West Ham fans feel drastic action is only solution to keep stars like Javier Hernandez

Slaven Bilic, Manager of West Ham United looks on prior to the Premier League match between West Ham United and Swansea City at London Stadium on September 30, 2017 in London, England.

Murmurs of discontent are getting stronger at West Ham United after the club's disappointing start to the new season.

Slaven Bilic, Manager of West Ham United looks on prior to the Premier League match between West Ham United and Swansea City at London Stadium on September 30, 2017 in London, England.

The Hammers have won just two of their opening seven Premier League matches and sit 15th in the table.

A turgid performance in the last gasp 1-0 win over Swansea City last time out has done little to ease the mounting pressure on Slaven Bilic.

Criticised for his lack of tactical acumen and team selection, the likes of Carlo Ancelotti, Thomas Tuchel and Rafa Benitez have been linked as potential replacements should owners David Sullivan and David Gold relieve the Croatian of his duties.

The poor start, coupled with playing certain players out of position like Javier Hernandez, has led to speculation the likes of Chicharito, Michail Antonio and Manuel Lanzini could leave the club.

Hernandez has denied reports he wants swift January exit to Spain while Liverpool and Chelsea have been linked with key playmaker Lanzini and Hammer of the Year Antonio.

Now there are growing calls from West Ham fans for the board to act in order to keep star players at the club by dismissing Bilic.

Commenting on a HITC.com story on Hernandez, Hammers fan Canchas says the answer to keeping Hernandez at the club is 'incredibly simple'.

"Remove the cause and stop doing this ridiculous imitation of Einstein's definition of an idiot. Bilic is not going to change, neither will he improve. He is what he is.

"Don't forget he only got the job because he was " the last man standing" not because he was the best that was lined up for the job." 

That reaction is mirrored on social media with supporters reaching a tipping point with the manager.
