We’ve been in similar situations in recent years to the one we found ourselves in right now. On both occasions, the board turned to David Moyes and twice he dragged us out of the mire.
I believe that Moyes will be the man once again to drag us up the table and away from the relegation scrap. Whilst I have often questioned his in-game management, his starting line-ups, and formations, Moyes deserves the chance to steer us back onto the right course. He is, after all, an ‘expert’.
Besides, if the board were to follow Bournemouth, Chelsea, Wolves, Villa and Southampton in sacking the manager, who would we bring in? We’re not big enough to lure the likes of Thomas Tuchel or Mauricio Pochettino, we’ll end up with someone like Sean Dyche.
We haven’t become a bad team overnight. We are still doing a lot of the right things we’ve done over the past few seasons but we are painfully struggling in the final third. We rode our luck a lot during the two seasons that secured European football. We’d pick up points in games we had no right to leave with anything.
This season the opposite is happening, we should be drawing or winning games but we’re leaving with nothing. This season was also always going to be transitional given the amount of money we spent in the summer and the type of players we have brought in.
Things aren’t looking pretty right now but if the players we’ve brought in are as good as Moyes thinks, we’re laying the foundations for a promising future. In Moyes I trust.
