The season has barely been over but the wheels are turning in the process to hire West Ham United’s new manager. Much speculation surrounds the Hammers appointment of the top boss but little is known about where the board stand.

Many reports state that David Moyes is set to see the door out of East London. However, in classic West Ham fashion one of the co-owners has gone against the company line.

In an interview with Sky Sports David Gold said he hopes David Moyes will stay on as manager at West Ham. Early in the interview it’s clear Gold is trying to stay on message, but the crafty reporter is able to get Gold to give a bit more of his thoughts than perhaps he’d have liked.

This isn’t the first time that a West Ham owner has taken to the media to air their thoughts and the club’s dirty laundry. It’s just another reminder that the board really do need to be silent.

This comes on the heels of Karen Brady’s disparaging comments in her Sun column which has sparked a lot of anger from many fans.

While it is admirable that Gold, Brady, and the Sullivan family try to interact with fans via the media, there is something to be said about the silence that comes from many of the top teams in the Premier League.

Sure it’s nice to know where our owners stand on the stadium, the squad, and the manager but, it would be refreshing to not be reading headline after headline about the owners rather than the team.

Oh well, just another day in the life of West Ham.
