West Ham United face a crucial remainder of the Premier League season as they aim to avoid relegation from the top flight. Right now, they sit 16th in the table after slumping to defeat to Sheffield United at Bramall Lane as David Moyes tasted defeat for the first time in his second stint.
New manager Moyes had made an instant impact for the Hammers, with a crushing 4-0 win over Bournemouth, but failed to back that result up. Alarmingly, they’ve won just three of their previous 15 league games, a disastrous run of form that eventually cost Manuel Pellegrini his job as manager.
Pellegrini isn’t the only senior figure to have departed the London Stadium this season, with Director of Football Mario Husillos also leaving the club when the Chilean was dismissed, with the Sun suggesting those behind the scenes at the London Stadium were dismayed at the type of signings a man of his reputation had come up with.
Now, a former West Ham employee reports on Twitter that the club won’t move to replace Husillos before the end of the season, if at all.
A new one won’t be appointed until the summer (if at all). For now it’s back to the old methods https://t.co/EBbGFnURKZ

Hammers fans didn’t react well to this news, here’s what some of them said:
Won’t need one in championship

I’d argue wed need one more than ever if we get relegated. Truth is the club will never improve under our owners. Their time is up.

Ah the old Gold and Sully strategy – if it’s broke, don’t fix it

We really are going backwards. Progression has stopped, and we’re a laughing stock again.

And those methods will see us relegated.
Sullivan hasn’t a clue in the transfer market it’s been proven time and time again.

One step forward and two steps backward. What a way to run a multi-million pound business.
