David Moyes could be sacked from his role as West Ham manager and replaced by either Graham Potter or Igor Tudor.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the West Ham board are not happy with David Moyes, and could choose to bring in Graham Potter or Igor Tudor in place of the Scot before our Premier League opener against Bournemouth on Saturday.

However, Moyes steadied the ship at the London Stadium and went on to guide the Hammers to our first major trophy in 43 years.

Rather than kick on from there though, West Ham seem to have stood still. We’ve lost numerous key players and haven’t officially signed anyone yet (Edson Alvarez pending).

And it seems like the board are tiring of Moyes…

Bombshell report claims David Moyes could be sacked and replaced by 48-yo before Bournemouth

TuttoMercatoWeb dropped the bombshell today that Moyes could be sacked within the next five days, with Potter and Tudor being lined up to replace him.

I have been more than critical of the Scot over the past year or so. The brand of football that he deploys at the London Stadium is absolutely turgid.

We lost 20 Premier League games last season and there wasn’t any clear indications of progress…however…

Moyes is the only West Ham manager in my lifetime to guide us to a major trophy. And because of that, I find it incredibly hard to criticise him.

The truth of the matter though is that if we are to make genuine progress as a club over the next few years, Moyes really isn’t the man for the job.

Potter got his Brighton team playing some magnificent football, and despite his struggles with Chelsea I do believe that he’d be a great fit for us. He has experience in working with a technical director and would undoubtedly get the best out of the Hammers’ more technically gifted players.

Meanwhile, Igor Tudor is well renowned for deploying an attacking brand of free-flowing football at Torino. He is another manager who I think would really exit the fans.

However, I really can’t see Moyes being sacked before the Bournemouth game. That said, should we lose to the Cherries and fail to beat Chelsea the week after, the pressure will undoubtedly start to build on the Scot.
