Brady: no assurances for Sam


karren-brady_2597986b“Sam Allardyce is a good manager,” Hammers Vice Chairman Karren Brady told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on Talk Sport radio this morning.

“He will always have our respect and whatever happens with West Ham, his future is bright. He’s a good manager, but he has to make sure he’s happy at West Ham. We have to sit down and calculate what we do privately, and respectfully, with him. We have the same plan this year as we’ve had every other time his contract has run out. We’ll sit down at the end of the season, discuss the season that’s gone past and decide how to go forward. Everything comes into the decision, not least of all how fans are feeling. There have been times when the supporters have been on his back and he has found that time very difficult to deal with.”

    After the many polls last week and even with Cookie Monsters help the verdict was clear,
    No new contract and even if he manages to finish in the top 10 ( which I now doubt )
    He has broke all the other promise,s
    Mrs B is politically correct and her personal views of BFS mean nothing to us as we are only interested in football,

  • Quickdraw says:

    Hopefully she can take Sam to the House of Lords would suit him down to the ground sitting on a bench doing nothing,having no helpful input and caring not a jot for the people who matter. He’d have to be careful where he puts his chewing gum though it’s very hard to get out of ermine.

    Mrs Brady, I’m less diplomatic than you: I suggest you sit down and before BFS opens his mouth, shake his hand and tell him “Thanks a lot, that’s the door”. The whole thing takes a couple of minutes.


  • JMan43 says:

    I listened to that whole interview and I came away with the opinion that he would be staying if Karren got her way; though she is a lot more circumspect in public than either Davids are.

  • chickenrunner says:

    Interesting how often it is Brady comes out in support of Allardyce in comparision to either Davids,i dont seem to remember them bigging up Sam or his managerial abilities for quite a while.It always seems to be Brady who comes out with the Sam has done,is doing a fantastic job slant on things.

    out of Gold Sullivan & Brady who wears the trousers? if the club want to go forward then axethe dinosaur as there extinct. Dear Mrs Brady its the fans who make a football club without them no revenue no shirt sales no nothing think long & hard before you put the dinosaur before us & thanks for the sweetner of cheaper tkts at the OS but without us could end up with a white dinosaur

  • rugbyirons says:

    Brady backs him because they are as pointless as each other.Without Allardyce the owners might realise she is just as overrated and get shot of her too

  • Rads Can Take No More Samasaurus.com says:

    I hate it when she starts talking on pitch matters,being married to paul peschisolido hardly makes her an expert on these things.I would much prefer she just got on with her job & left the football playing issues to others.Btw im not being anti ladies in football,i just wonder what her actually knowledge of football is to any great degree.I just want to clarify this before i have a load of feminist lesbos backing at my door 😀
