It’s been a crazy couple of weeks for West Ham, since we last played David Moyes has taken over in the dugout. His first opponents are Watford who have looked very good this season.

On the cusp of a new period for the club we have asked Brace the Hammer’s finest to provide us with their sage predictions for Watford vs West Ham United:

Jonathan Liebling

West Ham 2-1 Watford

Defense still a bit sketchy but the opportunities will be there. In typical West Ham fashion, Moyes era will start strong, building up everyone’s hopes and expectations. What happens after the honeymoon is anyone’s guess.

Wallace Milner

West Ham 2-1 Watford

Watford have looked impressive this year, but they're coming off a crushing defeat. Hopefully the Moyes era can get off to a productive start.

Trevor Criswell

3-2 to the Hammers

Refreshed, disciplined side come from behind to give us some momentum.

Chad Hoy

First match under Moyes and it’s sort of a tough one while also not being a super tough one. I think Moyes will switch up the tactics and put out a team and a formation that is capable enough to take down Watford. I hope that the team will be rejuvenated and will maybe even actually believe in themselves under a new manager. This match will prove to be very important moving forward for the squad’s confidence.

I think it’ll be a 3-2 win for the Hammers after all is said and done

Andy Kostka

Watford 1-1 West Ham

I don't anticipate an instant fix to the Hammers' problems, particularly with injuries to defenders. But I expect a tidy match, one in which Moyes offers plenty of protection to his back line. It may lead to few clear-cut scoring chances for West Ham, but a point wouldn't be the worst start for Moyes away from home.

5-4 West Ham

Jackson Schmidtke

2-1 Hammers win!

David Moyes breathes new life into the club and we finally see some improvement.

Garett Kerber

2-2 Draw

West Ham gets the benefit of the new manager boost that seems to happen after a sacking. At the least I hope we see a bit more fight and fire in the boys.

James

West Ham 2-1 Watford

Jack Kavanagh (Me!)

I feel somewhat optimistic about this one and think that West Ham United might be able to pull off a 2-1 win to kick start the David Moyes era.
