International Managers

International football West Ham United
by Cor Blimey Guvnor (U1758559) 06 October 2006
comment on the article

The Argentinian coaches comments on Tevez and Mascherano are a total disgrace and he should be done by FIFA. Not that he will though.

Chelsea suffered a similar problem with the French coach Domenech over Makelele who requested to reitre from international football but was told the decision was not his !!

International managers should not be allowed to stick their nose into clubs business.

Thoughts ?

i think Tevez should play upfront as him best position is along the front line and not along the midfield or even left winger

Cor & Samuel, sorry boys I have to disagree again.
The rules clearly state that a representative of the/a club cannot directly approach a player. He represents no club.
Ok I don't agree with his comments but are they any worse than me saying "I want Rooney to join Arsenal"?
I do however believe that as a man in his position & probably an influential one at that he should show a little more respect for West Ham, that said he still should have no punishment & bar the moving club comment, I have to agree with what he said.

Kind of defeats the whole point of a 'CHAT FORUM'

Come on I'm not asking much really am I?
-------------quoted---------------

Its a message board, not a chat forum! If you dont like it, go elsewhere. Skysports have a forum.

As for this subject, sure hes allowed a view on his players, but I doubt he would be complaining if they were playing badly for ManU or another "socalled" big club!

Its bang out of order. Not that I feel sorry for the Hammers, there was always the risk of duff performances, but I think its more to do with the team and the fact that both players have come in and upset the balance.

I think that at some point either the rest of the team accepts them or they will be off. Its only a matter of time.

Good luck turning it around Pardew, but only after we smash 1/2 dozen goals past your team! :D

Lets all get something straight shall we. Both Argentinians are not at West Ham for their own choices. So of course both players are going to be off form and unhappy due to the fact that their agents told them to go there-not by their choice. Spanish league would've suited them better, but now unfortunetly, their reputations as the probable up and coming World Stars is being quashed. Not because of West Ham Utd, but because of money. We have to face facts, money is slowly taking over football

If Tevez has been playing on the left wing, where has Etherington, our left winger, been playing? winkeye

I'm a little tired, to say the least, of the media circus surrounding Tevez and Masche, neither or which have played particularly badly. Lest we forget that Shevchenco has hardly set the Premiership alight either, and Henry, arguably the best striker in the World, was hardly an overnight success. It takes time and patience to adjust to a new league and a new country, and I really don't think it's fair to judge these guys based on 6 games.

We're on a bad run, no doubt about it, but there are plenty of other issues to consider; the poor form of Reo Coker, Konchesky and Harewood, the injury situation (we haven't been able to play the same 4 defenders for 2 games running yet), not to mention the ongoing takeover speculation.

I think things will come good at some point, both players have shown signs of class, it's just a case of being able to field the same team for a few games running, and for us to pick up a bit of form.

Lastly, I don't think it's right for the Argie manager to be getting involved... sure, if it was the end of the season, West Ham has finished 16th, and carried this form on throughout, I could understand. But they've been at the club for 6 weeks - let them settle, then comment.
