Rav gets Allardyce treatment

ravelWe had planned to ignore the outpourings of the former manager but we guess some of you may be interested in his discourse today on Ravel Morrison.

Continuing in his bid to sell his book via The Sun he reveals that the Lazio midfielder spent Christmas 2013 in Manchester alleging that was because he didn’t fancy a relegation battle.”

The Hammers were involved in a dogfight over the festive period, following their defeat at Old Trafford on December 21.

He said: “The end came after we’d played at Manchester United. Rav stayed up north to see his family and didn’t come back. He wasn’t injured, he just didn’t fancy getting involved in our festive relegation battle.

“We couldn’t get hold of him until the lads saw a picture of him on Facebook enjoying Christmas lunch with his family while they were preparing for our Boxing Day game.

“Rav was potentially a £50million player but he has blown his career and it’s unlikely to happen for him now.”

We still await any details of Morrison’s allegation that Allardyce’s agent Mark Curtis wanted to get him into his stable of players. Perhaps that comes tomorrow.

  1. There’s not much that I can agree with BFS about but I make him right about Ravel Morrison – to use a word that seems to have become acceptable on here, Morrison is an even bigger ‘bellend’ than BFS, if that’s possible!

    At least old Hippohead has had a career of sorts, which you can’t say about Morrison – a truly foolish young man – shame!

  2. … having said that, it’s just another low trick that BFS is using to sell his grubby book – he’s used the ‘delusional’ West sham fans ploy, he’s used the ‘West Ham Way’ ploy now he’s using poor little Rav – he’ll probably have a go at Newcastle or Blackburn to try and whip up interest in book – pretty tawdry stuff!

    I promise never to write another thing about BFS – he’s not worth it – I just feel sorry for Sunderland fans that they’re going to have to put up with his lies and lame excuses!

  3. Screw Allardyce and his book selling drivel, when we see him next and in relation to all this hyperbole we should just cup an ear !!
