Sack Sam petition launched

A petition calling for Sam Allardyce’s removal as manager of West Ham United has been launched before a ball has been kicked in anger!

Four pre-season games in and with a record showing two draws and two defeats has been sufficient for  a tidal wave of discontent to rise up among Hammers supporters.

And long term critic, Twitter user @FatSamAllardyce hasnow  launched his ‘Sack Sam Allardyce’ ipetition.

It reads: This is a message to the owners of West Ham United Football Club.

Please sack Sam Allardyce + restore some pride at this great club of ours
After following the team I love for over 30 years, I have never seen the club so divided. From the Board to the Manager to the Fans.
I have received hundreds of tweets saying that they would even send money to help get rid of him. This is how bad it is! We are just desperate to love the club again.
This petition shows how serious we are.

  1. If BFS stay ‘s we will be back in the Championship !! It’s that simple .

    • We don’t all wanna be running polls we know where that goes

    • Why? He’s been at West Ham for 3 seasons, we have signed better players than we had last season and we haven’t been relagated under Sam yet! Back to front, uninspired football yes, but I don’t see why we would be relagated?? Coyi!

  2. Has the petition been taken down? Last tweet from that account 25 June! Maybe worth a straw poll on c & h, or is the abuse from the Sam lovers not worth it?! 🙂 coyi!

  3. Oh Give it a rest will you. Judge him after ten premier league games when it’s the full A team and they’re not all knackered from pre season training sessions before they even play the game

  4. Yea give it rest wait until we are relegated before judging him you silly boys.
    It’s not fair they are all knackered after so many weeks off, just like Newcastle.

  5. I can’t believe people are so negative that they think we will be in a relagation battle before we kicked a ball this season! Sure it doesn’t read well that we have drawn two and lost two of our pre-season fixtures, but haven’t these fans noticed we haven’t fielded the full team in any of these games? If we start the league poorly, then I agree Sam will have to go. But until the season starts and we see the first choice eleven play a few games, people should feel optimistic for this season! I know we aren’t good enough to realistically get into Europe this season, but there is no way this squad is inferior to any of the promoted sides or in my opinion Palace, Villa, West Brom, Hull or Stoke. Give Sam a couple of months to try to make a solid side( 14 clean sheets last season) more offensive and if he fails, bring in someone new. Coyi!!

  6. its not all about being negative as you put it, but about the truth and the results hurt us as fans of the club that we love so much and have followed for over 40 odd years. The first half team line up was a full EPL line up against Sydney and we went behind 2-0, it’s hard to be so positive about losing to what I would think are sub standard opposition ! But hey you talk it up! Let’s now wait and see what happens in Germany. The Fan’s will still be here with our club though thick and thin no matter what or where sam goes, Crystal Palace if I remember last season we didn’t beat, and by the way and they finished above us. Maybe the coach had something to do with it.

  7. As an Hammers fan in Australia let’s just be clear on one thing…any EPL side should never lose to an A-League side. The A-League plays less than 30 games in a season and finished in April and starts up again in October. Everyone of Sam’s excuses is equally applicable to Sydney FC and Wellington.

    In fact an A-League team turns over between 33%-50% of their team each year. Contract lengths are short 1-2 years and there are no transfer fees unless the player is being poached to go to an overseas club. Down here my work colleagues, friends and family cannot believe that an EPL side could possibly lose to an A-League team. “Oh Dear” is all I have heard for the past week.

    Make no mistake these results are an absolute disgrace. Any manager of any professional football team should expect to be sacked. The Australian coach got the sack after losing 6-0 to Brazil and France. I cannot believe they flew him back to England. Seriously!!

  8. How do I sign up.
    How much more can we take of this horrible man at our club.
    We have gone so far backwards under him its going to take a miracle worker to sort the **** out.

  9. I have supported the HAMMERS not irons since 1947 including the speedway team but sad to say no longer! The latest results show that we are going to play good old sams way till we reach div2 if things stay as they are.I For a number of years he was sneered at for being the long ball manager because he would not alter.Due to our only three results after an embarrassing season we escaped the relegation battle as other teams were all playing poorly.If an attacking style of play is going to happen we need attacking players not defensive ones!! any way till change occurs off to dagenham or even hornchurch to watch football
