Slav’s honest approach to new deal


bilicSlaven Bilic has made it clear that landing an improved contract is entirely dependent on where he has led the club when May arrives!

Talks – as reported by ClaretandHugh earlier this week – are underway with the boss but it certainly doesn’t appear to be the number one priority on his agenda.

As has been reported many times, the West Ham United job has never been about money but as ever he approached the topic honestly when it was raised by the media.

He said he will only be worth a pay-rise if he turns the promise of his first season in charge into achievement come May.

He said: “I have a contract, I said the same at (his previous club) Besiktas – my contract is my work and only good work guarantees me that.

“What it says on paper, OK, it can give you a little bit of security but that doesn’t protect you from bad things. So my contract is my daily work, my next few games, but I am extremely happy here.”

    Sounds like he would do it t for nothing,but it does not sound like he is staying for ever,
    Hope he decides to stay at least 4 years,just to get that bitter taste of Hippo meat out of my mouth before I float away on a giant Claret bubble ,
    And yes you Samites I will come back and haunt you like memories of him cupping his hand to his ear still sticks in my little brain,
    Just get them going form the first second Slav this is the worse defence in the premier the worse Kepper I have seen for 10 years,
    Don’t sit back waiting for them to tear JOB to bits or Ginge to make a slip up,
    Let’s get 2 up in ten minutes and push on,we are good enough against this rubbish
    Semi in Wembley sounds nice to me against who does not mater any more
