Hammers deny manager link

Viktor-Skrypnyk-512x288West Ham have denied that 45 year old Werder Bremen’s Ukrainian coach Viktor Skrypnyk is on their wanted list to replace Sam Allardyce.

According to The Sun, Skrypnyk is now very much in the frame but a source inside the club denied the interest to ClaretandHugh this morning.

The club are still waiting to see the outcome of the ,Real Madrid managerial hunt in which Rafa Benitez appears to be involved before making their next move.

Jurgen Klopp was yesterday reported to have been offered a three year contract at the Bernebeu but this morning there are claims that these were rogue reports.

That may let Benitez back into the running and we were told: “Rafa remains our number one choice and we will do nothing until we discover what is happening in Madrid.

  1. I saw this one earlier and thought it was a non starter only in his first season as a first team coach and achieved middling results.
    I’d love to know the names really in the frame from your source Hugh

  2. The Sun getting a hat full of every managers name in europe & pulling one out.Probably be an Albanian geezer no one has heared of tomorrow 😉

  3. It really shouldn’t take a lot of working out Quickdraw LOL:-)f

    • Lol cheers Hugh I know the main names,I was wondering if my 66-1 shot FdB was anywhere on the list

  4. Isn’t werder his first job.. Move along now

  5. Bet Viktor?

  6. Just watching Phil Brown-Tongue on Sky praising his old mate saying BFS wants “to get the next job at West Ham”. A new burst of PR for the fat one hopefully the Daves have made their mind up and getting shot is their only aim.

  7. Ffs,yeah you cant blame Brown-Nose for sticking up for his mate, however he does talk a load of ****.Probably why he is now managing in the lower divisions not the prem anymore.

  8. If Madrid get either Klopp or Benitez then Ancelotti will be available for us !

  9. We can’t have a manager with no vowels my Mrs won’t let me use it playing scrabble,
    Never mind there are no women on the list yet,

  10. A Ukranian wouldnt come to us anyway at the moment.Not with Sullivan walking around in his cossack gear.He would probably assume we were owned by a Russian Army dwarf & it would all kick off 😉

  11. Big Sams Claret & Blue Army!

  12. Spoonie, are you Kevin’s brother? lol

  13. Poor old Spoonie and Kevin,I think they’re former Wimbledon fans and after years of upset when the crazy gang broke up and the team moved to Milton Keynes latched onto a new dynamic long ball one trick cart horse called Sam. Ahh true love is something to be admired.
    In five days they’ll be following their messiah elsewhere.

  14. No Matte it’s his sister,
    You know everyone has an irritating little sister,with pig tails wearing a little pink dress always skipping, and Kevin keeps pulling her hair as she sings her only song
    Big Fat SAMs claret & blue corps ( not big enough to be an army )
    Good point Rads what about Bilic are the Croations cool with the big Bear ?
    What about Hamburgs mob is Klopp East or West ?
    Not so easy this manager selection process?
    Its becoming like United Nations

    • Ahah… We are meeting his whole family: grandad, sister… Who’s next? Lol

  15. Klopp is West. But a good guy full of passion. Down to earth. Knows about what the fans go through and what they have to pay for tickets and travel. He’d also know how much a pint of milk costs in the supermarket.
    Still keeping me fingers crossed for him at West Ham.

    • He aint called Banjo the Bellend for no reason Hamburg,keep enjoying yourself on sites & have fun commenting.Whether here or wetpants.Theres always a few miserable idiots around in life.Just sayin mate 😉
