Sour Puss Won't Be Fully In Charge Of Spurs

Spurs owner Daniel Levy's shot in the foot moment comes just a bit too soon for Hammers to fully benefit as it is understood that Tottenham's U-18 manager, Ryan Mason, will apparently lead the senior side out for the London Stadium derby, despite being younger than many of the first-team players. Levy has just jumped in to bed with the Devil from a financial point of view with the announcement that 'old sour puss' himself, Jose Mourinho, has been appointed manager in place of Mauricio Pochettino who was sacked after five years in charge.

There are times in life when being resilient and resistant to change can be commendable qualities, however West Ham United's beleaguered manager Manuel Pellegrini has found himself between a rock and a hard place when it comes to his team selections. Ahead of this Saturday's clash against Burnley at Turf Moor, Pellegrini's modus operandi is being called in to question by an increasing amount of fans.

Grade One Error By Pellegrini

Stubbornness, recalcitrance and arrogance are three 'qualities' not necessarily wanted or appreciated by the vast majority of people, but to politicians and football managers, particularly those who have experienced a modicum of success, they are meat and drink. The Hammers hierarchy finally pushed the boat out by bringing in 'serial' winner Manuel Pellegrini to the club.

Fact:Irons Can't Afford To Sack Pellegrini

As expected, following yet another poor result on Saturday, the airwaves have been full of 'professionals' putting the boot in on West Ham United, in particular manager Manuel Pellegrini.
