Diarra puts boot into Allardyce

DiarraAlou Diarra – having been at Charlton on a loan spell until the end of the season – has put the boot into Sam Allardyce.

He remains unhappy at his treatment under the 60 year old at Upton Park and has given way to his Boleyn frustrations.

Speaking to South London Today he said: “I wasn’t first choice. I gave everything in training but it wasn’t enough for the manager.

“It was unfair because before I came to West Ham I was in the France squad for the European Championships in 2012 and playing in the Champions League.

‘My past was good. I played a lot of good games before I signed. But I wasn’t first choice at West Ham – I don’t know if it would’ve been different with a different manager.

“I have a new chance to play now. West Ham was not my fault – I gave everything.’

  1. You are unlucky: if your name was Alou Nolan, you would be vice-captain…

  2. To be fair he was pretty pants.He didnt deserve his place in the side in my opinion.I dont know whether he can blame Allardyce for not playing him,he was poor,or Allardyce for signing him in the first place.Either way he was better off gone & put down to a bad move in the transfer market.The fact he is now playing for Charlton says it all 😉

    • Yes Rads I agree… That was a joke I just told to make a point… If your name is Nolan, everything is easier 😉

  3. I know Matte 😉 I wasnt disagreeing with you,just commenting on the actual article,that Diarra was actually pretty poor & didnt deserve to be in the team in my opinion of course.Which counts for little because i want Sam out & it makes me lack common sense or intelligence apparently,lol 😀

  4. Well given he made his debut as a sub, played 3 games, got a thingh had a ruck with Allardyce, had three more games and got bombed out is neither here nor there of
    course. Sam thinks he’s rubbish – end of story

  5. If Sam thinks he’s rubbish, he is rubbish. Sam’s opinion is sacred. If Sam would say Messi is rubbish we have to believe him. Amen. 😉

  6. Its difficult for me to say but i think Allardyce was bang on the money with him.He was well past his best when he came to us.I think when he went out on loan to Rennes he struggled to get into their team as well & had a bust-up with their manager.But having said that we should never have taken him in the first place.It does however beg the question why did Sam sign someone he didnt rate after 6 matches.


  8. That’s what we have scouts for but with BFS he thinks it’s Bob a job week,
    And the only thing you get for a bob now adays is a NOLAN,
    This transfer was one of the reasons the 2 Daves took over the transfers this year,
    So why do you need a manager when a coach is good enough ?

  9. If your not good enough,get better, that’s that
