CandH Exclusive: “We face high risk manager choices”

Exclusive By Hughie Southon


West Ham have been caught with their backs to the wall as the problems on the field get worse and worse.

This was something that was never foreseen after two fine seasons and the absence of any available top managers is making their position about as difficult as it gets.

Indeed. a key source at the club has made it clear it truly is difficult to get to grips with our  current problems while explaining the club still wants desperately for David Moyes to turn things around.

The defeat at Wolves has sharpened focus but quite where the Hammers go as a result is very difficult to work out. Nor do those in positions to make a change appear to know either.

It’s clear neither Pochinetto or Tuechel will join a club in the Premier League bottom three and the Hammers are struggling to find a manager whom they believe will lead us out of the serious trouble we have now found ourselves in.

A key source said: “We desperately don’t want to make a change, but there may be no choice and  there are not many choices without high risk out there.”

  1. I am not sure if he was a Gold or Sullivan choice back then, but my guess is that they might well call ‘the waiter’ given the past negotiations between the club and manager. Never was to be a good fit at Everton, but otherwise a top CV and did well turning Newcastle around.

  2. Pathetic. High risk verses a near certainty of relegation with this idiot in charge. To turn around the fans sentiment he’d have to win 6 from 10 and not even the best managers have a 60% win rate. It’s gone far beyond a reasonable point, there is no way for Moyes to rescue both the club and his reputation with the fans.

  3. They need to hold their nerve ignore the noise and stick by Moyes rather than make a high risk change. The last thing we need right now is another Pelegríni. It’s a strange season so far with teams like Fulham Brighton Brentford etc flying high and teams like Liverpool and Chelsea down in ninth and tenth. It’s not going to stay that way.

  4. Moyes is like a rabbit in the headlights now, and he clearly won’t make a change to try anything other than what he knows best – he is clutching that security blanket. One thing for sure, the highest risk of all is to stick with him now.

    Are you for real ?
    Moyes is the only one to blame for this mess and is getting worse by the day.
    Saw this coming this time last year. No youth when we had no center backs and Letting good youngsters go. Lack of subs, lack of plan B. The easiest EL semi final and potential finalists. Did the same thing twice with Cresswell.
    he can’t see forward and make plans. No signings last Jan when reinforcements were required. Could see this happening.
    Boring and now we can all see it. Still many managers out there if you know where to look. Brighton did. You just have to do your home work.
    Moyes is a negative,negative manager.
