After a relatively positive ten-man showing against Burnley last weekend, West Ham United fans were hopeful that victory over newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion on Friday night could be the catalyst to kickstart the club’s season.

However, to say things did not go to plan is an understatement.

A 3-0 West Ham defeat to modest opposition and a performance that led to a mass exodus of Hammers supporters well before the final whistle means that Slaven Bilic’s position at the club looks untenable.

With the move to the London Stadium, ambition in the transfer market and hopes of breaking into the Premier League top six, it should be a good time to be an Irons supporter at the moment.

However, the team simply are not responding to Bilic’s management and as such it is surely time that he either resigns or the board decide a change in necessary.

While the Croat has lost the faith of a large majority of the West Ham fans over recent weeks and months, the Brighton defeat looks to have been the final breaking point for the remainder.

The Hammers supporters have been taking to Twitter in the aftermath of the game, with the call for Bilic’s head heightening.

The West Ham boss looked and sounded completely dejected in his after-match comments, with it surely only a matter of time before Gold, Sullivan and Brady wield the axe.

Here are the key tweets of disgruntled Hammers supporters asking the club to make the required change.
