Slaven Bilic has used his Friday London Evening Standard column Slaven Bilic to defend himself by replying to comments by Danny Gabbidon that he appeared to have thrown in the towel after the latest defeat.
Slav wrote: “I understand that Danny Gabbidon — a former West Ham player — wrote in an article that it looked as though I had “thrown in the towel” after the match two weeks ago.
I want to reply to that. I told the players afterwards that, yes, this is West Ham and, yes, we will lose games. Not like that, though. It was unacceptable.
I am not throwing in the towel and neither are the players. We will work hard to put this right — starting on Monday night.”

Hardly Sherlock Holmes to assume where DG gets his news from? – Welsh connection maybe?!
