Sam and Manuel in pressure cooker!

PelleSo who’s under the most pressure this afternoon – Manuel Pellegrini or Sam Allardyce?

Both head up two out of form teams desperate for wins but effectively for the same reason to take the pressure off themselves and help them PERHAPS save their jobs.

Incredibly, City go into the game with five defeats since the beginning of March  whist the Hammers slump is too well known to mention again.

Nothing would surprise this afternoon although the bookies have City at around 1/4 rto win, the Irons 11/1 and 11/2 the draw, depending where you shop.

West-Ham-v-Hull-Sam-Allardyce-bubbles_2756968It would be good to believe that – with absolutely nothing to lose Mr Allardyce may go for broke but with City looking to restore some confidence in front of their oen fans after the 4-2 derby day drubbing Irons fans have good reasons to be fearful.

Having said all that 11/1 is too godd to resist so m y Betfair accound will carry a tenner bet.

Who’s under most pressure – I’d say Pellegrini because it now seems pretty much a given Sam’s on his way regardless.

But it’s a real close call.

  1. Sorry about the tenner Hugh but worth a punt,who,s job safe is safe now, even with the defeat we are all expecting our directors will leave it till the end of the season,
    Pellegrini will go if they know the can get there man they want and there will be a big personal change ( with a bit of luck some might find there way to us)
    A mother week everyone will have got it right the result the manager poll,
    Wonder which player will be the first to defend BFS this week ?
    How many points will we pick up till the end of the season ?
    What league position will we finish in ?

  2. I’d say City’s manager is more likely to get the sack rather than SA at the moment, just an observation given the loyalty over both owners history

  3. Swop ? City would surely want a sophisticated manager with a tactical master skillz

  4. had to laugh at sophisticated one get animated over a free kick that wasnt this man is a joke plz get rid G & S
