Allardyce to get tough in contract talks

Sam-Allardyce-edited1_2519771Sam Allardyce is reported as being ready to lay down the law to West Ham’s owners when contract talks are on the agenda at the end of the season.

According to the Sunday Mirror, the 60 year old Upton Park boss is ready to tell the Davids he will only do the job on his terms.

It seems a hardball game of “my way or the highway” is set to get underway although the club now looks set to make a change anyway!

ClaretandHugh has been regularly told over the last week that candidates for his job are now being listed with Slaven Bilic seemingly the No 1 contender followed by such as David Moyes.

And we have also learned that former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri – now with Greece – may be a possible contender although the Hammers are looking to youth as their starting point

Allardyce was targeted ┬áby furious fans after the 4-0 FA Cup fifth round defeat at West Brom last weekend and co chairman David Gold has declared since on this site “a response is required at Whute Hart Lane today. ”

He is keen to continue at the club despite a stormy relationship with the fans – but apparently he will only do so on his terms.

He will want plenty of funds and will maker it clear he needs to manage free of the restrictions which were placed on him last season with demands for attacking football and the like from the board.

  1. Hopefully it will be the highway for Allardyce.The nerve of the man to tell the owners he wants it all on his terms.Time to go Sam.

    4 we win the 2 Daves call him oh tell him what a good result thank you shake hands and say good bye.

  3. Seriously asking us to believe the gospel according to the Mirror really!

    • I know,its scandalous that Hugh should post this on the site.We all know The Sun is the only paper you can believe.Calm down ffs,its only an article saying what The Mirror have written.No one says its compulsory for us all to believe it!

  4. Sam looks so exhaustred in this pic.Must be fatigue from the three games in a week!

  5. TysonM that’s not fatigue you just have to guess where Nolan is in the bigger picture.

  6. Haha,yeah i think Nolan is out of sight with his tongue somewhere as well,lol

  7. If you look carefully nolan is behind him…

  8. If Nolan starts today i will cry,With all the midfield fit there is no justification in him playing.But BFS will probably play five in midfield & one striker just to fit him in.

  9. That’ll be the Highway then – not a day too soon!

  10. Very vey rarely im glad im not going to the game but after last saturday i am pleased to not be going.I think it could get messy & i cant handle a load of gloating Spuds singing all their ‘Hes one of our own’ crap about The Gooner Harry Kane.

  11. Im in shock,Nolan is on the bench.I must be dreaming or halucinating!
