Apathy and anger greeted West Ham's decision to replace sacked Slaven Bilic with Moyes back in November.
But the Scot has impressed many of his doubters with his bullish attitude and hunger to prove a point in East London.
The Hammers were in the relegation zone on just nine points when Moyes took over and now sit 14th on 34 points and in all likelihood just one more win from securing their Premier League safety.
Many fans feel Moyes - who was only appointed on a six-month contract - will have earned a longer-term deal if he keeps the East Londoners up.
But others feel the club needs to reinvent itself from the ground up and find its own niche in the modern game after the move to the London Stadium failed to elevate them to the next level.
But having pledged to completely revamp their recruitment process and structure, West Ham will want the right person in place to spend the money and rediscover the club's identity as an attractive attacking team that promotes youth.
And there is no better man to help them achieve that than highly rated Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim.
The former Sporting and Olympiacos boss is only 43 and has been steadily building his reputation in the game as the new Pep Guardiola.
A student of the game and philosophy, the Portuguese manager has been in coaching since the age of 27 having not played professionally.
Jardim has proved with his success at Monaco and the way he has promoted youth at the principality club that he has the attributes to reinvent West Ham.
But Sullivan and Gold would have to show true ambition to lure him to East London as he would undoubtedly want complete control to shape the West Ham of the future.
Whether the owners have the necessary ambition and money to give the fans the style of football they want and their identity and pride back, remains to be seen.
