Former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini edges closer to West Ham job after leaving Hebei China Fortune

Hebei made the announcement on social media after Pellegrini guided the team to a 2-1 win over Chongqing Lifan

By Jake Polden

Manuel Pellegrini has left Chinese Super League outfit Hebei China Fortune, the club confirmed on Saturday, paving the way for the former Manchester City boss to take over at West Ham.

Hebei made the announcement on social media after Pellegrini guided the team to a 2-1 win over Chongqing Lifan in the club's final league match before a two-month break for the World Cup.

The statement read: "After amicable discussions with Mr Pellegrini, we have reached a mutual agreement.

"As of May 20, Mr Pellegrini will no longer work as the head coach of Hebei China Fortune Football Club.

"We sincerely thank Mr Pellegrini for his contribution to the club and we wish him all the best for the future."

Considering the squad we have this season was always going to be wildly inconsistent.

The fact is the squad is top heavy with players who lack pace and mobility - whether old, injury prone or just not good enough.

If we can get 4-5 players in at the right age and profile then the first XI will be very good.

Defensive Midfielder, Left Back are priorities.

The problem will be injuries/strength in depth but that could be helped if we stop taking punts on players like Carroll and Wilshere.

Damaged goods aren't the same after being put back together with superglue...it's time our owners woke up and smelt the coffee.

Forgot about Hugil Mary. That'll add another £100 to the kitty then.

Rb, we heard we had a 30 million transfer budget last season, that turned out to be bollocks just as this rumour could be. I’m not even sure the club know what the budget will be at this time of the year as I would imagine it will depend on league placings etc.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
3 Strikers and a midfielder all for £25 million and sold players fees.! Your'e really asking for it if you are willing to bank roll the SPIVS. And that's all they are giving in return.

Replacing that little lot will require some serious additional investment from the cunts at the top, even taking any potential money earned from their sales into account.
If the clubs mouthpiece C&H are to be believed and the amount available to the gaffer is only somewhere in the region of £25mill...............
Still, we DO have the return of Hugill to look forward to.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Was always gonna be a difficult first season with shite and injury prone / ageing players filling 60% of the squad.

In the summer Ogbonna, Massuaku, Obiang, Snodgrass, Perez & Arnie need to be sold.
Carroll & Reid obviously need to go. If Wilshire can't stay fit then him too.
Noble & Zaba can not be starters anymore too & if we got any offers for them or they wish to leave or go into coaching then fine much as both esp Noble have been great servants.
Adrian may be off too, so if we can shift the deadwood and replace with better I am very hopeful that we will be top seven pushing 5th or 6th next season.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
I like Pellegrini, but he is clearly an idealist. Not a pragmatist.

We have a very good spine to the current team. But Mark is getting old and we can't chuck all responsibility on Declan Rice. He's too young, although supremely talented.

Need another Bonzo in midfield. We HAVE to be harder to beat.

As for the forwards. Fuck knows. They're all dubious in some ways. Arnie, he should just be let go. Chica is not versatile enough. RIP Andy Carroll.

If Pellegrini stays, has a clearout, I am confident he will get things moving on up

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
A very hard season to judge the manager on due to the amount of injuries we've had. Certainly prepared to give him at least half a season playing with at least a nearly full strength squad before i decide i want him out. He's got us playing some lovely stuff but we still lack the consistency to challenge anywhere near the top six.

If he can sort the defence out plus add a couple more players we could be onto something good rather than mediocre as we are now.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Will judge Pelle next season, there’s no doubt he comes with pedigree, there’s some dead wood to get rid of and we have been unlucky with injuries but I still think he will take us up a notch by next season.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Is it wrong that I want to see at least 10 solid performances where we dominate a game and do not give away chances like a 5 a side under 8 girls side,???, for fuck sake I love one touch football and playing football from the back to the front this season for me even the games we win are stupidly annoying and the quality and commitment is just not good enough.
As for the Pel and his set up and choice of players away performances have been SHIT ! it has to be said this is not moaning at all it is all fact.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Reserve judgement on him until after this summer.
He's going to be very busy as a lot of our shit and unsettled players need moving on.

Alarm bells were ringing over Wilshere , incredibly poor signing,
Medel is exactly what we don't need.

He's got to start looking at young,athletic players that the right mentality.
Absolutely no more fucking finished,money grabbing , mercenaries.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
There’s no chance of him being sacked, but I think we need to be honest about this season.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Hes great manager who we are lucky to have. We won’t get better and with time and the right backing you’ll see the results. Jesus look at Spurs, it’s taken them literally 15 years to start to properly compete at the top and that’s been with very good backing

goose 7:02 Sat Mar 16
Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Better? Yes. Miles better? I dunno about that.
Hard to judge as you had two managers last season.

For me we are 4-6 points off where we should be. For all this talk of attacking football those were the first goals from open play since January.

Takashi Miike 7:02 Sat Mar 16
Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
goose, what they spent has papered over the cracks. we still lack depth in many areas and most importantly in central midfield where teams continually overpower us, even though Declan continues to shine

I'd love Conte, but I'm sure him and Inzaghi wouldn't entertain managing us. Hutter's a very good coach but it would be hard to shift him if Frankfurt get in the CL. Calleja, is one I haven't got a clue about as a coach/manager but remember him as a pretty good winger

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
Anyone that thinks we haven't progressed is an idiot. Miles better than last season, not perfect, but so much more entertaining and with a better squad.
MP had a good budget by our standards but nothing compared to the teams in the top six.

Re: Pellegrini _ The South American John Lyall
So your saying all 3 managers are the same? Despite one having spent way more than the other two.

Barring some kind of amazing run of form, this season hasn’t been good enough.

Ok my shortlist, not that it has any relevance is:
Adi hutter
Javier calleja
Simone inzaghi
Antonio conte (long shot)

cunt, did I say you wanted moyes. I asked you who you wanted and you never said, who do you want as manager. how long will you give the next manager? and then the next manager when he doesn't live up to your expectations? we had all this when him if was in charge and I said things wouldn't drastically change because of the owners, and they haven't
