Report: Hammers scouting data is missing

According to today’s printed version of the Daily Mirror page 47, David Moyes was fuming there is little scouting data at West  Ham.

The Mirror reports that the manager was left ‘seething’ and ‘gobsmacked’ when he discovered that essential data on West Ham’s transfer targets was seemingly nowhere to be seen.

The Hammers gave director of football Mario Husillos and chief scout Juan Pellegrini (son of former manager Manuel) their marching orders in December along two other scouts and it has been suggested they were allowed to walk out the door with the club’s scouting data under their arms. There was even a suggestion within the report since repeated by HITC , that the manager had to rely on Youtube to scout January targets.

Claret and Hugh say:  The suggestion that David Moyes resorted to Youtube sounds a little far-fetched as the club are licensed and have full access to WyScout, a software service used by manager and scouts across the world. Whether the scouts really did depart with spreadsheets remains to be confirmed but if true it seems another sorry remnant of the failed Manuel Pellegrini project.

  1. Surely a well run club like West Ham, would not write or type this out onto spreadsheets, without keeping a back-up?
    I cant believe that a club with such a successful business woman as Baroness Brady, would let this happen!

  2. What a load of crap, Moyes is just not good enough. Could really write a lot more but it would get censored & not posted but I’m Fxxking seething at the negativity in the line up.

  3. Sullivan probably didn’t want Moyes to see Pelegrínis targets because they were way too expensive. He’ll be wanting Moyes to shop in the championship.

  4. Live in Ireland.
    Hammers fan since 1964 Cup final
    Thought I had seen it all.
    Give up now.
    Brentford to go up.
    Slaven also.
