Forget false reports – Benitez not wanted

Regular confirmation of news what Claret and Hugh revealed weeks ago – that West Ham are ready to stick by David Moyes for the time being is pouring out of a number of websites.

Oddly, one in particular – Football Insider – is claiming this coupled with the fact Rafa Benitez is the favourite should they change their minds – a scenario first painted by teh Daily Mail.

The outlet claims under a huge EXCLUSIVE tag that the club have “reached out” to the former Liverpool boss but that is simply not the case.

It bears repeating what we explained Managerial duo not wanted despite reports – Claretandhugh yesterday that only he and Macelo Bielsa are currently available and neither will take the job unless they get a three and a half year deal. We had first broken the story two days ago.

It’s hugely important this is understood because the Hammers want neither of them and have told us so.

Benitez turned them down for Real Madrid at the same time as they rejected Bielsa for Slaven Bilic and neither are in the running at this time.

Quite simply right now no Premier League experienced managers are available and that remaons the West Ham board’s problem.

  1. Insanity, all is insanity. A man wins the League and European Cup and is not worth a try over a fool who has won nothing and doesn’t know what he doing. Will someone save us from this nightmare.

  2. Whilst I agree that Benitez would not be a good choice I do not get the logic of hanging on to a manager who you know is going to fail as there are no experienced options. I can’t see West Ham winning another game the way that Moyes is setting up.

  3. Moyes is stubbornly stuck in a defensive mindset that borders on insanity. It’s like I will do this my way and I will keep doing it until it works – he does not want to be shown to being wrong. He is putting his pride ahead of the club. He is not an intelligent person and he is not the person to bring us to the next level. He should have been sacked at the start of the world cup as he does not have the ability to improve players and develop them into a high performing team. I have been calling out all these reservations for a long time now. He needs to be sacked as soon as possible if we want to save our PL status, if we want to win one or both cups

  4. This is incredibly worrying that Sullivan is getting bogged down in this way of thinking that we should only target someone with PL experience. The board can never think outside the box like some of the other clubs in the prem. De Zerbi, Thomas Frank, Potter, none of these had prem experience before going to smaller clubs than us and having big results. Why can’t we go for someone up and coming with new ideas like Carrick for example. There is no preparation and we have leaving things too late like we did under Grant

  5. Exactly he has one nothing and never beaten the top six sides, would rather have Benitez than leave this idiot in charge he will take us down.
