It was always about Sullivan and his ****ing arrogance with regards player recruitment (or lack of it)

Some of us always did, it's the many that were buying into the fitness smokescreen bull**** flung Bilics way although when you took a step back and analysed it you could see right through it. It simply didn't add up for me when the first season under him home and away we were as fit as fleas.

It all centres around the Divs in charge and that poxy **** Hole stadium that's slowly killing us since we moved in.

Play your first 4 games away??? :lol: ****ing jokers. No wonder Bilic has been up against it from the off.

They had a choice to get rid of Slav end of last season If they truly didn't think he could progress us, fine I wouldn't be against that as they clearly didn't want to offer him a new contract which undermined his position all the time. But once the season got under way and relegation was the fear, then they should have just touched it out till he kept us up like he did last season.

They just couldn't hold their nerve and see the season out leaving Bilic to it.

One of Bilic’s many attributes was his ability to drag the team out of a downward spiral and get them winning again. I have no confidence that Moyes can do that.

I'd like to think that Slav got out in time to keep his dignity and reputation intact. Which is more than can be said for our board and some of our overpaid players.

Given the one point from a possible nine start by Moyes, is anyone still deluded enough to think that our current league position is all down to Bilic.

Come back SB. All is forgiven.

Hope he takes some time off, gets his head sorted and then wherever he ends up I wish him every success. I think he get another international gig.

Perhaps he's busy writing his memoirs on his time at West Ham.....

Only a very few ever made that claim however, even amongst those who supported his replacement towards the end.

Top 8 squad I kept reading on here. All Bilic's fault they said.

How's that working out?

I miss having to turn up the TV every time Slaven spoke to a camera.

If you watch the interviews from his first season it's quite clear that he was against the move from day one. Very hestitant to speak much about it, very fond of the Boeyn. Because he ain't stupid
