Faubert: Hammers need manager who understands West Ham


Julian Faubert , our former fleet footed winger, has often talked about his love for West Ham on social media, and has frequently reminisced about the happy times he had whilst at the club.

He has obviously been following our performances on the pitch all season and isn’t at all convinced that Moyes is the right man in the job.

He claims that David Moyes is fortunate to still be in charge of the club particularly when   you see how many other bosses have bitten the dust.

These are the feelings of many and with Joe Cole having made his own feelings about the game against Gent clear, the pressure from the former professionals is growing and growing.

It’s not really a surprise but the board are now locked into allowing the man to take us through until the end of the season when we can only hope there are three team worse than us – perhaps two with Saints seemingly gone.

Faubert declared: “David Moyes is lucky to still be in charge of West Ham, if I’m honest.

“Especially when you look at how many managers have been sacked in the Premier League this season, and the performances we’ve seen from his team over the last few months.

“I was surprised when I saw in the news that he still has the backing of the board.

“I’ve said it before; I hope they don’t make the same mistake as they did when they appointed Avram Grant.

“As far as the next replacement goes, I’d like to see someone come in who is already associated with the club in some way.

“In an ideal world, they’d bring in someone who supports the club, someone who has spent a lot of time around the place, because there’s something special about West Ham, and you’ll only know it if you’ve been a part of it before.

“I want someone to come in who loves the club. Of the names that are out there now, though, I’d like Brendan Rodgers – I could see him being a good fit.

“I don’t see them going for a foreign manager – unless it was me! I think they need to stick with a British guy, someone who understands the identity of the club.”

    Interesting piece in the Guardian today about Moyes future (or lack of it at West Ham hopefully.)
