Sam on the ‘sack, short memories and madness’

Snidey AllardyceSam Allardyce has admitted he would have been history by now had he started the season the way he is finishing it.

Sam – like everybody else inside the club – has been making some realistic assessments about life as the depressing run of results continues but continues to fight his corner!.

We reported earlier that David Gold has declared that we must win today as he looks up the division. However Sam, it seems is looking backwards at his position.

After seeing his team collect 11 points from the last 12 games he said: “Let’s be honest here – if we had started the season with a similar bad run, I wouldn’t be here now – I would have been sacked. That’s a fact.

“We didn’t though. We might have begun a little slowly but when we hot our stride we were magnificent.”

And he then made it clear he believes he has done his job this season saying: “Have I delivered what I was asked to deliver? Yes.

“But when you do not get results, criticism comes your way. Everybody has a short memory. It is my job to remind them how well we played. keep a cool head and manage the madness.”

  1. BFS Is delusional and is using his luck at the beginning of the season as a escape clause,
    If he had stuck with a winning combination and kept Zarate at the club we would be in the top 6 and he would be getting a new contract but he could not change his spots,as soon as Nolan and Carroll were available he’d had to change our team using First fatigue and then to many games as his excuse,
    I personally have had enough and the directors should gag him as all he does is cause anger and frustration amongst the fans,
    The oldies in the home at WHUuntillidie will be wetting there rubber pants reading this.

  2. Just attack today Fatty for gods sake

  3. It makes me laugh,the guy is basically saying that form like we have now is the type that gets a manager the sack.But still you read these blinkered fans who say offer him a new contract because he brings stability.What a bunch of comedians they are.

  4. Good luck today at the match Tyson sorry I can’t be there,
    Hope this week you get entertainment for your money,
    Watch out for the angry BFS lovers they should be easy to spot when they get off there OAP mini bus today,( don’t think there is enough for a coach )

    • Cheers Bubs,would be nice to see a good game.Better than Sunderland is all i hope for,lol,oh & Valencia starting & Nolan warming the bench.Dont worry i will avoid the Sammerettes,its easy to spot them,they have brown stains on the tips of their noses 😀

    • Lol,i dont really give a shi*t what they think,each to their own.It must be full of employees of WHUFC.Only way some of their tunnel vision can be explained when it comes to Allardyce & Nolan.Aint worth going there to read their sycophantic love of Sam & Nolan.Well a few of them anyway.

  5. Poor Little hippo (in this picture he looks just like an hippo), we have not short memory, but very long memory. Except for the first two LUCKY months of this season (when your two muppets were out) I perfectly remember 4 years of rubbish and sophisticated excuses. Bye bye flexible man, man utd is waiting for you… Lol
