West Ham United announced on their official website on Monday that they had relieved Slaven Bilic of his duties, and West Bromwich Albion fans are keen for him to replace the under-fire Tony Pulis.
The Croatian was sacked on the back of a 4-1 defeat against Liverpool at the London Stadium on Saturday, which left the Irons in the relegation zone with just two wins from their 11 Premier League matches this season.
However, the Baggies are just two places and one point above the east London outfit having won the same number of games, and they are without a victory in all competitions since they beat Burnley 1-0 in August.
West Brom supporters were quick to have their say on the Croatian becoming available via social media, and while one simply urged the west Midlands club to “go get Bilic”, another said “I do rate him” despite the difficulties he has had with West Ham this term.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Anyone but Pulis 😂

Yes. I do worry that the West Ham experience has taken its toll, and our environment is hardly much better at the moment. But I do rate him.
