By The Coach (who is really a crypto West Ham fan!)
Bilic is an ex-West Ham great who has proven to have Wenger-like qualities in building up teams that are young and exciting and most of all effective.
He can be the new Wenger of the Premiership and I am sure he would jump at the chance to coach a Premiership team especially at his old stamping ground, Upton Park.
The West Ham Board should recognise opportunities when they arise and find a way to make them happen.
I was totally impressed with Bilic's ability to bring together young talent and shape a team that can play good football and most of all a team that is capable of beating anyone.
The style of football that Croatia displayed at Wembley the other night is indeed the football that West Ham were known for but sadly now only seen in glimpses.
It wasn’t that long ago when Sir Trevor Brooking et al and even before him when the Great Bobby Moore was the captain that West Ham were admired for the way they played the beautiful game.
Bilic is the man and the Board should be clever enough to see and grasp this opportunity to transform West Ham into a power in football again. It won't happen overnight, but Bilic more than Curbishley knows how to achieve it.
The most Curbishley can manage is to use his old and trusted methods to just keep West Ham away from trouble. But is this enough?
Having been a West Ham admirer for so many years, I think it is time the club moved on. It is time to show a little more ambition.
England will probably never be a world football power again
