David Moyes slams West Ham display against Arsenal and says he understands  fans' anger: 'We were weak' | Evening Standard

West Ham considering substitutes for Moyes
After a miserable start to 2024 in which West Ham has yet to win a game across all competitions, the manager of the Hammers is under criticism.

Their poor run of form was further exacerbated by West Ham’s 6-0 hammering at home to Arsenal last weekend. Supporters made their feelings known by fleeing the London Stadium in their thousands, and with Moyes’ contract expiring this summer, many feel change is needed in the dugout.

After winning the Europa Conference League in Prague the previous season, West Ham got off to a strong start this year, but some supporters have been reminded of the team’s disappointing 2022–2023 league campaign, in which they came dangerously close to relegation.

Although it’s still possible that the tactician will stay with the Irons beyond this season, technical director Tim Steidten will be considering other alternatives as well. It’s believed that the Irons leadership has put off contract renewal negotiations with Moyes while they determine what to do next (Jason Burt).

“A new deal for Moyes is not close,” West Ham Way reported this week from club insider ExWHUemployee.

“Any scheduled conversations have been pushed back due to results and performances, and the manager has obviously been informed that things need to get better quickly. Retaining Moyes was the goal, and the team is known for wanting to stick with the manager. We can, however, attest that possibilities are being considered. As the club plans ahead, Tim Steidten will be considering his options, but that is to be anticipated.

A few names have been mentioned in the past week, including Graham Potter, a free agent, and Lille manager Paulo Fonseca. However, it looks like another name—former PSG manager Christophe Galtier—may also be considered.

Galtier might possibly be offered to West Ham.
Given his acquittal in court, the Frenchman would be a contentious choice, but it looks like he could be a possibility.

Galtier is expected to be offered to West Ham as a Moyes successor, as reported by insider Sean Whetstone of Claret & Hugh.

“The Hammers could also be offered Frenchman Christophe Galtier who is currently in charge of Qatar Stars League outfit Al-Duhail,” 

“He had previously been at PSG in 2023 where he replaced Mauricio Pochettino parting ways with the club a year later. Earlier he had managed St Etienne, Nice and Lille.”

The 57-year-old has also been called “very underrated” outside of France.
