Bilic expecting West Ham chairmen to be 'generous'

Essex-based Ocean will be the Premier League club's official travel partner for the next three years, gaining TV-visible advertising space on the giant digital screens at West Ham's new London Stadium, formerly the Olympic Stadium.
The Turkish global winger made more key passes than any other player over the 90 minutes (4), made three successful dribbles and pulled off seven crosses including the one that resulted in the goal.
Having scored in his first match for the club - a friendly victory over Karlsruher - Feghouli was influential in West Ham's passage to the Europa League play-off round, scoring in a 3-0 second leg win over NK Domzale.
The Hammers were not helped by the unavailability of a number of first-team players, including striker Andy Carroll, who is facing a few weeks out with a knee injury.
Michail Antonio was relieved to go from fall guy to history maker and get West Ham's season up and running.
Turkish warplanes, artillery hit targets in Syria
Any action against Kurdish forces in Syria puts Turkey at odds with its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally the United States. A Reuters witness in Karkamis, a town on the Turkish side of the border, heard jets and artillery bomb Syrian targets.
For most of the afternoon, it looked as though the Hammers were set to be frustrated on their league debut at their new home, with clear chances scarce at either end.
"It was a nice bit of play, the ball held up nicely for Gokhan and it was one of those that I'm always going to be there [at the far post]".
"The worst situation is when you have a player and say he is the one to build around and then you can't count on him". We know the rules, we are well drilled. They want to get better this season, a big ask after the last campaign, and anything short of a win here would have been discouraging.
There were six minutes left when Antonio punctured the tension at the London Stadium by settling a dreary contest with Eddie Howe's disappointing Bournemouth, who collapsed after losing Harry Arter to a late red card. "We have a good team and we're expecting to play a good game".
West Ham was handed a lifeline with just under 15 minutes remaining as Arter, who earlier fell foul of new directives to enforce bookings for dissent, received his marching orders after he pulled back Cheikhou Kouyate. We are well aware that dissent or a negative reaction will be a yellow card.
