allardyce smilesSam Allardyce will not be sacked!

Despite a dreadful run of results and failing to beat Sunderland at the weekend, the club intend to stick with their manager.

Although co-owner David Sullivan has made it clear that Allardyce’s position will not be reviewed until the end of the season, many have believed that to be an empty  ‘vote of confidence’.

With Crystal Palace, Sunderland and Fulham – the three clubs beneath the east London club – all having replaced their bosses, Allardyce is seen very much as the next in line.

Now Allardyce takes his team to White Hart Lane on Wednesday evening and we can conform that Allardyce is now as safe as houses at Upton Park. .

A source told claretandhugh exclusively: “The owners won’t be sacking him – it won’t happen.

“So much has happened that’s outside anyone’s control this season it would be a bad decision.

“They are in no mood to entertain a debate about the summer signing policy – they will kick on with the players and manager they have

” Sacking Sam is not an option.  They see nobody on the market who would do a better job than him”
