Slaven Bilic will head off for Dubai tomorrow (Wed) knowing the pressure on his job is history!
The West Ham board are delighted with the progress the team has made and memories of the Manchester City humbling in the FA Cup have been well and truly buried by the performances immediately preceding and following that game.
David Sullivan has hailed the performances and progress in recent official website statements and with the club now seeing relegation as an “impossibility” Slav can head into his third season with the club ready to consolidate and move forward.
There is a widespread acceptance inside the club that the summer transfer dealings contributed greatly to the problems and the manager’s handling of the Payet affair and the turnaround in the club’s form has all but secured his position.
ClaretandHugh was told : “It would be unnatural if there hadn’t been worries given the manner and size of some defeats but Slaven has got hold of things and but for an entirely disastrous end to season will go into his third year.
“Relegation now looks an impossibility. It usually takes around three years to establish a successful operation in every walk of life and football is no different.
There’s a good feeling around the club and the players are responding brilliantly under Slaven.”
Told you. In Slav We Trust
