West Ham United To Offer This Scotsman A New Contract: Is He Indispensable For The Hammers?

The managerial sack is a term that has become so common that is almost casually attached to any manager passing through a lean patch and a story develops around it. However, it still remains the most sought-after job simply because it offers a glamour very few jobs can. The manager sets the club with his plans and strategies and devises tactics. He is the one who shoulders the blame when something goes wrong and reaps the success of the club when things go right. If he is successful, he becomes the hero but if he fails to deliver, he is simply sacked for the next man with a message of formal gratitude. His previous record, image, abilities all are left out of consideration as nothing is considered when the sack comes.

When Slaven Bilic’s West Ham United were suffering in the league, the club decided to part ways with him and bring in a Premier League veteran in David Moyes. The Scot has managed three different clubs in the Premier League with his highest level of achievement being the man to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford and his longest stint being with Everton for eleven years.

However, his United spell proved to be a failure and the West Ham job was an opportunity for him to turn things around.

Despite a few difficult games, in the beginning, David Moyes turned things around quickly at the club. He will look to build on his good start to the new year as he attempts to wash over his previous success and consequent failure and rewrite his credentials. West Ham United, after being winless in nine matches turned things around in grand style. A shocking 1-0 win over defending champions Chelsea followed by a gritty draw against another heavyweight side Arsenal and then a 3-0 hammering of Stoke City back in the festive period made the fans hopeful again.

West Ham are now 12th in the table and look well set to stay in the top tier of English competition. The Hammers are now reportedly ready to offer their gaffer a new contract that will see Moyes extend his stay. The current contract expires at the end of the current season but if it is believed that should the Scot be able to keep the team in the English Premier League, he and his coaching staff will be offered a two-year extension on his contract.

Certainly, the right way for the club to proceed given Moyes’ prior experience in the league and the excellent job he has done in the short span of time at the club.
