Sam looking at psychologist plan


SamSam Allardyce is looking to call in a psychologist following his claim the Hammers may have become too cocky after the Southampton win.

When asked if the Hammers had a psychologist in place he said: “Not at the moment. But I am thinking of looking at that again to get the players’ frame of mind right.

“It is obviously very important.We had a real problem against Southampton. There was a problem retaining information.

“We lost the game on not covering two set plays and that was a real kick in the teeth for me

“We do a lot of practise with the players – on their iPhones and their iPads. We clearly didn’t do things correctly and that was a major let-down for me.”

“That all boils down to when a player is on the field taking responsibilities a lot more seriously than they did against Southampton. There is no logical reasons for them doing what they did.”

However some Hammers fans have taken to social media this morning to reply to his comments saying any psychologist should start with the manager himself to irradiate his arrogance and cockiness.
