According to reliable West Ham insider ExWHUemployee via West Ham News, Manuel Pellegrini and his players had a heated conversation following the loss to the Magpies on Saturday, a debate that was needed to get to the bottom of what went wrong on the pitch and to seemingly find answers for the Hammers’ poor form in recent weeks.
The bombshell was unsurprising news to West Ham fans on social media, who believed that this latest piece of information could set in motion the events that could see Pellegrini leave the club within the next few weeks, with some supporters claiming that the former Manchester City manager has completely lost the changing room.
Here’s what some West Ham fans had to say about the reported heated debate between the manager and squad, with some Iron supporters believing that it’s time for the club to find a replacement for Pellegrini…
If this is true it is a major sign he has lost the confidence of the players… time to find a replacement!

Why did MP assemble the slowest squad in Premier league history?
Why have we conceded goals from set pieces every week for 2 years running but still not done anything about it?

If we have reached this point, I think because the players no longer follow Pellegrini and no longer believe in him
