As reported by The Daily Mirror, West Ham United are ready to hand David Moyes a long-term contract this summer after initially being appointed to the end of the season in November.
The Hammers are five points clear of the relegation zone with seven games remaining, holding a game in hand over four teams below them. That puts them in a very strong position and they should now have enough about them to escape the drop to the English Championship.
The Mirror report that Moyes’ work to keep them up is enough to convince the club that he should be the man to lead them forward next season, with decision makers at the London Stadium set to hand him a new contract.
Is he the right pick to help inspire the club to a more productive season next term?
It’s been a crazy season at West Ham United in 2017/18. The departure of Bilic, relegation battles, strange transfer business, disillusionment with the board, horror results and even pitch invasions have all added up to produce a toxic atmosphere at the club.
Moyes has battled through that to put the club on the brink of avoiding relegation and that has to be commended.
His arrival has inspired form out of the likes of Marko Arnautovic, who was floundering before the Scot was appointed.
He deserves a summer transfer window and pre-season to bring a bit of stability to the club. Changing the manager again could just result in more tumultuous goings on.
