- Moyes: West Ham job is not my last chance in management
It is difficult to find the words to dress up David Moyes’s return to management as exciting without lying. It wasn’t always this way; back around the time when Manchester United were winning a historic treble, a young red-headed Scot was winning Division Two titles and manager of the year awards with Preston as the next talented British coach on his way to the top. Moyes retained much of that promise at Everton but as we all know, his reputation began to rapidly disintegrate soon after signing a six-year contract at Old Trafford.
