Err Sam – the official “guessed” right

samallardyce-cropped_o5z7qav742vd1nm9ev6q0oyyrSam Allardyce has had a whinge at ‘the goal that never was’ from Enner Valencia during yesterday’s game at Villa Park.

With Villa leading, the Ecuadorian striker rose to head home which at – at first sight – appeared to be an okay goal.

However, replays clearly showed Enner to be offside by about a yard and the player greeted the decision from the referee’s assistant with a small smile.

The manager however, unsurprisingly, took a difference view and stormed afterwards: “The assistant was in no position to  give a decision – he guessed.

“He was four yards out of place and I find that difficult to take but beyond that our problem is we can’t score goals or finish chances.”

An odd response at best and just a small reminder – the referee’s assistant “guessed” right. Why you were apparently watching him rather than the build up to the ‘goal’ WE can only GUESS at!

  1. Why does everybody have it in for him? Poor Sam… he is just an unlucky man and a misunderstood Genius. He’s too advanced for the people, his sophisticated football is a futuristic dream, he’s a visionary…


  2. This last four months this idiot really has just highlighted what a limited,excuse making,mediocre manager he is.Thanks Sam for helping everyone to understand what a complete & utter waste of time you are!

  3. Why is NCS even talking to the press Miliband resigned,Clegg resigned,Farage resigned
    Because they led there teams to defeat
    That’s a clue what real leaders do,
    NCS resign be a man not a soft southerner like us deluded fans,

    • ‘NCS’ ?? Obviously the ‘S’ is Sam but can you put someone not in your ‘loop’ out of my misery?

      • No Cojones Sam-NCS.This is bubs new term for Sam,because he doesnt have the balls to take responsibility for anything,lol 😉

  4. NCS will be his R.I.P marker when the ground is demolished Miichael you know what cajones are ?
    That would be a good name for the homes that will be built on our beloved turf
    NCS towers ( nice ring to it ) just next to Little Kev Villas and Andy C clinic ( for those with a little itch to play football )

  5. Hippohead flapping his gums about nothing again.Any way out of admitting you are a useless prehistoric manager.One of the last of a dying breed thank god!!!
