West Ham’s new-found unity on show as Moyes leads Europe celebrations


aking West Ham into Europe is some achievement for David Moyes, but he can arguably take even greater pride in uniting the club after a turbulent period at the London Stadium.

Moyes beamed as he and his players performed their lap of appreciation in front of the returning 10,000 supporters after Sunday’s 3-0 win over Southampton secured a Europa League spot.

The traditional end-of-season ritual had become somewhat of an embarrassing trudge for West Ham players in recent years – but there was no holding back this time.

Moyes had guided the Hammers back into Europe with their record Premier League total tally and everyone inside the London Stadium was ready to celebrate.

Declan Rice lead the players round before Moyes stood on the pitch and told supporters: “Make sure you’re all vaccinated, get your passports out because we’re going Europe!”

Moyes and his players were given the warmest of welcomes by fans at the end of a season which began with West Ham on the verge of a crisis and captain Mark Noble tweeting his anger at the decision to sell Grady Diangana to West Brom.

The return of Moyes – who was overlooked after keeping the club for the first time in 2017-18 – has given the Scot the chance to put his stamp on the club.

From the boardroom to the training ground and now the stands, Moyes had got everyone pulling in the same direction, which is quite a feat in these parts.

“I agree that there are signs that West Ham is beginning to pull together, I think we are getting things much better,” said Moyes.
