Next West Ham Manager odds

On Sunday February 11th, West Ham United suffered their heaviest home defeat since 1963 and their worst home defeat in the clubs history. 60-years prior, they lost 2-8 to Blackburn Rovers but at least on that day their fans had two goals to celebrate on that day. However, against Arsenal it was utterly abysmal, 29% possession, five shots (1 on target) and a performance that left Arsenal midfielder Declan Rice thanking his lucky stars that he made the move across London earlier in the season.

West Ham United betting odds

Because of this poor run, manager David Moyes is now under pressure. As of matchday 25, the Hammers sit with five games without a win but do sit in a decent position in the table in 8th. They also progressed to the knockout rounds of the Europa League winning their group, so David Moyes certainly hasn't done an awful job this season. The defeat has just brought to question, could the Hammers be much better? After being knocked out of the FA Cup to Bristol City, 2024 has certainly started on a sour note for the Hammers and a manager sacking could lead them to have a solid end to the season.

It would be an unfortunate departure for Moyes if he was to leave the club but football is a tough business and at the moment, sackings like that aren't exactly rare. If you think David Moyes will be the next Premier League manager sacked, we have a betting market that might just be what you're looking for.

Who would be the favourite to take over from David Moyes?

Currently, West Ham are in their longest ever spell where a non-englishman has been West Ham manager. Since Slavan Bilic took on the role of manager in 2015, Avram Grant, Manuel Pellegrini and now David Moyes have taken on the role as permanent West Ham manager. So, who will be next? Well it is certainly the English managers who are the favourites in the eyes of the media, with Graham Potter touted as an excellent candidate to take over David Moyes, if Moyes was to get the sack. In our opinion, Potter would be a good fit for the West Ham United manager role as the club don't need as much work as Chelsea did and are a lot closer to Brighton & Hove Albion in regards to patience if things are going wrong, so this big club could be a perfect opportunity for Potter's next role at club level.

However, to sack Moyes, you may need to bring in a manager with a higher pedigree than the man who brought the Europa Conference League to the London Stadium and that isn't easy. Marcelo Bielsa and Jose Mourinho are other names linked with the West Ham job and both would bring exciting times to the London Stadium if given the role with Bielsa being a fan favourite everywhere he goes and Mourinho having a trophy cabinet bigger than most football clubs.

However, Mourinho's time at Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur tainted his reputation as a manager in England. If Mourinho was to be the next West Ham manager, he would likely have a lot of questions to answer in the early stages of his time at the club.

David Moyes' Record at West Ham United

It's harsh to be talking about next West Ham manager odds when the current manager is still doing a decent job at the helm but when results go against you like they have in 2024 for West Ham, perhaps it is to be expected. David Moyes took over the West Ham United job with the club sat 17th in the Premier League and staring at a potential relegation. Now, they didn't immediately blow fans away with fantastic results but they stayed up and laid the groundwork for the coming seasons.

Moyes would then lead West Ham to 6th and 7th placed finishes in their next two seasons as they also made the semi-finals of the Europa League before eventually losing out in surprise fashion to eventual winners Eintracht Frankfurt after eliminating the likes of Lyon and Sevilla in the knockout fixtures.

Moyes would lead West Ham to silverware in 2022/23, they tangled with relegation for the first half of the season but the Premier League side would go unbeaten in the tournament with only a 1-1 draw with Gent stopping them from winning every single game. However, their league campaign could be summarised by their 1-5 defeat to Newcastle United, too many mistakes.

Has time caught up on David Moyes? Who will be the next permanent West Ham United manager? Early signs look at Graham Potter but how incredible could it be to see Jose Mourinho in the dugout at the London stadium? Whoever does replace David Moyes, they have to look at keeping their top players with the likes of Mohamed Kudus, Lucas Paqueta and Jarrod Bowen, who look like quite possibly one of the best attacking midfield trios in world football. Could a young manager take the next step in their coaching career or will a legendary manager become the next West Ham manager?
