West Ham United are facing big decisions in the days and weeks ahead after another demoralising defeat in the English Premier League. This time it was Newcastle United who piled the pressure on Slaven Bilic, picking apart his side in a 3-0 victory at St James’ Park.
It’s the first time the Hammers have started a Premier League season with three defeats since 2010/11, the year they finished bottom of the league and were relegated to the Championship.
The warning signs are there that they could have a tough season ahead and for some fans the situation is becoming untenable for Bilic, many now believing that he should leave the club.
With lots of soul searching to do over the international break, West Ham are next in action at home to Huddersfield Town and the jury is out on whether the Croatian will be in charge of that one or not.
Fans took to Twitter to share their dismay at the current situation, calling for the decision makers at the London Stadium to cut ties with the manager…
#whufc bottom of the league. You have to challenge Bilic tactics and desicion making. Our best players not starting. Defending a shambles

If Bilic has lost the dressing room he needs to go. As for who we go for;Tuchel, Rafa, Mancini or Howe with Rio would be my pref #whufc

Bilic out. There should be no excuses from him or the board, he has to go or we will be going down. #WHUFC

Remember how Big Sam got sacked 10 mins after losing to Newcastle. Can we do that now with Bilic please? #WHUFC
