Sam on way but not to Sunderland

SAllardyceSunderland will not be seeking permission to speak with Sam Allardyce!

Despite Hammers vice chairman Karren Brady claiming in her Sun column that her friends reckon the Irons boss is on his way to the north east, ClaretandHugh has learned the Black Cats will be looking elsewhere.

Gus Poyet’s sacking from the Stadium of Light in the last couple of hours sparked immediate speculation that the Hammers boss could be on his way to the club.

He is priced at 6/1 second best behind even money shot Dick Advocaat and well clear of 16/1 third favourite Paul Lambert.

But ClaretandHugh sources in the north east insisted this afternoon: “Sam is not in the frame for the job. It would have been perhaps convenient for West Ham had be been but he’s not a runner.”

However, it now looks nailed on that Allrdyce’s Irons reign will come to an end after the last game against Newcastle this season.

Upton Park insiders continue to insist a change is now nailed on.

One said: “Nothing’s forever and the Β search for a new manager has taken on a fresh urgency after the weekend.

The run of results since Christmas is just not acceptable. It would take a miraculous series of results yo change that.”

  1. Come on Sunderland,take him,he is the man for your job big time.Please dont give up,come & speak to him πŸ˜‰

  2. Allardyce to Sunderland would give him the unique distinction of being the only WHU manager ever to be poached by another club.

  3. Please take Sam Sunderland, do we have to keep him until the end of the season, and no way as some are calling for Neil Mc Donald to be put in temporary charge, he is in Sam’s pocket, all the coaching team need to go,

  4. Is there a Trevor Brooking in the house?

  5. Please just anybody come & take him,for my own sanity so i dont have to read about him being the stability we need to take us to the OS.Accrington,Grimsby,MerthyrTydfil.Pls someone come & take him πŸ˜‰

  6. I volunteer to drive him up there!

  7. Is it wrong that I’m waiting for the sacking story? Had enough! #coyi

  8. Haha,your not the only one Jeff,i cannot wait for the day when i read a headline somewhere saying The Flexible Sophisticated One has finally been shown the door.Of course this will deeply depress all the people who want his stability before & at the OS.Whatever!,lol πŸ˜€

  9. That will be a great day and an opportunity for celebration. There will be a great party that will last three days, obviously the invitation is also extended to Sam lovers. Music, group dancing and keggers…

  10. Haha,i will be there Matte,i will bring some of Sams favourite flavoured chewing gum for us all as a homage to The Flexible Sophosticated One who has & is doing such a wonderful job.So much so that he was almost booted out last summer & will more than likely be booted out this summer.If find it strange that if a guy is doing such an amazing job why he is not wanted anymore.Maybe the board cant understand the stability he brings like the Sam Lovers do.Silly board,totally clueless πŸ˜€

    • ahah… yes Rads, we’ll dance all together with the chewing gum. It will be the new trend for next summer “The Flexible dance”.

      • Lol,sounds good.But ofc we are just clueless guys who know nothing about football because we cannot see that keeping Sam for another 5yrs isnt the direction for the club do be going in.We must know our limitations & realize that it is Sam Lovers who are rhe real connoisseurs of the beautiful game πŸ˜€

  11. Be careful what you wish for boys. C.O.Y.I.

  12. Haha,yeah heard that one a million times before along with we need sams stability before we move to the OS & Better the devil you know.You better tell the board they are the ones making the mistake πŸ˜‰

  13. Wow,seems that even with one win in twelve Sams sycophants still see the sun shining out of his ass.Nothing like a bit of blind faith in a person.I have a great idea,lets keep BFS,keep our current form & we can all enjoy our last season at The Boleyn.Happy days all round.

    • To be brutally honest bruv I couldn’t care a toss who is our manager(preferably someone with a link to the club) but I first and foremost support West Ham United. C.O.Y.I.

  14. Well if you support WHUFC then i should imagine giving a toss bruv about who is manager maybe quite a major part of the club.I heard that they do quite an important job in football πŸ˜‰
