New allardyceRogue stories that Sam Allardyce has been sacked as West Ham United boss are “100 per cent untrue.”

The story appeared on websites this afternoon and was taken down almost as quickly when the record was put straight,

ClaretandHugh received telephone calls claiming the manager had parted company with the club but withย with co-chairman David Sullivan at his 97 year old mother’s hospital bedside it seemed seriously unlikely.

And a few moments ago a high level source told us: “That is 100 per cent untrue. Sam is still in his job.”

However, as this site reported earlier today the 60 year old boss now looks to be in his last few weeks as the Irons chief with the hunt for a replacement underway.

  1. I’m already doing the countdown…

  2. Damn,the first two words on this headline got me excited,then i saw the ‘denied’ bit.It is only a matter of time though.Strange how we guys who wanted Allardyce out were apparently just moaning with no justification for it.That people were telling us we were having a fantasic season.We were castigated for not wanting the best for West Ham,but now even the board are probably of the same opinion about BFS(sorry flowerpot) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. mattefum dont have a heart attack ffs don’t worry he will be gone in the summer I am sure about that has any one got more info about this nene fellow kumb got pic of him having trained with the first team this morning if we sign him should be ready to play some part against the tots at least we will have someone that can take a free kick from outside the box should we get one

  4. I just saw on kumb in the sacking article that bfs is angry about the Nene signing,so i guess he will just sit on the bench for the next 13 matches if he is indeed joining us.

  5. the ONLY reason I see for us to be sacking BFS is if we have a Simeone or better lined up to take over right now.
    we don’t, lets face it.

    therefore, suffer we must through a few more games. I hope BFS suddenly becomes a new man and takes us to the last Europe spot… more than almost anything. BUT… he wont. We all know what we will be getting- more Nolan.

    In the meantime, hope for health, a Winston Reid epiphany that he is not going to a top 4 club, and some more points.


    • Jimmy the goose could do a better job than BFS.I am sure we would get more points with Sheringham in charge for the rest of this season.I am positive Allardyce would have been sent packing long ago but for the compensation BFS would look for if that happened.Like Reid the owners are running the contract down now we are almost safe.

  6. I’m reading that the availability of David Moyes and Slaven Bilic is being checked out – this is on the Telegraph site by Matt Law – I’d like to see the back of BFS but neither of these two attracts me – in fact I haven’t got a clue!

  7. damn!!!!!!!!!!! how dare u get my hopes up hugh ๐Ÿ˜›
