Big Sam in hot water over West Ham comparsion

Sam Allardyce has denied he was smirking at Everton fans after his team’s latest defeat last weekend claiming he can’t control his facial expressions. It comes days after he compared expectations of Everton fans against West Ham fans which landed him in hot water.

He was criticised for appearing to compare Everton to Newcastle and West Ham in terms of size and history, and then provoked outrage in some quarters when asked about the response of fans, in his post-match TV interview at Burnley.

“Everton is far greater than Newcastle and West Ham, but every fan has great demands and when there are big crowds the demand is bigger. That’s what it’s all about,” said Allardyce.

For me Everton is completely different to Newcastle or West Ham but it was just a comparison. It wasn’t anything other than that. The ambition at Everton is different to Newcastle and different to West Ham, but if you don’t play as well as they expect you to play and don’t entertain they show their disapproval and that’s what you have to deal with as a manager.”

  1. What a tool of a man he really is, showing he has no respect to the Everton fans after he smirked at losing another game. He has been made very rich with the help of Newcastle & ourselves over the years only to then have a dig at us at every possible opportunity.
    Everton fans are now understanding why so many fans of clubs where he has managed can’t wait to see the back of him.

  2. Quite amazing he should compare Everton to us or Newcastle, considering the number of times they have won the league and other trophies. They are also the second longest surviving team in the English top division.

  3. He has no humility and no respect for the fans that pay his wages. For me, the relationship with The Irons finsihed when he cupped his ear to the crowd during the Hull game. ‘I’ve never been at a club where you win and get booed off’ was his pathetic explanation. Welcome to West Ham was my response. Unfortunately for Everton’s fans they are discovering that he has teh same contempt for them. It just goes to show the pundits & Press don’t necessarily know everything. The bloke even managed to mess up the golden oportunity for some bizarre reason, he was given at Engalnd. Why? what has he actually ever done? Managed on a shoe string… though his coffers were always well stocked… and not got clubs relegated? More myth than man. Surely this particular king has now been revelaled to have had no clothes all along and that will be the last of the Big Sam ‘Carefull what you wish for, you ungrateful football fans, you’ Bandwagon.

  4. They apparently call him lardiola!!

  5. This guy took away my passion for football, after a lifetime of following my beloved Hammers. I now watch Rugby and The Hammers but no other soccer. He’s a complete loser in my opinion 😡
