David Moyes keen to 'meet West Ham fans'

Sacked Bilic statistically West Ham's most successful manager David Moyes named West Ham manager replacing Slaven Bilic in charge at London Stadium

David Moyes has launched a passionate defence of his managerial record and is hungry and determined to prove the doubters wrong at West Ham.

He has effectively been named as West Ham's interim manager after Slaven Bilic was dismissed on Monday morning, but the Scot takes over knowing that there is a strong possibility of being offered a two-year contract if he saves the club from relegation.

He was sacked by Spanish team Real Socieded after a year in charge before a 10-month spell at Sunderland, which he failed to keep in England's lucrative top division.

West Ham fans have been voicing their displeasure on social media all day, will polls and petitions set up to demonstrate just how against the idea of David Moyes running their club they are.

"I don't know any manager who hasn't gone through negative periods, especially in the game today".

Bilic was hired in June 2015 and guided West Ham, a team he also played for, to a seventh-place finish in his first season with its highest number of points (62) and goals in a Premier League.

Earlier this year, she presented a talk on "How Zimbabweans Rebel Online" at the Re-publica Digital Culture Conference. The New Jersey native gave a statement to police calling the allegations "baseless and malicious".

West Ham has lost its last two home games in embarrassing fashion, against Brighton (3-0) and Liverpool (4-1).

Moyes' first game in charge will be at Watford in the Premier League on 19 November.

In the face of potential fan disgruntlement at his appointment, Moyes pointedly targeted supporters in a video message that presented him as West Ham manager.

"We need the support, we need everybody with us".

"I guess that's what's been our main reason for choosing David [experience], and I think it's flawless for him and ideal for us".

It was an ill-fated venture, with the 34-year-old looking well past his best and making only three appearances for West Ham. "It's a big job we have in hand now but I'm sure with everybody together we can get the right results between now and the end of the season".
