Sam reckons a new deal’s on the way

Praying AllaSam Allardyce reckons only a change in ownership will mess up his chances of getting a new West Ham deal.

No talks have yet been planned but Allardyce, whose previous two-year extension was signed in May 2013, insisted he is ‘comfortable’ to wait.

‘Just after getting promoted [in 2012] there were no new contract talks in the Premier League until April and the back of end May. It will probably be the same this time round. I’ve always been comfortable with that. I was last time and I’m comfortable with it this time.’

Speaking to the Mail he added: ‘Whether you have a contract or haven’t got a contract, if you have good results you’re fine. If you haven’t got good results, whether you have a contract or not, you get sacked.

‘If you get a set of new owners then they might not like you and it doesn’t matter how well you do, they’ll move you on. From that point of view, I can’t see West Ham being sold at this moment in time.’

And he added: ‘We are winning a lot of people over. But any fans at any club, when results are not going well, make themselves heard. You always win them over if you start winning, playing better and buy better players.’

  1. I make him right!

    I think for the first time the owners will be inclined to talk new contracts with their manager before season end. Another 2 year deal will be on the table in January if Sam keeps this going beyond Christmas.

    I think as important as the team starting off out of the blocks today is the fans starting off their most rowdy selfs from the very first whistle. They will play a big part in putting Swansea on the back foot from the start.


  2. They’d be breaking a habit of a lifetime if they do. Not their MO mate

  3. 18 points from the games you list above and I can see it on his desk on the 2nd Jan!!
