Brooking enters the fray

West Ham's executive director and former player Trevor Brooking could be encharged with helping the club avoid relegation, it has been revealed.

Brooking - who, as regular readers of KUMB will be aware - was originally linked with Roeder's position back in January of this year. He is thought to be willing to help out in a managerial capacity during Roeder's absence.

Speaking this morning, the former England star revealed:

"Nothing has been decided and the speculation that I have been asked to take over is prematured. The press regarding Glenn Roeder was still being resolved on Tuesday and it was too soon for us to make any decision.

"The board will meet later today and then we can talk about what to do. We will have to wait and see how those discussions develop before talking about whether I will be helping out in any way."

Assistant manager Paul Goddard and reserve team boss Roger Cross have been taking training sessions since Roeder was hospitalised on Monday evening, and were strongly rumoured to be taking over whilst the 47-year-old boss remains out of action.

Brooking, who has no managerial experience (in a footballing capacity, at least) told KUMB last year how he regretted never taking his chance as a boss.
