  3. 'Moyes has point to prove after West Ham climbdown'

    David Moyes

    David Moyes returns to West Ham announcing "it feels great to be home" - although his previous time in residence encompassed only six months and 31 games.

    The 56-year-old Scot is back at the club on an 18-month contract with a point to prove and a large helping of humble pie being served up in the West Ham boardroom.

    When Moyes was previously thanked for his services as he departed in May 2018, joint chairman David Sullivan said: "We feel that it is right to move in a different direction. We aim to appoint a high-calibre figure who will lead the club into an exciting future."

    That "high-calibre figure" was Manuel Pellegrini,sacked on Saturday night after 18 months in charge, the decision taken after a 2-1 home defeat by an under-strength Leicester City.

    Moyes' return is an acceptance that the ploy of appointing Pellegrini has been an expensive failure and they must start all over again with the Scot, whom they had formerly deemed not fit for their much-heralded "exciting future".

    So what next for West Ham and Moyes?

  4. Post update

    The Scot said he wants to "excite" the West Ham fans and he thinks during his time away the need for attacking and exciting football has been the main change in the game.

    He also confirmed he's not had any conversations about transfer targets with the club so far.

  5. Post update

    Moyes thinks the squad he's inherited at the London Stadium is better than the squad he had last time but urged the players to "stand up and show exactly what they can do".

  6. Post update

    The 56-year-old also confirmed that there is a clause to extend his 18-month contract.

    He said he wanted to make it "impossible" that the clause can't be activated.

  7. Post update

    Moyes also added that he thought the owners, David Sullivan and David Gold showed "a lot of class" in approaching him and re-offering him the job after sacking him in May 2018.

  8. Post update

    The main takeaway from the press conference was that Moyes is still working on his backroom staff.

    He confirmed Alan Irvine will definitely be joining him, but the rest could take a few days to finalise.

    Stuart Pearce, who was with Moyes at the London Stadium during his previous seven-month spell, is a possibility.

    That's it from David Moyes for the time being.

    I'm only just in the door but no-one has spoke to me about Oliver Giroud or any transfer targets so far.

  11. Post update

    David Moyes

    New West Ham manager

    I'm looking forward to all the games. The results have been a little bit up and down.

  12. Post update

    David Moyes

    New West Ham manager

    Last time when we came in, we needed results and it's similar this time but I know I've got a little bit longer this time to execute my plans.

  13. Post update

    David Moyes

    New West Ham manager

    I think the squad is better now than last time I was here. They've spent well on players. I think if we're being truthful we need those players to stand up and show exactly what they can do. Their performance has a massive impact on the support and they're going to have to do it in the coming weeks.

    I was driving back from Glasgow when I got the call. It has been rushed. It was pretty quick to get down here and turn things around for training today.

  15. Post update

    New West Ham manager

    The supporters reminded me of being back home. The supporters have got a lot in common with Glasgow, they're fierce. The weather is similar here too, it's sunny in Glasgow!

    New West Ham manager

    It showed quite a lot of class from the owners to ask me back. David Sullivan and David Gold were excellent, it was very simple. I said 'I can't wait' when I got asked to come back. We didn't talk about the future or the past, we spoke about the position the team are in now and it went very well.

  17. Post update

    David Moyes

    New West Ham manager

    I've been fortunate to be working with Uefa in the background so I'm across what's new and what's trending but I've been going to plenty of games. I'm a football man, I'm excited to try new things.

  18. 'I want to excite the fans'

    David Moyes

    New West Ham manager

    There's a lot of new modern things out in football but I think recently there's been a sign of things going back. We do want possession but now I think possession maybe isn't seen at the key to winning games now. We want to see more attacking football and see excitement. The biggest thing I want my teams to do is excite the fans. I've loved the fans to go away and feel that at the end of the game.

  19. Post update

    David Moyes

    New West Ham manager

    I've tried to make sure I've educated myself while I've been off. I've worked with Uefa and the Champions League and I've tried to watch every Champions League game. For me, it was about staying in touch with football.

  20. 'I win'

    David Moyes

    New West Ham manager

    They are getting a very experienced Premier League manager. I think there's only two or three managers with a better Premier League win record. That's what I do, I win. I'm here to get West Ham wins and get them away from the bottom three.
