The West Ham United fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been extremely disappointed with their current campaign, with many predicting that current boss Slaven Bilic may well leave before the season comes to a close.
The Hammers were one of the surprise packages of the 2015/16 campaign yet they have failed to scale such heights during the current campaign – their maiden season in their new home on the site of the Olympic Stadium.
Last season saw the club rejuvenated with the arrival of the Croatian boss who is a former Hammers central defender and they were expected to challenge for European qualification again this campaign.
Today Bilic’s boys face a doomed looking Sunderland outfit and they will hope to get a vital three points on the board against a signed seemingly resigned to life in the Championship next season.
Our landlord looks at two players who should be dropped from the team that faces Sunderland today.
