According to the reliable @ExWHUemployee in his latest West Ham Way article, some of West Ham United’s players don’t want to play for under-fire manager Slaven Bilic anymore, and Irons fans have been having their say on the situation.
Following a poor start to the season, which included a 3-0 defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion at the London Stadium on Friday, the Hammers are 16th in the Premier League table having picked up just two wins from their opening nine fixtures of the season.
A number of players put in disappointing performances against the Seagulls, while it is clear to see that many haven’t been at their best this season, which perhaps support the West Ham Way post.
West Ham supporters were quick to have their say on the subject via social media, and while some said that “beyond farcical” that the players back him one minute and not the next, others said to “sell them”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
If I was an owner I’d be balling out the players as they should have no say who manages them they are employees not employers

Some players don’t deserve to play for West Ham full stop

Sell them then. Too much player power.

I’m sorry but this has got to be a sign to people high up that we need change

Once that happens you need to drop axe straight away or it will just cost your more points

Absolutely but they need to question their own attitude too!
