham’ made an emphatic statement to the supporters.

    “This club ain’t run like a circus anymore.”

    Fast forward three-and-a-half years and Mark Noble‘s message is now a meme. For all the wrong reasons.

    Like it or not, struggling West Ham are the laughing stock of the Premier League - and their unpopular hierarchy are duly branded ‘clowns’ by the disgruntled masses.

    Their quick-fire decision to reappoint Moyes on a one-and-a-half year deal has not gone down well at all with the disenfranchised East End faithful. Even former TOWIE star Mark Wright has had a pop on Twitter.

    The former Manchester United boss was seemingly deemed not good enough for the job 18 months ago. Now he’s back.

    For many ardent fans, it is the latest saga in a catalogue of errors since Sullivan and Gold completed their takeover of the club back in January 2010.

    They promised grand dreams of Champions League football. Yet they were relegated.

    They promised an elite stadium that would be viewed as one of the best in the world. Yet they delivered an athletics arena with temporary seating and scaffolding.

    The list goes on. And the vitriol of discontent levelled towards them will inevitably rise again if Moyes fails to get off to a good start or, even worse, fails to keep the club in the Premier League.

    And it won’t be easy either. The Hammers host fellow strugglers Bournemouth before playing Sheffield Utd (away), Everton (home), Leicester (away) and Liverpool (home) in January. That’s before facing Brighton at home and trips to Emirates Marketing Project and Liverpool in February.

    On current form - just two wins in 13 league games - it’s hard to see where West Ham’s next victory will come from.

    But they have opted for Moyes because he is the ‘safe’ option. He knows the club and he knows the players. The expectation is that he will pick up from where he left off.

    That was a 13th place finish after inheriting a team in the drop zone.

    This time round, West Ham are a point off the relegation places. Yet the task that awaits the 56-year-old boss certainly seems more daunting.

    Moyes, for all his critics, is a good manager. He has 15 years of Premier League experience alone and should bring in a proven backroom set-up. He will want to run the rule over the current squad - a squad considered by many pundits at the start of the season to be capable enough of challenging the top six elite - before he looks at the market. An energetic midfielder who can provide a presence in the engine room will be the priority while an injection of pace is needed too.

    For me, a West Ham season ticket holder, he is a good manager for a club like ours. I truly hope the fans will get behind him.

    He just isn’t the type of “next level” manager the fans were promised they would get when they left for pastures new. And so, it is clear now more than ever before that their owners are running out of ideas. Bringing Moyes back smacks of absolute desperation. Relegation to the Championship is unfathomable.

    ‘Clowns’. ‘Clueless’. Those are just the printable phrases being used to describe the club’s owners by fed-up supporters on social media.

    Whether the returning Moyes is a success or not, the majority of supporters have simply had enough of those running the club.

    So, it begs the question: is it time for them to sell up?

    In 10 years of ownership there has been a consistent pattern of failure. Managers have come and gone (and come back). Star players have sulked and left. Fans have rioted. And in 40 years the club has still not won a single trophy (sorry, but the Intertoto Cup doesn’t really count).

    Until the structure changes from top to bottom, the circus will continue.

    Right now it is one big joke. And the smiles are definitely not on West Ham faces.

    Very best of luck to you, David Moyes. You will need it.

    He's as desperate as they are.

    Telling that he hasnt had a job since they last let him go. His career is in a nosedive, and he'll be grateful just to get a job at Premier League status.

    So the West Ham board let him go when he saved them from relegation because they were too big for the likes of him. Now they realise that they belong together.

    They've never been anything but a tiny club though - their expectations are way out of line with anything they've achieved historically.

    Even when we were complete brick we were often referred to as sleeping giants.
