Bookies have Allardyce in wings

Creepy AllardyceWest Ham’s comeback at Sunderland appears to have crashed the final nail into Dick Advocaat’s City of Light coffin and that could see former Upton Park boss Sam Allardyce march into the club.

Allardyce is the bookies favourite to take over at the club with his odds tumbling from 2/1 last week to 4/5 on many lists this morning.

The Hammers clawed back from 2-0 down and could easily have won as they dominated the second half  but couldn’t put the finishing touch to their recovery.

Advocaat flew home to Holland last night on a private jet and an announcement from the club is anticipated in the next 24 hours.

Having been denied a winning farewell, he now looks likely to become the sixth manager to leave Sunderland in seven years.

Asked about his future, Advocaat said: ‘I don’t want to discuss my own future, you will hear one way or the other. Let’s wait and see. “It has nothing to do with this game. Yes. I have made a decision on my future.

“I am still manager today and tomorrow.”
