Yes it’s the close season and in West Ham’s case that’s probably cause for excitement enough after the campaign we suffered.
But our favourite Hammers funny man Mike Manera is even more than excited with the Pellegrini appointment seemingly just a few hours away.
He’s equally pleased that his arrival will bring the Hammers Manuel count up to two which is about par for the course in the Premier League.
The Chilean was Mike’s first choice for the job ahead of Mr Benitez and he believes that his regular foe over the last few months David Sullivan will have done a great job of he gets this one over the line and that we should all get off his back for now and enjoy.
“Time” he says “to draw a line under that” and instead celebrate either the fact that fan power may have done its job or that the co chairman has accepted that perhaps he’s not as good at running everything in a football club as he thought he was.
Sit back and enjoy the irrepressible Mr Manera in relaxed and happy early summer mode.
