No sooner had Chris Hughton been forced onto the managerial merry-go-round will he be tempted off it already, by Kings of Smut David Gold and David Sullivan. Yes, West Ham are ready to give up on the Avram Grant experiment as the East End club have hit rock bottom, both in terms of league position and recent performance.
And with rumours of Scott Parker’s departure to Spurs looking increasingly accurate, the situation can only worsen for those who forever blow bubbles.
So the money men at Upton Park have set their sights on Hughton as a replacement, less than a week after he was unceremoniously sacked by Newcastle. However, rumours are also afoot that Gold and Sullivan have identified Martin Jol, another managerial free agent from last week, as a potential successor to the Paul Bearer/Baron Von Greenback lookalike, Avram Grant.
Grant, a popular man in football hasn’t been able to produce any results out of his squad of misfits at West Ham and now looks as if he will finally pay the penalty.
But it’s now a tough job to save West Ham, is Hughton up to the task? Could Martin Jol do a better job? Is the managerial hot-seat at West Ham nearly as poisoned a chalice as at St James’ Park? And when will Avram Grant have that good nights sleep that he so desperately needs?
All will soon become clear.
