Tony Pulis & David Moyes Lead Chase to Take Over as West Ham Boss if Sam Allardyce Is Fired

Two top candidates lined up to take the Upton Park post.

Check in to Crystal Palace vs West Ham United

Somewhat unsurprisingly West Ham manager Sam Allardyce is once again hotly tipped to be axed in the very near future and the London Evening Standard claims that two potential replacements have already been lined up.

The Hammers lost to Tottenham in their Premier League opener, new Spurs signing Eric Dier scoring a late winner, and now former Eagles boss Tony Pulis and out of work Scot David Moyes are apparently in the running to take over at Upton Park.

Pulis did a superb job at Selhurst Park last term, not only steering Crystal Palace from the drop but pushing hard for a top half finish, and quit the South London side just ahead of the new campaign after a disagreement over transfer targets with chairman Steve Parish.

Moyes did of course preside over a shocking, but brief, spell as Man United manager but it is perhaps only fair to recall the 11 years of, comparative, success he enjoyed at Everton.

Allardyce doesn’t seem all that confident of keeping his job but does make a good point on that front, stating after the defeat to Tottenham;

“If they’re going to do it after one game they might as well have done it at the end of last season,”

“Why wait until now? Why do the whole pre-season we’ve done, create what we’ve tried to create and buy what we’ve tried to buy under my stewardship and then do it after one game?”

One imagines that if West Ham were to lose at Crystal Palace on the weekend then calls for him to be sacked will increase significantly
