Moyes: I’m ready for Irons fans

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Boxing - BY STEVE STAM­MERS

DAVID MOYES will not be in­tim­i­dated by the size of the task at West Ham.

The for­mer Ever­ton and Manch­ester United boss has to res­cue a Ham­mers squad short on con­fi­dence – and on points – as they have slumped into the rel­e­ga­tion zone.

“This is a great club and a pas­sion­ate one,” said Moyes. But he knows that the Irons’ fans are a de­mand­ing au­di­ence.

“If you win, it makes it eas­ier to win them over. If you don’t win, then it is tough.”

The twice-daily train­ing ses­sions since his ar­rival are a barom­e­ter of the Moyes ap­proach.

And that means play­ers Andy Car­roll, Pablo Za­baleta, Javier Her­nan­dez, Jose Fonte, Joe Hart, Mark Noble, Win­ston Reid, Michail Antonio and Marko Ar­nau­tovic can all look for­ward to driv­ing home in the early-evening Novem­ber gloom.

Moyes added: “What we need to also hear is what play­ers are think­ing. We need to know what they feel would help them.”
