Bilic makes a pledge


angry-bilic-624x447Slaven Bilic has given an assurance there will no repeats of last season with the Hammers sliding down the table.

The draw at Norwich, following the defeat at Southampton, has set up the spectre of an end of season similar to last year when we sunk after a brilliant start.

The Irons of course started their fall after being beaten by West Brom in the FA Cup on Valentines eventually finishing in 13th after that fine start.

Such was the slide, the Hammers won just two more games in a dreadful second half of the season.

Bilic won’t hear of such a decline this season pledging that it’s simply not going to happen under his stewardship.

Speaking after the game against Norwich he said: ” No way will we put the season to bed now – we have no right to do that and it will not happen.

“Maybe we will lose games, because mistakes can happen, but there’s no chance that we are going to stop. No, no, no.”

    We still want 5th or 6th spot so we need some wins to go with the draws
    Just find the best 11 Slav and stick to it

    I did another post saying that how we do down the stretch depends greatly on how Lanzini and Sakho come back. If they return to their pre-injury form quickly then we will do OK but even then I don’t see a fifth place for us. I think Liverpool will join Saints in front of us and there’s a better than even money chance Chelsea will too.
    My estimate at the start of the season was 6th. If everything went really well but probably 8th. would be more likely, unless that is Sakho and Lanzini really fly from the moment they get back on the pitch
