Claret and Hugh Associate editor Sean Whetstone spoke to former Hammer Martin ‘Mad Dog’ Allen earlier on the Love Sport Radio breakfast show on Thursday.
The pair spoke about West Ham’s 2-0 defeat against Manchester City on Wednesday night and David Moyes’ role as manager.
While Sean suggested that Liverpool away next Monday would result in another defeat Allen disagreed and suggested that Liverpool were due a loss and went to share an upbeat account how he thought the Hammers would easily climb to Premier League safety by beating the likes of Southampton, Newcastle, Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea and Norwich City.
Maybe Allen should join the manager’s backroom team and give a team talk.
Martin Allen was a £670,000 West Ham signing by manager Lou Macari in 1989. After six years with the Hammers and 232 appearances, he left in September 1995 when he made a £500,000 switch to Portsmouth after a period on loan.
