David Moyes has been confirmed as the latest West Ham United manager coming in to replace Manuel Pellegrini.
The Scotsman has put pen to paper on an 18-month contract and will be starting his tenure on Wednesday when AFC Bournemouth come to London Stadium.

In a statement on their official Twitter page, West Ham announced that they are pleased to have the 56-year-old on board.

However, the message from Hammers fans is that they are far from pleased about having him back in the dugout in east London.
He kept the club in the Premier League when managing them between November 2017 and May 2018, but it was far from an inspiring period, as he averaged just 1.19 points per game.
This has led to a severe lack of enthusiasm about his return with one fan even tweeting “#MoyesOut”.
Did he really play for us?! No West Ham fan has managed to name all of these obscure Irons signings….

There have also been those who have taken aim at David Gold, David Sullivan and Karren Brady, who masterminded the move away from Upton Park to London Stadium.
Fans have referenced promises of reaching the next level as a reason why the stadium move and acquisition of Moyes should not have been two things that happened to the same club.
There were also hints that there could be protests, similar to those against Burnley last time Moyes was at the club.

I can see things getting very ugly very quickly.
Reap what you sow Sullivan, Gold and Brady a storm not seen since the bond scheme days is heading your way
