Sam repeats “results don’t matter” mantra

sam-allardyceSam Allardyce is proving to be entirely consistent in his attitude towards pre-season results.

The manager has claimed consistently he really doesn’t care about scorelines  too much and that was again the mantra after we had beaten Schalke yesterday afternoon.

He said: “It’s about match fitness and results are not the important thing. It’s about steering clear of injuries and building up that sharpness and the team getting to know each other.

“We’ve obviously got quite a few new players that have arrived and young players that have integrated into this pre-season, which is great for everybody. It is always nice to win a game of football of course!”

  1. I’m really interested to know how we set ourselves up to compete.

    We are without Carroll (possibly not a problem) try without Nolan..thanks but no thanks!
    so lets get creative and thread balls through to Valencia and Zarate from wide positions (Downing, Jarvis…..Valencia)….meanwhile the ball isn’t 2 metres in the air….
    we have enough defenders and creative / workmanlike midfielders with nouse, experience and pace..

    ALL WE NEED IS A MANAGER OF FOOTBALL.

    Our owners are dedicated.. our fans are dedicated (and the best) our team manager is a total disgrace to West Ham Utd.
    GET SHOT NOW COS IF YOU LOSE TO SPURS THERE’S NO WAY FORWARD

  2. Note how the Dudley Dinosaur hasn’t exactly taken the opportunity to try out the entertaining, attacking football. Perhaps he’s perfected it so well behind closed doors that there’s no need to demo it in NZ or Germany before blowing away Spurs & the rest of the Prem with it starting in a few days’ time!? Or then again – maybe not…
