David Moyes has ‘lots of credit in the bank’ despite a poor start to the season at West Ham.
That’s the information talkSPORT host Jim White received on Thursday morning amid reports that Moyes was under pressure.
It had been claimed the Hammers boss risked fighting for his job if results did not improve, having picked up just four points in seven Premier League games this season.
Speaking on Thursday, White said: “I was told this morning just before our show that we support our manager. We’re not one to cut and change.
“David Moyes has a lot of credit in the bank. So much so, there’s a board meeting on Zoom this afternoon and Moyes’ name isn’t even on the agenda.
West Ham have finished sixth and seventh in the last two Premier League seasons under Moyes and have reached the Europa League semi-finals.
The success saw the Scot backed with over £150million in transfers this summer, with the club breaking their transfer record to sign Lucas Paqueta for £51million, while Gianluca Scamacca also joined for £30million. pound sterling.
Former Crystal Palace owner Simon Jordan believes Moyes will turn things around but has nowhere to hide.
He told talkSPORT: ‘You’re always going to be a victim of, or a beneficiary of, past acts. The beneficiary tends to be you get a new contract and a big bag of cash.
“The victim tends to be that you have to maintain those standards. Nothing lasts eternally.
“As an owner you know when a manager is done. David Moyes is far from done. He is far from beaten.

“It’s not great and of course it didn’t come at the right time for David. He can’t, not let him, suggest he wasn’t backed.
“He received £150m from players. The irony is that people constantly, and sometimes rightly, go to David Sullivan and David Gold, and to a lesser extent Karren [Brady], about the nature of their personalities, the move of the Boleyn, what appalling people they are period. And so on.
“They then seem to pull the rabbits out of the hats. Now they’ve spent £150m and the squad doesn’t reflect the investment.
“You can’t sue Sullivan and Gold. So who is your next target? Maybe Moyes.
