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 became heavily under pressure and subsequently left West Ham with former Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui. The Spaniard initially performed well with Sevilla but has been sacked with FC Porto, Spain, Real Madrid and Sevilla before leaving Wolves by mutual consent.

The signing doesn't fill us with confidence and it looks likely that the 2022/23 Europa Conference League winners will be looking for another manager within the next year.

Who would be the favourite to take over from Julen Lopetegui

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, David Moyes and now Julen Lopetegui 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 the Spaniard 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.

David Moyes' Record at West Ham United

Some argue that David Moyes' sacking was harsh considering their major trophy win but when results go against you like they did 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.

Time ran out for David Moyes and it will likely run out for Julen Lopetegui as well.
