West Ham’s season so far has not been one that you would describe as positive in any way. There have obviously been some positive results, namely 2-0 and 4-0 home wins over Manchester United and Bournemouth, but now the Irons are in the relegation zone and things look bleak.
However, the Irons recently saw David Moyes add to his coaching team, with both Paul Nevin and Kevin Nolan joining up with the West Ham first-team staff as they look to avoid the drop this season, and as the former Irons’ skipper Nolan has been the man focused on, it’s worth pointing out that Nevin is also a great figure to have around.
The now West Ham man has previously worked at both Brighton and Norwich in the roles of a coach and an analyst, and having him around will certainly be a positive for Moyes as the new-look coaching team at the London Stadium battle against the drop this season.
The fans have now been given an insight into Nevin too. He was interviewed for an article on the West Ham website (whufc.com), and he spoke at length about his career to date and the current state of affairs at West Ham, where the majority of his sound bites were positive ones.
Should Moyes stay even if results don't improve?
‘I’m delighted to be here. It’s a huge club, and when you look at that squad, you’ve got some quality, quality players in the building. It’s obviously quite a challenging time at the moment, but I feel there are the resources and fan support here to see us through’
‘I’m impressed by the general attitude to the situation. There’s an energy in the building. I think you could go into a lot of clubs in this situation and feel like there’s a bit of negativity, a bit of doubt, but I don’t feel any of that here at all.’
‘There are smiling faces, there’s positive talk, there’s an anticipation for the games that are coming up from staff and players alike, so I think it’s a really healthy place to be. That’s probably the most exciting thing, just the confidence that I feel around the place right now.’
