West Ham keeping tabs on Championship boss as pressure grows on David Moyes

West Ham are reportedly keeping tabs on Championship boss Carlos Corberan as pressure grows on David Moyes at the London Stadium.

The Hammers view the West Brom head coach, an ex-Leeds United coach, as someone that could be moved for in the future, a plan B should form continue to disappoint.

West Ham currently sit sit 17th in the Premier League table, with 15 points from 18 games played, and have already lost 11 times.

They are still in the FA Cup, having knocked out Brentford with 1-0 victory in the Third Round, and face Derby County in the fourth, but crashed out of the Carabao Cup in the Third Round, losing on penalties to Blackburn Rovers after a 2-2 draw.

The East London outfit have struggled to maintain their recent success, it was the 2021/22 season when Moyes took the club to the semi final stage of the Europa League and also battled for a place in the top four for much of last season.

However, massive summer investments in big-money signings such as Gianluca Scamacca and Lucas Paqueta, it’s been rather underwhelming on the pitch.

In the Europa Conference League group, they have advanced with six wins from six. But clearly, the worrying drop down the Premier League standings has seen the club’s fan base turn on Moyes calling for him to be axed.

For now at least, West Ham are sticking by him for now, but they are keeping their options open, and have an eye on West Brom’s Carlos Corberan, who since being appointed back in October, has really turned their fortunes around by taking them from second bottom to 9th, winning 8 of their last 9 games.

West Ham meanwhile have lost five of their last seven games in all competitions though are unbeaten in their last two.

Moyes still has the backing of owner David Sullivan and the board, who aren’t exactly known for say doing a Watford in sacking manager after manager.

For now, the Scot will try to guide the club away from the drop zone on Saturday as West Ham travel to face fellow strugglers Wolves, who have really com into themselves since the appointment of Julen Lopetegui and are expected to spend money this January transfer window to move up the table away from relegation, something that looks unlikely to happen at West ham right now.


Carlos started as the head coach of Doxa and Ermis in the Cypriot First Division, before being a first team assistant coach and manager of the under-23s side at Leeds United.

He then managed in his own right at Huddersfield Town and Olympiacos.

It was back in July 2020 when Corberan was offered the position of head coach at Huddersfield Town, which he accepted and his appointment was confirmed on the 23rd of July, losing his debut on the 5th of September, a 1–0 defeat at home to Rochdale in the first round of the Carabao Cup; and the first league game a week later saw the same score against Norwich City also at home.

Corberan missed the opening game of the 2021–22 season due to a positive Covid test, but by the end of the 2021–22 season, he saw the Terriers finish in third place, drew the first leg of the playoff semi-finals, 1–1 away from home, and a 1–0 home win saw them win against Luton Town and set up a final with Nottingham Forest at Wembley with it decided by an Huddersfield own goal; after two Huddersfield penalty appeals being turned down, Corberan questioned the purpose of VAR following the match.

On the 7th of July 2022, Corberan resigned from his position as head coach and a month later was named by Olympiacos, but was dismissed from the Super League Greece title holders in mid-September, having won twice in 11 games, lost both UEFA Europa League fixtures and ranked fifth in the table.

This is what fans had to say as reports claim West Ham are keeping tabs on the Championship boss Carlos Corberan while pressure grows on David Moyes…
