I hope he walked away before the odious little turd in charge tried to show who runs this shower.

I thought he did ok.

In some games we looked well organised and played some decent football, at the same time in several games we looked an absolute shambles.

In a normal club he probably earned the right to a full season to show what he could do with a pre-season and a transfer window to do what was necessary for the team/squad.

I can see both sides of
A) A new young manager with new ideas.
B) An established PL Manager to keep a steady ship and improve over time.

Unfortunately our useless incompetent board will be a handicap to both selections.

Good luck to him - he deserves better than working for the three parasites.

I like Ranieri as a guy but he’s 66 years old. Even I’m not that old!

However, I’d love to see someone like him coupled with a younger manager with more progressive ideas. Not that our owners would ever consider paying for two people.

That said, if he’s cheap he’s probably already signing the papers. Sully would love to spin us the line that he’s got us a Premier League winning manager, same as he got us England’s #1 goalie.

Please not Raneri, he is a poor manager, one fluky season built on the previous managers ideas does not cover the last ten years.

Deserved a proper go at the job.

The dildo's were obviously messing him around by saying "Lets discuss your role later this week" while frantically working in the background hoping they could get someone better while using Moyes as the backup option.

Good on Moyes for telling them where to stick it.

I was not a fan but over course of the season while boring had brought stability while at times playing some decent stuff.

Steadying the ship would have been difficult for any manager so he showed that he knows what he is doing. Can leave with his head held high.

Probably easier to say 'stick it' when you're a millionaire, but your point is right. Not saying 'yes' or 'no' to him while he finds out they're in talks with someone else is shabby to say the least. But let's get it all in the media of course. Cheap barstewards.

I seem to echo most of the views here:
Wasn't keen when announced he was appointed.
Frustrated with some of the negative defensive strategies of just playing 1 up front, the cup games, and thought he was right to give Hart a chance but thought he should have dropped him straight after.

Yet, full marks to him for his handling of the spitting incident,and seemingly with AC's tantrums. Came across as a decent, respectful man.

What we will now witness is going through a list of big names that won't happen and we'll end up with a lesser manager than Moyes.

Think the Dildo brothers could have managed the situation better by ensuring had all options covered of new manager or keeping Moyes.

As usual, expect gross mismanagement.

Bye Moysey. You done what you were asked to do, but you're not my idea of a West Ham manager.
Good luck for the future.

Knew the Players , knew what was needed to improve the Squad and would have had us between 10th and 6th each season .

I'm hearing that Benitez wants £100k per week and £100m transfer kitty - probably nonsense as they're not due to meet until next week .

Good Luck , Dave [ Moyes ] and

Good Luck , Dave [ Sullivan ] .

Been saying the same for weeks.

Moyes made himself unavailable because he sussed the transfer budget would be £50 million below the number quoted and we'd end up with journeymen and no bodys.

Getting rid of a capable manager every six months is absurd. Unfortunately it looks like becoming the new 'West Ham way'. Social media driven discontent is going to happen and it will now repeat itself as soon as Pellagrini (or whoever lands the temporary job) has a bad run of three games.

'Daft' is the kindest thing I can say about it.

Anyway, thanks DM, and good luck in your next temporary appointment. You did what was asked of you and I must have missed the endless run of dull 0-0 draws that your style of football inevitably produces.

He did the job he was employed to do despite the board that appointed him.as per usual, this board showed no class when dealing with him at the end of the season and he made a principled decision. Goodbye and good luck

Bloody love this thread. What’s it all about.

Thanks Dave. You’ve rebuilt your reputation and then some some. Dignity is rightfully the watchword.

Will we kick ourselves for not letting you continue? Likely.

Farewell David Moyes
Though we hardly knew you at all
You had the wit to pull us safe
When relegation called
Whilst many thought you could work
And next year might not be the same
You’ve left the club with dignity
As we chase a “brighter” game
And it seemed to me you did your job
Like a candle in the wind
Never wavering from your target
As the hate came in
I would have liked to have seen you
Given another year
It seems patience ran out long before
At least it did round here

:tune:

If I were an Arsenal fan I'd certainly have more confidence in Moyes or Benitez to turn things round than an unproven Arteta.
