David Moyes conspiracy theory makes no sense

A new conspiracy theory that David Moyes is no longer in charge of team tactics and is just a figure head is nonsensical!

The fairy tale which emerged this week suggests that David Moyes had agreed to quit West Ham by mutual consent this summer and remains in charge but with little power.  Instead the tale claims the real power is now a committee of a senior player (Declan Rice) the director of sport (Mark Noble) and three coaches in (Mark Warburton, Paul Nevin and Kevin Nolan) calling the shots and running the show behind the scenes with David Moyes having very little say.

The story also suggests that the reason for the recent up turn in West Ham’s form is directly connected to this clandestine power shift with Nolan and Warbuton back on set pieces for Hammers.

It is certainly interesting as conspiracies theories go but it fails to address that David Moyes recent denial in response to rumours that he had agreed to leave in summer and also a recent BBC podcast by Kevin Nolan in which the coach insists Moyes is a control freak that runs everything and that the coaches are just there to support him.

It impossible to believe that a manager of David Moyes experience would ever except this claimed situation, he would surely quit and claim constructive dismal. He is known to be stubborn and is used to getting his own way.

His recent joy at beating Gent and Bournemouth on the touch line indicates he is very much in charge and passionate about West Ham and not just a bystander. I think we can safety deny these tales as fantasy without a shred of substance.

The West Ham board will meet over the summer to decide David Moyes fate but a Europa Conference League title could well see them see out his contract next season but lets not let a good story get in the way of the truth.
