'Too much said in public' – Respected journalist fears for Moyes at West Ham
By Laura O’Leary
Matt Lawton, chief sports reporter of the Daily Mail, has revealed he fears for David Moyes at West Ham due to the club’s owners being out of sync.
The journalist revealed his concerns on Sky Sports’ Sunday Supplement commenting on what the current Hammers owners do wrong and how that makes him worry for Moyes.
He said: “I think he believes he can do it, but I worry for him a bit with the madness at West Ham and working for the triumvirate of Gold, Sullivan and Brady.
“They have been working together a long time, but it never seems like they are all quite in sync with each other.
“There is far too much said in public, Sullivan says far too much when a manager is in office, with lots of blame being passed around for signings. So you fear for him a little bit.”

Moyes was appointed West Ham manager on November 7 following the dismissal of Slaven Billic the day before.
Bilic was given his marching orders following the 4-1 defeat courtesy of Liverpool in West Ham’s last game before the international break.
Under Bilic’s guidance, the Hammers had a poor start to the season and found themselves 18th in the Premier League, ahead of the decision to change manager.
Despite several big summer signings, such as Javier Hernandez and Pablo Zabaleta, West Ham have only won nine points from their first 11 league games.
Moyes’ has not been a manager since resigning from Sunderland in May 2017, after overseeing them being relegated from the Premier League.
The Scottish manager has been given a initial six month contract in the hope that he can save the Hammers from relegation this season.
Moyes’ first game in charge is against Watford at Vicarage Road on November 19.
