David Moyes has been appointed as West Ham manager – cue the meltdown from the Hammers’ fanbase in 3, 2, 1…
And our traders have reacted by immediately pricing up whether Moyes will be sacked before the end of the season – quoting odds of just 6/4 he is.

In his last job, Moyes drew the ire from Sunderland supporters for constantly signing former Everton players – and is 10/1 to sign more than one former Toffee in the January Transfer Window.
Moyes’ defeatist attitude on Wearside was also infuriating for fans of the club, and we make him 14/1 to publically state that West Ham are in a relegation battle in his first month in charge at the Olympic Stadium.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “There’ll be plenty of Moyes around West Ham’s latest appointment – as the club’s owners once again demonstrate how far removed they are from its supporters.
“Still, Moyesie has a great track record in the Premier League – of signing Everton’s duds. Which should be good news for whoever gets that job, at least.”
