A good and positive article.
However, a Mark Noble comment raised my eyebrow.
Noble said “I think he will be here for a long time”.
Let’s remind ourself that M.P is no spring chicken and if he is indeed embedding his means and methods into the club then I wonder if it’s occurred to M.P and the club that, at his age contigency needs to be considered.
Sounds a tad morbid admittedly but this is big business nonetheless in a fiscal and a sporting sense. As such, I’d like to think that whilst M.P is establishing his blueprint here, he and the club are so mindful of his successor.

Well it only Nobels thoughts, and maybe wishes. At least this blueprint will give G and S a guideline, and hopefully keep them away from their past antics. Pellegrini has a vision, a plan, he cant and shouldnt bet expected to consider contingencies should he croak. G and S have now been given a blueprint which to date has delivered, is there room for improvement?! Maybe, but at least its taking us in the right direction. Far better a blueprint than a scatter gun approach.

Husillos is a key figure for me. If he remains involved either where he is now, or installed as a proper DoF I'll be happy enough. It would be interesting to see his shortlist of successors to MP.
As for Pellegrini himself, he has the look of a man who will keep coaching until they nail his coffin shut.
Coming back to Europe to rebuild and coach West Ham? Not the sort of thing you take on if retirement's at the back of your mind.
The only way he doesn't sign an extension is if Sullivan bollocks it up, Imo.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

Twood be nice to be in an Alex Ferguson type situation where Pellegrini recommends his own successor .

I wouldn’t expect the Dwarf Cunt to listen mind you.

It was just a question of whom brought the Messiah up , I expected that tbh .

Fortunately we’ve already tried him and fucked him off :lol:

I suspect Pellegrini may opt for somebody a bit closer to (his) home ... maybe his assistant manager ?

Somebody familiar with his philosophy that Husillos can continue the good work with.

Things are rosy at present but football can change quickly, when the season ends and we have a trophy or a top 7 finish to boot I will be praising but the signs are there, we play good football, we spend money to compete with rivals, and we have had some success last 5 games.

MP is a fantastic manager and if by Christmas we are comfortably in 5th to 8th place he should be offered another contract.

As for successors, has to be in the back of your mind as a fan. We have a world class coach, best we have had since Lyall days, very hard to replace and the replacement who plays a similiar style or has same vision to go the next level may not even be known at present, we don't want to look too far ahead. We are going in the right direction though.
