Advocaat for now – Allardyce later

allardyce-advocaat-mainSam Allardyce’s West Ham future – or lack of it – is now becoming an hours news bulletin rather than daily or weekly.

For despite Sunderland announcing that Dick Advocaat will take over until the end of the season it is believed that Allardyce is in the frame as the next permanent appointment at the Stadium of Light.

As we have reported at regular intervals over the last few days, Sam’s West Ham day will be done at the end of this campaign  with David Moyes still remaining the favourite to take over.

And it has emerged this morning that the Real Sociedad boss – who is only on an 18 month deal at the Spanish club – has a clause in his contract  that he can leave if an offer comes from an English club.

Interestingly, however, the Hammers board will be keeping a close eye on Everton’s form until the end of the season where the owners have always been keen admirers of Robeto Martinez’s managerial approach.

A win over Newcastle lifted the Toffees away from the relegation fight but should the club find itself in trouble at the end of the season, a move would be on were the Spaniard to be sacked.

  1. I express my heartfelt condolences to Sunderland fans 🙂

  2. Roberto Martinez: the most over-rated manager in English football. Does this mean that if Everton are relegated ( 2 years after Wigan ), we will pounce to capture Martinez for our new manager? Surely the 2 davids are not drunk.

  3. Would this be the same Roberto Martinez that took Wigan to a lower position every year he was there, and has subsequently taken Everton from a European place to relegation contenders?

    • yep same one, but luckily he won’t get nearer to the job than Moyes. It will be Moyes if Sam goes, if only for his reputation as a very stable manager.

  4. Martinez this has to be a press windup or smokescreen for Moyes,not an admirer of either but Martinez NO. C.O.Y.I.
