Big Sam thanks West Ham fans

SamSam Allardyce has thanked West Ham fans who largely gave him a warm welcome at the Boleyn ground yesterday.

Both Slaven Bilic and David Sullivan called for a warm welcome and respect for the former  Hammers manager and the anticipated booing by the media did not materialise and the match continued without incident. Former Hammer Jermain Defoe got a more hostile reception than Big Sam.

Sam, speaking on his personal twitter account Sam posted his thanks on Sunday as he returned to Sunderland.

“Want to thank all the West Ham fans who gave me a good reception yesterday! Thoroughly enjoyed my time at the club & wish them all the best”

  1. Whatever the Sam debate, here’s something that unites us all: our sadness at the tragic passing away of our beloved hero Bobby Moore 23 years ago. And here’s the tribute guaranteed to raise a smile, East End style, of our beloved hero: Sing along everyone! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XAOt9EoAug

  2. No way did BFS write that, most likely agent or PR person. And that’s like many players on Twitter, written for them not by them!

  3. Means nothing to most I think ! Jabba insulted the club , he’s still a c##t with no class !
    End of .

  4. That should be the end of it ,he can write a column for Wetpants when he retires,that should get them dribbling,
    The DIffrence with them is Defoe left for money Hippo took ours for nothing ,

  5. Surely it’s time to let this go, or are we a bunch of sulking teenagers?! Jeez…

  6. Some have more pride than others, some bury their head in the sand , jellyfish really, but what we all must do is respect others point of view , personally I loathed this bloke from the day he started stealing our money ! Secondly I do not take kindley to anyone insulting the club in any way shape or form which is what jabba did! If some want to draw a line then fine , but don’t ask others to do the same , its become deeper than that .for me anyway.!! Its personal .

  7. No point John we won’t be playing them again for along time and if they come back under his leadership,
    Just hope he don’t get Lawersucks Job in a couple of years,
    We need to concentrate on the Spuds now,
    But I do understand your feelings and I would not tell anyone how they feel,
    Take your war to Wetpants they will never let it die and I am sure you can put up with the bullies

  8. Got no intentions of harping on about the fat turd bubs ,I will not forgive him or speak of him in a civil way , as for wet pants I’m afraid I will not go on there for love or money mate , I like it on here , its a better clientele !
