Irons confident of Slav’s future


bilicWest Ham are confident  that Slaven Bilic will lead the team into a successful end of season and are  more than hopeful that he will serve out the three years on his contract.

The defeat against Manchester City has been firmly put behind the club as the team heads for Southampton with three points beckoning.

Slaven Bilic is extremely confident and comfortable with the squad and his own situation and has made it clear that the speculation since the City defeat is of no consequence declaring that it’s part of the job and he is focused only on getting top result.

The board retain their confidence in him but like the fans want to see some great performances over the next 15 games.

We were told there’s nothing the club wants to do more than carry on into next year under Slaven and discuss a new deal at the end of that season.

The Hammers are also aware that speculation over Roberto Mancini is “kite flying” and know full well that he is a manager who works on mega budgets which reduces his chances of managing the Irons in a big way.

    Slav should get his 3 years
    But from now let’s bring in a West Ham lad such as Rio to work under him and maybe train to be the next manager when Slav moves on,
    Maybe we could have a great team for years to come
    In the summer we need to keep quite until players actually sign,
    Only go for big players that will improve the team,or use are youngsters,
    Today will be the start of another 5 game run I feel it in the bubbles

    Some of our support remind me of the Palermo owner.He has had 8 managers since the start of last season.The way some of our fans knee jerk & react maybe they are related to him!

    ” Irons confident of Slavs future” .
    begs the question , Why ? . We all hope beyond hope the He will get us playing some good football over the remaining 15 games and the team earn a decent points tally . Decent being a tally that sees us well placed in the top ten .
    If we should find ourselves constantly looking over our shoulders then questions should rightfully be asked . But if we are happy with always being ” also rans ” that’s fine .
    Mind you a few good , no , better signings in the summer would be very welcome .
    There could be more to this Mancini thing than meets the eye . It shouldn’t surprise us if there is .
