Every month as a West Ham fan is important but it does feel like October could be a defining month for David Moyes.
Improved performances and results between now and the run up to the World Cup, and everything will be rosy again in the claret and blue world.
If things pan out how we hope, we’ll have qualified for the next round of the Conference League and be sitting mid-table in the league.
It’ll give us a platform to build from when the Premier League returns, and with the strength in depth we now have, you’d hope we wouldn’t suffer the same burnout as we did last campaign.
But if we struggle in our next seven league games with a number of winnable games, as well as our four remaining European fixtures, then I feel the pressure will really be on Moyes.
You do feel that he is currently burning through the credit he’d built up with two excellent seasons.
But with us turning to him twice to safely navigate us away from trouble, who else could we turn to?
This season he wanted to show a different West Ham. A team more comfortable in possession and the ability to take the game to the opposition.
But I wouldn’t be surprised if there comes a point where Moyes starts to be a bit more pragmatic, and reverting back to a more defensive and counterattack-minded approach.
Finally, I always rated Haller, and there were times where Anderson shone bright, but my concern right now is history repeating itself with Scamacca and PaquetÃ¡.
My hand is so close to pushing the panic button. I hope Moyes proves me wrong again.
