Here’s the man to replace Moyes

Thomas Frank shows his delight at full-time

By Hughie Southon

West Ham are set to struggle tinding a replacement should they decide that David Moyes will be fired should results not pick up after the enforced winter break.

We have reported in the past that a top agent well known to Claret and Hugh believes they hve to show ambition by moving for top names.

Pochettino and Tuchel are out of work and we were told: “The Hammers have to show their ambition by at least going for one of the other or both.”

The reality is that we are more likely to be looking at the likes of Sean Dyche and Steven Gerrard – sacked from Burnley and Asron Villa respectively.

Noses tend to get turned up at the likes of Dyche but he proved far more successful at Turf Moor on a tight budget than the club had any right to expect.

Gerrard needs to learn his trade elsewhere before landing another big club but there is one manager out there – albeit in work who catches the eye more than any other for me at least.

His name is Thomas Frank – over at Brentford – but a move would mean we would need to pay the two and a half years on his current contract were we to be successful.

I reckon it would be money well spent.

  1. Thomas Frank I would take all day every day
    If it was Gerrard or Dyche that would be me finished with the club I have supported for 50 years !!!!!

  2. Absolutely spot on, couldn’t agree more: is already doing the job in the Premier League (and on a much lower budget than Moyes), is young, progressive, tactically astute and based in London. Ideal.

  3. not a bad suggestion, that👍🏼

  4. If I were TF I know what I would do and that is to stick with Brentford. WH have lost 4 of the last 6 Premier League matches to Bentford’s 1. No real prospects of incoming players in the January window (don’t we have enough newbies to integrate as it stands?). Also the probable absence (in summer) of the best Academy player we`ve had for many a year. The only reason he would consider it would be $$$. They have a new stadium purpose built for them that resembles our old Boleyn and they also have an atmosphere sorely lacking at LS.

  5. A very good call although they would obviously fight hard to keep him – but the point also made is that there are Thomas Frank’s out there, Brentford found him. Remember when Eddie Howe emerged? It just takes very good recruiting and courage to go outside the established dinosaur breed, and fans don’t necessarily know who is available or capable off the cuff – the Board need to know.
