Is the West Ham job a poisoned chalice for managers?
With Turds still floating around hoping for a job and Zola, despite his brilliance, still out of work, it is beginning to look as if managing West Ham is something of a poisoned chalice. Pardew appeared destined for a great future, until Eggert knifed him, and subsequently has found himself slipping down the divisions. Roeder, of course, has been a disaster where ever he has been employed, and if you go back to Macari and Bonds, their time managing West Ham effectively ended their managerial careers. Even John Lyall struggled when he resurfaced at Ipswich.
Only 'Arry has managed to carve out a successful career after leaving the Boleyn. He is not everybody's cup of tea but you have to wonder where we might be now, had he been left in charge.
In Administration probably!
Can Avram survive the curse or will his stint with us go the way of all the others?
