The 2016/17 campaign has certainly been one to forget for the Hammers thus far. West Ham have struggled for form all season long in truth, their defence has been a shambles at best on many different occasions, and the fans still seem largely unhappy with their new home away from Upton Park.
As the prospect of relegation hasn’t quite evaporated over the pretentiously named London Stadium as of yet, many Premier League onlookers have subsequently cast doubt over current West Ham manager, Slaven Bilic – and his future role in the east-end of London.
Whichever way you look at it, the determined Hammers are in a bit of a state right now…
We need 2 wins and a draw. Easier said than done. Just a good job there are 3 worse teams than us. Owners/Bilic really have 2 sort this out⚒

…but whilst Bilic has clearly made his fair share of mistakes this term…
Love Bilic but his team selection and tactics recently have been dreadful. Yet again, the team is ridiculous.

…perhaps he is not the one to blame within the grand scheme of things…
Give Bilic some funds. Let him spend. If it don't happen then rightly becomes under fire.
Free transfers and loans have killed us.

On the contrary, some believe Bilic is more than deserving of his current role at West Ham…
Give Billic the Summer to sort it out. Judge him January next year. #whufc

…especially after everything that transpired with a certain wantaway Frenchman earlier on this season…
Payet said he wanted to be with his family. He now says he was bored by Bilic. So he's not a snake after all…in fact he's a lying snake.

But as modern day football is seemingly filled with fickle fans and short-sighted memories these days…
'Bilic Out' Brigade in full force. I know we have a stadium like the Emirates but our fans have become like Arsenal's too. Give him a chance

…Bilic really has to turn things around at West Ham sooner rather than later!
Time Bilic answered some hard questions. Fitness of team. Shape, tactics; so easy to counter against. Right back. He’s had it easy off us.
