Worrying that nothing has been announced yet. Im just waiting for the Matt Wilson tweet saying things have broken down over his back room staff. Been here before with Sherwood and then we got Irvine! Hope I'm wrong.

Good pal of mine a Hammers STC - in his words:-

Attacking wise very strong
Defensively all over the gaff

That does seem to be the general view, however it is worth noting that he has the best points to game ratio out of all West Ham's managers.

Just wondering who his backroom staff are and what positions they'll take.
Are we switching back to a manager and coaches or a head coach and ?

I think he has a couple of Croatians if this is anything to go by:

Think they were the same guys who were with him at the National Team.

The distinction between Head Coach and Manager for us was related to the use of a DoF, so I would dare say he would stay as Head Coach

Bilic worked with 3 coaches at West Ham who were very much "team Bilic"

Miljenko Rak - Fitness coach with a background in multiple sports prior to working with Bilic from his time with the Croatian national team onwards. Now over 70 probably retired

Nicola Jurcevic - Long term assistant again from the Croatian national team. Currently managing Azerbaijan.

Edin Terzic Joined Bilic at Beşiktaş from the ranks of the Dortmund youth set up. Left West Ham when Bilic was fired and is currently back at Dortmund where he is working with their first team.

I doubt whether he will be getting this band back together at the Albion. I think it will be a new team.

Although Billic wouldn't have been my first choice, I realise it could have been alot worse.
He will have first hand knowledge for the recruitment of Croat players, (although not necessarily special knowledge of other European players), but for a small country, Croatia punches well above its weight. Their players also always seem to be tenacious vigorous types. If it is Billic, he deserves a fair chance. A 3 year contract would be quite generous from the club, but maybe that is the minimum they could negotiate.

If it's SB, I wish him all the best, but tbh his record doesn't inspire me and he has no experience of the championship as a manager and we had an opportunity to he Hughton and imo he ticked all the boxes apart from he was probably on gardening leave and therefore didn't fit Jenkins free criteria.

 I would've preferred Hughton but the days of a manager coming in and building a team maybe old hat in these days of instant gratification .                                                                                         It's a 24/7 soap opera now and maybe a Bilic will give us a media profile and thrills and spills that others wouldn't. Hopefully he'll be easier to warm to than RDM and see out at least 2 years of his contract

Don't know if Bilic would have been my first choice, but I'm liking the different direction things are hopefully/eventually going - we will all have to get behind him or whoever

Would just like to see him installed as manager now and start to piece together a plan as to how we are going to tackle the season. Said previpusly, in comparison to a number of the other 'candidates' (names banded about), I would certainly take Bilic. My first choice would have been SJ but as a back up, I would welcome Bilic.

Sacked by all accounts, wonder if that is because he held talks with us behind their backs? Sacked Rowett for the same reasons apparently

Yep, saying he's been, or about to be, sacked which just seems absolutely bonkers. Can only think it's a falling out over money.
Too late for him to be in the frame for us though, Bilic seems nailed on, which I'm happy with to be honest. Monk has done a good job, but his football's not great and he just seems unlucky as fudge! He's like Uncle Albert off Only Fools and Horses, every ship he sails on ends up sinking!

I hope not !!!

We can't have this matter going on any longer. It looks like its  Bilic . Lets get him in and start building a squad for next season.

Can't find anything from reliable sources that Monk has been sacked.

Hoping to hear confirmation of Bilic today.

Albion just don't do hurrying.  ;D

Matt Wilson update regarding Bilic https://www.expressandstar.com/sport/football/west-bromwich-albion/2019/06/13/west-brom-set-to-appoint-slaven-billic-as-head-coach/
Update my ar**. There isn't a single word in the article that hasn't been said in other media outlets. I sometimes think Matt Wilson just sits around all day reading other newspapers and scouring the internet, rather than actually going out into the world, making contacts, and trying to get some new information.

It is an update, but only if your sole source of news is the Express & Star.
