WHO Poll
Q: Manuel Pellegrini
a. A great signing for the Club and maybe the change of direction we all need
b. It will only be a great signing if the Board back him with decent funds
c. This is West Ham so it will only end in farce
d. I'm not sure about this one, I'll wait until SKY is back to hear what Gary Neville thinks, then I'll voice my opinion

"Ideally, Bilic should pick his own successor."

You serious? That's a wonderfully romantic/WHU idea, but Bilic is most likely to pick someone who sees the players as he does. Who will thus make the same mistakes.

Or it will be someone who feels pressure from being "Bilic's man" and not make any hard decisions at all.

Ferguson was very keen on Moyes, wasn't he? That went well, didn't it.

Relegation next year again is it?

Has anyone mentioned he was at the Arsenal game the day before ?

I feel there is more chance he will be the new Arsenal Manager than the next West Ham Manager.

After all I would imagine that Arsenal would have a bigger budget than us and a better starting off point. Would think that it would be easier to get Arsenal to win a title than it would to get us into Europe

Well we were not alone. All the old gits I sit with were wondering why he had not gone for 5 in there after the 0-5 drubbing and the need to stifle City's build up. It may not have affected the result but may have made it feel like a game and not a training ground routine of "Piggy in the middle"?

Naive at best. Its the lack of tactical adjustment or time it takes that suggests Bilic is either too slow to realise, just not tactically astute enough, listens too much to his assistant or is insane (repeating a failed approach and expecting a different outcome) :-)

Sir Alf...
I said the same about 442 on the match thread as soon as the line up was posted...

Bilic got it wrong...and didn't change it...

No problem with 451 at home against the TOP teams with quality players...

I thought they were impressed with his tenure at Chelsea but yes this Portugese fella might be another Grant but his track record at poorer clubs is decent.

For now, lets see how Slav shapes up . Did worry that he did not see the need to play 5 in midfield against City. Carroll and Antonio were starved of service as our 4 (2 if you count Noble and Ferghouli) could not cope with City's 4 and overlapping full backs.

Hmmmm... seems to have been successful at multiple clubs and in different leagues. We would be better to poach him IMHO.

Alf, sounds a lot like the reasons we chose Avram Grant...... that went ok didn't it?

The Hull manager is Portuguese, and has a very impressive track record.

You can't believe who would let him?

I am of course referring to Fan Power.

Re: Mancini Next...???
I have got an eye on this fella at Hull. Early days but there are signs he is "getting a tune" out of the weakest squad in the Prem after only a few weeks. It might be the "manager bounce" thing but he seems to be held in high regard in Europe. Mind you he's a frog I think? Maybe not a good fit for that reason? ;-)

He does fit the "Make a purse out of a sows ear" remit at West Ham though.

Re: Mancini Next...???
I wonder if Arsenal would consider him? Proven title and cup winner, they probably would.

But still some people here think he's not good enough for us. Probably the same people who said in the summer that Walcott and Oxlade Chamberlain weren't good enough for us

Re: Mancini Next...???
Funny he also went to see Watford, especially as they change managers every season. Didn't he take over from Materazzi at Inter? Maybe there is something in this.

saw a quote from Mancini saying he was impressed by the noise at the london stadium.............
someones after a job!!

Grant did it every year he managed in the premier league, and half of the years Mancini did it in Serie A were during the match-fixing years.

It's fine and well if you rate the man. I understand the arguments that he is a good manager. I don't rate him, and don't think he would do well with West Ham. I think we need someone who can do more with less as opposed to simply manage egos. It's just an opinion.

Don't rubbish Avram because neither of Mancini or Bilic have got a team to the Afcon final.

Lee Trundle 5:57 Fri Feb 3
Re: Mancini Next...???
Yeah, in places like Israel and Serbia. A massive difference compared to constantly doing in the Premier League and Seire A.

This record isn't a record of a charlatan:


You only have to speak to any Man City fan to see how highly they regard him.
