New Allardyce contract: Irons fans split

West Ham United v Nottingham Forest - npower ChampionshipA snap 24 hour poll on whether Sam Allardyce should be handed a new West Ham contract has shown that fans are as divided as ever on the issue.

Former Hammers striker Tony Cottee had called on the Upton Park board to give the 60 year lold a deal NOW and ClaretandHugh asked readers:

O whether fans believed that was the correct view

O whether he should be offered one at the end of the season

O or never be offered another deal

At the closure of the poll a total of 614 votes had been cast with 122 (19.87 per cent ) agreeing with Cottee; 163 votes (26.55 per cent) saying he should be offered one at the end of the season and 271 votes (44.14 per cent ) saying he should never be offered a new deal.

Fifty eight voters (nine per cent) recorded a don’t know vote.

The poll is now closed.

  1. I would ask those 122+163 voters: “What did you smoke?” I do not understand why some people are so masochist.

  2. That’s a split that would put a new government into power,
    Did anyone check the IQ of the people that voted to give him a new contract and weather they actually supported WHU,

  3. Has BFS family not heard of birth control,163 special need voters,it must be like The Undatables,how many votes did KN and AC have?

  4. The sample selected does not reflect the population – I did my own survey of 15 fans I know – 14 want him gone and 1 did not reply so there, it will be a disaster if he is around next season. I hear he again has Carroll on and both Sakho and Valencia taken off. A fool if there ever is one – a leopard never changes his spots. Get rid now and don’t wait till the end of the season..

  5. I would be chuffed if West Ham offered allardyce a new deal he’s been a great manager for us the first season he was with us he got us promoted back to the premier league first time of asking. the second season it was the first in the prem with allardyce and he got us to finish 10 th that year and I think that’s great for a newly promoted team and the third season with allardyce we finished 14th which isn’t great I’ll admit that but this year we are sitting 8th and we are only 5 points behind fifth which is great considering last year so I for one am a big Sam fan and i beg the board to offer him a new deal COYI
