Slaven Bilic remains on thin ice

lewisFriend of Claret and Hugh and Daily Mirror journalist Darren Lewis confirms that Slaven Bilic remains in a precarious position after the latest Premier League result at Selhurst Park.

Lewis told his tabloid readers “Slaven Bilic remains on thin ice at West Ham after his players threw away the chance to lift the pressure on him. Bilic is also facing a defensive crisis for the visit of Liverpool on Saturday with a number of his defenders unavailable.Pablo Zabaleta is suspended, James Collins still has an ankle injury, Winston Reid missed the 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace because of a calf strain and Jose Fonte picked up a foot injury in that match, leaving the field in the second half. His London Stadium bosses are known to have been dismayed at the way that his team threw away a two-goal lead against struggling Palace.”

  1. Liverpool are without argueably their three best players, Lallana, Coutinho and Mane so there can be no excuses, if we get tonked by the mickey mousers an axe should fall.

  2. Ohh let me guess …another 2 games to save his job?!!

  3. The owners will keep giving him time until we the fans vote with our feet, boycott a game and let the owners see what a n empty stadium looks and feels like.
    We the fans are the heart beat of the Club and if we just keEp going blindly to the matches the owners will not change a thing as the revenue keeps flowing and they think we will support through thick and thin, well I have been supporting the Hammers for 58 years and have seen it all and the only way they will take note of us the supporters, is to boycott a game, don’t put your season tickets up for re-sale as that would only serve to fill the stadium with people who don’t really care, the seats need to be empty , I am sure we, the season ticket holders, can forget one game in order to get our Team back on track. COYI

    • You beat me by just one year!

      Actually, the owners will keep giving him time until they manage to find another coach that will agree to join them.

      As with all their recruitment, you can bet they will be looking abroad for the cheapest around.

      Perhaps they will manage to locate a club that has a spare coach they can loan!

      Unfortunately, the one thing they can bank on, is fans not vote with their feet.

      Going to football and then ranting is basically endemic.

      Where do you think the sudden extra 20k fans came from?

      Any owners that think they are wonderful for moving into a cut-price athletics stadium and then forced to lower the prices to fill the place, are as deluded as all the fans that think anything will ever change.

      I doubt many of us wish to be world-beaters but the current phase of as little effort as possible is a disgrace. Yes, the players are to ‘blame’ on the pitch but coaching and tactics are from the coaching staff and that is where the fault lies.

      I fail to understand the basis for which every pundit and his dog declare Bilic to be a great coach. Clearly confused with him being a personable bloke.

    • Well said

  4. ‘Bilic on thin ice’ – blimey, talk about stating the bleeding obvious!

  5. This is ridiculous nothing will change …what do they think will happen …..he will go to bed and wake up a good manager ..ffs they keep saying they are dismayed and he is on thin ice and so are us fans Jesus stop repeating the same things and f!!!!! Sack him ..he won’t give up a years pay and resign so plse sack him now ..hope fans do show there dismay and don’t go to the games then that’ might hurry them up ..there isn’t a decent pair of ******** out of all the top brass there ..pathetic

  6. What a scoop. Seriously, does this Darren Lewis get paid for this pathetic depth of investigative journalism?

  7. I’m really not sure I can be arsed to go on Saturday, what a state of affairs such apathy from me…! I almost didn’t go to Brighton but did, guess what, wished I hadn’t, don’t want to make the same mistake again. It’s not the results as such that make me angry is the obvious lack of effort or application or even interest by the players, these stats just confirm what we all know. Oh please how much longer, if it wasn’t for the lure of the Rib Man……..

  8. Thin ice with us,sacked 12 months ago anywhere else, why don’t he ask the board how an earth can they be supporters,backing a manager that is clearly out of his depth?

  9. Anyone got any salt !!!😎

  10. As difficult as the situation is at present, there are still formations, tactics, and strategies which, if employed tot the letter, could allow us to win this game!
    No, I am not nuts, nor do I have tickets on myself..
    One full day of research suggests it can be done-if I can see it (or am stupid enough to think so), why can’t Bilic and friends see what is required? Sadly, I’ve come to the conclusion that Bilic doesn’t have a clue at the moment.
    All shall be revealed, very soon!

  11. Laz, I’m just off the phone from the council and a truck-load of the stuff is on its way! Delivery address of Dildo Towers. Knowing our luck all they’ll do with it is form a ring around the house to prevent lady spud from getting in!!!!!!
