Rice: Moyes has ‘transformed’ West Ham as good times keep coming

While the notion of re-appointing Moyes in December 2019 following the failed Manuel Pellegrini experiment may not have seemed overly inspiring at the time, the Scotsman has proven a revelation during his second stint in charge.

Buoyed by Sunday’s win over rivals to Tottenham Hotspur that followed victory at Everton and a continuation of their unbeaten streak in the Europa League, Moyes’ side are currently sitting fourth in the Premier League, proving last season’s sixth-placed finish was no flash in the pan.

“We’ve completely transformed the way we are, as players, as people and that’s down to the manager,” he said.

“It’s down to the players buying in to what he wants and every time we go out there, even if we’re beaten, we come off the pitch knowing we’ve given everything.”

Given how much money was wasted during the brief Pellegrini era and how disillusioned sections of the support were with the club, the decision to bring Moyes back into the club looks a masterstroke.

Having signed a new contract at the London Stadium running until the summer of 2024, it will be fascinating to see how far this project can go.

After making such great strides already, it’d take a brave observer to suggest things can’t get even better.
