Gold: This is how Moyes has made ‘dramatic’ West Ham improvement in a few weeks
“Well organised” and “Super-fit” – this is the message from Club chairman David Gold, who believes David Moyes has dramatically improved West Ham since his arrival in November.
The comments were published in the match-day programme ahead of ‘the Hammers’ Premier League clash with London rivals Chelsea FC.
Journalist Paul Brown quoted the comments on his official Twitter page ahead of the early Saturday kick-off.

Although recent results have not been favourable, West Ham are proving to be a tough opponents, making high-flying Manchester City work hard for their 2-1 victory last weekend.
And they upset the odds in a massive way when they went on to beat the reigning Premier League champions Chelsea 1-0 at the London Stadium.
Gold said that there had been a “dramatic improvement” on where they were a few weeks ago, and that is more true than ever after the shock win.

The energy Gold also spoke of is evident, as the Hammers flew out of the gate with new-boy Marko Arnautivić bagging a wonderful goal in the sixth minute, with fan-favourite Manuel Lanzini serving as the provider.
The Austrian’s goal was all that was needed, as the stingy defence played superbly, holding on for the 1-0 win.
Finally something to smile about for West Ham fans, and it does seem that the Irons are a different team than they were a few weeks ago.
