Big Sam may get Hammers SOS call

Sam AllardyceExclusive

West Ham may send a SOS call to Sam Allardyce as the club rushes to make arrangements to replace Slaven Bilic.

ClaretandHugh has discovered that alongside a plan to approach Guus Hiddink as a possible caretaker boss Allardyce too is in the frame for what would be a dramatic return to the club.

The Hammers have put out several calls to potential candidates but Hiddink and Allardyce are currently the most serious runners in the race to replace the Croatian.

The club fears that at 70 years of age Hiddink may not be interested in returning to the game after his last interim spell as Chelsea boss in 2016.

And we were told that although there were various balls in the air, Allardyce’s name was most definitely on one of them!

After his England departure and the ensuing spell at Palace Big Sam said he had no intention of seeking another job, in what was interpreted as a retirement announcement.

However in July he did a half u-turn saying he would be open to an international management position, but not another club job.

Whether he would be prepared to complete a full u turn remains to be seen as the Hammers make desperate moves to set their season on course.

  1. Oh do behave for gods sake

  2. As if the weekend couldn’t get any worse!!!

    I’d rather take Redknapp / Pardew or even Curbishley if we need an ex manager to caretake!

  3. How about Trevor Brooking?

  4. Behave. Westley all day long if this is our option.

    • I was thinking the same last night, at least the u23’s pass and move, they may not be that good defensively but we couldn’t be any worse than under Bilic and we might actually see the players try and play an expansive passing game.

  5. Now I find myself agreeing with Trump on one thing…… fake news stories.

    It has to be surely? Salt in the wounds if he did. It’s not hard. Westly all day long!

  6. To paraphrase SpongBob Square Pants boss, Eugene Krabbs ‘Maybe they will. And maybe scallops will fly out of me underpants’. Do behave! If Bilic is sacked, as he surely should be, it will be in no small part because of the turds he has dished up the fans, calling them football matches. Why would we replace an existing cretin with a previous ear-cupping, disrespectful, dishonest, defensively obsessed one when what we need is our souls uplifting with football. Stop it. Stop peddling this fantasy gossip.

  7. Fat sam….no no please no

  8. Go to the hospital immediately basil! It appears the moose has fallen on you’re nut again πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ ,
    One way of giving the S/T hopefuls a boost !!! πŸ˜‚

  9. I’d give up my season ticket. Was nearly at that point when he was manager before ! Nooooooooooo!

  10. I wouldn’t think for a moment that he would want to come back to a club who announced he was gone minutes after his final game. He would be laughing his nuts off ‘be careful what you wish for’ will be dragged out the cupboard & dusted off any day now.
    I can’t remember a time when everything from the top to the bottom has felt so down & flat around the club. I can’t see anything to look forward to atm with whu.

  11. Lateral thinking – how about fielding the Ladies’ team instead?

  12. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ A good joke always lift’s the gloom! COYI!

  13. Bwhahahahahah . . . . Bwahahahahahah . . .. stop it, stop it Bwahahahahahah
