3 reasons West Ham have started slowly this Premier League season

  • West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic is seen during the Premier League match between Burnley and West Ham United at Turf Moor

Bilic will be glad to get back on the pitch after the turmoil of the transfer window deadline day.

Ince, signed from Derby in July for an undisclosed fee reported to be slightly more than the £11m Huddersfield paid Montpellier for striker Steve Mounie, attributed some blame for the abuse to his dad.

On their return, barring heavy weekend defeats for Crystal Palace and Bournemouth, Slaven Bilic's team will kick off their second season at the stadium sitting rock-bottom of the table.

With all the political non-sense going on at the Club, it's safe to say everyone's been wrapped up in the "he said, he said" fiasco between West Ham and Sporting Portugal at the moment, and rightfully so.

Sporting director Nuno Saraiva branded David Sullivan a 'liar' - prompting West Ham's co-owner to call in his lawyers.

Bilic was an amused onlooker to that spat, but was unhappy that primary target Carvalho did not arrive.

"Three games, zero points - okay, all away from home but, yes, a bad start". We just grab our popcorn and wait for the next chapter, hoping West Ham and Sporting continue to provide a show.

Meanwhile, Sullivan's claim that Bilic turned down the chance to sign Renato Sanches and Grzegorz Krychowiak has been interpreted by fans as the chairman hanging the under-fire manager out to dry.

With one newspaper's info conflicting the other, we can never be sure on who to believe.

Sagna isn't a marquee signing, but he can be a good addition to Slaven Bilic's side if he's snapped up. "That is not exactly what happened with those two". There are many things I am not happy about. I always think that if they're booing you then you must be doing something right.

And Bilic believes that West Ham's failure to get either has left him very short of options in midfield.

There are two versions of the story out in the local media today, each one claimingWilliam Carvalho took the failure in a different way. Usually we talk after every game. That's why I'm glad it's at the London Stadium. "I do keep telling him that", said the former England Under-21 international. I have a good team. We kept it low-profile for the whole summer and it looked promising. No, that's not how I work.
