Give Slaven Bilic time to get it right says former Hammer

CotteeheadphonesFormer Hammer Tony Cottee says Slaven Bilic will get it right given time.

TC told Askfans.co.uk “Given the time he will get it right. Problem is, he’s in the last year of his contract
and we’ll have to see what happens. Of course, he’s an ex-team mate of mine so I’m a little bit bias. We played together back in the 94-95 season.”

“He’s a great lad with a British mentality. I like any West Ham manager to have a connection with the fans.

“Not everyone can support the club, obviously, but the fact Slaven has played for the club – he gets it. He knows what it means.”

“They are a very passionate bunch. All fans are demanding these days, but there’s a genuine will for him to be successful.

“He was always a bit too clever for us lot. He was a qualified lawyer so he was far too clever for our dressing room.

“First and foremost he was an outstanding player. You could see he was someone that had something a little bit different.

“I liked the fact that he came to England and in amongst it all.

“He understood it and developed a genuine passion for English football. No surprise at all to see him come back as a manager.”

  1. He has had well over two seasons and apart from a handful of games post Payet he has not addressed the problems of slow starts and sloppy goals, we have seen no improvement on that front, he is likeable but to live up to the chairmen’s promises we need a manager that can have the same effect on us that Pochetino has had on Spurs there are very few like that but there are numerous that won’t be any worse than Bilic and can address the faults we have.

  2. You will of course tell everyone why hes super Slav Ronnie won’t you , show us some insight into you’re knowledge of bilic and his tactics , or are you one of the xxxxing trolls that just ***** like a bearded lady going through menopause !!! +1 32 spot on .can’t see him breaking with his same as approach unless he steps out of the headlights and takes on board what everyone else can see !! well except Ronnie he’s staring at the same headlights !! Ehh!!!

  3. The way we play is like a broken record Ronnie, same old thing on repeat every match, I would be happy if the broken record produced three points every match or a hatful of West Ham goals each game but it doesn’t.

  4. Gotta agree with 32 and Lazurus; no idea how Bilic got the ‘Super’ added to his name , but one thing’s for sure, hopefully it’ll be ‘Super Goodbye’ in the not too distant future!
