256. This fairytale won't have a happy ending

Listen on

Episode notes

It has been a fairytale but, unlike the ones we see in the movies, this one won't have a happy ending.

David Moyes' time as West Ham manager is surely coming to its conclusion. The latest defeat to Nottingham Forest has put even more pressure on him as his players continue to seek a first win of 2024. But we must not forget that while it's likely to end very soon, the era Moyes has overseen has been the most successful and, without a doubt, the most unexpected periods in a generation.

He return with us one point above the relegation zone and seriously fearing dropping back into the Championship. He will leave having led the club to its first silverware since 1980, secured three consecutive European campaigns for the first time in the club's entire history and finished in the top seven of the Premier League twice.

He gave us moments like Sevilla at home, Lyon away and, of course, that night in Prague. He gave us Jarrod Bowen, oversaw Declan Rice's growth from promising youngster to one of the best midfielders in world football and delivered on the promises made by the board when we moved to Stratford. European football. He delivered all of that in just four years, all from a standing start. All from a point of imminent relegation.

Whatever you think of David Moyes right now, you simply cannot disregard the success he has had and the impact he has had on our great club. His legacy will live on, even if he will eventually leave under a dark cloud.

That provides the bulk of our discussion this week.
