After a couple of hours of confusion following today’s season’s review meeting it has emerged that the under pressure Hammers boss will face another board meeting after today’s confrontation to inform him of their decision.
It represents a long wait for the manager who at one stage today looked to have avoided the axe.
Unconfirmed reports emerged claiming he would not be sacked but the key word missing was “today.”
As revealed on ClaretandHugh, the club’s directors are undecided and are refusing to make a rapid decision.
And a source revealed to us: “We need a bit of time. There’s an awful lot to think about – Sam Allardyce’s position remains unchanged.
“There was a full and frank exchange of views and Sam Allardyce will be made aware of the board’s decision in 10 days time.”
It’s a cute move by the board who clearly want time to see the extent of any season ticket boycott by the club’s legions of disgruntled fans.
