Outside of Ancelotti and Benitez, all the names mentioned ar a risk. It is very unlikely we get Klopp, Ancelotti or Benitez. De Boer and Emery, possible but still unlikely I can not begin to understand why anyone would possibly pick McLaren or Rodgers over Bilic. Bilic outwitted Rodgers this year, and twice embarrassed McLaren. He did a great job with Croatia, and a good job with Besiktas. I think we are very likely to stay up if he is the next manager, and I think we can progress if he is given time and money. I think most fans will welcome him, and regardless of his defection to Everton, he has always spoken with great regard for West Ham. I honestly believe he respects the ethos, culture and history of the club. He is part maverick, part romantic, and a shrewd tactician. His teams show enough pragmatism to get enough results, but enough flamboyance to entertain. He is one of the most intelligent men in football, and has been praised by other respected managers including Mourinho. I think we would all love for De Boer to come here and have us playing total football, or Bielsa to convert us to the claret and blue Argentina or for Emery to take us to back to back Eufa Cups, but we don't have the players, the academy or the money for that yet. I would be very happy with a European campaign where we give a good account of ourselves, to leapfrog the likes of Everton, Swansea, Palace and Stoke. To finish in 8th and to have a couple of good cup runs playing better football than the last 5 months, and to develop a more professional culture. I believe Bilic has at least as good, if not better chance than the other realistic candidates.
