No drinky pooes for Sam from LVG


LVGSAMLuis Van Gaal’s lack of hospitality has left a bad taste in Sam Allardyce’s mouth!

Sam is having a moan-up in his London Evening Standard column about not getting a drink after the game at Old Trafford last Saturday.

Sam explained that a post drink valued tradition as far as he and most managers are concerned.

And he added: “Which is why I was surprised and, yes, disappointed, that there was no such invitation following our match at Old Trafford last weekend.

“When all was done and dusted after the match, I went to where Sir Alex Ferguson was invariably waiting with a glass of wine — and everything had changed. I think the room is now used for analysis.

“I was told it didn’t happen any more, so I said “fair enough” and left.

Louis van Gaal has every right to do things his way now, he’s the manager of Manchester United, but it struck a discordant note with me all the same.

“I don’t imagine there’ll be any such problems when I meet up with Harry Redknapp after Sunday’s game.”

Err, well no Sam because you say you always make sure you do it….???
