    The Never Ending Story

    Saw this on another WHUFC site, thought it worth a share .

    IS RONALD KOEMAN IN THE FRAME?
     By S J Chandos      18 May 2014 
    The Sports Mirror has reported that Ronald Koeman, the former Dutch international and current Feyenoord boss, may have entered the frame to replace Sam Allardyce at Upton Park. The report further maintains that the board are also likely to sound out David moyes about the position, while keeping a watching brief on Gus Poyet’s position at Sunderland. The strong inference of the peice being that the current ten day hiatus is being utilised to approach potential successors and determine whether the club can secure a manager who is a clear improvement upon the current incumbent. If not, then it is still possible that Sam Allardyce could remain in position for another season, although with radically revised performance indicators and less independence over the club’s transfer strategy.
    Amongst Hammers supporters, both David Moyes and Gus Poyet will have their advocates, but it is the name of Ronald Koeman who is likely to be greeted with the greatest interest. He has proven experience in European football management, having also previously been in charge at Ajax, PSV, Eindhoven, Benfica and Valencia. Moreover, it is believed that Mr Koeman is actively looking to make a move to the Premier League. And he is a manager that will both adopt a stylish passing game and place an emphasis upon developing our Academy products. Things that are self-evidently an high priority for most Hammers fans. While the recent story in the Sports Mail is most probably true that West Ham’s board have grown increasingly concerned at the damage to the club’s unique reputation, for producing both quality football and footballers, that has occurred during Mr Allardyce’s period of management. His replacement by Mr Koeman could be seen as an effective antidote on both scores.
    Mr Koeman is most definitely the type of manager that the board should be looking to in order to facilitate a stylish transition to the Olympic Stadium and take the club on to the next level or two. Gus Poyet is an interesting managerial candidate, David Moyes is undoubtedly a save pair of hands, but it is probably Ronald Koeman, of the three, that really captures the imagination!
    p.s. Kumb have strongly suggested that David Moyes is the board’s priority target, but that they may have also sounded out Rafa Benitez. Many fans, given the choice, would still prefer to go for Ronald Koeman, if he is available? But nevertheless, it is very encouraging for the club to be linked with managers of that calibre.
    p.p.s Another manager currently being linked with West Ham is Steve McLaren. If the managerial change is to be made, then the next appointment has to be absolutely right! Is Mr McLaren the right appointment? I have my doubts.

    Would love to see him back at the club in some capacity, think his best role would be as the leader of the newly reformed I.C.F........Italian Crazy Firm !!!
