Bookies back Bilic but cool on Terry/ Defoe Irons moves

bilic_main_3437996b-large_transpjliwavx4cowfcaekesb3kvxit-lggwcwqwla_rxju8Slaven Bilic’s position at West ham is looking safer and safer …according to the bookies at least!

From being around 2-1 to be the next manager to depart a few weeks ago Skybet now quote the boss at 6/1 to leave in 2016/17.

Hardly very generous with just three games left but the odds probably reflect a growing belief that the Croat will still be in charge at the start of next season.

The current odds are as long as they have been in several weeks  but he remains behind only David Moyes who is quoted at 2/1 to be out of work.

Meanwhile John Terry looks unlikely to be on his way to the irons according to Skybet who quote odds of 10/1 with Bournemouth favourites to grab to Chelsea man at 11/10.

And Jermain Defoe is now an unlikely arrival who is quoted at 8/1 against returning to the Hammers next season.

  1. Incredible. What does he have to do to get sacked. Get relegated?

  2. I think that the odds are on being sacked before the end of the season – like many on here I really want(ed) Slav to succeed but this season has been poor – watching some matches has been on a par with some of the painful victories or draws eked out under BFS – I think that the board will tell Slav that he has to change his backroom staff (especially the fitness coach) and he will refuse and that will be the end of him. I am not sure who we will get to replace him and if he will be any better

  3. In a perverse way im rather hoping Slaven will get the tin tack if only to gleefully read the same supporters who want him out then turning on the new guvnor within weeks or months.
    Mark my words it will happen lol
