Exclusive: 76% of West Ham fans think Bilic deserves new deal

It’s been a curious season at West Ham.

The Hammers started the season poorly, counter-intuitively picked up their form after talismanic midfielder Dimitri Payet was exiled from the first-team squad and are now amid a run of four games without a win in the Premier League.

It’s left the Irons lingering just below the Premier League’s halfway line in eleventh place and considering the investment last summer, not to mention their illustrious new stadium, anything other than getting to the other side of it before the end of the campaign will be deemed a disappointment.

Accordingly, question marks have lingered over Slaven Bilic in recent weeks, with West Ham yet to offer him the chance to extend his contract beyond the end of next season – which will undoubtedly lead to complications over the next twelve months.

With that in mind, we discussed the pros and cons of giving Bilic a new deal earlier this week, before giving Hammers fans the chance to have their say by voting in our exclusive poll.

Well, the results are now in and a staggering 76% of those took part believe the Croatian gaffer deserves a new deal at the London Stadium. Whether David Gold and Sullivan agree, however, remains to be seen.
