Saw some of their fans complaining about Moyes a few days ago. 
What do they want?

Don't think anyone is complaining these days, he has a solid team playing hard and working well.

What do they want?

In fairness, its a minority. Its the type of fan who at a winning club would struggle to like a manager who is winning prizes every year on the trot, because they don't like how they are winning them, or that they don't like what they are winning. Also, there is a small group who see Moyes as an offshoot of an unpopular board.

The thing is, he has shown that he is a good manager, with an eye for a well scouted player. He also doesnt take on players that the board would usually hand the manager (and was mentioned by Sam), and they are almost easy to identify..

On the whole, most WHU fans are delighted with him.

19 games played now. What are people's hopes of keeping similar form for the remaining 19? We obvs need cover for Antonio but can't see us signing someone who will bring what he does to team.

Not a massive Moyes fan but he's doing a very good job at West Ham this season.

And against all odds. A very low net spend, and a serious "clean out" of so-called dead wood last summer left the side looking threadbare. The signings that have been made in the last 18 months have made a remarkable difference, and we are even seeing it with Lingard at the moment. Remarkably, West Ham don't have a single senior striker on their books (using converted wingers).

The only difficult is against "bigger teams" when the system regresses and becomes defensive, and that doesnt seem to be a strong point for this team.

I was just saying this tonight. Absolutely fantastic job. That is really only a middling West Ham side. No recognised striker either. Manager of the season when you compare resources and quality. Rogers at Leicester has some top players.

Yeah been delighted with the run they've been on. Constantly churning out results against teams below them. Big tests now in the next few games:
Spurs (H)
City (A)
Leeds (H)
United (A)
Arsenal (H)
Wolves (A)
Leicester (H)

3 of the teams above them and 4 mid table teams (currently 9th-12th, Spu, Ars, Lee, Wol) who are all dangerous on their day.

Hate to say it, but I don't have faith that much will be taken from some of those games. You call tell the different strategy is at play when Noble is in the midfield, and the whole thing slows a bit.

Huge win for West Ham first time a Moyes team has beaten a Mourinho side in 16 attempts.

It was huge, and under great pressure at the end. This seems to be a very together team, and each player knows their brief very well. its difficult to predict games like this where the likes of Kane, Son, or Bale can make a difference out of absolutely nothing. Lingard is really excelling right now. At the end there was some real guts shown by Coufal. A total find as a Right Back.

In spite of the ending, Spurs are really all over the shop. Bale came on and looked fit and capable, and yet he cant break into the team. Dier at the back instead of Toby A doesnt make much sense to me, and what appeared to be a strong holding midfield was over-run for most of the first half. Management is undoubtedly and issue, and not that I'm too concerned about Spurs' performance, I would be happy to see Jose move on, with a view to either improving or selling Doherty, as he cant be benefitting right now.

Craig Dawson has been one of the signings of the season. Excellent last night, and he has been since he came into the team just after Christmas. Initially an uninspiring loan deal from a relegated team, he is firmly in contention for POTY.
