West Ham United’s hunt for a new manager has become a convoluted mess, with pundit Simon Jordan accusing agents and managers of exploiting the club to further their own agendas.

The initial buzz surrounding West Ham’s pursuit of Sporting CP’s Ruben Amorim swiftly evaporated, leaving fans deflated. Reports of hefty financial demands and a supposed attraction to the West Ham project ultimately proved too good to be true.

The return of Julen Lopetegui as a potential candidate fails to ignite excitement amongst the West Ham faithful. This news, however, is reportedly welcomed by AC Milan fans, hinting at Lopetegui’s potential interest in other opportunities.

Names like Maurizio Sarri, Marco Silva, Kieran McKenna, Graham Potter, Hansi Flick, Steve Cooper, and others have all been linked with the West Ham job, but none manage to capture the imagination quite like Amorim did.

Julen Lopetegui rumour has failed to excite West Ham fans

Jordan predicts a drawn-out period of media frenzy and speculation surrounding West Ham’s managerial search. He argues that this comes at a critical time when the club should be fully focused on a significant summer rebuild, potentially requiring up to 12 new signings.

Former club owner turned pundit, Simon Jordan, believes West Ham is being used as a pawn by agents and managers looking to leverage their clients’ profiles to secure better opportunities elsewhere.

Jordan predicts Moyes’ exit at the end of the season, regardless of a potential contract offer. He suggests Moyes might feel his time at West Ham has come to an end, with his playing style no longer resonating with the fans’ desires.

Jordan acknowledges Moyes’ achievements, including saving the club from relegation, building a competitive team, and delivering European success. However, a growing section of the fanbase seems to crave a more attacking and exciting brand of football.

With Moyes likely on his way out and the managerial search tainted by potential manipulation, West Ham finds itself in uncertain waters. The club needs to find a new direction while simultaneously addressing the need for a significant squad overhaul.

    So whats new, nothing, just another typical Sullivan fiasco.

  • Hammeroo says:

    Isn’t this why we got Tim Steidten in – to sort out the movement of players and a coach or manager into the club? I guess David Sullivan could do the selling for now.

    Everyone is banging on about agents and managers using us to further their agendas, the fact that it seems it’s going to be a difficult summer for us what with having to find a new manager, player exodus’ and the need to be bringing in so many players, etc, etc. It’s all nonsense.

    I imagine nobody in the club is panicking, i imagine those who run the club, who, we should remember, are incredibly successful businessmen and women, have a plan and i imagine these stories of difficult times and a troubled summer ahead are ALL media driven to stoke us fans into a frenzy, resulting in constant clicks on a web page.

    Why can’t we just wait to see what happens? Why is everyone so desperate to know the future before it gets here? It’s not going to change the decisions that the hierarchy make, so why buy into it?

    A man got on a plane from Portugal to London, everyone freaked out about it resulting in nobody knowing anything. The media made some money out of it though. Brilliant!
