Slaven Bilic completed his overwhelming ClaretandHugh 24 hour management poll victory when taking 64.61 (794 votes) of the votes over ten other contenders.
The former Hammers defender – currently the big favourite to takeover anyway – was a massive winner when the vote closed at 9 am this morning.
Bilic roared into an early lead from flag fall and finished a distance in front of Michael Laudrup in second place with just 8.78 pc of the vote (108 votes).
Eddie Howe was in third place with 7.4 pc (91 votes).
A total of 1,229 cast their votes and the full result can be seen at https://www.claretandhugh.info/24-hour-manager-poll-the-best-of-the-rest/
The results were passed to David Sullivan and David Gold as soon as the poll closed.
