I'll believe when I see it.

Well often they are just rumours, but I have heard a rumour that the players were given the day off so things don't leak but there was a meeting and bilic is gone. Either resigned or sacked. Anyway my thoughts are the title of the thread. I certainly hope I wake tomorrow to a conformation on that one.

Slav is a decent man,& what i liked about him most was you always got an honest opinion from him,which imo is very rare from a manager these days,but there is no sentiment in football so the time is up...

Have not seen or heard any sign of Bilic being shown the door so its a matter of seeing or hearing to be believed. Always thought that Bilic would be a success as his experiance as a manager with both Croatia and his time in Turkey, both bloody hard tasks would suit his time in th Prem, If this is true, well, whose next? Do we need a strict disciplinarian or in today's game are the players refusing to stand for a strict regime? We must get the players to play for the club for one and a half seasons we have seen no commitment from the bulk of the team. Take Zaza for instance, absolute crap with us, pisses of to Valencia and is a full member of the team and scoring regularly, why not with us? Just what is the problem and can we hope that a new broom can sweep out all the crap and get the team playing for each other and the club? Time will tell, but Tempus Fugit as they say and that is the killer.

A one tournament " success" as Croatia manage as well. My overriding memory of Bilic as national manager is watching him clueless on the touchline being beaten by Fatih Terims Turkey who hsd nearly all their players injured and suspended and fielded the remaining XI they had left. I stand to be corrected, but I seem to recall the guy in gosl wasn't even a goalkeeper.

I fully agree with H65 I've been a Bilic advocate since Zola got appointed. I've always wanted him in and backed him throughout. His honesty is second to none, he never dresses up a situation and tells it how it is warts and all. But I have to say for the sake of my beloved club his time is up. We cannot move forward anymore under his leadership. The players are not a cohesive unit and Bilic is a spent force trying to get anything out of them. Enough is enough. As for who's next it's a case of throw a six to start.........

I also still have a soft spot for him but fear he has lost the changing room. Would it help by bringing in a very strong No2 / Assistant?

for me, thats a no no. once the manager has lost the players and seemingly can't motivate anyone, then he has to go end of. what you end up with is the assistant actually being the one in charge and bilic a lame duck. pointless imo. i get all this 'i like bilic etc' but come on, we all liked zola, but that doesnt mean they warrant being in charge of the club if they aren't up to it. I'm also tired of hearing this 'he's honest' etc, what id like to see from him once in a while is to show some enthusiasm for turning things round. after a bad loss, i don't see the volume getting turned up, getting the players out on the training pitch doing things harder etc, i don't see the drive, the anger after a loss, just a sort of mumbling, bewildered man saying the same things time and time again. for me if i were him and saw arnautovic's performance or lack of it, id be seething. this is a player I've paid 25 mill for, put my faith in him after some totally pathetic on field behaviour and put him in the starting line up..only for him to roam around looking like he doesnt want to be there.

Absolutely spot on dicksy. A lot of what has been said to bAck bilic holds no water at all. His whole demeanour ATM is dragging players down. The players are reflecting the mood of the players! Doesn't he realise that? He needs to be positive and up for it. Just listened to dyche interview after the game, he was upbeat and funny. If you have a manager naturally upbeat it rubs off on the players. Listening to bilic ATM I just want to top myself.

good point but maybe he just needs someone to take some of the heat, another West Ham favourite? I think its different to Zola, he never wore the shirt and like a stick of rock was Chavski through and through. Do you remember the first game against Chelsea with Zola in charge? Football focus asked him would he celebrate if West Ham score... Chance would be a fine thing!!! Keep smiling!

like in my thread "caretaker manager" who should we go for as a permanent appointment when it comes to it? more of the same as in the usual suspects? or maybe like david dein did at the gooners all those years ago by bringing in wenger....WHO is this guy? many people asked but clearly the homework had been done and his impact on the prem is there for all to see.Personally i dont think our board have the imagination or patience to make such an appointment but also understand right now is not the time for that so a caretaker boss it has to be and if thats the case it has to be someone of such character the players sit up and take note immediately otherwise what would be the point of it....

I don't believe a word of this but just in case you all need cheering up reading in the mirror that we are all gonna be saved because Mancini is going to be our new manager I am so happy I could just jump over a dolls house. The only foreign managers I would take is Manuel Pellegrini or Di Canio the rest can have a bath. Why do we keep going for foreign managers wots the matter with Coleman or an English manager to fit West hams new Film star image

Pardew apart, only English manager I would give time to who I genuinely believe we could tempt here would be Marc Warburton. Be nice if they could get Big Sam back but can't see that happening sadly.

so all this standing by our managers is nonsense as we thought. they can't get rid because theres no one to take over. Ronald de boer is waiting by the phone….lol. i really don't understand this 3 more games, 2 more games. what happens if he wins them? then how many games does he have? do we start over until he loses badly again, and then give him 1 game…is this some sort of you've got 3 lives left, then 2 then 1 game show?
