West Ham board united over Pellegrini

West Ham’s board are backing manager Manuel Pellegrini by providing a united front confident that he and his squad will turn things around this season.

Speaking exclusively to Claret and Hugh via email a senior club insider told us this afternoon: “We need to present a united front, the board believes in the manager, they believe in the squad  and they are confident they will work hard and turn it around.”

While supporters confidence is at an all time low for the  under fire 66-year-old Chilean gaffer after a run of no wins in five games, club insiders insist the board are entirely disinterested in cutting Pellegrini’s contract short with over twenty months left to run.

The board want and are ready to show maximum faith in the manager by honouring his contract and not criticising the recent down turn in form because they fully expect him and the squad to turn things around.

  1. I don’t think he can turn it around personally, am frustratingly already resigned to another poor season, after a ‘small’ step forward last year, rather than calling for his head.

    I worry about who they would replace him with anyway, they are old and extremely old fashioned, so doubt we’d get the modern manager we need.

    Even when they tried Billic it was clear he wasn’t really their man. I think the guy had to cope with a lot during the stadium move, the supporter unrest, the false promises, and the Payet saga. If he had been given the same level of support by the board (and their dopey kids), financially and publicly, I think we would be in better shape now.

  2. Well fair enough. It could happen but it is the lack of anything much to cling to that’s the worry. The injury list isn’t at its normal level. We can’t blame bad luck, poor refereeing etg if the next six weeks is as bad as October (& we have had most of the ‘easy’ games) & we have a couple more home defeats with the ground emptying after an hour.

  3. Come on people this West Ham, we lose to the ****e teams and beat the better ones.
    Wouldn’t it be boring if we won every week!

  4. OMG give him a break every single time something goes wrong it’s the manager , Moyes, Bilic , Allardyce , redknapp and countless others. The players have a job to do and they would do it better if they and the manager stick together . Plus was it not obvious in the Summer after letting all the strikers go we needed another quality striker , CDM and LB . Alas no the owners splashed about 25-256 net which in never enough to keep improving when every other team can spend that and more . So managers fault think on and be careful what you wish for. The players and manager will work at it together , Pelle’s record speaks for itself . COYI ⚒

  5. I’m not blaming Pellegrini for this poor run,although I am a little bemused at times with his team selections and substitutions.I believe this is all down to the players we’ve got and the players we need,which is down to the owners,who by the way are not from the middle east or China.We all know that better players will improve the team,but how do we not know that a couple of youngsters involved in the 1st team might well put a rocket up those players arse’s who think they only have to turn up to play.Competition breeds success.
