Why a new deal for David Moyes is a step in the right direction for West Ham
According to The Guardian (h/t Daily Mail), David Moyes could be handed a new contract at the end of the season by West Ham. The club have been impressed by the start to this season and how he has managed to turn things around. Moyes’ current deal runs out in less than 6 months and the club want to hand him a long-term deal.
Moyes has turned around the fortunes of West Ham
When a manager performs well and exceeds expectations, there is naturally a talk about a new contract. The club is in a good state for the first time in ages and Moyes has actually done some good work. Currently, the club sit in 7th place, winning 9 of their 19 games and well within reach of European football.
He has fostered good team spirit within this group and they all look like they are united in their cause. Sure there is room for improvement in some areas of the pitch but that is normal for a mid-table club like West Ham.
The way he has shifted from formation to formation was a tremendous masterstroke. The players have seamlessly adjusted to a back-three and back-four as and when required.

The attack looks decent, the midfield looks industrious and the defence looks better compared to recent seasons. The club has given Moyes the players he has wanted and the results are there to see.
It looks like the has belief more than anything. Moyes has shown in his career that he can last for long periods at a job, as his Everton stint is proof of that. Handing Moyes a new long-term contract wouldn’t be the worst thing to do. He has shown his mettle and is deserving of a new deal.
