Under-fire West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic looks to be edging closer to the exit door and the board could choose to take a look at Ronald Koeman after he was sacked by Everton on Monday, although Irons fans are divided on whether he would be a good appointment.
The Dutchman was sacked by the Toffees on Monday following a big summer of spending and disastrous start to the season that sees them lie 18th in the Premier League table, as well as taking just one point from nine available in the group stages of the Europa League.
Meanwhile, Bilic’s men have made a similarly disappointing beginning to the campaign though and Friday night’s 3-0 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion at the London Stadium has put the Croatian on the brink, with Koeman a likely contender to succeed him if he is sacked.
West Ham supporters were quick to give their thoughts on the former Southampton boss via social media, and they were divided with their opinions.
While some said appointing him “makes sense”, others believe he is “not good enough” based on his performance this term.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Koeman seems like such a temporary fix. We need some stability not someone who just got let go for unable to preform to standards.
