Oi Mers, Shut Your Mouth!

As if it isn't embarrassing enough for ex-Arsenal player Paul Merson to constantly get teams and players names mixed up while attempting to be a pundit on Sky Sports, he has now descended into downright insults that have absolutely NO substance!

His recent 'assault' on Hammers incoming manager Julen Lopetegui is absolutely disgraceful for which he should issue a full apology, or at least Sky should do so on his behalf. Clearly on some form of medication, Merson who battled drink, drugs and gambling throughout his career, firmly stated that Julen Lopetegui would not come near to matching outgoing manager David Moyes' achievements even if he tries for 25 years.

Let us examine this nasty little 'swipe', how many managers stay at clubs for 25 years in the first place? Secondly what 'insider knowledge does Merson possess regarding Lopetegui? Does he really have a crystal ball? The answer is that he knows nothing and can barely remember last week let alone when Julen Lopetegui was managing Wolves or the Spanish National team.

We suggest Merson tries to think before he opens his mouth in the future otherwise he will risk being a laughing stock, if he isn't one already! -LN

So in Mersons world if Arteta again fails to bring silverware to the Gooners he should be sacked and ergo Moyes has to replace him because if you compare both on the Trophy front Moyes is a winner its what he does

Years of substance of abuse have ruined the guys few brain cells. West Ham might be the only team he can pronounce...who knows??

All of this is just lazy broadcasting / journalism. They all look at the stats and say, look he’s done a great job why do you want him gone? The fact is that these pundits take data from the little researcher without delving into the details by watching a full West Ham game and realising that not only is it ugly football but Moyes uses a defensive low ball tactic without the raw material to defend! What Shearer, Merson and others are doing in the media is the equivalent to not running back to support the team when out of possession… had they played under St Pep he would have dropped them! He will eat his words when J Lo wins silverware and he has that Cockrel tattoo as he stupidly said Spudz will not stop City and promised a Spudz tattoo is he's wrong... fingers crossed :o)
