    We don't have a good record with foreign managers; Grant, Zola, Macari.....

    I'm on the fence.

    Hoping for the best but kinda feeling like this was the cheapest, easiest option and probably the only one of our shortlist who actually turned up interested in the job.

    Onwards and upwards...

    I think the fact that he has played for us will make him understand what the fans expect from the team and the players etc and therefore I think he could turn out to be a good choice BUT HE HAS TO BE GIVEN TIME to get his points and tactics etc across to the players !!!!!

    I, too, suspect that he was not top of the "wanted" list, but bit their hand off when it was offered. Well, when you look at his management record to date it is patchy to say the least, and entirely unproven for the PL, so my expectations are not high. I'm just hoping he exceeds them and turns out to be an inspired selection... but I just keep remembering Zola.
    Lord knows what he is likely to bring us by way of new blood in the squad - let's hope GaS are looking after that.

    Gonna be an interesting season.

    i often used "Cult Club" in my rants and posts on various sites over the last few years while talking about Fat Sham's contempt for us having no respect for our identity, history etc etc.

    here is part of Slavs first interview.......

    "West Ham is big Club – there is something special about them – they are a cult club".

    Can't help thinking he was the last man standing for this job but I wish him well.
    Now let's sign some good players and get rid of the rubbish.

    I think we will be ok Daibs, I'm sure Bilic will attract a few quality players to the club as well.
