West Ham fans react to David Moyes appointment

West Ham United confirmed the appointment of David Moyes as their new manager on a six-month contract on Tuesday, and Irons fans were quick to have their say on the announcement.

The Scot succeeds Slaven Bilic after the Croatian was sacked on Monday following a disappointing start to the campaign, with the 4-1 defeat to Liverpool at the London Stadium on Saturday proving to be the final nail in his coffin as it consigned the east London outfit to a spot in the relegation zone heading into the international break.

Moyes takes charge of the Hammers following disappointing spells with Manchester United, Real Sociedad and Sunderland, who were relegated to the Championship under his leadership last term.

West Ham supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the news, and while one said “that is me done now” having been a fan since 1974, another said “we have to get behind him now”.
