'I'm crying': Some West Ham fans discuss 'special' footage of Moyes after 2-0 win last night
West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to react after the club posted footage of David Moyes being serenaded by supporters after full-time last night.
What’s the story?
Well, it wasn’t just any old serenading going on after the 2-0 win over Dinamo Zagreb.
West Ham posted footage of fans singing “David Moyes’ Claret and Blue army” last night, which a number of supporters believe is very significant.
As you can see in the replies below, it’s not often that a West Ham manager earns this chant – it’s not just sung for nothing.
One fan below even believes that it hasn’t been sung since the days of Alan Pardew – the 60-year-old left the club in 2006!

Clearly, it’s taken a while for the Hammers fanbase to warm to another boss.
In fairness, the likes of Sam Allardyce and Manuel Pellegrini didn’t really do enough to become admired by the fans – far from it.
If anyone deserves the chant right now, it’s Moyes. He looks genuinely touched about the love he’s receiving, judging by the footage.
What has David Moyes done to West Ham?
In a relatively short time, Moyes has completely transformed West Ham.
The east Londoners have gone from a side worrying about relegation, to a team who make Europa League games look easy.
Last night, it seemed as if the Hammers had been playing in Europe for decades – it was a truly professional display in Croatia.
Just look around the side. Kurt Zouma has been signed, as have Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal, while the likes of Said Benrahma and Nikola Vlasic have been smart additions.
The Scot is getting it right on and off the pitch.
Also, whatever Moyes has done to Michail Antonio needs to be explained – he’s arguably the most in-form player across Europe right now.
For now, let’s see what the West Ham fans on Twitter have been saying about Moyes earning the chant…
This is my favourite tweet of the evening by far. You lot out there are amazing. Look what this means to the gaffer. https://t.co/zzHrbDLteS— Matty Denners (@Denner7s) September 16, 2021

He proved the doubters wrong (me). Has turned the clubs culture from neg to pos (really hard to do). He’s given us some pride back. 👏🏻#moyesclaretandbluearmy https://t.co/dg2wnAkYZs
It's been a bumpy ride since his first appointment, but this is the first time I've heard his name sang by us. Deserves it, deserves that smile. https://t.co/xYsRbGxoh6— bogs (@Tom_McGee3) September 17, 2021
