How is this bloke more qualified than someone from championship/league one who's done well? I could win Ukraine league with shakhtar— Sam Heyes (@thesamheyes) May 12, 2018
This will be a younger more exciting appointment very highly regarded! The managers being linked all will want substantial budgets can only be good news.— Michael Oaks (@mikoaks) May 12, 2018
I would take him in a heartbeat— Dawson (@dawson4555) May 12, 2018
Moyes has done a good job at West Ham, especially as the Hammers were in danger of getting relegated to the Championship when he took over.
The former Everton and Manchester United manager may not have played entertaining football, but he has done the job he was supposed to do - keep West Ham in the Premier League for the 2018-19 campaign.
