West Ham are currently in the relegation zone, and lost 2-0 against Watford in Moyes’ first game in charge. They have been extremely disappointing this season and now Moyes is at the club, things have to change. One thing that he will do over the coming games is adopt a simpler, more direct approach to the games. That is going to play right into the hands of Andy Carroll.
Now is not the time for fancy football, as much as the fans would love to see that. Now is the time for digging deep, coming together as a club and finding a way to pick up points on a regular basis.
Up next is Leicester, a team West Ham are 8/5 to win per the online betting bookmakers. They have a team capable of beating Leicester, and with a new approach from a new manager, they could improve over the next few weeks and start to pick up points. New boss David Moyes would love to get a win in his first game at home and, if he does, that would go a long way to easing the worries that some fans had when he was appointed.
The next ten games are extremely important for Moyes, and equally as important for Carroll, who will be desperate to impress his new boss as well as England boss Gareth Southgate. If England are looking for a different kind of weapon next summer then Carroll would certainly fit the bill. He often proves a handful for the English defenders who know him well, so is sure to surprise the continental defenders who he goes up against.
What Carroll needs right now is game time and a team to play to his strengths, and luckily for him, that is exactly what he has right now. David Moyes will want to play a simple game and if Andy Carroll can take his chances then he may just have a shot at making the plane to Russia next summer.
