West Ham are showing how not to run a football club

I guess I understand football less and less watching the team concede 14 goals in February and relying on two players to score goals.

Before Paqueta and Bowen, goal reliance was on the shoulders of either  Antonio, or Lingard. Now it is Paqueta and/or Bowen. If they are “off”, there is no Plan B. At the same time our defence is a joke.

You can’t run a serious team like that. If West Ham aspire to be more than a mid-table club, we need to have a bench with one player of equal quality for each position. Then injuries or loss of form are less of an issue.

We did pretty much nothing during the January window. How could the owners allow this to happen? Who is driving this bus? That is the real problem.

And then we have this obsession that only players or managers with Premier League experience are worth considering.

Tell that to Darwin at Liverpool. Who had heard of him in England? Only those who watch continental football.

We need to have scouts all over the place, particularly in other countries’ second divisions. That is where young bargains can sometimes be found.

Until we have a proper Director of Football and an attack-minded coach we are going to be spinning our wheels.
