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.!
