David Moyes’ tenure as manager of West Ham United may be coming to an end following another Premier League defeat. The Hammers were soundly beaten 4-0 by Brighton on Saturday, leaving them just two points above the relegation zone. This follows their FA Cup exit at the hands of Manchester United during the week, and despite a huge win over Nottingham Forest last week, the team’s performances this season have been nowhere near as good as last year when they finished seventh in the Premier League and reached the semi-finals of the Europa Conference League.
Gabby Agbonlahor, a former Aston Villa striker, believes that it is time for a change of manager at West Ham. Speaking to talkSPORT host Jamie O’Hara, Agbonlahor said, “Moyes has got to go now, there’s a manager out there who can get these players playing.” He pointed out the abundance of talent at Moyes’ disposal, including Lucas Paqueta, Tomas Soucek, Declan Rice, Said Benrahma, Jarrod Bowen, Danny Ings and £30million striker Gianluca Scamacca on the bench.
Moyes is in his second stint as manager at West Ham and made the side tough opposition to play against in previous campaigns. However, the pressure is appearing to build on the Scotsman, who is unable to get results despite an abundance of talent at his disposal. West Ham’s 14 losses this term has already equalled their defeats from last season, and they could be in trouble if performances don’t improve soon.
West Ham fans will be hoping for a change in fortunes soon, but with just 11 games left in the season, time is running out for the team to turn things around. They face Arsenal next weekend in what will be another tough test for Moyes’ men. Fans will be hoping for a better performance than the one they saw against Brighton.
Meanwhile, Moyes will be hoping that his players can find their form and start picking up points. He has been in charge at West Ham since 2019 and has been unable to deliver success as of late. The team’s performances this season have been disappointing, and Moyes will need to find a way to get his players playing to their full potential if he wants to keep his job.
It remains to be seen whether Moyes will be given more time to turn things around at West Ham or whether the club will decide to make a change. With just 11 games left in the season, time is running out for the Hammers to avoid relegation. Fans will be hoping that the team can find their form soon and start picking up points in their bid to stay in the Premier League.
