West Ham look set to appoint a long term manager

West Ham & David Moyes

When West Ham appointed David Moyes to replace Slaven Bilic, many questioned the decision.

Critics wondered what had Moyes done recently to earn a shot at the London Stadium.

Rather than looking like the fresh-faced manager who worked wonders at Everton, his recent records at Sociedad, Sunderland and Manchester United lingered in the memory.

Yet, Moyes has proven a wily appointment as West Ham’s relegation fears ease.

Nevertheless, Moyes was only given a contract until the end of the season, and it’s becoming clear that the Irons are gearing up for a longer term commitment.

David Sullivan on West Ham’s long term manager

In the past few days, West Ham owner David Sullivan has been signalling that David Moyes will get the job for the long term.

Sullivan has responded to reports that David Moyes may be tossed aside at the end of the season. He said:

What I like is, he [Moyes] is very hard-working. You see him at grounds watching games. He puts a long shift in at the training ground. The harder you work, the better the results.

He’s a good manager and will prove it. I hope he stays with us for many, many years and achieves things and wins things and achieve things.

So Moyes can count on a new contract, right?

It’s not like West Ham are known for breaking promises…

Darren Criss Says Engagement 'Was a Long Time Coming' — and Reveals He 'Waited' to Announce It

Darren Criss is opening up about proposing to longtime girlfriend Mia Swier, saying it “was a long time coming” after the two dated for over seven years.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story actor, 31, told Esquire.com in an interview published Wednesday that he and Swier “waited a while before we announced it.”

“I had a whole thing written, like, ‘Usually I don’t like talking about my private life…’ which I really don’t — I was really allergic to it for a while,” he said.

“Eventually, I got over myself and realized that it’s just the best way to let people know.”

Criss shared a photo of the two on Instagram and Twitter in January, writing, “Mia and I have had seven and a half years of fun, wacky, wonderful, CRAZY adventures together.”

“And I’m happy to announce that we’re kicking those adventures up a notch. We’re goin for it. To boldly go where neither of us have gone before. Engage,” the former Glee star added.

While it is unclear when the proposal took place, Criss and Swier last attended the Los Angeles premiere of the FX series in Hollywood together on Jan. 8. At the time, the writer was seen without an engagement ring.

In a 2013 interview, Criss briefly talked about their relationship, saying, “Oh yeah, we’ve been together a long time. I didn’t know I was going to be on TV when we started dating.”

Swier attended New York University’s Steinhardt School of Media Studies and Television Production and has worked for networks such as Fox and Showtime.

Criss is currently starring in the FX show Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story as Andrew Cunanan, the man who murdered famed fashion designer, Gianni Versace.
