Bad mistake.

He was a good manager. He made 100% out of the squad.

He has made a lot of good moments.
I vote Zola as the new Italian coach. Agree?

Zola should have gotten more time, The Hammers are not a great side and I think given time, he could have put his brand on it by getting a couple of new players (after all, the y have to) Buona Fortuna Gianfranco!

I loved Zola as a player. Dont know him as a manager, but the clubs always fire theier managers when they doesnt reach the clubs goals for the season. Sometimes it helps, normally they need to focus on the squad...
