It does not affect me. If it affected me I would be dead by now. It is not about the last few days, it is almost a year now. Do I enjoy this situation? No. But does it affect me? No, I am trying to do my job.feedback

Slaven Bilic quotes

Sep 18 2017

It is not wide wide, we are playing with three or five at the back, so it is more off the striker. I don't think this position is like left-midfield. It is like playing behind the striker with another player like [Michail] Antonio.feedback

Sep 16 2017

Fair enough, it didn't have to be red, but a lot of times I've seen red for that, especially when you play at home, to be fair.feedback

Sep 16 2017

To be fair, we looked to get more and that was three points and you have to say the quality in the last third was missing, either with a cross or a reaction from a cross or something, or when we had good one-on-ones in the last 20 minutes, when they opened a little bit.feedback

Sep 16 2017

We needed one of our players, especially our wide players one-against-one in wide positions, to do a bit better. He didn't do anything wrong there because of two things – one, Foster wasn't last man because two players came behind, and second, that challenge was mistimed and it wasn't that brutal, so fair enough.feedback

Sep 16 2017

It's been a good week for us. We were hoping we would get three points, but to get another clean sheet and a point away from home, you can't be too negative about it.feedback

Sep 16 2017

To be fair, it looked to me to be a red card, but when I saw it again I can't blame the referee.feedback

Sep 11 2017

I am happy for the lads, I am happy for the whole club. It was a very important game for us. We started with three away games but three defeats – it was a must-win game.feedback

Sep 11 2017

That's the way he's going to get a new contract, or play again for Senegal, or get a move: if he plays good.feedback

Sep 11 2017

The fact is he (Sakho) wanted to go there. He did a medical, but the club decided not to sell him and he's back. He looks good in training. Hopefully he is going to stay like that for a long time. Because he will know that until January he is a West Ham player.feedback

Sep 11 2017

That is not exactly what happened with those two you mention. I wanted Carvalho.feedback

Sep 08 2017

I haven't been told my job is on the line. But we have zero points after three games. We have to start winning. I think about it as a good job and where I have to put my energy is working and talking with the lads.feedback

Sep 08 2017

Can it be done in January? That's January, come on. Yes. I'm expecting it, yes. But who thinks about January now? OK, definitely. But January we have 17 games until then, many.feedback

Sep 08 2017

To be fair, I'm smiling, I'm laughing, I'm joking. I'm frustated because we didn't get the player, of course. I've been trying to get him for a couple of years.feedback

Sep 08 2017 - Portugal

Why didn't happen? I think it was definitely money. I know I wanted the player but as far as I know, we have been in talks with Sporting Lisbon. Official or not, I don't know. I don't do these things. I suggested the player, I wanted the player and we talked to them. It didn't happen because the money was too high.feedback

Aug 26 2017

We didn't play good, we have to admit it, they were the better side. The goals helped them. They deserved those goals because they pressured high up the pitch.feedback

Aug 26 2017

We have to admit they were better in everything, especially in determination and wanting to win second balls and making a transition when doing that. We didn't deserve anything. We had a midweek game but that had nothing to do with [the] performance.feedback

Aug 26 2017

We made a mistake that led to their first goal and it gave them a boost. We came back in the second half and we better in the first 10 minutes, but it's a game of mistakes. We didn't play good, we have to admit it, they were the better side. The goals helped them. They deserved those goals because they pressured high up the pitch.feedback

Aug 25 2017

If he looks to me fit enough, of course he's going to be in the squad. If he doesn't look fit enough he isn't going to be in the squad - it's that simple.feedback

Aug 25 2017

When he is fit we all know he is a major player.feedback

Aug 24 2017

You can't do those kind of things. I am fuming, still now – you can feel. I am fuming, but it happened. But no more. Not him, not anybody else. I am confident the message got through.feedback

Aug 24 2017

The players, they know and they can't let the team down and also of course him. And whoever does those kind of things will get the fine, of course. He will get fined.feedback

Aug 23 2017

He was angry at himself. He still is. He regrets it, so he is angry at himself. But he can't do it any more.feedback

Aug 23 2017

I said, Yes, it is nice.' Of course it is nice, but you can't do that. That's it.feedback

Aug 13 2017

It was the first game of the season. We cannot lose confidence. It was against Man United and we conceded four goals.feedback

Aug 13 2017

We aren't going to forget about this game in a hurry.feedback

Jul 27 2017

He got a fantastic offer last night. Ideally I wanted to have a different scenario but the offer was so good and I told him to be proud.feedback

Jul 27 2017

The step that he made from coming here as a no-name to being a player a lot of Championship clubs want is a big bonus for him so he went to discuss personal terms. He is a very good and promising player.feedback

Jul 27 2017

We rate him, want to give him a new deal and hopefully he will accept it. He is a very ambitious guy, a long time at West Ham and the club is very respectful towards him. We want to help him. It's a challenge between him and Joe.feedback

Jul 27 2017

He is a fantastic player. Very experienced and has been everywhere and has scored goals. He runs, he presses, everything. He was our number one target on our list of strikers.feedback

Jul 14 2017

You have [Justin] Bieber who is earning more than the Rolling Stones, not to mention Led Zeppelin or Elvis Presley. Everything cracked. Nothing is normal anymore.feedback

Jul 11 2017

He is huge! People say this and that, the way his teams play, but he marked last 15 years in football.feedback

Jul 11 2017 - Manchester United

I like Mourinho and Jose likes me. Whenever we play, after the game we sit down in our office and talk.feedback

Jun 21 2017

It is an important statement but without Reece it would not be possible. He wanted to stay. Those offers and interest from the other clubs were not just rumours in the newspapers, they were real. So we are delighted he is staying with us.feedback

Jun 21 2017

Those kind of transfers are for the biggest clubs who can spend £20million on someone who will not be in the squad for a year or will give him a loan. We can't buy someone of his quality. Maybe abroad if we are quick, but a British one? No way.feedback

Jun 20 2017

I obviously know the Bundesliga very well from my years at Gladbach and I'm convinced I will be able to make the impact that TSG are hoping for. I would like to thank Havard for his commitment and hard work last season. He is an excellent professional and we wish him all the very best at Hoffenheim.feedback

May 23 2017

Now you can still see it when he plays. He plays very rarely but I watched Stoke against Liverpool the other day. He came on and, with a couple of passes, he broke their defence.feedback

May 23 2017

So of course he is showing that when he plays, but he plays very rarely. When he is on fire he is a great player. Is he the sort of striker we would look at? We are going to see. We have our list of strikers.feedback

May 14 2017

We are going to see. We have our list of strikers. If you go back two or three seasons he was unbelievable. He plays very rarely but I watched Stoke against Liverpool. He came on and, with a couple of passes, he broke their defence. So of course he is showing that when he plays, but he plays very rarely.feedback

May 12 2017

Andy Carroll won't be able to play against Liverpool. He's still feeling his groin. It's nothing major but he will miss the game. It is not a subject for now, but Andy is kind of a player that has such a big impact on our game that we won't give up on him. Especially now, as this has nothing to do with lifestyle or not being committed enough. He works really hard, it was bad luck and, as I said, I will never give up on him. On the other hand, it is no good having a player whose name you put down first, second or third and can't rely on him.feedback

May 05 2017

I think I'm doing a good job. I don't like to moan, but we have had many obstacles during this season which are quite rare in football. That is more to talk about after the season than now.feedback

May 05 2017

I don't care. When my team is playing like this I'm happy.feedback

May 04 2017

It's not the time to talk about transfers. We are talking about targets with the staff and the board, but not in public.feedback

May 04 2017

It's not the time to talk about my situation. It's the time to talk about the club. I'm very calm and focused on the game.feedback

May 04 2017

I have nothing but praise for them [Tottenham]. When I watch them I wonder how Chelsea made that gap, but they had two periods without Harry Kane. Spurs are in form, but they've been in form for two months. We are positive, four unbeaten and three clean sheets in four games. Yes, they are electric, with confidence, pace, passing and changing positions and everything, but our form also improved. Spurs are very versatile. Sometimes you know where the ball is going, but you can't stop it because of the quality.feedback

Apr 28 2017

If you talk about Sturridge as a player, especially if you go back two or three seasons, he was unbelievable. But then he wasn't a subject for West Ham. Now you can still see it when he plays. He plays very rarely but I watched Stoke against Liverpool the other day. He came on and, with a couple of passes, he broke their defence. So of course he is showing that when he plays, but he plays very rarely. When he is on fire he is a great player. Is he the sort of striker we would look at? We are going to see. We have our list of strikers.feedback

Apr 28 2017

Offensively we did everything in terms of determination, commitment, running. But we lacked a bit of spark, a bit of quality to make a good decision to do something. We are going to talk about the new season after this season. We've got positions we would like to fill. Last year we did something but we didn't fill all the positions. We wanted to, but its not easy and it doesn't depend on you. You have to find the right player. The player you want has to be available and he has to choose you.feedback

Apr 09 2017

Still, we can finish in the top half. Watford are in 10th position and are one point ahead of us. But let's get the job done very soon - 40 points (West Ham are currently on 36). We haven't done the job, we are nowhere near doing the job.feedback

Apr 09 2017

This season could be one of the most valuable seasons for growing the club. First of all, because this experience makes you motivated not to be in this situation again. And it makes you stronger.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - Champions League

It was worse as we were in trouble with two games to go. Against Newcastle, we drew 0-0, a midweek game, I think. Our last game was against United away, where we did not want to go and need anything [West Ham lost 2-0]. Newcastle were better, of course, as they qualified for the Champions League that season under Kenny Dalglish. I remember that game. It was the spirit and everything.feedback

Apr 07 2017

Our team was also ups and downs all the time. Even in the same game, starting well and the second half bad or the other way around. It was the case then also. I spoke to Dicks in the dressing room just now about that. But, when we needed them, we had those kinds of characters. Dicks, Bishop, Moncur, Potts, Ludo Mikloško. We had them. A good team.feedback

Apr 07 2017

We are conceding way too many goals, not just in the last five games. We either get a clean sheet or we concede more than two goals or even three goals. I said it a few times to the players. We can talk about individual mistakes, but if you have to score more than three goals to get something then you can't expect to.feedback

Apr 07 2017

We've changed the system a lot of times this season, three or four at the back, and we are thinking about that. But there is not a lot of time to try things, so it won't be anything new.feedback

Apr 07 2017

If you are asking me if they care, of course they care. This is not a question of qualifying for Europe or not qualifying for Europe, or whether or not we finish in the top 10. We care about those things, but this is far more serious. It's a very serious situation. It's not do or die, but it's a serious situation. Do my players care as much as me? I think they do.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Champions League

I didn't like talking pre-season about the Champions League. It's the Premier League, we are West Ham, we want to go there but first we have to put solid cornerstones and build on it.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - London

Short-term, you might struggle. First you have to dip a little bit, to go down like Southampton did at their new stadium. Like Arsenal struggled in the first year. But the London Stadium for West Ham is unbelievable. It's great. But what's the point of talking about that? Now we have a situation where we need points to secure our status as soon as possible. Whether it is going to be written in the history books as a great season, it ain't.feedback

Apr 06 2017

We have to put everything we have on the line. We have to forget about egos, about who is taking corners, forget about who is going to start the game, forget about who is going to score the goals. We have to leave our egos in our beds and be as one. I am not saying we weren't before – but now more than ever. In the long term it is the best thing that the club has ever done. Make no mistake about it. Like the Emirates is for Arsenal. Like Southampton's new stadium, like Bayern's new stadium, like Schalke's new stadium, like Juventus's new stadium.feedback

Apr 06 2017

The new stadium changed the criteria and I spoke about that as a good thing, as a motivation of course, to look forward. Also it is a burden if it's not going good, if the expectations are suddenly big time.feedback

Apr 05 2017

Arsenal have their problems, but they are still a team with a lot of pace, a team you can't afford to lose the ball against in your own half because the transition and pace they have up front is unbelievable. They attack with numbers which makes them more likely to create something, but when they lose the ball they are very vulnerable because they leave a big space behind which you can use.feedback

Apr 01 2017

I'm doing my job, I'm motivated. But if we are making so many mistakes then you will pay the price.feedback

Mar 30 2017

Even in that good period, when reporters were talking about a new contract, I said we were not finished and there were a lot of games to play. I am not bothered [about the speculation] to be fair. I was telling you the same last season and earlier this season when you were talking about a new contract.feedback

Mar 30 2017

My head is clear and I am totally motivated and focused. I've been here long enough to know what to do - over a year and a half - with an objective here.feedback

Mar 30 2017

Personally, my head is clear and I still have a job to do here. I am still very motivated.feedback

Mar 19 2017

You can call it poor finishing but we have to give huge credit to Kasper Schmeichel. Especially for the save to the last chance from Andy Carroll. We deserved something from the game. We created lots of chances. In this league you can't afford to be 3-1 down and try to turn the game around. Last 20 minutes the ball just didn't want to go in.feedback

Mar 13 2017

He has got the legs, the determination, he has got the timing, he has got physical strength. He has got the ability. He is doing that week in, week out. He is a player that is very important for us but I don't know about the England squad – you will have to ask Gareth.feedback

Mar 07 2017

There is still a long way to go. They look serious, for me they are not going to lose that. I can't see them being casual. If it's the other way around and you make mistakes, they use them straight away and it's very hard. I'm disappointed. We were on top. We started well and created problems down the left but didn't have enough bodies in the box. Then we made a cheap mistake in a position where you can't lose the ball. Second half again, a cheap goal. To be fair, all of their counter attacks looked dangerous.feedback

Mar 07 2017

They deserved to beat us. It's very simple. If you want to beat Chelsea then you have to hope for their mistakes and use them.feedback

Mar 06 2017

Sometimes you have to push him to do it day-in, day-out and now he is doing it, and all credit to him because he has kept his place in a very good side.feedback

Mar 06 2017

Of course we welcome Victor Moses back to the club tonight. Vic has had a fantastic season and I am pleased for him. His characteristics were always amazing - his strength, his pace, his quality on the ball and his stamina are basically top, top-class.feedback

Mar 06 2017

We have been linked with many players in the last three transfer windows, including Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic. In those three windows, though, I have said a few times that the only position in the team I have absolutely no interest in discussing is the goalkeeping spot. If you ask me whether they will both still be here next season, I would say yes. You can never be 100 per cent certain in football, of course, and maybe one of them will knock on the door and say he is unhappy but even if that happens, I will try to persuade them to stay at the club.feedback

Mar 04 2017

He is playing in a position that is not basically his ideal position – or wasn't his ideal position. It makes his achievement even greater.feedback

Mar 03 2017

When you go home a part of you is affected by what happened during the day, with your bosses or colleagues or some fans who said something on social media. In football it is not only the players or the manager who are getting the criticism, now the media gets it as well. Every one of you is very reachable from every fan around the world. I'm sure that you can say 'I am not bothered' but it affects your mood, your private mood.feedback

Mar 03 2017

On a bigger scale of course it affects ours. And that is a good thing because if it was not affecting me or other managers then we would lose our determination and spirit for our job.feedback

Mar 03 2017

You pretend at home that you are OK because you don't want it to affect your family. But inside of course you are hurting. This is not the kind of job that you can leave in your office and go home. Of course I wasn't enjoying the defeats but sometimes you have to sacrifice something to get something. The experience is priceless. They say that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. It's great because now I can see it as a great experience. For me personally, for the players, and for the club.feedback

Mar 03 2017

Just Michail who is suspended who is out [for Chelsea], along with Sakho and Ogbonna. Sakho will see a specialist in France to see if he can push on with his training. He could be available in 3-4 weeks.feedback

Mar 02 2017

No way, no way, you know how much I rate him. He is one of our best players and we want to keep him. Chinese clubs send their representatives over to investigate. They were watching other players but they fell in love with Andy. The club didn't try to sell him. Andy heard the speculation. Suppose he was flattered by it but we didn't talk about it at all.feedback

Mar 02 2017

I'm surprised how good they have been. I was expecting him to have a strong impact because he had it at Juventus. I watched Juve quite a lot and I was studying his game. I didn't know because no-one knows. I expected him to do great long term and it is a surprise they are 10 points clear. Conte is a great manager, he done it at Juve, he done it with Italy. A brilliant manager, of course. It [the title race] is still very open. Many, many points. If they slip up, which you can in every game, other teams need to be ready.feedback

Dec 12 2016 - Turkey

It is tearing me apart. Big condolences to the families of the victims.feedback
