But he added:”You’ve got to remember that we’re all in this together and that’s why we are where we are.
Speaking to www.whufc.com he said: “We’re trying to progress the football club, so I’m delivering what the owners want, and at the moment we’ve got what we want – not as much as we wanted, but we’ve got what we want… nearly. “
The hostility of fans over recent weeks is according to Allardyce “part of the job” adding: “Everybody keeps telling me about how we need to play and what performances we need to give, but in our last four games all of our performances have been very good.
“But without a result comes criticism, so the perception of how you play the game or how you should play the game comes down to only one thing, and that’s results, not what you’ve done for the 90 minutes.
“It’s about have you won at the end of it. We’ve lost all of our last four, but the performances have been as good as the opposition, and in lots of cases better
“It’s about have you won at the end of it. We’ve lost all of our last four, but the performances have been as good as the opposition, and in lots of cases better.
“I can’t remember us playing as well as we did against Liverpool this season, but we lost to two penalties and it’s a defeat, rather than getting something out of the game against one of the favourites to win the league.
“Against Arsenal the overall performance was there, then Crystal Palace and West Brom, everyone talks about possession and we out-possessed both Crystal Palace and West Brom, but because we haven’t won everyone perceives that they were poor performances.
“I know what is right, and I know it’s a results-driven business. We’re not getting results and without results you get criticised, and we all accept that.”
Only Marco Borriello is unavailable for the clash against Spurs and the manager said: ““If we are to beat Tottenham it’s no good to continue to play well if we carry on making basic errors.
“It would be absolutely fantastic to beat them at home, having beaten them in the Capital One Cup and in the league.”
