Wow, just wow.

Fair play to the owners for bagging that one.

As ever it could all go horribly West Ham - but this feels like a big (unexpected) step up. He's got some hard work ahead of him to improve the balance of our squad and you'd like to think he's signed on the basis of having a reasonable budget to use on achieving that.

If he is backed by the owners (and fans) this should turn out to be an outstanding appointment. Welcome Manuel. :crest:

Welcome Mr Pellegrini, I sincerely hope you do well.
(Don't take any crap off Sullivan!)

A new beginning? We can only hope.

Welcome, Manuel. It will be interesting to see what you can do with a £6m transfer budget.

With him being a south american, does this class as a Sully special?
Top level manager, buzzing with the news!
Also got to be a new home shirt leak! Looks like the everton template from behind.

Looks like he’s holding up the new shirt, old shirt is in the managers desk photo.

Credit where it’s due to Sully, good manager with a decent record. Whisper it quietly, but he’s going to take us to the next level

Genuinely made up at this. As much as I never thought it would happen I have to say well done Sully. Could be the start of something exciting.

All we need now is a healthy transfer budget, new training facilities, less PR nightmares, respect between owners and fans, redesign of the matchday experience and a complete refurb of the stadium and we could really go places.
