No More Freddie Ljungbergs

There’s a great article in today’s INDEPENDENT on the new managerial regime at West Ham. It all sounds incredibly positive. Do read it.

    At last it all makes sense !!!
    This made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
    We MUST trust the board now this is out in the open. Love it love it

    It’s not an offical statement or interview with the board. The board are making the right noises at the moment however that can quickly change.

    I must admit tough I prefer to read the statement with optimism.

    This is positive, great article, just wish more where written like this! Do you think Zola could coach Sears like he did Cole and bring him int he team?

    What a fantastic read. Many thanks for the link.

    It is heartening to read, and makes a mockery of what passes for journalism at the Daily Mail.

    My only regret is that the vast majority of Upton Park fans will be oblivious to this.

    Fantastic article.

    Echoes my earlier posts on my worries about a new chairman, and how I hope that now we have a professionally run club, we dont have a destabalising factor

    Graybo, agree, unbelivably annoyed Martin Samuel went there. He was fantastic writing for the times, and i read one from the Mail and its dumbed-down tripe.

    Makes for a superb read and is well supported by clear examples and direct quotes from Duxbury himself. Very positive!!

    Iain, very interesting and well written article. I hope the sensible approach doesn’t get de-railed as the pressure mounts on our bankrupt “billionaire” owner!
    I am not sure I’d like the Man City solution to our current financial problems its madness up North at the moment, they are panic buying for quick success IMO.
    On a different note ,very disappointed with bellamys attitude if that is the best he can do for us after coming back from long injury then good luck to him and lets get a good replacement with the money.

    A very interesting read. If it’s all true, and the way things are being conducted at WHU at the moment it would appear that it is, it gives me great hope for the future of our great club. It has been a pleasent change so far to listen to the rubbish the tabloids have been printing without our club tripping over itself to prove them right. So far WHU have conducted themselves very professionally, long may it continue. I had to laugh this morning when sky announced that Craig Bellamy was on strike. They then went over to their reporter on the spot and tried to get him to reiterate this ‘fact’ but he couldn’t and to be fair to him, he didn’t but basically said he didn’t know anything, classic stuff. I think we all knew CB carrys baggage and if he goes so be it, if he doesn’t want to play for us let him go. I’ll be sorry to see him go though. I love watching him play and if he is determined to leave then it’s a shame he could not show a bit of loyalty to the club that has stuck by him for so long through his injuries, but i will reserve judgement until something concrete is released from the club.
    Thanks for the link Iain. COYI

    Iain i read this yesterday, from someone called james who users the blog. I think it was a refreshing approach for west ham. I bit overdue, but things are looking good.

    Great article – so plain simple and obvious approach – Im positive that if its true it can deliver results – The real issue is can die hard hammers fans adapt and deal with the liklihood of progress and success which might just mean seeing no more than 2 or 3 faces from the academy as home grown talent good enough to play at prem level – and 12 or 13 other players who no one has ever heard of and whos name can be pronounced – I can live with it.

  11. HammersWest says:

    I also read it yesterday, and it’s the first straightforward positive explanation I’ve seen. Very reassuring. Why on earth they couldn’t have had a statement like that on the club website I don’t know. The fans would certainly have been reassured. Regarding Bellamy, very disappointed, I always knew he was trouble, but I so wanted him to do well here, aah me.

  12. brooking still the best says:

    It does sound good, i just hpe they get to strengthen the team with monies raised,. That will be the testing of the report

    Thanks Iain for pointing us towards a genuinely positive, interesting and (dare I say) optimistic article from the Independent. Good quality journalism and an excellent read as one Independent reader has said.

    Following the Hammers from down under, or anywhere, is hard enough without all the negative Daily Mail-style reporting predicting the imminent demise of the Irons. It’s great to hear of an overall “plan” to guide the team and hopefully this optimism will bring results.

    As this is my first comment on your website, I’d like to thank you Iain for your excellent blog.

    This is extremely positive and I just hope it isn’t a PR exercise.
    Like most readers of this blog I (usually a super optimist) am very cynical about anything that comes from Scott Duxbury.

    I remember being excited about Eggerts statements too!

    Tha fact that it is from “The Indepedent” is encouraging.

    Great article. “The Football Project,” is the start of something very positive for our club.
