Sam and Sack Race – or the Irons attacking policy


New allardyceGreat quip from the Daily Mirror’s betting expert Derek McGovern whilst discussing Sam Allardyce’s sacking odds this morning.

He wrote: “It’s appropriate that Sam Allardyce is the new favourite in the ┬áthe sack race.

“The sack race is defined as a race in which contestants compete by jumping up and down in a sack, which pretty much sums up West Ham’s attacking policy last season!” LOL

He believes Allardyce may have ridden out his mid-summer crisis and isn’t sure he deserves to be favourite for the bullet.

And today he is backing the Hammers to win declaring: “Their opponents, you see, are Spurs – better known as West Ham’s bitches!”
