Bilic now odds on favourite


slavenFormer Hammer Slaven Bilic has been made 5/6 odds on clear favourite this afternoon to take over from Sam Allardyce and become the 15th manager of West Ham.

Last Week’s previous bookies odds on favourite Rafa Benitez has slipped out to 6/1 as his name gets linked to Real Madrid more frequently. David Moyes makes up the numbers at 14/1 as third favourite with the majority of book makers.

Bilic was 5/2 joint favourite yesterday although he was 5/1 earlier this week and 8/1 earlier this year.

Besiktas president Fikret Orman earlier this week confirmed that Bilic will leave at the end of the season.

    I would take him all day long & then watch him ram the words of these ‘too risky’ ‘sideways step’ fans right up their butts 😉

  • bubs says:

    Still like Emery but he will do,if that’s a sideways move call me a crab,
    No Matte I have not got crabs

  • hammer4life says:

    Sorry bubs. Definitely not a sideways move. Bilic win percentage speaks for itself vs very mediocre numbers for the Genius. And he knows the club and what it stands for. Younger and more in tune with modern European football. Big upgrades right there.

  • bubs says:

    Hammer4life it was a jest I can’t believe you just called me a crab,
    Well it’s better than a rabid dog,monkey or bellend,

  • StingRay Stewart says:

    Apparently not,others elsewhere will have you believe Bilic is a very mediocre club manager & too much of a risk,lol,but ofc these people are all experts.That is why they only rattle off stats on a forum & aint preparing their team for sundays fixtures,lol 😉

  • hammer4life says:

    Sorry bubs. I’m so wound up by this situation making me twitchy. I can’t see the jests from the rest of the s***.

    Honestly I don’t know Bilic well enough to judge him. I saw several matches of B. Dortmund, Seville, Valencia, Real, Milan (Those were the good says… Sheva, Kaka, Rui Costa, Maldini, etc.), Ajax…. Klopp, Emery, Ancelotti, De Boer… Top managers… I hope Bilic is one of them if he’ll be the chosen one… Sorry, I forgot Sam… maybe the best… Lol 🙂

  • TysonM says:

    Well you will always have sammerettes or ‘too risky’ people who no matter who comes in will say they are a sideways step or not an upgrade.Frankly atm who isnt an upgrade.We have been dire for 5 months now.It is painful to watch us at this present time.

    • mattefumi wipes away his tears with the hippo napkins says:

      ahaha… I want to be carfeul… if Bilic is not a top top top top manager… I would go with Sam again…lol

  • bubs says:

    It’s time for a change,who is not relevant anything will be an improvement,
    Monday will bring an end to safety first boring respect the point football,
    Now we all need a white nuckle ride some excitement attacking football.
    Let’s all embrace change and bring our club back to it roots, leave the politics to others and embrace our national game how it’s supposed to be,
