Impending West Ham coach Julen Lopetegui has been preparing to take over the club for months. The Spanish coach presented a comprehensive dossier outlining his plan to revitalise a West Ham team that has struggled under David Moyes, suffering multiple heavy defeats this season.

Claret & Hugh learned this evening from a source connected to both Wolves and West Ham that Lopetegui has been meticulously conducting due diligence on the Hammers. He has reportedly ‘left no stone unturned’ in his research and has a precise understanding of what needs to be done to improve West Ham’s fortunes.

The former Sevilla coach remained in England after resigning as Wolverhampton Wanderers boss, thoroughly scouting West Ham. The information he has gathered is expected to give him a head start when the new season begins. Lopetegui is also understood to have briefed his staff of the challenge ahead, instructing them to recharge their batteries in anticipation of landing the West Ham job.

    Very impressive. Can’t wait for him to start.

    Forewarned is to be forearmed

  • Dr Doom says:

    This makes a change, a manager actually doing his research into our club and having a plan before coming in (as opposed to others who seem to just wing it). Starting to warm to him a bit more, maybe it’ll be more “¡Olé!” than “¡O No!”…

  • Peter says:

    Do actually believe this

    • David Traynor says:

      Typical west ham fans, if their new manager plays sparkling football but starts losing what will they say then? You lot didn’t deserve David Moyes

  • Billboy says:

    Had too many let downs by our board and ( coaches) managers making promises of success only to get kicked in the nuts later on when it all turns to ****. Afraid I have no faith in the stunted mutant or his cronies. Seeing is believing. COYI

  • Simon Barham says:

    Moyes arrived 4.5 years ago and said he would build a young, hungry, energetic team in the Red Bull model that he had studied .. Let’s hope Lopetegui keeps to his words a bit better than Moyes did! ..

  • MJC says:

    Well, on that information you have to give the guy a chance. He does seem to command a certain amount of respect in european club circles, so we could actually see progressive football under him. Here’s to going to the next level at WHUFC.
