West Ham United have had 11 various irreversible supervisors because the start of the Premier League in 1992– and also numerous of them actually have not been great in any way.
The overall increases to 13 if you consist of both caretakers assigned because time: Trevor Brooking taken pleasure in an unbeaten job which had not been adequate to ward off transfer in 2003, while Kevin Keen’s single game in charge 8 years later on featured the group currently condemned to the Championship.
We’ve taken a look at the 11 irreversible consultations, ranking them from worst to best based on exactly how well they executed in charge of West Ham.
11. Avram Grant
Well this was a catastrophe. Who would certainly have assumed appointing a man whose previous group had ended up base would certainly lead to your group … completing base.
Grant had not been aided by marquee finalizing Thomas Hitzlsperger missing more than half the season via injury, but he also had not been aided by his various other finalizings consisting of Pablo Barrera, Tal Ben-Haim, Wayne Bridge and also Robbie Keane.
West Ham were delegated after getting an awkward one point from their final 8games Perhaps also more embarrassingly, they acknowledged Conor Sammon’s single Premier League goal in Grant’s final game.
10. Glenn Roeder
There’s an disagreement for Roeder being lower of this list, having actually delegated a more skilled West Ham team. Certainly the decision to play Ian Pearce up front rather of real demonstrators was a reduced point.
However, he prevents that honour by merit of his first season really being respectable, also if it did begin with humbling defeats versus Everton (5-0) and also Blackburn (7-1).
Roeder incorporated Jermain Defoe right into the first group, won a league game at Old Trafford, gave Joe Cole the armband and also later on handed Glen Johnson his launching. Just a embarassment concerning exactly how everything finished.
9. Billy Bonds
Club tale Bonzo took the club back up to the Premier League and also kept them there in the 1993-94 season, but on the basis of that a person project there’s not all that much to state.
The season was … penalty, more or much less. At the very least on the pitch.
8. Gianfranco Zola
We wish we can place Zola higher on thislist We actually desired him to succeed, and also for one season we had the uncommon circumstance of a likeable manager and also a group of young skills really prospering on the pitch.
Jack Collison, James Tomkins and also Freddie Sears all played a loads times or more as Zola led West Ham to a top- fifty percent finish in 2008-09, but the complying with season was a catastrophe and also the club can not have whined if their final tally of 35 points had seen them delegated.
Even with all that, though, the Italian obtains a pair of incentive points for presenting the club to Alessandro Diamanti and also masterminding one of the best group goals in Premier League background.
7. Manuel Pellegrini
We initially released this ranking in April 2019, when we put Pellegrini and also said: ‘He might seem unfairly high for a man with one season under his belt, especially considering his predecessors’ record of starting well before fading terribly in their second season, but the Chilean’s very early progression really feels various.’
We actually ought to have known better.
6. David Moyes
Moyes was generated to keep West Ham United in the Premier League in November 2017, and also he did that.
Was it enjoyable?No Was it pleasurable?Rarely Did most fans despise every min of it?Absolutely But he did what he was generated to do, while transforming Marko Arnautovic right into a striker that some people could really be depressing to see leave.
Moyes was generated to keep West Ham United in the Premier League in December 2019, and also he did that.
Was it enjoyable? You get the image …
5. Alan Pardew
Yes, he led West Ham to an FA Cup final and also a top- fifty percent finish, but he also set the group on course for transfer in the complying with season before being sacked after a 4-0 defeat to a Bolton group that really did not win an additional game by more than 2 all season.
He also came close to bungling not one but 2 promo projects, inevitably creeping a 1-0 win versus Preston after leaving it late to also make the 2004-05 play-offs, counting on his previous club Reading shedding each of their last 3 games.
There’s an disagreement that he would certainly have kept points entering the 2006-07 project if he had a fit and also shooting Dean Ashton at his disposal. However, based on Pardew’s record at * checks notes * every various other club he’s handled because, that appears not likely.
4. Alan Curbishley
Curbishley is uncommon amongst those on this list because his time in charge finished better than it began.
He was able to recoup from humbling defeats to Charlton and also Reading to assistance West Ham get more points in the final 9 games of the 2006-07 season than they grabbed in the first 29.
His one full season was quite useful as well, bringing the high-end of mid-table obscurity and also the high-point of a goalscoring launching for Freddie Sears.
For a group which has actually invested much of the last 25 years sweeping in between exhilaration and also misery, nothingness was underrated.
3. Sam Allardyce
Allardyce will certainly never ever be way too many West Ham fans’ favorite, but he was generated to return West Ham to the Premier League and also keep them there, and also he did well.
He also kept the group out of problem for 2 of his 3 seasons in the top trip, though the collapse in the second fifty percent of the 2014-15 season was concerning as grim as they come.
West Ham were 4th at Christmas but won simply 3 more times before the end of the season, versus teams which ended up 16th, 19th and also 18th in the league.
Pretty unexciting, for certain, but it would certainly be remiss of us to neglect the reality that he did still take the group right into the top 4, through sway Liverpool and also Manchester City to name but 2.
2. Slaven Bilic
Bilic was the man that gave West Ham fans one of one of the most pleasurable seasons in living memory, which’s adequate to more than make up for some of the anguish the Croatian’s second and also 3rd projects.
West Ham were merely a happiness to watch in the 2015-16 project, with Dimitri Payet– offered his launching by Bilic– the primary orchestrator.
Sure, points trailed off the complying with season with a limp start to life at the London Stadium, and also the wheels endangered to diminish totally before he was replaced by Moyes.
That one season, however, is more than lots of will certainly accomplish in charge of West Ham United.
1. Harry Redknapp
Look, we do not like this any kind of more than you, but it’s tough to look past Knappsy for the number one area.
He took control of a West Ham group that had been back in the Premier League for simply one season and also dragged it progressively up the table over the course of numerous years.
The emphasize can be found in the 1998-99 season with a fifth-place finish, while Redknapp also brought Paolo di Canio to the club and also gave debuts to Joe Cole, Michael Carrick, Rio Ferdinand and also Jermain Defoe.
Sure, his period really did not end on the best of terms, but such a point has actually been tough to find with any kind of West Ham manager in the Premier League age.
