Yesterday's Men

Postby prophet:marginal on Fri Aug 10, 2018 10:32 pm

Working backwards, so far as I can tell, our club's only previous coach, presently working with a club is, remarkably, Avram Grant, of all people, and he is a 'technical advisor' in India

Moyes, Bilic, Allardyce...

[Grant]

Zola, Curbishley, Pardew

Roeder

Redknapp.

All on the rock and roll!


What does that say about West Ham?

I'm guessing someone might panic into calling for Sam, at some stage this season, but even Slaven seems unlikely to be working again in the Prem. The Boleyn was a managerial graveyard :lol:

Fair point.

Was that bibs, or cones?

But still, that's pretty thin fare, all told.

Curbs court case against his employers guaranteed he wouldn’t manage again.

Last season after Jan the bottom half was full of the old boys called in to avoid the drop. - Sam likes to bang his drum about foreign managers preventing young English managers coming through, personally. - I’d say it was equally if not more his crowd.

I can see Slav taking a championship club if he’s happy in the Uk

Stick Les Sealy in goal and Brooking floating, and I think they call that Total Football.

first decent manager we have had since redknapp all those years ago forgetting his dodgy dealings \! then Lyall and greenwood.

Pellegrini will hopefully lay the foundations for our club to reach the next level.

brady thinks having a large screen and a toilet bowl full of non fans is the next level!

I want west ham to be competing for top 4 and all cups that is our next level.

Wasn’t bilic wanted back end of last season (stoke maybe) but turned it down?

Slav will get another job, Dudley will get another gig if he wants one, same with Moyes.

wish slav well as met him and a real gentleman . plus he gave the Boleyn a great send off.

fat sam will get a gig in January to top up his pie allowance.
Pardew wont be seen in premier league again

after Pellegrini I think we should look at eddie howe at Bournemouth. time for him to step up and he will have the experience in the league. young English man at the helm would be so good.

With the amount of compo paid to our ex managers, they probably dont need to work!

I seem to remember Curbs on the sidelines at Fulham a few seasons back and was shocked to see it. :shock: Can't recall now who their manager was at that time, but he was there in some sort of back room capacity. It didn't last long, however and he has since reverted to obscurity once again. As for Pardew, he is totally ****ed at the top level, but he might be OK for some League 1 club with lofty ambitions

Don't even see Curbs on Sky Sports these days. Too many dickhead 'expert pundits' on there now for him to get a look in I guess.

Pards has had plenty of jobs since leaving us, and will most likely manage again. As will the large one from Dudley later in the season when someone gets desperate.

Bilic will also be back, as most likely will Moyes.

Curbs of course dug his own grave as mentioned above.

That was with Fulham, Puff, with I believe Meulenstein (sp) and maybe Ray Wilkins.

It's a very sorry list - at least we have someone to be proud of now (although we haven't kicked a ball in anger yet).

There is a legend missing from the list though - Sir Trevor of Brooking: stepped in when Roeder was ill and performed pretty well IIRC. That is a really **** list though, Roeder, Grant, Zola, Curbs, BFS, Moyes - very dark days. Very best of luck MP :scarfer:
