Peaches - Kovac is a great shout (as are most managers and signings that you usually suggest), the thing is, do GSB have the imagination to even think of him? I feel like they’d only go for someone who’s managed in England previously.

Isn't about time Sullivan gave himself the job.

Sullivan with Brady would be my number 4 pick

Sitting here watching the Villa / Wolves game, not only are Wolves playing some super stuff, I find myself asking, if we had Espirito Santo managing us, you would reasonably expect us to play like them, breaking from deep, fast sweeping passing movements through midfield, with players making runs into the opponents box. But would we ? Would we still play the same utter slow, turgid rubbish

Why would I joke mate??? Who would you go for mate knowing our owners are cheap skanks and always shop in lidl.
Not them losers for sure. The owners have always been the problem - but they're upholding a great West Ham tradition of badly running a club. It can be done properly with the right owners, you only have to look at Leicester to see that but it'll never happen to West Ham, not with this lot. You only have to look at their underhand tactics of trying to rinse the fans for even more of their hard-earned cash to see that as well as the whole Snodgrass saga (who as it happens turns out to be one of our best at the moment). Don't even get me started on the signing of Wilshire.

They can be cheap skanks all they want, but until they realise that you cannot go cheap in the Premiership we'll always be in this situation. I think no matter who we get in as manager, we'll always be second-rate with these jokers.

Pellegrini seems to have lost the plot. For whatever reason, we only seem to be able to counterattack rather than build up a chance. Since the Palace game our PL opponents simply suck us on to them and hit us on the counter. Whether that's early long balls of Burnley or fast attacking runners (Palace and Newcastle) we will give away free kicks, corners and chances aplenty.

Pelle doesn't seem willing to address this problem with a major tactical change. His main tweak is to play Noble either deeper or more advanced. And he seems to drop outfield players for the slightest underperformance; Ogbonna, Yarmolenko and Fredericks have all suffered as a result.

Playing bigger sides should give us more opportunities to counter, but I fear it is too late to turn our form around.

Im sure the midget has said previously they always go with someone with Premier League experience

based on current form, how does Yarmolenko get dropped in favour of Anderson ?

* & * the board say it's too expensive to sack him now but that in ten games time things may be reassessed.

I just want him gone and replaced with someone with some life and passion.
we have been awful since we left the BG . we have no home and now a bunch of wasters who don't care about the club.

we need to start again with a young hungry british core. so envious of Chelsea with there young English manager young English players and a team that is hard running and motivated. plus they have a stadium fit for football ! still hate the "£$%^& though !
Moyes was advocating building a British core, but people get more excited with flamboyant foreign names.

My god you are obsessed with David Moyes. It's getting somewhat unnerving. :arry:

Moyes football was dire risk adverse football.

It's probably why he isn't working at the moment.

The front line at West Ham isn't the problem it's the defence

They also say there isn’t an obvious candidate to replace Pellegrini: Clearly they know NOTHING about football, because Kovac, and Blanc are blatantly obvious to anyone whose football knowledge isn’t just the premier league
