So it appears that the much heralded meeting of the West Ham board yesterday has not led to the replacement of Avram Grant as manager.
Sky Sports today report that West Ham talisman Scott Parker says the players are fully behind Avram Grant. Asked if the players were united behind Grant, Parker said,
"Yes, definitely. The lads are fighting as much as the gaffer is fighting. We're all in the same corner.
"We're all trying to do our best for ourselves, for the manager, for the club. The manager's got tons and tons of experience and he's doing a good job.
"If you believed everything you heard about this club, you'd be rather a stressed man. Avram's demeanour seems quite relaxed and chilled out and I think that filters down to the players."
The Daily Express suggest that Grant remains in place because Martin O'Neill does not want to manage West Ham.
They claim that West Ham have been informally told that O’Neill "has serious misgivings about whether the Hammers squad, who are bottom of the table, are strong enough to survive and doubts whether the club have enough money to achieve his ambitions."
The Express however say that Grant is still only just clinging onto his job and that the club are still considering Sam Allardyce or Chris Hughton as a potential replacement.
The Sun however claim that Martin O'Neill is still a West Ham target. They claim that if West Ham lose badly against Arsenal then the board will replace him.
They say that despite O'Neill's worries about West Ham's position he "remains desperate to get back into top-flight management and increasingly realises there may be few, if any, other job opportunities in the summer."
The Sun say that O'Neill is overwhelmingly the West Ham board's preferred replacement.
