Sadness and Wolves form present an Irons board dilemma



By Hughie Southon


Make no mistake this really is a crunch weekend for the Hammers board.

It’s made even more difficult by the passing of David Gold who was a big David Moyes fan and with whom I had one or two interesting DEBATES about his future.

David was convinced the manager to get things right but as was his way he always took on other views without rancour.

However, even he would agree that a defeat by Wolves may well put the board under serious pressure to look in another direction – we shall see.

With DG’s funeral being planned and a great sadness over the club they may be very reluctant to  change things should the worst  occur at Molineux.

With Everton at home to Southampton and ourselves in the midlands  we could end up in the bottom three or as high as 13th or 14th if other results go our way and we score plenty of goals!

After two decent results at Leeds and Brentford there is every chance we can get some sort of result but anxiety is the word bedevilling us.

Wolves have steadily improved under new boss Julen Lopetegui, resulting in a thrilling 2-2 draw in the FA Cup against Liverpool at the weekend following a 1-1 draw with neighbours Villa.

This won’t be easy with their manager experiencing a honeymoon period although at least we have some hope given the last two results.
