No mention of West Ham Sam? Hmmm

West Ham United v Nottingham Forest - npower ChampionshipThis must be a first and in the current circumstances it’s hard not to read something into it!

We can’t be 100 per cent certain but in the several years Sam Allardyce has been writing his London Evening Standar on a Friday, West Ham – HARDLY SURPRISINGLY – gets a mention.

Appearing on a Friday, there is genrally always a match preview but yesterday – nothing!

He covered Chelsea not being boring…a mention of his old buddy Nigel Pearson at Leicester City and a piece on Eddie Howe in which he advised him to stay in the Premier League. Well yeah.

But as for Burnely, the game, the state of things at West Ham – absolutely nothing .

Make of it what you will but it is extremely odd on the face of it – a West Ham manager talking about everything but West Ham and an upcoming game.!

  1. His pathetic ego is more important than his team. First of all he tries to cover his fat a*s and then maybe all the rest.
    His last interview perfectly shows his great interest to West Ham: 0.


  2. When I read it Hugh it was as if at last he has been gagged or warned about making the fans angry,s A West Ham fan it was a boring read,
    But his ethos never changed, he is obviously high up in the pecking order than Eddie Howe
    With all that advise he was passing on
    Thinks he is on par with Marinio and is now there number 1 fan and compared with us they are not boring is that what he ment,
    And we all know Pearson is his mate,
