Former Tottenham Hotspur player and popular football presenter, Alan Brazil expects Crystal Palace and West Ham to sack their respective managers.
West Ham United lost 3-0 to Newcastle United, and Crystal Palace lost 2-0 to Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday.
Both West Ham and Crystal Palace have made a poor start to their 2017/18 Premier League campaign, and are winless in their opening three matches.
The Hammers have been active in the summer transfer window, with Slaven Bilic making as many as five new signings. However, despite adding a new right-back and a goalkeeper, they have conceded 10 goals already.
Palace have gone through a rebuilding phase under a new manager – Frank de Boer. BBC pundit and former Spurs player, Garth Crooks has criticised De Boer for not being able to inject “inspiration” into the side.
Alan Brazil also notes that these two managers are most likely to get sacked, saying their “body language tells you loads”. He tweeted:
Good bye Slavan at West Ham and good bye Frank de Boer... I know it's early but body language tells you loads!— Alan Brazil (@alanbrazil) August 26, 2017
Football fans have reacted to his comment on Twitter, with many reminding him that it is too early to make a statement like this.
He hasn't got a clue bens he's pissed!— Josh Broughton (@JoshCFC25) August 26, 2017
West Ham haven't had a great fixture list to start the season and were unlucky against Southampton— Andy Young (@ThisIsAndyYoung) August 26, 2017
Good bye to your liver Brazil first I reckon !— tobi keet⚒ (@tobikeet) August 26, 2017
Getting rid of Bilic won't solve anything if Sulliivan and Brady are still there. what other manager worth his salt would work for them?— colin willsher (@mahawkes) August 26, 2017
I agree Alan with bilic hasn't sorted our defence out and looks like the players aren't bothered— James Ashley (@jamesgaymer1) August 26, 2017
They will both be fighting over big sam to save them again— Roy Connelly (@RoyRpcjpc) August 26, 2017
Really? Bilic probably but De Boer already?— Suffolk Geordie (@SuffolkGeordie) August 26, 2017
Really? Get Frank de Boer into English football & sack him after 3 games!?— Lionel Curie (@currybags) August 26, 2017
Don't be silly....Bilic maybe he's been there before
It used to be October… now we can’t get out of August without sackings— Dorrans Loyal ⚪️ (@LoyalBluenose86) August 26, 2017
