Pardew believes West Ham are capable of Champions League qualification this season.
"Looking from the outside, it was brave by the West Ham Board to go back to David Moyes – that doesn't always happen – but it was a good decision," he said. “David then did what he's done for most of his career and that is create a team who is hard-edged, knows what it is doing, is organised and more than competitive.
“He had built a really good side and with some of the teams around them perhaps not as strong as they should be – Manchester United and Spurs in particular – it gives West Ham a real fighting chance of what David did at Everton and that is get them into that Champions League spot.
“I almost did it with Newcastle many moons ago but it is very difficult, it's an exclusive area. My best wishes go to David and his team and I really hope he does that."
