The latest set back was a 3-0 reverse at previously winless Newcastle United at St James’ Park as the Hammers ended their three-game away trip with three loses, ten goals conceded and just two scored.
Hammers fans have started to turn on Bilic following the dismal start to the new campaign and it is believed the manager will be given the next four games to save his managerial career in east London after the international break.
We all have our opinions, but what do the football experts think of Bilic and West Ham’s current predicament?
Jason Burt – Daily Telegraph
“The nature of the defeat has caused real ruptures at West Ham. I think there’s real concern now, losing all three games and conceding 10 goals.
“I think it’s a real hangover from last season, when there was talk as to whether Bilic would survive.
“I think they’re going to have a discussion with the manager this week, possibly as early as Monday. They do have a Monday debrief at West Ham anyway, but I think it’s going to take on a new dimension going into the international break.
“It seems crazy, in some ways, three games into the season after letting him bring in the players he wants, and I think it would be harsh. But the concern is there from the board.”

“The judgement shouldn’t be so quick. What I don’t understand is, if they had doubts coming out of last season, why allow Bilic the investment and wages, I mean Chicharito, Pablo Zabaleta and Joe Hart are big wage investments as much as anything else.
“To make a change so quickly would be another example of the craziness of the business sometimes, to make this huge investment and without even playing a home game to get rid of him. I would have thought he’s done enough to earn a bit more time.”

“You look at his recruiting of Hart, Zalabeta and Hernandez, and it actually doesn’t look good. Zabaleta has been found out quickly, a brilliant player for Manchester City, but was on the wane. Hart has been poor.
“Hernandez, people were saying how they couldn’t understand why Manchester United got rid of him. I could understand why they got rid of him, because every time he started a game he barely made an impact.”
