Sam Allardyce will not be sacked should West Ham be beaten by Cardiff City this afternoon.

With growing unrest on the Upton Park terraces, the owners fully intend to stick by their public vote of confidence in the boss.

A highly placed source made it crystal clear to Claretandhugh ahead of today’s game that there’s no chance of Allardyce being given his P45.

He said: “Not a chance, he’s in the process of getting players back and he has to be given the chance to work with them.

“Andy Carroll is one of them – on the bench today – and all the others are close.

“He still has the confidence of the co owners and board although we are aware of the feeling towards him among the fans.”
