David Sullivan has declared that Slavn Bilic will get the three years he has signed up for and that he is expecting things to get better at the club.

Speaking to Gary Neville on Sky ahead of the game against Brighton the co chairman said: “He didn’t sign up for one or two years – he signed for three and he deserves that chance.

“I don’t think he knows his best team at the moment but I think we are improving and will get there.”

Meanwhile Bilic was confident that we could see a Lanzini/Chicharito partnership blossom tonight (Fri) saying: “That’s what we are looking for and there is no better player to give him the balls he required than Lanzini.

“I can feel the players are feeling better and we are improving here. It’s a great stadium and I think we have turned a corner.”

Of Andy Carroll’s absence he said: “He is an important player for us but we will continue to need the crosses put into the box.”

    Still doesn’t know his best team ,,,!,
    It’s pretty obvious that we are missing Carroll . I know there are those that think otherwise .
    But tonight it was blatantly obvious even to his distractors that he is needed .
    Defensively we are rubbish . Attack wise we are rubbish .
    Should be bye bye Bilic . Joe Hart is slow and weak . They should both go tomorrow .
    Sad days indeed .

    Bilic should pack his bags tonight . If not we are relegated . Terrible team performance .
    It’s really saddening to see how we are playing .
    Sullivan & Gold need to grow a pair and sack him . Every team with a poor record solve Thier problem against us , FFS . It’s got nothing to do with the Stadium anymore .

    Seriously £50m Ayew, Arnoutavich who makes those decisions?

    Now I have seen/heard it all-Sullivan lecturing us on morality. The reason it is not immoral to rip up a contract is that both sides agree to do it& the club pays up..oh hang on,could that be the bit that Mr S does not like?

    He’s an excellent judge of how things are going isn’t he the little tinker?

    Sullivan cannot be serious. You can’t let Bilic be in charge of the team for another day. Writing was on the wall after the Payet affair and was in bold letters when Sakho went AWOL. He lost the dressing room last year. The last 2 home games have been an embarrassment to our great club. If Bilic has an ounce of decency, he’ll resign. If not, and the Board don’t sack him, the Board should go or put the club up for sale
