Is there a more disappointing club than West Ham United this season? Maybe Everton?
Regardless, early Monday morning it broke that Slaven Bilić would no longer be their manager. After claiming just nine points from their first 11 league matches, enough was enough. Bilić’s stint with the club would end after a 1-4 defeat to Liverpool on Saturday.
Now, nobody was expecting West Ham to compete for the title or anything of the sort. But a top-half finish shouldn’t have been out of the question.
Instead, this season is indicating anything but. In two full seasons under the Croatian manager, the Hammers would finish seventh and 11th, respectively. This sudden drop-off, however, is a little too much to let ride.
So, who will be taking Bilić’s place? All reports point to… David Moyes. That is, despite fans not being on board in the slightest.
West Ham hierarchy been shaken by fans response to prospect of David Moyes becoming their next manager but he is still expected to take over
