As much as the phrase has been overused "west ham may need to be careful what they wish for" That's not to say getting rid of Moyes is the wrong thing to do, his position is completely untenable, but it's the fact that it is now in David Sullivan's hands as to who replaces him and this worrying!

While Sullivan has never been the most popular figure amongst fans, the protests against him and his fellow owners had stopped completely over the past few years, but he now risks going back to those dark days.

It is well known that Tim Steidten, Mark Noble, some of the people at the top and the majority of fans that the first choice is Ruben Amorim but they'd be happy with bringing anyone in that shows a bit of ambition. Unfortunately, according to reports, its not an ambitious manager that the club will be going for, but an unemployed one whose potential signing for the Hammers would allegedly benefit a certain Will Salthouse.

Any West Ham fan will roll their eyes at the name Salthouse - he is an agent who has been responsible in bringing many mediocre players to the club due to being close allies with Sullivan. AND Now, he is said to be pushing for his friend to appoint Julen Lopetegui, someone that would be a very unpopular replacement for Moyes.

If this is the case, then it is absolutely scandalous that Sullivan would POSSIBLY make the most important managerial appointment in the club's history to save himself money as well as to make Salthouse some. This isn't something fans should tolerate and that's probably why over 1000 people have already signed a petition against the Spaniard already. With this news though, things could soon get really ugly for Sullivan and, if it turns out to be true, rightfully so. Its the fans that should have their say and Sullivan should listen, but he wont.

It seems The West Ham Hierarchy have reservations about flick and fonseca as they have no managerial experience in the Premier league whereas lopetegui has!


1.) 29 Apr 2024 17:33:30
Pep, klopp, Mourinho, De Zerbi, Uni Emery, are just a few that didn’t have prem experience, although Lopetegui has he didn’t really do that well, but what do I know ?

2.) 29 Apr 2024 19:00:22
Yeah we went through this before when we chased Unai Emry and look how that's turned out. Personally I think it's just another BS Excuse from the board so when we don't get them and moyes stays on, we will all say "never mind, we tried"!

3.) 29 Apr 2024 21:49:55
Lopetegui's experience of the prem was a 37% win rate at wolves.

Let's be honest he's probably the cheaper option. That's why Sulli wants him, he's basically the Spanish Moyes with a more exotic sounding name. Sulli probably thinks we are daft enough to fall for it.

What I don't get is he penny pinches and doesn't like buying managers out of their contact, but if you get someone in that can develop youngsters and use the full squad we'd be a lot better off financially.

4.) 30 Apr 2024 06:27:27
Sullivan doesn;t work by common sense and what's the best going forward, its what's the best deal he can get. Exactly the same with players. Its not who we want but who he can get the best deal for every time, hence the scatter gun approach during every window



28 Apr 2024 14:57:38
David Moyes maintains his future will not be decided until the summer and said: "I've not had any communication at all. That is because we've already decided amongst ourselves that we would talk at the end of the season"

"There is a lot of speculation around, I understand that. But we need to get things right."

Quizzed on his thoughts on the names linked with replacing him, Moyes said: "I have to be honest, I haven't looked. I'm only getting told by people like you, or maybe people have phoned me up. "

"But I haven't gone out looking. As far as I'm concerned, we had an agreement we would speak at the end of the season."

In a separate interview Moyes said " The most important thing is that things would need to be right between me and the club. And if we get that right then we will see what happens but it will be at the end of the season."

"You can continue to ask me the questions and I'm happy to take them. But it's not as if I've changed track in any way. We've always said it will be made at the end of the season and as far as I'm concerned that will still be the decision."

"That's the way I see it and that's something that me and the board were happy to do (big mistake by the board ie SULLIVAN)


1.) 28 Apr 2024 23:31:48
Moyes admitted to being mystified why he had been asked to make the tea at the last board meeting and told to polish David Sullivan’s shoes. He also cannot understand why the manager’s office had been moved to a portacabin in the car park. Still, we all believe that no decisions have been made yet!

2.) 29 Apr 2024 12:47:41
What they mean by no decision has been made is .if we can't get anyone else you can stay moyes

3.) 29 Apr 2024 13:51:57
And just to back up what REDROBBO has said. Check this latest from CLARET and HUGH "West Ham joint chairman David Sullivan will sit down face to face with manager David Moyes before the end of May. West Ham play their last game of the season against Manchester City on Sunday 19th May so the meeting is scheduled to take place sometime between Monday 20th and Friday 31st May. Crucially club sources insist no manager has been offered the West Ham manager role for next season as the club honouring the existing contract of David Moyes until the end of June.

The board will not make a final decision until David Sullivan and David Moyes sit down face to face in May despite West Ham sporting director Tim Steidten drawing up a contingency list of managerial candidates to sound out managers availability and their desire to take the role if it becomes available.

The end of season review meeting will discuss whether there is appetite from both sides to offer a management contractual extension to the 61-year-old Scotsman.

A decision one way or another is expected to be made before the season ticket deadline on 3rd June.

I just wonder what Season ticket numbers will be like next year if they stick with MOYES, because as it stands its not beyond the realms of possibility and let's face it, this should alreayd have been resolved by now and everyone should know exactly what the future is going to look like



19 Apr 2024 14:26:28
Hmmmm reports coming out that we've offered contract to maurizio sarri?


1.) 19 Apr 2024 18:43:31
That's a Sullivan appointment. Luckily from what's been said and I suspect it's correct. Tuchel Silva Alexander blessin and Antonio Oliveira are way more likely.

2.) 21 Apr 2024 20:36:25
3 year deal offered to lopetegui

3.) 21 Apr 2024 22:45:41
Is it lopetegui or Sarri. You’ve written we’ve offered both contracts?

4.) 22 Apr 2024 04:03:55
What part of ‘rumours’ don’t you understand Mike?

5.) 22 Apr 2024 16:34:30
Well so far, according to reports, we have spoken to Sarri, Lopetegui, today Ruben Amorim and we are also interested in Marco Silva and Graham Potter, so the usual scattergun approach with nobody firm in mind! I might have to SPELL this for Brooking10!

6.) 22 Apr 2024 16:55:58
I think the massive buy out clause for ruben amorim will be easily enough to discourage Sullivan!



19 Mar 2024 19:44:37
Man utd are interested in paqueta and would like to use Harry Maguire in part of the deal. If moyes stays this could happen!


1.) 20 Mar 2024 05:40:11
I can really see that tempting west ham . How do these newspapers dream these stories up . Yet people will fall for it .

2.) 20 Mar 2024 09:05:30
LMAO. You know something, It would not surprise me with DAVID MOYES and how he loves his MAN UTD has beens if their is actually an element of truth In this and we are stoopid enough to fall for it.

3.) 21 Mar 2024 14:31:51
And Maguire will be played as a defensive midfielder, as Moyes tries to fit four in. lol

4.) 06 Apr 2024 17:28:38
Oh is that all surely he could experiment with sitting one behind the striker too lol ?

Clearly we need full backs so I'd really like us to go back in for yukinari sugawara from Alkmaar who moyes apparently stopped a move for in January and focused on Philips instead.




05 May 2024 19:24:56
Find and sign the petition against lopetegui everybody and spread the word


1.) 06 May 2024 10:10:31
Too late, West Ham United agree terms with Julen Lopetegui to become new manager

2.) 06 May 2024 10:25:54
Too late, I fear.

3.) 06 May 2024 10:36:01
Whilst your intentions are appreciated, by 99% of fans on here, media are behind, the timeline, Sloppy Loppy signed up on Friday, only Sullivan is yet to finalise, (which is expected Tuesday / Wednesday) and announced later …….all betting has been refused since, Friday noontime, which underpins this post, It doesn’t appear that one single supporter wants this man, BUT let’s hope we are wrong, on a positive note, after yesterday how much worse can it get .? Tim. Steidten wanted a five year plan, to make us a top six club, well he’s now got that brief over to you Tim, he will be able to work with Loppy and Noble, unlike Moyes there will be no problems there, they are already at it , could be some surprise signings to come, we have to hope for a turnaround

4.) 06 May 2024 10:46:17
If it is to be Lopetegui then there’s no point keep moaning about it, we’ve just got to get behind him and support him.

5.) 06 May 2024 19:46:28
Joyful, course Steidten wants a 5 year plan, he’s not bloody stupid, 5 year contract earning a fortune and can do sweet FA for a few years then say well I did did say 5 years, what an insult to the fans! Sully must be a p—— to fall for that but he ain’t a stupid man to be worth what he’s got! Sorry but been around to long and too much of a cynical xxxxxxx??⚒⚒⚒⚒⚒



05 May 2024 15:38:39
Lots of our fans have left already. This is going from bad to worse. The only way SULLIVAN WILL SIT UP AND TAKE NOTICE IS IF ITS REFLECTED in season ticket sales!


1.) 05 May 2024 18:59:48
How did you feel, Oshee? Where we were sitting the feeling was ‘season over, May as well let Moyse finish the season, but needs to go now’. How did the fans feel where you were sitting?

2.) 05 May 2024 21:59:20
Pretty much the same Brooking.disappointed, frustrated and a little let down. Some were angry with the whole fiasco over the manager situation. At least have the decency to let moyes go out with a bang next week



05 May 2024 15:12:21
It is reported that Milan fans are much more receptive the idea of hiring Fonseca than lopetegui the same as we are at West Ham.

Now Sullivan is painted into a corner and faces possibly the biggest decision of his tenure.

Does he show some real ambition by paying the release clause for one of the most coveted young managers around?

Or does he opt for the free agent nobody wants, who will arrive under instant pressure to get results and play a noticeably better style of football?

Because with Fonseca now looking out of the equation and potentially going to milan, it seems the only two options left open to the majority owner are between Ruben Amorim and Julen Lopetegui for West Ham but it all hinges on one big decision!


1.) 05 May 2024 16:47:04
Osh can you seriously see this young Portugeezer wanting to come to West Ham with our owners and the shambles we have become. I hope you are right, but I can’t see it ?



28 Apr 2024 14:27:39
Why is it Liverpool have already nailed down the manager for next season and yet we still ponder, consider, mull etc and are not expected to make a decision until during the summer. Why?


1.) 28 Apr 2024 17:47:41
Sightly different situation O’Shea. They have a manager who announced his intention to leave months before the end of the season. Yet we have a manager who if he had any sense would have announced his departure at the end of last season. We now have the indignity of a man clinging on with his finger tips and a chairman who can’t face having to pay someone’s contract 2 months early as it may cost him!
Also, let’s face it Liverpool have a bit more pull than we do. Sad but true…….

2.) 28 Apr 2024 18:17:18
I am glad we do not have Slot. His managerial trophy run started with the Conference Cup, and then lead him to further glory once money was injected and clubs cherry picked from Ajax. I do not think he will be a success.
As long as a new manager is announced shortly after the season finishes that would be good ownership, not before for us.

3.) 28 Apr 2024 19:51:09
Great sensible posts you guys. Fingers crossed in the summer we make the right decisions

Humble Pie in the oven lol. I must admit I didn't like the idea of lopetegui however, I'm beginning to warm to him. With Flynn Downes and Freddie Potts returning from excellent loan spells plus outstanding Academy products added to the mix it promises to be a very different squad and playing style to the tired, dreary output we have seen in 2024 and i'm really encouraged by all the good things I'm hearing. Players we are being linked with moyes would never have dreamed of entertaining at west ham so it's good to hear and long may it continue

Hmmmmm very very busy already lining players up which is refreshing to hear. En nesyri being targeted. Downes told he has a future with west ham nice to hear. Lots going on already

Hey Joyful, thanks for the insight. I think we can all agree this clear out has been well overdue. We have players that are either past their best or not up to the grade and it will be nice to see if lopetegui is ruthless and cuts them. He has always had midfielders who are gifted play makers and comfortable on the ball so Soucek is a gonner. Paqueta will go city. Antonio, Cresswell, ogbonna and zouma will go. Clearly he will keep bowen and kudus and build around them

Yup Ham-Eggs-Chips but if they want lopetegui to succeed they got to back him. Give him whatever money we get from sales and let TS work his magic cause some gems out there waiting to be uncovered

On the back of that I reckon this summer we need to sign the following: LB RB CB CB CM AM LW and at least 2 CF's if Ings and Antonio leave. With Downes and Earthy and some youth we should be ok to start with

Good call, should've had a bet on it Brooking lol ? looking forward to a very encouraging complete overhaul in the summer. En nesyri for Antonio is a no trainer.

I think what Daisy is saying is that it could have been conducted a bit mire professionally by a so called professional football club. Yes we want moyes gone but tge way it's been done could have been done better
