Bilic firmly denies Irons talks

200px-Slaven_BilićSlaven Bilic has firmly denied holding talks with West Ham over a summer move to the Premier League.

He told the Spanish media: “I do not know who keeps spreading the West Ham link but I can tell you I am not in talks with the club.”

The former Hammer has been regularly linked with the club but ClaretandHugh has been told on several occasions that he is not a major candidate.

The Beskitas boss admitted he had received offers from Premier League clubs in the past but said: “There were offers in 2008 and 2010 when I was in charge of Croatia.”

  1. I remember Bilic as being a good player but as soon as Everton came sniffing he was off, so he’s not in my mind a Hammers man through and through. His management CV isn’t over impressive either.
    Of the two favoured names mentioned on this site I would rather Moyes to BFS but we’re getting to the stage where just about anyone in the world I’d prefer. I see Moyes as pretty steady and defensive but on the plus side willing to bring young players through so I think he wouldn’t be so bad.
    I have to hold my hands up and say I know very little of Bielsa but from what I’ve heard it certainly wouldn’t be dull but it’s his age which puts me off.
    The name I’m surprised we haven’t heard so much of is Frank de Boer, assistant coach to World Cup running up team, youth team coach at Ajax (we may be called The Academy but can anyone name a better youth set up than Ajax) and now head coach of the first team having won four titles (three of which were against Koeman). Two years ago he wasn’t ready for the Prem league but surely if we sold it as a long term project with the upcoming OS he might be tempted.
    No matter who it can’t be BFS, I’d like to thank him for his steadying of the ship but his time should’ve been up a year ago and he MUST go. If I have to suffer any more of the tripe I watched most of last season and recently against Palace, Sunderland and Stoke I’d have to consider giving it up. Paying good money to be bored or angry sounds more like a fetish than football.

  2. Money talks and until a new manager sits down and has those talks we will all be in the dark,
    If we have a mother bad result this weekend anyone could have his name thrown in the ring.
    Let’s just get through these next games release BFS and start next season fresh.
