West Ham are floundering in 17th without a win since September, and there are rumours that Manuel Pellegrini is under pressure from the board. TalkSPORT Drive were discussing the situation and Adrian Durham claimed the Cowley brothers, Nicky and Danny, would be a great fit for the job.
They took over at Huddersfield Town in September, with the team 23rd at the time, and Durham notes they’re on a run of four wins, five draws and one loss. Their previous managerial achievements have been impressive too. In their time at Lincoln City, they took the club from non-league football into League One and made them the first non-league team to make the FA Cup quarter-finals for over a century.
Adrian Durham asked: “Why aren’t the Cowley brothers in the Premier League?” and claimed “They’re [West Ham] fans. They’re made for West Ham aren’t they?”. A clip of the discussion was posted to the radio station’s Twitter page and fans were eager to agree with the host and suggest they’d be a great fit for the Hammers.
“Why aren’t the Cowley brothers in the #PL?” 🤔
“I’ll tell you why. It’s because they used to be teachers and they’re from Essex.”

100 % Correct Ade.
Howe-Dyche-Etc. Potter not achieved anywhere near the Cowley’s and gets a 6 year deal in the Prem it’s great to see that young ENGLISH managers are getting opportunities. It’s only a matter of time before they have that chance,maybe with Huddersfield next year
