The Slaven BIlic Poll

Slaven11Many will accuse us of being reactionary in running a poll directly after the latest disappointing Premier League defeat.

But the truth is that Slaven Bilic has only managed twelve Premier League wins in thirty-nine games spanning a full twelve months.

We ask whether Slav’s time is up and he should go immediately; whether he should be given until after the Crystal Palace result; given to the end of the year; season or show faith in him by giving him a new contract and stick with the Croatian.

  1. I am not a “Bilic must go because he has had a bad run of results & performances” person. I also like him as a person; but, it is time for him to go – for his own peace of mind & reputation, as much as anything else. He looks clueless , the team looks clueless. Neither he, nor they , look as if they have any idea of what to do next. He can’t get a reasonable performance out of the team & they don’t even look like a TEAM ! No one is benefitting by him staying. I’m very sorry, Slaven, but your time is up.

  2. I agree. I’m not like that either, and have desperately hoped that he would turn it around, but there doesn’t seem to any kind of long term plan or foundation on which to build – it’s just one result to the next, and that’s no good for anyone, least of all him. We need a manager that views us as a long term project, with the ability to apply players to a system, rather than a system to the available players. Each time we get a result – usually fortuitously and never with any real conviction or class – we say “that’s bought him some time”, but is that really the best way for a Premier League team to be run? I don’t think so.

  3. Depends when another manager can come in, his time’s up and it’s more of a question of when rather than if.
    Task now is to identify who we want in next and when that can happen

  4. We can’t go on like this. The poll is saying a massive majority favour of a change & this must be fairly representative of Hammer fans. The brigade who normally come on here saying ‘ I can’t stand all you moaners ‘ have been keeping their heads down, but there was nothing to stop them voting for more of the same rubbish for another season ( which presumably is what they enjoy). Surely the owners can bring themselves to swallow their pride. It won’t be easy to get a decent manager now, but they must be able to see that Bilic is not that man.

  5. Any manager deserves time to get it right and I think Slav’s had enough time to gel a team. I think we all can also accept the odd poor performance – it happens. However, for a team with some seriously decent quality to play so poorly for such a long period of time shows,something is clearly wrong with the leadership and strategy.
    Last night felt like the icing on a rather stale cake.
    It hurts to say it, as I like Slav but time for new leadership for me.
