David Moyes????? Really?????

If the current times for West Ham United could not be more horrid, it could get worse for the club really, really soon.

Multiple reports are indicating that David Moyes is in line to replace Slaven Bilic, as the owning Davids (Gold and Sullivan) are prepared to give the Croatian the sack for the much beleaguered Scot following the 4-1 hammering loss to Liverpool.

When West Ham went behind to Liverpool, respected Hammers fan insider “exWHUemployee” indicated that Moyes was set to come in after this.

If that tweet wasn’t enough, ESPN FC’s Peter O’Rourke also was told the same .

West Ham plan to sack under-fire coach Slaven Bilic in the next few days and are lining up David Moyes to replace him, a source close to the club told ESPN FC.

The signs fully do point to not only Bilic getting replaced, but Moyes being that replacement.

You can excuse David Moyes for how difficult his time was at Manchester United, as failure at a massive, elite club doesn’t mean a manager is suddenly bad, especially after his terrific success at Everton to allow himself a chance to become Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor.

But with how forgettable his time was at Real Sociedad, and then what an utter nightmare he had at Sunderland (resulting in relegation for the Black Cats), why in the world would the two Davids think he would do a better job than Bilic?

It’s why there were always legitimate concerns if Bilic were to be sacked, since there really aren’t any viable options available to replace him.
