Grant Sacked

The West Ham owners have acted swiftly to try and avoid relegation ... oh no wait ...

West Ham has released a short statement saying,

"The club can confirm that Avram Grant is no longer the manager of West Ham United.

First-team coach Kevin Keen will take charge of the team for the final home match of the season against Sunderland on Sunday 22 May."

The statement doesn't say whether Grant has resigned or sacked. Recent comments by Grant saying that he wouldn't resign presumably means that he was fired. The statement from the club is pointedly devoid of any thanks for Grant's 'service' to West Ham.

We had the players, didn't have the manager. The gang of 3 are resposible for that. Dumb to appoint him, dumb to keep him in January.

Grant is getting most of the blame for this, deservedly so as its his team to pick. But what an underperforming bunch of wasters we have, relegation is the best option with the 8th highest wage bill in england and the leagues shittest performers.
Hopefully keep hold of some of the better youth prospects and build from there.

Big thing is who we get in now. If allardyce or Warnock are thought of, it would take alot to show the same amount of support for the team on match day..

Get Di Canio in now, give him a chance at championship level and give him a good number 2 like steve clarke was for Zola.
Di Canio has all the right mentalities for a great manager.

look on the positives, we dont have to sign Robbie Keane now :)

Too many players under-performed,but Grant ultimately caused this. His tactics,team selection and motivational skills were all lacking. The club needed a much stronger manager who could impose discipline - had Grant been replaced in January this club would have stayed up.

The constant chopping and changing in all areas of the pitch did not help. The most frustrating thing is that it should not have come to this. It was totally avoidable ,had the board changed the manager in January

To be 2 goals ahead after 55 minutes ,and unable to see a game out when you are fighting for your survival sums up Grant as a manager. Very nice guy,but totally out of his depth as a manager.

Mark Robbins left Barnsley at the same time. Any coincidence? Ah no Barnsley have no money too..

Three comments.
There was a rumour months ago that Grant could be sacked without compensation if we were relegated.
Is that what Sugo have been waiting for?
Also, how come Paul Groves isn't handling the team on Sunday? Has he gone too?
Please tell me that we won't have to suffer the Wally with the Brolly?
That would be just taking the p*** out of us.

Is it true AG was sacked BEFORE the game?

What a nightmare!
Eintracht Frankfurt relegated,
West Ham relegated...
The parallels between both clubs are remarkable.
We'll be back!

The team and manager deserve this relegation. I just hope we have enough quality in the squad to have a quiet rebuilding season next year. Every one will want to kick bits out of us on the pitch. It could be a hard season.
