The board at West Ham are as yet undecided on whether to keep David Moyes on as manager and that the last two games of the season could decide his fate at the London Stadium, according to a club insider.
Twitter account ExWHUemployee, who have established themselves as a reliable source of inside information surrounding the Irons, claim that the top brass at the Hammers are still to make up their minds over the Scottish boss, with the fans’ discontent said to have been taken into account.
Well this is why it’s touch and go whether he does go or not. The board appear to have acknowledged the fans but whether they will get a replacement I don’t know I also think the next two games could shape opinion https://t.co/Vot6mRfopw

However, it is claimed that the decisive factor on whether he stays, having signed a contract earlier in the season which expires at the end of the campaign, could be the club’s final two games, with home games against Manchester United and Everton to round off the season.

With just two games left to play fans might have hoped that a decision had been made on the future of Moyes and whether he will be remaining in the dugout for at least the start of next season. However it looks as though there is still doubt over what the best plan of action is, and that is only going to delay their plans in the transfer market, for they cannot go out splashing the cash without knowing who is going to be in charge. Moyes had appeared to do a pretty decent job in his first couple of weeks at the club but the fact they slipped back into the relegation battle will have left questions asked whether he is the man to lead the east London side to the aspirations that they have. Who comes in if he does leave? That will be up to the board, but there are no doubts there will be a shortlist of candidates already drawn up.
