West Ham: Carlos Corberan could save their season

West Ham United have felt the pressure mounting of late, with David Moyes suffering despite his admittedly impressive work in his second stint at the helm of the club.

Having led the Hammers to consecutive top-seven finishes, he also masterminded a run to the Europa League semi-finals, more than earning his big summer of spending.

The Scotsman would unload £159.6m on eight new faces, including a club-record deal for Lucas Paqueta.

However, things have not been easy since the window slammed shut, as his gambles are yet to pay off.

As such, his side sit only above the relegation spots on goal difference.

Despite the credit he had in the bank, these results have clearly led David Sullivan to question his place in the London Stadium hot seat.

As such, reports earlier this week have claimed that the hierarchy are keeping tabs on West Bromwich Albion’s Carlos Corberan as a potential successor for Moyes.

Despite supposedly backing him to turn it around, the preparation for life after the 59-year-old suggests their faith is somewhat wavering.

Although it may seem unfair given how he had turned things around for the east London outfit, the Spaniard actually could be a smart alternative, with the 39-year-old offering fresh ideas that could propel them out of their current mess.

He has already proven he can mastermind an instant turnaround, as his appointment at the Hawthorns was only finalised in late October.

Since then, the Baggies went from the relegation zone to currently sitting just one point from a playoff spot, winning nine games from their last ten in the Championship, and keeping seven clean sheets.

His pedigree also extends back to last season, where he nearly took Huddersfield Town to the most unlikely of playoff victories before Nottingham Forest thwarted their run.

Corberan impressed so much that season and spurred former Terriers boss Danny Cowley to lavish him with praise. He claimed: “I think he’s been outstanding,” before going on to laud his tactical flexibility.

With just one Premier League win in their last nine, having lost five on the run before their draw with Leeds United, it seems something does need to change.

Perhaps Sullivan’s potential appointment of the Baggies boss could be the catalyst for saving their season, handing this impressive squad to a progressive freethinker with a proven record of propelling teams up the table.
