Slav: It’s all down to Dyche


BilicSlaven Bilic has applauded Sean Dyche for the trasformation he has brought about at Burnley this season.

The Hammers boss – discussing the Clarets at his pre-match presser – reckons everything that has happened at Turf Moor is down to  the Clarets boss.

He said: ” If you ask which team has beat Chelsea, Everton and drew with Spurs and Liverpool you’d say United or City, you wouldn’t say Burnley, like you wouldn’t say West Ham.

sean-dyche-burnleyIt was a big achievement and they deserved it, it wasn’t luck, they have now experience of the Premier League, not just the manager but everything.

They done it last season, gained the confidence, changed the team a bit and got some good players and they are playing with more bravery, freedom but they didn’t lose that steelness in them and compactness that is still the core of their philosophy. Very good team and all the plaudits go to Sean Dyche.

    He also said Dyche would make a good Manager for England. Which I agree with him there if they want to stick w English mgr.
    But Bilic has to be nice and that’s fine but we should be beating and taking a point away from those teams.
    Bilic basically just said Dyche is a better Manager then him. With a baby GK doing very well didn’t replace Keane and Tarkowaski stepped in & looks better w Mee. Lost Gray got Wood didn’t spend a lot but have been winning away making most out of chances etc.
    I imagine if Dyche had more attacking players he would press more.
    11-15 players of ours are better on Paper then Burnley so why cant we play as a TEAM like they do!
