West Ham owners David Gold and David Sullivan must show their hand this summer and do the club a favour by striking two of the club’s most influential figureheads – and not in a good way – off the payroll.
Striker Andy Carroll and manager David Moyes were reportedly at loggerheads after the boss opted not to select the former Newcastle ace to come off the bench in the Hammers 4-1 pummelling at the hands of Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.
As a result, the Hammers were pushed back into the relegation mire and they are now sweating on their status in the top-flight with just three points separating them and Southampton in 17th.
It was a game which not only highlighted the Scot’s deficiencies in the hot seat but the incident between the duo emphasised the lack of togetherness in the ranks too.
Negative tactics coupled with poor decision making have not been helped by players making individual errors and for Carroll to yet again finds himself back in the thick of the problems, demonstrates a player who thinks he is above his place.
And that after only getting himself fit following yet another horror-season of injuries.
This major incident lowers morale at the club to yet another low and these two, at the centre of this latest episode, must be shown the exit door.
