"I'm really looking forward to meeting the supporters and being in the stadium with them", Moyes said in comments published on West Ham's Twitter feed.

West Ham fans are in uproar over the club's decision to appoint Moyes, with the board shocked by the strength of feeling against him.

The former Everton and Manchester United boss replaces Slaven Bilic, who was sacked on Monday with the Hammers in the relegation zone. But I have always only ever wanted to be involved with attacking, entertaining football.

According to the BBC, the Scot's two-and-a-half year deal with the club contains a break clause which will allow them to part ways if needed at the end of the season.

As impressive as Moyes' 11-year stint at Everton was - with nine top-eight finishes and having guided the club into the UEFA Champions League qualifiers in 2005 - he knows he can not dine out on that forever.

"I have no doubt he will tell us where the weakness is".

Bush have never been close to or openly amicable with President Donald Trump . George W Bush, however, said he simply left his presidential ballot blank.

If Gold and Sullivan have got it wrong, however, the future looks bleak for both Moyes and West Ham.

"We need somebody with experience, knowledge of the Premier League and the players in it, and we believe David is the right man to turn things around and get the best out of the players at the club", said Sullivan.

Predecessor Slaven Bilic managed a near-35 per cent win rate in Premier League games with the Hammers - making him statistically their most successful manager in the competition - and it rose to 37.8 per cent across all competitions during his almost two and a half years in charge.

But Moyes, whose first game in charge will be at Watford a week on Sunday following the worldwide break, urged them to get behind him and his squad.

"He proved with Everton that he has great qualities and we feel that West Ham United is a club that will give David the platform to display those qualities again".
