Pellegrini not going?

it appears he's been given more time. usually when SSN announce a club is in 'a meeting' with their manager, the next headline is so and so has been sacked. Nothing of the such from us, so I'm guessing they told him to improve and that he has x number of games to do so?

I am all for standing by your manager and giving him time. However, modern football management has become far more about inspiring your players than anything else. yes, its sad that footballers today have to be 'encouraged' to give their all, especially in light of their pay. the old days when players simply knew it was a given that when they donned the shirt and went out to play, they must give it all ala Alvin Martin, Mad Dog, Dicks, Cottee etc.

today, a player will simply go through the motions if he isn't given a cuddle and told how great he is. there are also limits to how long the same manager can do that with the same players - ask Pochettino.

the point is however, Pellegrini isn't a young manager. he commands respect yes, but he appears to totally have lost the inspiration, energy etc of the players. in short, they aren't motivated to play for him or his system.

call it the players fault and I will agree, but sadly that is modern football for you. also, Pellegrini himself is on millions a year so what's his excuse for coming into work with a face like a doormat?

at the end of the day, you need an inspiring coach these days, you need energy in the training ground and then it transpires onto he field. Is Pellegrini capable? especially now that he seems to have lost any inspiration he had with the players? I don't think so.

so how long do we keep him? pretty sure our owners are 'standing by him' simply because the pay out to sack him is heavy but my view is he has to go, he's not a man who is suddenly going to become Mourinho or someone with some passion and energy is he?

That if we fall into the bottom three the board can fire El Pel without paying as much compo.....now that could be the only reason to keep him until after the southampton game because as we no with these owners they love saving a penny or two

It's interesting to see how Bournemouth are going. No win in six games I think it is. I wonder if Eddie Howe has taken his eye off the ball there. After constantly being linked with a move to a bigger club. Has he gone as far as he can go there? I'd welcome him with open arms at West Ham to be honest. But I fear we will go with a lesser option. Say Scott Parker, Lee Bowyer, Lee Johnson. One thing is for sure Pellegrini will be gone very soon, it's inevitable...

Eddie Howe has got a team with a lot of injuries at moment so i don't think he will leave or be sacked and any way why would he come to west ham with Arsenal looking !!!!!!

I think Howe has seen how others have fared when 'going to a bigger club'. the most likely scenario is that within 6 months to a year he's been sacked. theres no time to 'build' a team and culture, you have to do a Mourinho and win at all costs. for me the ideal man is Benetiz, but hes staying with his kung pow chicken and billion pounds an hour salary it seems.

what happens if by some miracle we beat Southampton tomorrow? does Pellegrini keep his job? if so, then how long? I really hope he turns it round starting from tomorrow but its just way too many flat performances to suggest it will last. I guess he realises its not good enough having seen him on the news the other day. lets see what he and his team serve up tomorrow then.

You think Pelle's team will get a point? Not unless his assistant does the set up, as he did in the Chelsea game.

Put the arms around the shoulder of anybody and I don't think that hurts sometimes. Never seen him go to an opposing match to see a team we got the following match. Never seen him play anything but 1 upfront even before the kick-off we were supposed to be 4-5-1 even when he goes to another club he will still be playing 1upfront because that is my philosophy he' s a dinosaur and he is not going to go till we lose to Gillingham
