Sullivan Admits Hammers Appointment is a Gamble

Sullivan Admits Hammers Appointment is a Gamble

With David Moyes now firmly in charge of West Ham United, following the axing of Slaven Bilic, on Monday, the next few months should be interesting.

Moyes arrives at our club with a reputation as a decent manager, having carved out his reputation during a decade in charge of Everton.

However, his recent managerial excursions in the Premier League have ended disappointingly. The Scot was axed by Manchester United and, last season, was in charge of a Sunderland side that were relegated from the Premier League.

But has he become a bad manager overnight?

That is something we`re about to find out.

However, announcing the appointment, David Sullivan has been brave enough to admit, in the popular red-top publication, the The Sun, the appointment is a gamble, remarking,

"This is a gamble but let`s see where we are at the end of the season. I believe he will keep us up.

"I have promised him nobody else has been lined up, that we have not signed another manager for next season.

"This is his job and he has to grab it. It is a big chance for him.

"You don`t do what he did at Everton for ten years and become a bad manager — he is a good manager."

I hope you are right David because we were led to believe the move to the Olympic Stadium was to herald the start of a new era for the club, but not in the Championship.
