Allardyce still secure


Creepy AllardyceSam Allardyce remains safe as West Ham United manager.

Despite a near non-stop assault on the manager from Twitter, and boos ringing around the Boleyn at the end of Saturday’s match, there are no immediate plans to replace the 59 year old.

Allardyce – having described the performance against Southampton as “indefensible” – will get more time to turn things around.

And the club will be pinning much on the arrival of Alex Song who the manager clearly sees as a big player in reviving the teams’ performances.

A source told ClaretandHugh exclusively: “We have heard reports that the board is considering the manager’s position but there is no truth in that.”

O Since the end of last February Allardyce has presided over 14 League games, losing 10 and winning four.

And of course the Irons were kicked out of the Capital One Cup in the second round by League One Sheffield United on penalties.

    OMG. This cannot be. A Southampton fan phoned me after Saturday’s game to point out that the last time his team won at Upton Park, Glenn Roeder got the sack!! 3 home games this season, all lost, and only 2 goals scored. The Board are beginning to get under my skin!

    The board are as much cowards as Sam is a perpetual loser.they are as bad as each other.

  • Michael Miller says:

    If they get beat away at Hull on the 15th and then get badly turned over by Liverpool, as you would expect, things may well come to a head.

    If West Ham go a couple down early on it could turn very ugly for BFS – can’t wait!
