sport news David Moyes should WALK AWAY from West Ham this summer with his head held high, ... trends now
David Moyes should leave West Ham this summer according to Mail Sport's Football Editor Ian Ladyman.
The Hammers suffered their biggest home defeat since 1963, as title challengers Arsenal ran rampant with a 6-0 victory at the London Stadium on Sunday.
Though Moyes has led West Ham to some impressive finishes in the table in recent years, as well as deliver them the Europa Conference League trophy, there are some fans who are unhappy with his brand of football and some of their performances.
Moyes is out of contract this summer, and speaking on It's All Kicking Off, Ladyman believes this summer could be the right time for him to step down.
'If I was David, I think I'd go in the summer. I think I would go in the summer,' he told co-host Chris Sutton.

With Moyes' future uncertain, Ladyman says the manager could leave with his 'head held high'
'Managers usually hang around to get sacked or they move on to something or somewhere better.
'I think there's a time in football where you're absolutely within your rights to have a look at your body of work, look what you've done over a period of three or four seasons and say you "know what, I'm done here - I've done what I can do here".
'Moyes has listed the achievements himself. I don't need to repeat them. "I've done what I can do. I don't think it's going to get better. Some of the fans aren't having me. I'm going to go. I'm going to go with my head high".'
Mail Sport reported on Monday that West Ham have stalled contract talks with Moyes over a possible extension to 2026, as the club's hierarchy want to prioritise ending their seven-game winless run.
Sutton also credited Moyes for the job that's he done at West Ham, insisting that he has 'overachieved' at the Hammers.
