David Moyes vs Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
West Ham manager David Moyes dropped an eye-catching remark in his press conference on Tuesday ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Old Trafford.
Moyes signed a six-year agreement at Man United following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement. However, Moyes failed to see out his first season after a disappointing run of results.
Yet, Moyes indicated that he could have turned things around at Man United if he’d been afforded more patience. The West Ham boss said:
I think the difference between Ole and me is that Ole has been given time but I have to say he is doing a good job, bringing lots of academy players through which is something they have always stood for.
Interestingly, Moyes wasn’t asked to draw any comparison with Solskjaer’s record at Man United.
The statement which proceeded Moyes’s comparison was “Solskjaer turning it around a bit up there now?”
Moyes on his #MUFC return tomorrow: “It’s always a special place to go and I’m looking forward to going back.
“Ole had a difficult start, but the difference between Ole and me is that he’s being given time.”

Tomas Soucek will stay at West Ham
25-year-old Tomas Soucek has been a regular feature for West Ham in recent weeks.
Soucek is currently on loan with the Hammers from Slavia Prague until the end of the season.
However, according to Moyes, the Czech defensive midfielder will stay with the Irons. Moyes said:
Yep, he was always sticking around. The only way he wouldn’t be was if we went down but we always had him in our plans to be with us and he is a West Ham player. Simple as that.
Rumours that Soucek will complete a move to West Ham have also spread on social media.
The club finalised the permanent deal for Soucek today as part of the conditions of his loan deal and this will be announced upon the official confirmation of our Premier League surivial (likely to be after the Villa game) 🇨🇿📝⚒ pic.twitter.com/lDjNJLI8HU
