Psycho: ‘West Ham’s best form is yet to come’
Stuart Pearce has come to the defense of David Moyes after a poor start to the season which sees the Hammers in fifteenth place and two points from relegation places in the Premier League.
Psycho resigned as defensive coach at the end of last season and currently chooses to work as a pundit – mainly, it seems, for talkSport.
We missed him of course but as has been the case for some time with the brilliant former Forest and England defender, he is quick to offer some perspective.
And this one will appeal to the pro-Noyes lobby who feel – like the board – that the manager needs to be given more time and that we don’t see a West Ham side that has fully evolved in season 22/ 23 .
He backed the boss unequivocally in his final comments on the radio station when he said: “Football is a situation where you cannot expect, wherever you are today, to be good enough for tomorrow. He overtakes you very quickly.
“As it is, analyzing West Ham’s departure, if you turn two losses into wins, all of a sudden they’re in the top 10, winners in Europe. And if they beat Blackburn, you’d think you had a really good start.
“You have to be patient. You don’t provide the team with the players that David bought without giving them time to settle in this country and get up to speed.
“One or two players just need to find some form. Jarrod didn’t start like he did last season.
“The team is evolving. Ever since Moyes walked through the door, he’s been building anticipation, so don’t lose sight of that. West Ham’s best form is yet to come.
Moyes expects to lose Declan Rice with a call-up to England, along with Nayef Aguerd (Morocco), Lucas Paqueta (Brazil), Thilo Kehrer (Germany) and Alphonse Areola (France).
