Slaven will put things right

Daily Mail football reporter Sam Cunningham is confident Slaven Bilic will turn the Club's fortunes around following a disappointing start to the campaign.

Cunningham has covered the Hammers both home and abroad this season and feels the situation could look a lot different by the time the next international break comes around.....

It was another interesting press conference with Slaven Bilic on Tuesday in the build-up to the Accrington Stanley game and he was honest as always when probed about the current situation at the Club.

He admitted that things are not going right at the moment and said there was a problem that they need to address quickly.

He has held a meeting with the players and has made his feelings known and I am sure he will be looking for an immediate reaction when they play on Wednesday night.

They obviously need to make the situation better.

I have been fortunate enough to deal a lot with Slaven in recent weeks following the Europa League campaign and at one point he even joked with me that he was seeing me more than his wife!

I have always found him really good to deal with and always gives you a straight answer, no matter what the question is.

One of his major soundbites to come out of the press conference was the three mega games and cup finals his team are now facing and you have to say they are games that are all winnable.

In two-weeks time the Club can be much in a much rosier position if they manage to win all of them and then all of a sudden the whole atmosphere has changed and the season has completely turned around.

There have been reports that Slaven's future could come into question and that his contract talks have been put on hold.

I really don't believe that West Ham would consider letting him go as he has done a great job since he got there and there is enough quality in the squad to turn things around.

Slaven made it clear he is not worried about the contract talks and is focused solely on putting things right on the pitch.

He revealed that he will play a mixed team against Accrington and it is the chance for him to see a few of the players who have not been given a chance and this is a real opportunity for them to play their way into the first-team.

The injury situation is slowly clearing up and they have still got a very good squad. A victory in the cup can give you back a lot of confidence and it will set them up nicely for the Southampton game on Sunday.
