Slaven Bilic Sacked As West Ham Manager
West Ham United have parted company with Slaven Bilic, with the Hammers currently lying in the relegation zone with just two wins from their opening 11 Premier League games.
Many Hammers fans became disillusioned with the Croatian's management of the first team after a difficult second season in which they finished 11th after Bilic enjoyed an impressive, Dimitri Payet inspired debut campaign where West Ham placed seventh in the Premier League.
The Croatian bought himself some extra time when under pressure with a dramatic 3-2 comeback victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley in the League Cup two weeks ago, but after throwing away a two goal lead to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park a few days later and then being demolished 4-1 by Liverpool on Saturday, the Hammers' board have decided that the former Besiktas boss' time is up at the London Stadium.
The club are expected to make an official announcement at lunchtime, per Darren Lewis of the Mirror.
Former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes is expected to take over as manager until the end of the season. The Scotsman's last job was managing Sunderland to relegation, last season.

Hammers fans, who would you like to see replace Bilic? Is Moyes the right choice given his terrible record in his last three jobs or does he deserve another chance in the Premier League?
