West Ham United have finally settled on the successor to Sam Alardyce in the form of former Hammers player Slaven Bilic.
The Croatian played for only one season at the East London club but developed enough of a following that his return as a manager is being welcomed as a prodigal son returning. Bilic rose to managerial prominence despite a questionable track record. Bilic managed a failed World Cup qualifying attempt for his native Croatia during the 2010 World Cup cycle and failed to get out of the group stage at Euro 2012. He transitioned to club management after the Euros ended and moved to Lokomotiv Moscow where he was sacked after leading Lokomotiv to their worst ever finish in the Russian championship established in 1992. His tenure at Besiktas was equally unremarkable. Jun 9 - 1:49 PM

David Sullivan, the West Ham owner, has promised the club two big signings and an exciting new boss.

With Sam Allardyce now gone and West Ham moving to the Olympic Stadium, there is reason to be excited as a Hammers fan right now. The club have some good pieces already in place but have been absolutely killed by injuries in the past couple of seasons and if they bring in two more big signings, they could have a lot to cheer for next season. The first big signing should be coming soon, so stay tuned.

West Ham have announced that they will not renew Sam Allardyce's contract as manager of the club.

Allardyce was given an ultimatum at the beginning of the season to finish 10th or not be given another chance and the owners have kept their word. Allardyce did a respectable job, finishing 12th despite a number of long-term injuries to his top players, but it wasn't enough for management and he will not be in London next season. Allardyce should will be able to find a job in a timely manner.

West Ham have recruited former striker Teddy Sheringham as an assistant/advisor to Sam Allardyce in an attempt to improve the club's attack.

Sam Allardyce has been criticized over and over again for his boring style of football and Teddy Sheringham is expected to improve on that. Allardyce has also been given an ultimatum of finishing in the top 10 if he wants a new contract after his expires at the end of next season. The club are going out and spending this summer in an attempt to provide him with everything he needs to succeed. It's top 10 or nothing for Allardyce and West Ham this year.

Sam Allardyce will remain as manager of West Ham United next season.

There were plenty of rumors about Allardyce's job in recent weeks but the board have decided to give him another chance. Big Sam has been criticized by fans for his boring style of football and lack of attacking flair. The club have addressed those problems by demanding a top 10 finish and "more entertainment". Big Sam will reportedly hire a new attacking coach, someone who can bring the excitement back to London. The signing of striker Zarate is a great sign of West Ham's intentions for next season and we can expect better football from them in years ahead.
