Transfer window decision pending at club

West Ham will continue to back the managerial duo but given the iffy summer transfers will be forced into some critical decisions ahead of the winter transfer window.

With that just a couple of months away and presumably targets being identified there’s a matter of trust in the Director of Football Mario Husillos’ judgement after the arrivals of Pablo Fornals and Roberto.

Not to put to fine a point on it both have been absolute flops at a collective fee of around £30 million and that ensures the rumours of a sacking for the director of football refuse to go away.

Were it to happen this would be his second dismissal in two years having been fired from Malaga after the team was relegated in 2018.

Whilst the manager makes the decisions on player targets we understand that although the director of football’s job is somewhat vague, he does have the power of veto.

Whether that has happened along the line at West Ham is unclear but it’s probably fair to say that in the meantime decisions are pending!

  1. I think there is much more to it than laying blame on individual players. Anyone watching Fornals during the recent U23 World Cup would have seen what a quality player he is. It is simply that he has yet to adapt to life in the Premiership or that the way we’re setting up does not suit his current style of play. Same true of Haller, he was a prolific scorer in the Bundesliga but was part of a two up front attacking line.
    Some of the recent games would have been a lot different if we had not conceded so easily and Roberto has to shoulder some of the blame here, Fabianski out is a massive blow to our season aspriations. Would we have liked to have kept Adrian, of course but he was determined to leave.
    I think Pellegrini needs to change things if we are to improve and hopefully the next international break will allow some time to work on things. Please lets show some faith in our manager and support staff and allow them to bring the best out of the squad of players we’ve got.

  2. This just gets stranger and stranger. Why on earth does he have a veto?
    I can understand that, if the finances don’t stack up for the club, he says a deal can’t be done.
    But surely, in the absence of any monetary issues, it is the manager who has the final say about who comes and goes.
