Ince tells West Ham fans to get behind the team

West Ham United v Blackburn Rovers - Premier LeagueFormer Hammer Paul Ince has written in his Paddy Power blog that a big name manager was unlikely to come to West Ham. He also tells supporters that they should let Moyes do his job and get behind the team.

Ince told Paddy Power “A lot of West Ham fans have been moaning about the appointment of David Moyes, saying he wasn’t what they wanted, that they wanted a bigger name. Why do they think West Ham would attract a big-name manager? Someone like Carlo Ancelotti would never go there.

Palace went for a ‘big’ manager in Frank de Boer and look how that turned out.

West Ham fans need to accept the situation that their club is in – they need saving from relegation.

Moyes is a very good manager. He showed that during his time at Everton. In fact, West Ham being a bit more like Moyes’s

Everton team would be no bad thing – whether the fans want to hear that or not.

He got a rough ride at Manchester United, branded a failure when realistically he was never given enough time to succeed. He couldn’t have turned it down, but he wasn’t given a chance to make it work.

He probably should have turned down the Sunderland job, and he’s said that since.

Let him do his job, and save your club from relegation. When your team is in dire straits, you either boo them all the time – like the fans did when Billic was in charge – or get behind the team.

It’s time for West Ham supporters to do the latter.”

  1. Bolloxx judus !! Like you got behind the team when you slithered off! 😈

  2. And he bottled taking a penalty against Argentina. Had the cheek to call himself ‘the guvnor’

  3. Regardless of the past, Ince is probably right in the manager statement. We will not get a big name, but only for now. I do believe we will get a big manager within the next five years or so. Time, it takes time to build a castle….

  4. They removed that from the badge ! We are a fekin sandcastle at present with these muppets in charge with the tide rushing in ! No one will come here with these clowns in charge !!

  5. The wording of his article much like his departure from our club shows a lack of respect. Even though he is right in the general consensus that a big name wouldn’t come it sounds as though there is some bitterness in the words… I think Moyes has the ideal opportunity with players that can replicate the Everton system I.e wingers tucking inside and overlapping fullback whipping the ball into big target men, all he has to do now is get the big man mobile enough to be in place for the crosses.
