Irons react to Sam/Tomkins speculation

james-tomkinsWest Ham fans have reacted angrily to speculation that former boss Sam Allardyce – now installed for two years at Sunderland – may be preparing a bid for local lad James Tomkins.

The story was broken by a national newspaper this morning and the fans were quick off their marks to respond. They ain’t happy

Here’s a selection of their comments on Twitter:

1. BFS can think again @TomkinsOfficial isn’t going anywhere, he’s 1 of our own

2. Well if Tomkins goes he needs his head examining. Keep BFS away from my Hammers @FreeInside

3. The Olympic Stadium versus The Stadium of Light. You’d have to have a screw loose to choose the latter.

4. This Hammer’s determined to stay.

5. Joey O’Brien yes, James Tomkins NO WAY

  1. Most likely one of Fat Sam’s mind games, as others say Tomkins would be a fool to want to leave, and even IF Sunderland offer £10 Million (newspaper talk) we should say NO!

  2. What’s Abdoulaye Faye and ‘Relegation’ Roger up to nowadays?

    They’re more BFS’s style – he’s already got John O’Shea, Wes Brown, Kaboul and Coates – no problem – hang on, is he in trouble!

  3. The self rightiouse one is trying to disrupt the club !
    There’s no way the club will sell tomo , if they do the supporters wouud revolt !!!!
    We don’t need to sell and tomo is a big part of this squad and he is getting better a d better with age as another ex player was in his time at the club , Alvin martin ,!!!
    If memory serves me right Alvin had a lot of doubters when first became a regular and went on in time to be a class act !!! Tomo is also coming into that corridor now where he is coming of age ,to let tomo go would be a huge mistake for the club and I can’t see them selling ! Not only that why would the club help a nob who would love to damage the club in any way possible !!!!!
    It will not happen !!

  4. Lazy journalism. He’s just signed a new long term contract and we are moving to the Olympic stadium. Even if he can’t get a game between now and Christmas and is sitting on the bench why would he want to go and live up north only to get relegated.

  5. Evidently he feels loved up there !!!
    Won’t last long !!!!!!!!
    He’s laughing all the way to the bank, again , !!!!!!

  6. Won’t happen but Collins might but media enjoying a stir!

  7. He is bigging himself up & trying to get the fans on side. Got no interest in anything he says. Jog on.

  8. I ventured onto a Mackem site earlier,see what they actually had to say about Hippohead.Pretty split down the middle.However what made ke laugh most was a few of them wondering if they might be able to sign Kouyate & Sakho in January,lmao.Dream on lads 😀

  9. This is just paper talk, It’s not in Fat Shams nature to go against his MO – 30+ washed up old has Been’s only thank you very much
