Brady hints at Sam’s Survival

BradyWest Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has suggested in her Sun football diary that she does not want Sam Allardyce to leave West Ham in the summer. Sam’s current contract with the Hammers runs out at the end of the season and the board say they will not make a decision until the end of the season.

Last month, media reports suggested Sam Allardyce could succeed Gus Poyet at Sunderland.

Brady has now strongly hinted that Allardyce will remain as the West Ham boss beyond the summer.

Brady said in her column on Saturday “Dinner with a bookmaker, he would hate that term, probably prefer statistic entrepreneur!Anyway, he tells me he is currently working out odds on the end-of-season managerial roundabout. His lowest odds are Steve Bruce moving to Fulham (or sightly longer to Wigan), Steve McClaren to Newcastle and another high-profile manager to Sunderland.I have no idea at all about all this. Except I suspect the boss moving to Sunderland won’t happen, especially if I have something to do with it!”

  1. I prefer not to comment her words, I could be banned…

  2. Thank god she is only one voice in three, will be outvoted I suspect 2 to 1 and Sam will be off to Sunderland, no smoke without fire.


  3. Brady is a fantastic business person but not a football person, not even sure she likes football despite marrying a footballer 😉 her reason for keeping Sam will be purely business driven. That he will almost guarantee £60m of revenue from staying in the premier league

    • With due respect it’s not Allardyce that will guarantee survival in the Premier League.It is the owners vision to improve our player stocks that have kept us up.Sorry if this line is boring but it’s the truth in my opinion.

  4. Matte that picture above is going to throw a new angle to your film now we have a love triangle Allardyce as Mellors Brady lady of the Manor And Nolan as Lord of manor in wheelchair with shell shock as he goes whole season with only one goal ?

  5. Ahahah… Yes bubs, I know Nolan is jealous… Now I have to rewrite my script… This love story is becoming a soap opera…

  6. I’ve always thought her Diary in the Sun was an embarrassment to the Club and to herself, why she continues to make a fool of herself I have no idea – she does like the limelight and is of the School of any publicity is good publicity!

  7. She should stick to beimg Alan Sugars bit on the side & leave football decisions to people who know what their talking about.

  8. Mattee can I have a part as local football pundit I could play it like Savage you know the village idiot or have you got Conker earmarked got that part,
    Sean I agree but we aren’t worried about the money and that is safe money how much is playing in Europe worth or winning something let alone filling the new ground by playing entertaing football ( a lot more than 60 mil ) plus binging a whole new fan base of young supporters.

    • Understandable first priority is staying in the Premier league and considering home attendance is 96% take up rate despite style of football why would owners be looking for change.Aside from the Champions league there is little money to be made elsewhere particularly the Europa League ,the future support growth will only be by continued success that only has been achieved by billionaire transformations of Chelsea & Man.City in recent times kids go for winners .If its my money am I sacking a manager that returns 60million per season not sure I would.

  9. Bubs don’t worry, you’ll have the part you prefer; In the film my boss Conker decided to be the Reverend who celebrates the wedding between Sam and Kevin. You know, he particularly wanted that role.

  10. What is going on – if our owners reappoint this clown we call our manager then there will be an outcry….

  11. Brady needs Allardyce to safeguard her own position its as simple as that.She owns no part of WHU and is just part-time gold digging.She should go with him in May.

  12. Looking again that picture paints a few obvious words.

    • WHU are lucky to be back in the Premier League as it is.I assume the picture of the two WHU liabilities was taken after the playoff for promotion?Firstly we should not have been in the position we were in, having to play off for Premier League promotion.Secondly it was a fortunate strike from Vaz Te that got us promoted.Then we were only treading water in the Premier League until the owners came to the rescue with funds for quality players.Not Allardyce and not Brady are responsible for the turn in fortunes.Yes I am boring but that’s my honest opinion.
