West Ham United are apparently looking to replace David Moyes with one of two managers if our current bad performance continues.
David Moyes has done wonders for West Ham since taking over the club for the second time in December 2019, so could the Hammers board seriously consider replacing him?
Hammers News was told just a few days ago that Moyes will be awarded a new contract, but is that certain regardless of the results?
The 60-year-old Scot has faced harsh criticism from some elements of the Hammers fanbase this season, despite the fact that we are currently in the top seven of the Premier League table and have safely advanced to the Europa League round of 16.
Some will say be careful what you wish for, whilst others will tell you that a new manager is needed at the London Stadium, if we are to consistently crack the top six and enjoy further success.
So if Moyes isn’t handed a new contract, who will the club look to replace him with?
West Ham looking at 2 managers to replace David Moyes
According to Sports Lens journalist Dean Jones, West Ham are prepared to offer Moyes a new deal that runs until the summer of 2026.
However, if the current bad run of form carries on, and supporter unrest continues, the Hammers board will not be offering the Scot any kind of deal.
Instead, they will look into appointing one of two managers – Paulo Fonseca or Michael Carrick.
The two managers, 50 and 42 respectively, are well-renowned for getting their teams to plays some scintillating football.
Fonseca and Carrick both deploy an easy-on-the-eye brand of possession based football – something that many West Ham fans are crying out for.
Moyes has overseen a special period during his time in charge of the Hammers, guiding us to three consecutive European campaigns and our first major trophy since 1980!
However, the general consensus is that the Scot has hit his ceiling, and can no longer take us forward as a club. In addition to that, the football that he implements is utterly dire and has no place in the modern game.
And if West Ham do decide to replace David Moyes, I would happily take either Fonseca or Carrick as the new manager.
However, positive change will not occur overnight. There will likely be numerous teething troubles along the road.
The fans must be patient with whoever takes over as manager after Moyes. Building a successful team with your own style and vision can be a lengthy and difficult process at times.
Hopefully, those calling for Moyes’ dismissal are prepared to endure some painful days until the light comes through in the end.
