I think we are all forgetting Alan Pardew managed West Ham in European football. That’s 4 names on the list!

It was never going to be Emery, it is definitely not Benitez for financial reasons and therefore the best we can hope for is Pellegrini or Ranieri.

Said in the most sarcastic way possible... I can’t wait for the season to start! For what it’s worth, Benitez would have been top of my list

I'll be very disappointed if its pellegrini. I probably shouldn't be but I've just got a bad feeling about that one.

Agreed.

Would be an awful Manager for WHU imo. Would be gone within 18 months.

I'm sure after the Moyes statement they said there would be no further comment until a manager was in place, so barely a day later they trap off again. Incredible.

You're not the only ones. I just can't see it working with Pellegrini.

You can bet whoever it ends up as has been sold the big investment in the team whopper. Wonder if the fancy astro-turfed sprint facility at Rush Green has won them over as well? :)

It's like they don't know what they're doing or something.

Getting it done before season ticket renewal deadline? It must be good.

One thing they have never had since they bought us was a plan..so when they release a statement saying "dont panic its all going to plan" makes me even more concerned and when they scramble around they will say its who they wanted all along, hope im wrong.

Seeing as the likes of Emery, etc are out the window sadly then my choices out of the supposed front runners would be Benitez by a country mile over Pellegrini and Ranieri.

In true Sullivan style, it will be Christian Gross.

In much the same way as 'next level' turned out to be in a downwards direction, this proven track record could turn out to be a proven poor track record.

When we announced Moyes had departed...

Sullivan and Gold releasing that statement saying “everything is fine (honest)” is the equivalent of you having a house party as a kid when your parents are away, speaking to them on the phone the next day saying everything’s okay whilst surrounded by empty beer cans, broken lamps and your mate Dave has **** on your living room rug. West Ham, where dreams used to fade and die, now they don’t even get going.

Could that statement still mean Marco Silva?

Despite the positive nature of the statement, I thought exactly the same :lol:
