Nolan backs Bilic to stay


nolanFormer West Ham skipper Kevin Nolan has backed Slaven Bilic.

Speaking on Talksport Weekend Sportsbar Nolan said: “Listen, Slav is a great fella and he is the man to get them out of it. There’s no one else.

“I speak to the lads quite regularly and they’re disappointed by what’s going on at the minute, but he’s had a lot to deal with as a manager.

“Changing stadium and training ground – that does affect you, it changes things. The stadium move has had a massive influence this season.

“The West Ham board are not ones to hire and fire, they do back their managers and I’m hopeful and quite positive that the two David’s will stick behind Slaven.

“I’m sure he’ll get them out of it and next year we’ll see a different animal in West Ham.”

    Slaven could do worse than to spice up his coaching staff with KN.

    Watched the CP/Gooner game last night. I thought before the game last week that Arsenal were there for the taking, but afterwards the papers spun the line that they had pulled their socks up & would have their normal late season revival. So losing to them was ok. Last night showed that they should have been there for the taking. Little Theo & Ozil looked like 13 year olds again. Cap just blitzed them. We didn’t lay a glove on them. The only thing you can say is perhaps it might have been different at the Emirates. But we should have got a point.

    Agree with you John; I think KN would be a good fit, but he’s doing too well with Notts at the moment, so can’t see this happening?

  • PopRobson says:

    KN would be good, completely agree.
