David Moyes‘ expected departure necessitates the appointment of a new leader at the London Stadium. Fan excitement initially surrounded Sporting CP boss Ruben Amorim, who even flew in for talks. However, recent reports have delivered some doubts over Amorim

This unexpected setback throws a wrench into the club’s summer plans. West Ham needs a manager in place fast, not just for leadership but to spearhead a significant squad rebuild. At least ten new signings are deemed crucial, but the task is compounded by the existing squad’s shortcomings. West Ham has one of the Premier League’s smallest squads, further burdened by being the second oldest in the top flight.

Reports suggest a last-ditch effort to secure Amorim, underlining the club’s preference for the Portuguese manager. However, time is running out. The transfer window opens on June 14th, and a protracted managerial search could prove disastrous. The chosen manager’s philosophy heavily influences the type of players West Ham targets, making a swift appointment crucial.

West Ham sits at a crossroads. Can they convince Amorim and expedite the rebuild process? Or will they be forced to explore alternative managerial options while simultaneously addressing the pressing need for squad reinforcements? The coming weeks will be telling as the Hammers strive to navigate this challenging double play.

    While it would be nice to have a new manager in place and some stability, the candidates will want to keep their options open with vacancies at Liverpool, likely at Man Utd, possibly at Chelsea as well as at a number of European clubs.

    In the mean time I’m sure that Steidten is busy lining up possible players. Perhaps the fact that there is probably a new manager coming in at West Ham might persuade the likes of Ben Johnson and Divin Mubama to stay?
