There's a bit of the unstoppable force collides with an unmoveable object regarding the future of West Ham United, majority shareholder David Sullivan took DECISIVE action by bringing in the much sought after Tim Steidten in order to bring some order to the transfer signing chaos that preceded the German's appointment.

It should be remembered that it was pantomime villain Barry Silkman who arranged the final details of the transfers of Tomas Soucek AND Lucas Paqueta, neither of which were David Moyes signings, nor of Rob Newman contrary to public belief!

Stick Or Twist-But When?

Sunday's game resulted in three VERY needed points, but for different reasons. For West Ham as a team the points were essential in order to go into yet another pointless International break in the top half of the table, for West Ham as a club it threw up another conundrum, namely what to do with a 'problem' like Moyesauro?

Hammers 'urgent' need for an additional midfield player who knows how to 'put it about' was highlighted during the 3-2 defeat to Brentford last Saturday, a midfield shorn of the likes of Lucas Paqueta AND Edson Alvarez was cruelly exposed. Ironically the player who could easily have stepped in to fill the gaps is currently on loan at Southampton where he is performing impeccably.

Hammers spirited but eventually pointless visit to the GTech Stadium in West London raised certain issues that just won't go away! Primarily the club or its manager's inability to 'find' a striker has come back to haunt the club in a massive way. It is not as if it is a new scenario, having failed to sign a replacement for Gianluca Scammaca following hot on the heels of not signing a replacement for Sebastien Haller, somehow somewhere there is a serial offender at large!

Brentford have done incredibly well since gaining their promotion to the Premier League three seasons ago, many teams go down after just one season so they and their manager deserve full credit for their success. That said, the way that they have achieved it is somewhat less than attractive.

Fortunes always hiding

Conspiracy theorists might well conclude that West Ham are 'victims' of terrible League Cup draws, the Irons have NEVER won what is still known as the League Cup in most quarters and the likely hood of winning it briefly shone before being extinguished with news that the club's 1/4 final opponents will be none other than arch nemesis Liverpool, away!
