Sometimes a picture is just a picture

On Sunday I was accused of undermining the manager,  doing the board’s dirty work and testing the water on a managerial sacking when I posted the above picture on Twitter with no words.

The picture in question is, of course, former Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac who was sacked on Sunday by the German club.  He has been credited with getting the best of Sebastien Haller while previously managing the striker at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Such is the current paranoia and venom on social media I was accused disrespecting Manuel Pellegrini, told my actions weren’t particularly helpful and that the post was wholly inappropriate. There are some who love a conspiracy theory or ten in order to vent their spleen.

But you know what? Sometimes a picture is just a picture with no malice, no hidden agenda, no testing of waters or no board interference involved.

Such ideas were solely in the minds of those who decided this was yet another opportunity to launch themselves furiously at their keyboards…not for the first time, Sigh!

Sadly my Twitter post was my failed attempt at some levity after the frustrating loss against Newcastle.

Just for the record Manuel Pellegrini isn’t going to be replaced anytime soon and the club are not talking or interested in Niko Kovac 😉

  1. Shame I think MP has now overwhelmingly proved he is not up to the job. Lets see how loyal the board are to him when were in the bottom 3 at xmas

  2. Funny how a few games change the social media hysteria… Although am sure you know that it was a strange picture to randomly post though if it had no meaning, sometimes a picture is more than a picture too 🙂

  3. So why did you post it then? You don’t actually say. If you really had no agenda at all (which I seriously doubt), don’t you think that photo in particular is a bit weird. Even if you’re not saying get Pelle out (for Kovac or anyone else for that matter), surely you’re at least criticising Pelle by stubbornly sticking to his guns and not giving Haller more support up front. I think 99% of West Ham fan support this view and no one would criticise you if this is what you meant by it.
