Moyes must unleash rarely seen £10m West Ham player after break as new lows are reached
West Ham have reached a new low in the past few weeks.
The Hammers fans attempted to besiege the directors box at the London Stadium in the 3-0 defeat to Burnley earlier this month and relegation is starting to look like a serious possibility.
David Moyes seems like an innocent bystander in all of this. He was brought in by Dave Gold and David Sullivan in November despite overseeing Sunderland’s relegation from the Premier League just months earlier and has only been able to perform based on what he has been given by the clueless owners.
One thing that Moyes can do though is finally unleash Jordan Hugill and prove to fans just why they signed the forward from Preston for £10million in the January transfer window.
West Ham fans were furious when they snapped up the former Port Vale and Hartlepool target man in January – and you cannot really blame them considering Hugill has just 12 minutes to his name in two appearances off the bench since moving to London.

The Hammers have had three heavy defeats on the bounce now and Moyes needs to make some kind of change to a win on the board after the international break.
Southampton are up next at the London Stadium on March 31 and that is no doubt a six-pointer between two sides attempting to avoid the drop down the Championship.
Maybe the use of a rarely seen talent in Hugill will provide the spark that Moyes and his men need to assure themselves of another year of Premier League football.
