Confused Slav did a tunnel runner

Slaven-Bilic (1)Slaven Bilic ran down the tunnel and back again when Dimi Payet scored to cap an astonishing Irons comeback at Everton.

The Hammers boss admitted: “I didn’t know what to do. “I didn’t know what to do. I went down the tunnel to calm down and came back straight away.

“It was a great comeback, a great game. To do it like this is unbelievable. Of course they are going to cause you problems with Lukaku, Lennon, (Ross) Barkley but when we had the ball I always had the feeling we could do it.

“I said at half-time ‘We are one down but we are going to do it. We have to be less sexy and more lethal in front of the box’.

“We knew it was not going to be one-sided match when you have a player like Lukaku. “When they had the ball, he makes that one-player loss less visible. He creates mayhem.

“To come back like this nobody can deny we didn’t deserve it. We showed our quality, we showed our stubbornness and we got a great win.”

  1. Even showed dignity in his excitement,did not take the spot light away from his players BBC EVEN MISSED THAT AND SHOWED A CLUELESS MARTINEZ INSTEAD
    we have waited so long for a special player to take us to the next stage and now we have many,the finish from Payet was brilliant the back heel from Sakho magical the header from Carroll well won and put in a great area the cross perfect,
    Lanzini is game changer Valencia can be if he stop going down so easy,
    Antonio Cresswell Kouyate Obiang Ogbonna Byram Adrien Noble can all be game winners as well,Oxford did nothing wrong just could not handle one special moment from that man again,
    Slav will attract the 2-3 players we need in the summer to go to the next level we don’t need to sell any one but we need to replace our lonees with class players and sign Lanzini
    One good goal scorer one good defender and a left winger / stroke midfielder
    The youngsters may cover the last Samulsun and Cullen,Oxford Henry Burke and Hendrie might cover the second it the main one we need
