Come the summer, I'd like to see as West Ham head coach, from the following:
Xabi Alonso (very unlikely, but my first choice)
Thomas Frank (very unlikely)
Michael Carrick (possible)
Kieran McKenna (unlikely)
Graham Potter (maybe an outsider)
Will Still (unlikely)
Gary O'Neil (unlikely).
Who knows what the future may bring? I think any of these would do a good job.

Preferably I'd like to see new Manager in NOW! Give him the last 4 months of the season (which let's face it is over for us now because we not winning Europa League) to find his feet and sort out what players are excess to requirements.

Do you think there is any possibility Simon Jordan would like to take Moyes as Crystal Palace are in the mire and he has always praised him
We can only dream

I did suggest a week or two back that Palace might provide Moyes with an exit route. I can’t see any other Prem team taking him. We can only pray.

If we were to appoint a caretaker, we already have the perfect candidate - Johnny Heitinga.

Knowing our luck and our board. They will announce that David Moyes has gone to Palace and we can announce our new manager………. Roy Hodgson ?

Interesting post TinLegs

I personally want to see a manager brought in that not only changes the style of play, but gets the best out of the players we have whilst giving youth a chance to showcase their talents, and improves results. I know, not asking for much am I? Hahaha

XABI ALONSO - like you, is hands down my first choice. His Leverkusen team is easy to watch, plays youth, excites the fans, scores goals and let's face it is tearing up the rule book in the Bundesliga. This being said, I agree, this will never be anything more than a dream. Especially with the Liverpool and Real Madrid jobs being available in the Summer.

ROBERTO DE ZERBI - is without a doubt my second choice and someone I think is more realistic option than Alonso. However, whilst I think he is more realistic, I still can't see it happening. I can only see him leaving Brighton for a team already in the top 6.

THOMAS FRANK - is a great shout and if there is the possibility of him being interested, I would definitely explore it. I just don't see it though. I think he's building a legacy at Brentford and unless they give him the boot or a top 6 side comes in for him, I think he is there to stay.

PAULO FONSECA - seems to have been linked with us and every other Premier League club with aspirations to break in to the top 6 for the last 5 years. He favours a possession game and wants to keep the ball in the oppositions half, and I think we are closer to having a squad capable of this style of football than we have been for a long time. He had a better record at Shakhtar than De Zerbi, and has experience of managing teams in Portugal, Italy and France as well. I think he's my first realistic candidate in this list if I am being honest.

ARNE SLOT - sticking with realistic candidates now, I think Arne Slot is definitely worth a mention. His teams play attractive, attacking football and he reminds me a little of Martin Jol.

MICHAEL CARRICK - I think is a very good option and a genuine candidate considering Middlesbrough look like an outside shot for promotion, so I think he'd be tempted by the bright lights of the Premier League. I can't quite shake the nagging feeling that whilst he'd change the style of play, I don't necessarily think he improve results. Middlesbrough aren't setting the world alight in the Championship.

KIERAN McKENNA - he is an interesting name to throw out there, and like Carrick I think is a very good option, but I thinkhis interest would be dependent on Ipswich and if they're promoted. Strangely, I don't have the same nagging feeling I have about Carrick.

GRAHAM POTTER - he did wonders at Brighton but didn't live up to the hype at Chelsea and completely failed to put his stamp on the club. I think he'd be a decent shout, but I can't shake the feeling his successes at Brighton were as a result of the club and not him?

WILL STILL - is definitely one for the future, but at this moment in time I feel there are better options we should consider.

GARY O'NEIL - improved Bournemouth and has improved Wolves. Likes to give youth opportunities and I suppose doesn't play an unattractive brand of football. However, this appointment just wouldn't excite me. Sorry.

{Ed001's Note - what about Conceicao or Amorim?}

Arne Slot was another of my choices several months ago, but somehow I don't think he's a realistic choice. There are several other clubs ahead of us for his signature. Isn't Fonseca involved in something which could stop him moving anywhere? I might be wrong, but I'm sure it's Fonseca.
Ed, forgive me, but I know nothing of the two names you mentioned.

{Ed001's Note - ok mate, just 2 I would expect to be under consideration.}

The reason SULLY keeps giving DD 2 games then 4 games is he is straining to give DD a new contract as he's a premier league keeper in the league and its MONEY for SULLY the man is spineless and a lech.⚒⚒⚒

This hype around Potter. Was he really that successful at Brighton? Really? The highest he ever finished was 9th, the 6th place finish they got was after De Zerbi took over.

He never made any inroads in any of the cup competitions either, I think the 5th round of the FA cup was the best he got.

I know there's a lot of noise for Potter in some circles but to be honest I'm very far from being convinced that's he'd be good enough to get the best out of our current squad. I mean, he'd probably be better than Moyes but would he consolidate us in to a consistent top 6 side? I'm not so sure.

I would take O'NEILL as whenever I've seen them they play high energy attacking football and he can bring CUNHA With him as he will not be a wolves player next season he's got SPURS written all over him for me unfortunately.⚒⚒⚒
