West Ham United haven’t won since 22nd September while under the management of Manuel Pellegrini, leaving some fans looking to Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe to save them.
In their last six matches, the Irons have conceded 13 goals and have only managed to score six, they also haven’t been seeing much of the ball, with an average possession of just 50.9% each game. Howe’s Bournemouth side have been much more defensively solid conceding only five goals in their last six.
Because of these stats, many of these fans have been calling for Howe to replace current Hammers manager Manuel Pellegrini.

I’d take Howe all day long

However, some fans believe getting the 41-year-old to join West Ham is a very difficult task, which is true as Bournemouth are currently sitting seven places higher than the Hammers on the league table.
We would get none of them apart from Arteta but even that is very slim

We never get Howe

Erik Ten Hag looks like he is going to Bayern Munich
Eddie Howe would not leave Bournemouth for us
Arteta has not been a Manager, our team needs someone with experience to motivate a team, when their confidence is low.

What Do We Think?
It’s very possible that Pellegrini will be sacked within the next couple of fixtures, as they still have to play Tottenham, Chelsea and Wolves in their next three matches.
Neil Warnock recently left Cardiff so is an option, however, the 70-year-old has been heavily linked to Hearts in the Scottish Premiership, which could mean even if the Hammers do sack Pellegrini, there aren’t loads of realistic options to choose from.
