Allardyce: “The winning goal was offside”

West-Ham-v-Hull-Sam-Allardyce-bubbles_2756968Sam Allardyce claimed Eden Hazard’s goal clincher was offside but insisted the Hammers performance was “magnificent.”

He said: “I believe the performance was magnificent. Their goalkeeper’s performance made some fantastic saves. I think the goal is offside by a hair’s breadth.

“These decisions need to go for you not against you. In saying all that we shouldn’t have lost it in the chances we missed.

“We started the second half brilliantly, the keeper made some great saves, and it is a shame these are happening on a regular occurrence with no wins. We can only hope it turns in our favour quickly.

“The LMA is a fantastic professional body, with people who don’t get listened to. We have fantastic ideas on how to improve the game but it is not going to happen.

Mourinho“The authorities won’t take us under their wing to help them change the game. We can keep pressing for more of an influence and can’t give up.”

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho said: “I told the referee is it very difficult to be a ref here, because of the style of their game. Lots of long balls. West Ham had lots of balls in the box, very difficult, very intense and really difficult for the referee.

“They complain for everything, the crowd is behind them and it is really, really difficult.

  1. Mourinho’s comments “they complain for everything” – what’s that about a pot and a kettle? Difference is Jose, you complain and you get – we complain and we don’t.

  2. I take it Jose told Marriner this on the coach to the ground. The ref was shocking tonight he’s been kicked out of the league before for making bad decisions for Chelski and I see nothing has changed.
    On the plus side I thought the boys were fantastic tonight and I’d have to say Kevin Nolan in particular and before anyone jumps down my throat I’m one of his harshest critics,I believe his time is nearly up with us but credit where credit is due.

  3. Looks like Jose likes to complain too Hope we played 21st century football for him this time.

  4. When we play thie well including Nolan it’s hard not to be happy but we 10th one game before I thought we would reach that target,
    If it was offside that’s how the cookie crumbles but don’t worry BFS now you are in a lovely hotel in the sun,and one position away from breaking your targets although does being 10th count as being in the top 10,
    We still need a win to be safe and games keep drifting away.
    Reid in the bag now Jenkinson,and a new manager and the future will be looking better.
