Pundit can't believe David Moyes could be sacked amid West Ham fan revolt claim
Kevin Campbell has backed West Ham boss David Moyes to turn around the club’s current run of poor form.
The former Arsenal striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, conceded it will become “more difficult” for the 59-year-old if the Irons faithful are to turn on him.
West Ham fell to a 1-0 away defeat against Everton on Sunday (18 September), leaving them 18th in the table and two points from safety after seven games.
The Hammers have now registered just two wins from their last 14 Premier League games.
However, the Hammers have won their opening two group games in the Europa Conference League – as well as reaching the semi-finals of the Europa League last season.
Campbell suggested Moyes’ West Ham squad has got “too much quality” to fail after their reported £163.8million summer outlay.

He told Football Insider: “Of course there’s pressure on him.
“But if ever there was someone who could put this right, it’s David Moyes.
“If you notice, teams who rise from nowhere – there will always be bumps in the road.
“West Ham have had a great run in Europe, their form in Europe is very good.
“There are too many good players at the club for them to not move on up the table. There’s too much quality.
“But if the West Ham faithful turn on Moyes, then it makes it more difficult. But I believe they will be fine.”
The Irons sealed a seventh-place finish last season after finishing sixth in the 2020-21 campaign.
Moyes is in his second stint at the London Stadium after previously being sacked in 2018.
