DG backs “Three Hammers Sam” for England

samgoldDavid Gold reckons Sam Allardyce will be sorely tempted to give Hammers Mark Noble, Andy Carroll and Aaron Cresswell their England chance when he takes over as England boss.

The co chairman believes the former Irons boss can defy his critics by producing an England team we can admire again.

Speaking exclsuively to ClaretandHugh DG said: “Now he has finally got the chance to work with the best players around you could see an entirely different approach.

“He has only ever managed struggling clubs – including ours at the time – but now we could see a very different man at work.”

And he added: “I can’t pick his squad for him but I think he will look hard at Andy because he brings something different to the table. In France all our forwards looked the same as each other and made as little impact as whoever they replaced.

“Sam had the club break our transfer record for him so that tells you where he is with AC. I would like to think that  both Mark and Aaron will get their chance if they keep up the standards of last season.

“I’m glad we are staying with an English manager and really do wish Sam every success on behalf of all of us at West Ham.”

  1. Two years down the line we will be in the same predicament.We will qualify in second or third gear then get to the finals & find out we have no fourth or fifth.Same sh#t,different day syndrome imho.

  2. I cannot believe BFS has been appointed – it is nearly as incredible as Brexit ! What a shocking decision by a hierarchy of English football – watch what he will do with the national team.

    • You mean create a structured team with actual tactics based around players that have put the work in and deserve to wear their nations shirt rather than ‘big’ names that have done bugger all and stroll into the team? Ok, i will watch. I look forward to it. I don’t get why so many people are in uproar, give him a friggin chance, our national football team has been appalling for years and made out like we’re challenging for the cup. Sam is exactly what we need to bring us to earth and play with the team he has, not the team we delude ourselves we have.

  3. hmmm… I still don’t know which of these styles of play Sam will use… the Brazilian style or tiki-taka… probably both… lol 😀

    • Have you joined Bellend & The Grey Cats party on Wetlands Matt?? Lol.Its being held up Fat Sams ass 🙂

  4. Where have you been in the last 5 years salesb ?
    Did you not watch him destroy our club and 100 years of great football tradition,
    Before that he put Newcastle back 20 years,
    Before that he had 1 lucky year at Bolton,
    Before that he had a poor football career as a player,
    Not a bad cv for a national manager,
    Plus he is so perfect as a role model to our country,
    Yep now I can see how he got the job he is a natural winner,
    No not that either,
    It’s coming home ,it’s coming home
    Mundane boring rubbish football
    Footballs coming home

    • Nah he didn’t destroy our club at all, he did what he needed to get us back up and make us a solid mid table team, he was never going to do better than that and i think we chose the right time to bring in Bilic to take us the next step, but thats what England needs, someone to take us from a mess of a team to an alright team that no matter how bad they play, gets results. I don’t see big Sam as a long term England manager but I think he’ll do enough so that the next manager has a decent team to take over and can look forward with to try and challenge the big teams.

      Obviously it’s all speculation at the moment as the national job is incredibly different to a domestic club job, but I think if any English manager is going to be able to make the most of the talent that we’ve got then it’s probably going to be him. Either way I don’t think we can make any judgements or comments until at least a year into his contract, whether it’s good news or bad. Managers get judged far too quickly in modern days

      • Sorry salesb your comments are way off target. bubs is 100% right he destroyed our tradition and divided the fan base. His long ball style especially when AC played completely goes against the ‘West Ham way’ styled and developed by Fenton, Greenwood & Lyall, real managers of quality and tactical now how. BFS knows only one way hump it up, hope to score first, then sit back in the dug out, chew gum and then encourage the team to defend for the rest of the 90 minutes. He will do exactly the same for England.

  5. I honestly think he will make us hard to beat because that is his speciality. But if it’s at he cost of playing boring football, then I would rather not see it.

  6. Well done Big man,sure your make a difference.West ham fans should remember, you bought the spine of our present team. Kouyate,Adrian,cresswell,Carroll to name but a few.You may not have been the man to take us forward,but sure your do a good turn for england.COYI

    • We don’t know that for sure, what we do know is the youth team suffered because he didn’t watch encourage or support their progress and we lost some good prospects like Moncur Potts and Lee sons of former players. He also bought Maiga And several last minute loaners who were so good I can’t remember their names.

  7. Who cares if England play “boring football”?

    Did anyone enjoy watching England play at the Euros? How about that attractive World Cup side in 2014?

    I could actually see Big Sam doing well. And it is about f’ing time Mark Noble was capped!
