There won’t be a problem with wages, Bilic will be who lai wants. Remember the below article after we sacked Pulis - https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/11/23/slaven-bilic-rejects-chance-become-west-broms-new-manager/amp/

I imagine lai has links with Bilic somehow. Also Bilic’s old club have announced he has signed for us on twitter. Not sure if the know something we don’t.

Just had another look and can’t see it now, the page had 1.4m followers so assumed it was legit.

Sure Nigel Adkins was mentioned somewhere on this thread, well he's just left Hull but further talks are expected between him and Hull

Looks to be a definite parting of the ways. To be honest if his name was under consideration then I would have expected it have cropped up in the press not a difficult link to make.

Adkins fits in with us researching the A to C headings of managers - Bilic, Bruno, Appleton, Cowley,  ;D

I had bet on him 3 weeks ago ticks a lot of boxes noticed he was out of contract would be surprised if we haven’t spoken to him

What are you basing that on? Bilic got West Ham to 7th and 11th place finishes in the Prem League.

Adkins leaving Hull worries me that we could now leave an appointment to early July.




As an aside can we jib this a-z nonsense. Not remotely funny (see Zippy's post in Woodman) and clutters up the thread which is busy enough with rumours and innuendo as it is.

Just saying he could join a Championship Side get distracted for doing very well and leave us but would happily take him I think he is a great guy and great manager.

Good manager though and I'd add him to my short list of people I'd be happy to get the job: Jokanovic, Hughton, Pearson, Bilic and Adkins. He'll probably end up at Swansea or Middlesbrough though.

Someone saying on another forum we can’t agree terms with Bilic so it’s looking unlikely. When I heard Atkins had gone I just knew something could possibly be up

someone ITK or just someone?
Adkins has been in discussions with Hull about his position for a few months and it always looked likely that he would leave (according to Hull Daily Mail), so the club must have been aware of it before now....I don't think he's in the running to be honest.

I still expect Bilic to be announced soon.

It actually says "if they can agree terms".

Yes I was as guilty as you initially at not looking into the article. Misquote. No story at the moment. Talks apparently continuing.

Yes, this is correct.

Atkins would be a better option for me. Knows the Championship and its players, has promotions on his CV and his teams play decent football. Also think he'd be better at bringing on the crop of promising youngsters we have coming through.

Don't get me wrong, I think Bilic is a good choice, but there is a risk element since his knowledge of Championship football is limited to say the least.

I think he's one of a number of good managers available now - I would be happy with him or Bilic.

I would prefer Bilic, we would stand a better chance should we go up. Adkins has done well mainly in lower leagues, another Kenny Jacket imo.
