An angry West Ham fan has insisted that David Moyes has achieved "nothing special" this season and should be replaced, as he claimed Scott Parker would do a better job.
After bringing in Moyes and surviving a relegation scrap last season, the Hammers found themselves in a surprise battle for the Champions League places this campaign.
The club now cannot make the top four but sit in sixth and can confirm Europa League qualification if they win or draw their final game of the season against Southampton. But Moyes' failure to cling to the top-four spot has seriously disappointed one West Ham supporter.
"Moyes has got manager of the year, but in the end, we've come nowhere near fourth," Hammers fan George told talkSPORT.
"In the end, we're going to finish sixth or seventh, which Burnley done a few years ago. It's nothing special."
West Ham are four points from the top four and have already matched their highest-ever Premier League points total of 62. However George's view is that with Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham all struggling, West Ham missed a golden chance.

:triumph: "Moyes has done okay, but a Rodgers or a Scott Parker would do us a lot better than what he's done."

Asked directly if he wanted Moyes gone before the start of 2021/22, the Hammers fan replied: "He's done OK this season, but a Rodgers or a Parker would do us a lot better than what he's done."
Brendan Rodgers has won the FA Cup with Leicester City this term but would be unlikely to leave the club for West Ham.
Scott Parker's Fulham, meanwhile, have impressed by their persistence in playing good football in what always looked to be a challenging season. But the club have also been relegated after earning just 28 points from 37 games.
Most people were tipping them for relegation before the season. 6th is an outstanding season https://t.co/KpQROmOGyk- Ruairi Lally (@Lally22R) May 20, 2021
No proper West Ham fan thinks this way.- Reece ⚒ (@brooksy2901) May 21, 2021
George, if you are a actually West Ham fan, sort yourself out mate. https://t.co/7FZXsCXBcE
A point vs Southampton on Sunday would assure West Ham 6th place - their highest Premier League finish since 1998-99. And this fan says that's a sacking offence for David Moyes?- Yousef Teclab (@TeclabYousef) May 21, 2021
Moyes deserves so much more credit. https://t.co/HtkskZjmNS- West Ham News FC (@WHUFC__News__) May 21, 2021
George - so embarrassing. If you have these thoughts - tell em to your dog on the walk in the park. Dont go public with em. You make us all seem like mugs. #irons- andy miller (@andy66miller) May 21, 2021
Behave George:joy::joy:West Ham have well over achieved this year purely down to squad adaptation and good management. If you get Europe that mega! Moyes has worked wonders. Give your head a shake lad. You're only West Ham ffs:joy::joy:- Mark Slater (@markslater901) May 20, 2021
If West Ham can take a point at home against Southampton - or if they lose but Tottenham and Everton fail to win - West Ham will attain their highest-ever Premier League finish of sixth this season.
But with fourth spot looking briefly attainable, it seems not everybody is delighted with the job Moyes has done this term.
