Allardyce: ” We all understand the situation”

sad samSam Allardyce remains unconcerned seemingly about his position at the club .

However, it is not without significance that he has taken to Sky Sports News to discuss the speculation swirling around him.

He said:”The way the owners go about their business has not changed. They made it clear and plain when we started negotiating.

“While it continues to build up speculation behind the scenes, I have always known that’s the way forward.

“I have never pushed to get them to say what’s going on in the contract situation because they made that perfectly clear since day one, when I joined the football club.

He added: “It was the same when my contract ran out last time, I waited until the end of the season.

“We’ve stayed in the Premier League and it’ll be the same this time. We all understand the situation internally, which is the most important thing.”

  1. Understand! His version of understanding is unique to everyone but mainly himself.

    • It is as always Allardyce trying to put his spin on the situation particularly now with all the speculation about his demise.He is hoping to play down the rumour mill and in his defence you could not blame him.Having said that the way he has behaved this campaign is indefensible.

  2. Yes, he’s playing the fireman, but the blaze is burning down the forest and not the the usual single tree… so I think this time it’s too late to extinguish the fire.

  3. he is right in what he says. G&S have said exactly what they said last time before he had his contract renewed. My thoughts are that they will not renew this time and Bilic will be the man they are after. Importantly, Bilic has said in the past he would love the job but wanted to finish his contract with the Croatian National side at the time. My guess is Sam will finish his job at UP with all the boxes ticked regarding promotion and stability and Bilic will be our new boss come next season. Any takers on Nolan still getting a run?

    • I hope Carroll goes with Nolan.I’m not being uncharitable to Carroll but with him being unsound physically he is an impact player at best.He is not worth the big money and in hindsight Brendan Rogers was right to let him go.I’m sure after Allardyce clears his desk no one will be able to catch him in his car including his pet Nolan.To me it’s obvious that the owners don’t want to give Allardyce any opportunity to sue for compensation.

  4. He will be running,behind Sams car to Allardyces new club.

  5. I’m going to wait and see what happens if we win on Sunday. Would be ironic if the injury to Carroll, which has forced Sam to give up on his plan to make Carroll and Nolan, to a lesser extent, the core of his front end, and give a real run to the two players who can prove him wrong, actually do just that. Will Sam then become the hero again, even though he will have been forced into changing his strike force set up
