Saunders slams West Ham owners


SaundersDean Saunders has slammed West Ham owners for his perceived treatment of Slaven Bilic.

Speaking on BBC TV Sport, Saunders said of Bilic “I think he has been treated awfully and it has undermined him and some of the bad results they have got have been down to the way he has been treated.

I heard at the start of the season that there was a shortlist drawn up for his job while he is still in the job. If that was me as a manager and I heard they were looking at other managers whilst I was still in the job I would resign,

I am totally undermined, I am going into a dressing room trying to manage a group of players and there are voices at West Ham from all angles. One of the owners has tweeted after the Leicester game, I want to apologise for that result.

It is not your place to apologise, it is the manager’s job to comment on the team, you just run the club!”

    Yeah dreadful owners who refused to sack the manager after a dreadful run at the start then another after January. And most of the inside info says they will keep him on even if we end up in 17th position. I can think of a few PL managers & a life of Championship managers who would have liked the treatment Bilic has had. One of them actually won the PL last season! As did Mourinho the season before Chelski gave him the heave ho. What garbage!

    Pundits in the main are full of shyte.They talk as much b******s as us fans 😂
    Btw Sean as a way of being balanced are you also going to do an article from Goals On Sunday when Pards said they were doing a tremendous job or now you’re a Spud do you only print the negative stories 😂😂😂

      You are wasting your time Rads, Sean is now posting on His latest article “it’s always been the Spurs for me” is a joy to read.

      Dean Saunders is a ****. Pundits should be accountable for what they say, they should lose their job for talking rubbish.

          Oh really Lord Kahn? I’ll just have to put myself forward for the WHUISA committee. I’ll run on the moderate ticket to even the committee up a little.

          • mywhufc says:

            You’d be more than Welcome John,
            you may even be surprised by what you think I’m like, to what I’m actually like.

          • John says:

            Don’t be like that Nigel. My perception of you is that you are a proper West Ham fan and I have no doubt I’d like you. I’d proper agree with a lot of what you say too but disagree with enough to keep us arguing till late. Stuff like this is always better done with a pint in the hand!

  • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

    Saunders will do anything to get his name in the papers, absolutely awful manager, useless pundit, the board could have sacked Slav a couple of times this season they stuck with him and have publically backed him.. who would be a chairman ?

    • John says:

      Made me laugh him saying if he were undermined he would walk. Lmao of course you would Dean of course you would. You were a useless manager and you’d not get another job for love or money.
