AC: “Sam can out-tactic Mourino”

SAllardyceAndy Carroll reckons  Sam Allardyce is all set to tactically outclass  Jose Mourinho on Boxing Day.

The big man is ultra confident over the trip to Stamford Bridge declaring: “We can do anything. He (Allardyce) ” knows just as much as us how to beat managers, their tactics.

“He knows what they are going to do against us. It’s just a game of chess, really, looking a move ahead.

“He’s not the same every week. He wants a win, but you’ve got to watch the teams, how they’re playing, how we’re going to break them down and win the game.

“He’s got loads of different ways of attacking, we’ve got loads of dimensions to go forward. That’s what our qualities are at the minute.”

Mourinho The Hammers have one defeat in 11 games and Carroll attributes the transformation to Allardyce and changes in personnel.

“He’s brought in some great players,” added Carroll, who has scored three times on his return from injury.

“He’s changed the team around a lot and the players he’s brought in have settled in nicely.

“All the lads are buzzing about at the minute, and it comes from that really: the manager’s choice of players and how he wants to play now.

“We’re playing great football, and I think any team that we play against is going to be worried about us.

“We’ve got more than one attacking option: play it on the floor, play it in the air, down the sides.

“There’s a belief. Everyone’s flying at the minute. Everyone’s looking forward to every game.

“Every week we’re thinking, oh there’s another three points, potentially.”

  1. If anyone doubted that heading a football can damage the brain then this is surely proof positive. AC may be good in the box but he is obviously not the sharpest knife in it!

  2. What a load of crock.If Allardyce was half the manager he thinks he is he might have won something in 25 years .He got a draw at Chelsea in a shocker of a game and thinks that makes him great. Someone needs to stop all this gratuitous brown nosing.

  3. If Allardyce had half the talent and wealth at his disposal maybe he would have won something in 25 years. I often wonder how the managers of the big 4/5/6 would perform with limited budget and resources. Rugbyirons maybe a little check yourself before you wreck yourself is required here. Let’s get behind the team and manager! COYI
