Hammers play role in big sacking

West Ham have played a key role in the sacking of Thomas Tuchel!

Chelsea confirmed that they had fired the German this morning.

They have struggled for form this season and the Irons should really have taken a point off the Blues at the weekend in Tuchel’s final Premier League game.

The Hammers scored a last-minute equaliser but saw it ruled out by VAR for absolutely no reason, after Jarrod Bowen was adjudged to have fouled Edouard Mendy before Maxwel Cornet scored.

That robbery was not able to keep Tuchel in the job, and he has now been axed after the club lost to Dinamo Zagreb in their opening Champions League group game of the campaign.

It remains to be seen who they will look to appoint next, but they have been linked with the likes of Graham Potter, Mauricio Pochettino, and Zinedine Zidane in recent hours.

No mention of David Moyes yet…

  1. I can’t think of one Chelsea manager I’ve liked in 20 years, apart from Lampard.

  2. Ridiculous turnover of managers. What self-respecting manager in their right mind would take on the role?

  3. It’s true Chelsea haven’t been firing of late and been very lucky recently. Theirs and Tuchels luck now appear to have run out. The vast costs to sack him and employ another would not bother the new owners.
    Moyes must be on their radar, he has been hugely successful at West Ham this time round and it’s possible with Moyes ability to attract and talk to players with Chelsea playing in Europe and their money it’s possible for Chelsea to raid our team starting with Moysie!!
    Shame Tuchel wasn’t sacked last week maybe the sniper shot and theatrical events afterwards may not have occurred? COYI

  4. The only thing I will say in Chelsea’s favour is that they don’t hang on to a Manager who is not performing for long. No matter how well they have done in the past. We could do with taking a leaf out of their book.

  5. The amazing thing about his sacking is that many supporters feel that this constant stream of managers is the path to success. Success is never built upon such short-termism.

    Sadly this is the mentality of the times we live in. Many of the footballers that were brought in by Tuchel (at GREAT expense) this summer may not be fancied by the next (victim) manager… but WHO cares?
