Is It Time for Slaven Bilic to Go?

Is It Time for Slaven Bilic to Go?

A very pertinent question we would say after the inept display the side produced against a Brighton side who have just come up from the Championship.

After being promised the world when we abandoned the Boleyn Ground to come to Stratford, we`re now in the position whereby if Leicester beat Swansea, today, West Ham will be back in the relegation places in the Premier League.

It`s not the scenario we were promised when we left our traditional home, is it?

After the game, Slaven Bilic didn`t appear to show any concerns that, following the disastrous start to the season he could well be the next Premier League manager to be axed.

Instead the Croatian simply replied that he was "not worried" before adding,

'The speculation was here before.

'I'm manager of the team. I don't want to hide behind anything. It's my responsibility and it's up to the board.'

'We've been here before and we managed to turn it around.

'I'm not worried - worried is a bad word. I am strong and all that and on the other hand it's not a question for me about my future.

'I know what I feel. I can't say everything publicly. I've tried my best but when you lose 3-0 at home to Brighton I wouldn't be surprised with anything.'

Has Bilic`s tenure as the maanger of West Ham United Football Club run its course?

Or should he be given, as they say, more time?
