West Ham boss David Moyes believes that the club needs to aim for Champions League football after a superb season last year. At the start of last season, Moyes was the favorite to be the next Premier League manager to be sacked. The fans were recently chanting his name with a fervor not seen at the club since Harry Redknapp almost two decades ago. The manager has more than earned the love from the fans but he believes that the supporters have changed too.
“I think you have got to earn it from any supporters at any football club,” West Ham boss David Moyes said. “You have to earn the right for your name to be chanted. The West Ham supporters have been patient with me as well, when I first came in I’m not sure I was everybody’s choice but I always felt that given the right time and chances I could turn this club around. It’s got great potential.”
“The supporters themselves have changed at West Ham over the last 18 months. The support we have had in the games has been incredible. In Zagreb it was great. It’s great they are chanting my name, but I see a change in them as well.” he added. “People are saying they see a different West Ham team on the pitch; I’m seeing completely different support. I’m seeing a positive, upbeat crowd. The away crowd is unbelievable, and when we had Leicester on the Monday Night Football, it was brilliant support, a brilliant game.”
