Pundit issues 'huge' David Moyes sack claim after West Ham development

David Moyes is not to blame for a poor start to the season from West Ham.

That’s according to former Hibernian striker Tam McManus, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the Hammers’ poor form.

West Ham sit 15th in the Premier League after their home loss against Crystal Palace on Sunday (6 November).

The Londoners sailed through to the Europa Conference League knockout rounds but their league form has suffered as a result.

McManus insists it is the Hammers’ summer signings who are to blame for the club’s poor form.

“West Ham finally spent in the summer but none of the players have done much,” McManus told Football Insider‘s Ben Wild.

“Scamacca scored a couple of goals but he has gone quiet. The other lads they have signed, you couldn’t even rate them because you don’t hear about them.

“You read stuff about Moyes getting sacked, I think it would a huge mistake. This guy got them to a Europa League semi-final last season.

“He will have money in the bank. It’s the players who are letting him down at the moment. I think Moyes will know that as well so that will be frustrating for him.

“We just aren’t seeing the same team we have seen push for Europe in the last few seasons. I don’t think they should get rid of the manager, he needs time.”

Moyes’ side were knocked out of the League Cup by Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday (9 November).

West Ham’s final game before the World Cup comes against Leicester City on 12 November.
