Pressure Mounts on Avram Grant
Many of the papers today are reporting that Avram Grant has warned his players that there will be no more excuses and it is time to start getting points from games. Ever the dour faced optimist Grant still thinks West Ham can climb up the table,
"There is time to recover but we need to change things and get points. I am sure we will do it. It won't be easy, but we can do it."
The Sun in an article headed "Board Set to Sack Grant" say that David Gold and David Sullivan will meet with Avram Grant this week. The paper claims that the "meeting is the first sign of a serious crack appearing in the relationship between Grant, who is on a four-year deal, and his Upton Park bosses."
Of course owners never meet with managers except when they are going to sack them. Hopefully the meeting might also cover how much money will be available for transfers in January and which players the board should be targeting.
On which note I have a feeling that the Blackburn game could be make or break time for Grant. If the owners are thinking of appointing a new owner then surely they will want to get someone in before the January transfer window.
