David Moyes’ cer­tain fail­ure and in­evitable sack­ing, would I be right in think­ing the only peo­ple not to have man­aged West Ham in the UK are leg­endary ven­tril­o­quist Ray Alan and his dap­per side­kick, Lord Charles? If this is the case, then the Ham­mers’ board should act swiftly with their ap­point­ment. De­spite him be­ing dead for sev­eral years I think an Alan/Charles part­ner­ship would be a dy­namic ad­di­tion to Premier­ship man­age­ment, pos­si­bly in the Clough/Tay­lor mould. The only down­side I can fore­see would be Lord Charles’s bit­ing sar­casm and ob­tuse at­ti­tude to­wards the 4th of­fi­cial, per­haps re­fer­ring to him as a ‘silly arse’, that would in­vari­ably lead to him be­ing reg­u­larly sent to the stands.
