New name could enter Hammers managerial frame

Claudio Ranieri has given himself a chance of becoming a shock late managerial candidate for West Ham with his departure from Nantes today.
The former Premier League Leicester City boss has parted company with French Ligue One outfit after leading them into tenth place last season.
And with the Hammers very much in the market for a man who knows the PL and speaks decent English, the 67 year old could find the Hammers looking in his direction.
Ranieri counts Chelsea, Inter, Juventus, Roma and Monaco among his former clubs and could be up for the challenge of a Premier League return after his brutal Foxes sacking.
He joined Nantes last year but his term as boss came to an end today with him declaring: “I want to thank the president because he allowed me to come to Nantes, to go back to France and Ligue 1.
 I want to thank the fans who have been great and have pushed a lot behind us. I want to thank my players because the first part of the championship was great even though the second part was more complicated, they gave everything and, for me, it’s important that they gave the maximum. I have been very good here with you, I hope that Nantes will continue to progress.”
President Waldemar Kita: “The club and the coach have decided to separate by mutual agreement.We thank Claudio Ranieri and his staff for everything the work done this season and wish them much success in their future projects “

  1. NO thank you! A one season wonder. Didali-dong

  2. We ain’t got enough players to tinker with for the tinker man!!!!!! So that’ll be a non starter as rumours go😊

  3. Do me a favour LOL?

  4. Ok , so he is available . Not the worse choice we could make . But then it comes down to the same old story [ where is the investment and a plan to sign quality players ] ? . The possibility of signing Ranieri is not a bad one to be honest . The Tinkerman tinkered the Premiership with Liecester City . It was a fluke yes , but it worked . ( ok yes there were a lot of clubs that under performed ) Wouldn’t you just love to just once Win the League ?? . Would have to say I would support sighning him . The Liecester City players got rediculous after Thier surprise league win and for some reason stopped playing ( still a mystery ) .
    If the fans are going to continuously complain about style then Ranieri , would bring them that at least ,, win or lose they would have style and pretty football .

  5. Until the 23rd of May I will not come back to this blog. Hilarious.

    • It’s not it as if you say a lot anyway , switchcase . In fact I didn’t know you .
      Stay away , probably best . But I must agree , untill there is a decision one way or the other it is getting very tiring . All the media reports and everything else is bogging everybody down . We don’t even know which players we want to sell and who to keep .
      Personally , I shall keep reading the posts just for information’s sake .

  6. Ok that’s enough , Hugh . Let’s leave the Hammers alone for a bit and look at England’s chances in the World Cup . Loads of time for all things LS .,.
    For one thing I am again amazed to see an England manager ignore the threat Andy Carroll brings to the England attack with the option he provides . Forget Noble . I’m talking about a real threat that could win us the World Cup . In the last World Cup Hodgson employed a system that crossed the Ball continuously into the opposition penalty area but with no arial threat to take advantage . Seems like Southgate is making the same mistake .
    I would like to know the opinion of other readers ,,,, do you agree or not . Strange how for the last three world cups West Ham have been ignored . Maybe they don’t like the Statue.

  7. That’s a joke right ..😂😂

  8. This is a site devoted to West Ham, no??
    On a serious note, Renieri was fired from Leicester because after one fluke year they were flirting with relegation. At Nantes, a 10th place finish ended up with him being fired (not parting with mutual agreement). He is also pushing 70! Hardly the vibrant young coach to take us to the next level!!
    Please no no no.
