Is Sheringham the Man?
Last week the inference was that Les Ferdinand could well be the striking coach the board has insisted Sam Allardyce brings into the club.
However, things seem to have moved on in the last forty-eight hours with it being insinuated that it will, in fact, be Teddy Sheringham who will take the role on.
Sheringham, who spent time as a Hammer has issued the following remarks relating to a possible appointment, remarking,
"I spoke to Sam and asked for a few days to think over it. It certainly appeals."
"The job is on a part-time basis, a couple of days a week and I`ll be on the bench for home games."
"The club is not far from me and one for which I have a lot of affection. I really enjoyed my time there."
"It is also a chance for me to experience the coaching side of the game, something I have never really done before. I would enjoy working with the front players."
Whilst Sheringham had a fine career as a striker, am I the only one concerned by a lack of coaching experience and the fact the former England international, now 48 years of age, is being fast-tracked with a two week coaching badge course in Ireland?
