    West Ham's Identity Under Moyes

    West Ham's Identity Under Moyes

    The Athletic's Roshane Thomas joins Sam Delaney to take a look at the style of play under David Moyes; and they debate the team's new identity.
    They reflect on the win against Sheffield United and ask if this is now a side that can challenge in the top half of the table.
    Moyes has settled on a starting XI, but could the lack of rotation become an issue for the manager. How will he keep the fringe players happy?
    They ask if Patrice Evra was too harsh in his criticism of Jarrod Bowen, and make an interesting comparison between this team and Moyes' Everton.
    Plus, they have the latest on the transfer window. Will the board invest in big-name talent? Or is it now a case of adding depth to the squad?

An enjoyable listen!

An enjoyable listen for Irons fans, not sure why some reviews are so negative.

Best Hammers podcast out there.

I came to this podcast after getting bored with ‘The West Ham Way’, all became is bit samey each week and especially as they’ve gone subscription.
Always enjoyed Sam on Talksport, he speaks from the heart in all matters West Ham, in a way most of us can relate to.
Deffo my go-to Hammers podcast. Keep up the good work.

Great Listen

People posting negative reviews must either be either opposition fans or just morons? I never leave reviews for anything but felt compelled to defend the guys because the other reviews are so wide of the mark. I’m a weekly listener, both Sam and Rosh have great chemistry and a good balance between positivity and pessimism which is to be expected from any West Ham fans. Keep it up guys!
