BFS reveals thoughts on “do or die” West Ham clash


Leeds boss Sam Allardyce has told his Leeds United players to fight to the end in the “do or die” scrap at the London Stadium tomorrow (Sun).

Allardyce, halfway through his hoped for salvage mission at Elland Road has claimed the match is  was effectively a ‘cup final’.

The former England manager said: “That’s it. Do or die lads. Fight. Fight to the end.”

The Hammers are not mathematically safe but a point on Sunday would do the trick, and even if Leeds can travel back to Elland Road with a maximum, an Everton defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers seeing off Everton today will do the job.

Allardyce knows how hard the Leeds job is adding that no matter matter what happens on Saturday Leeds have to deliver a three-point scenario at West Ham to try and save their Premier League status and handling the pressure that comes with that is a big question of ‘can you?’”

Leeds sacked Gracia, who had only replaced Jesse Marsch in February, after a series of damaging, heavy defeats.

    It will be such a pleasure if we beat Leeds tomorrow and help relegate Big Fat Sam and Sonny boy Perkins.
