West Ham v Watford - Managerial Chit-Chat
Ahead of the Premier League fixture, at the London Stadium, on Saturday, both managers have conducted their pre-match press conferences.
David Moyes, facing the media, was asked to respond on the story peddled earlier this week that his tenure, despite how West Ham United fare between now and the end of the season, as the Hammers boss would come to an end come the end of the season, prompting Moyes to respond with,
'I've said from the start there is no point asking me or the club about a contract before the end of the season because we both won't be discussing it.
'From that point of view we will wait until the end of the season. I don't know where the story came from.'
Which is fair enough.
As for the Watford head coach, Javi Gracia, he spoke about gathering strength from his sides superb result against the reigning champions Chelsea on Monday evening, remarking to the press hacks,
'We played well against Chelsea and we deserved the victory, whether it was against 10 men or 11 men.
'I know how we got those points - running a lot and working a lot - and I think this is the key to the future.
'The last match gave us motivation, more credibility. We believe more in our work, and it is better for us but we know if we don't work and don't run we will not win.'
Who gets your vote for this one folks?
I`m going for 2-1 to the Hammers with a dramatic late winner.
