So the results are in, and they’re pretty interesting.
Earlier this week we ran a poll to see exactly who West Ham fans want as manager next season. This included Sam Allardyce, too, which gave fans a chance to vote for him should they think he deserves a new contract. Fair is fair and all that.
The list included 13 different managers, 12 of which were names we’ve been linked with in recent months (excluding Garry Monk, who was linked with the job after the poll went live).
It was designed to gather a fair and accurate idea on who the fans wanted in charge of the club at the beginning of next season. In a simple thumbs up, thumbs down style poll, fans could vote for as many mangers they liked and as many managers they didn’t like. So if you’re on the fence about two or three names, you could’ve voted for them all.
The response we got from the poll was beyond anything we ever imagined when it went live. A total of 2,546 different fans took part in the poll, collectively placing 21,395 votes between them as they voted the managers up and down.
Voting closed late last night and now it’s time to share the FANS’ CHOICE with you all. If the owners are reading, then take note.
Counting down the top five, here are the managers West Ham fans wouldn’t mind leading us in to the Olympic Stadium…
