Supporters of West Ham United have been reacting to David Moyes’ pre-match comments in the build-up to their Manchester City clash.
As shared by the club’s official website, the Scotsman explained that he was “more than confident” that the Hammers “will climb the table”, which calmed nerves among some supporters.
Moyes: “I’m more than confident we will climb the table. I think the players here are more than capable. I think they are all fully aware of the situation we’re in & the improvement we need to make to make sure we’re not in the bottom three, and I’m sure come the end we will do.” pic.twitter.com/ISKjQz0G49

Do you think that David Moyes is a good enough manager to keep West Ham in the Premier League?
No, there's no chance that we're staying up
Yes, Moyes is a good enough manager for it
While a number of supporters appeared a little calmed after Moyes’ belief in his own abilities, other fans found it difficult to match their manager’s confidence and aired their disbelief.

What do we think?
With the club currently sitting in the relegation zone of the Premier League and trailing safety by a point (per BBC), it is perhaps no surprise that some Hammers fans are worried over where the club is heading.
Having stated that winning is “what I do” when he was re-appointed by West Ham in December (per BBC), supporters will be hoping that he backs up that statement throughout the remainder of the season.
