Sam urges Ravel to get to grips with discipline


Ravel MorrisonSam Allardyce has made it clear that so long as Ravel Morrison gets to grips with “the discipline side of the game” he will get his West Ham chance this season.

He explained the club thought Ravel’s time had come this time last year but then “he drifted away and finished the season at Queens Park Rangers on loan helping them get promotion.”

He said:”He’s now had surgery on an injury that was troubling him and if he knuckles down to the discipline side of the game the chance is there for him.

“That’s all he has to do because in terms of ability he is outstanding but the discipline side is important.”

Being interviewed on TalkSport he added: “It’s all about having no regrets at the end of your career.

“In your early 20s you think it will go on forever but in fact it’s over almost like clicking your fingers.”

    What an idiot! typical Sam, he does not like it is the owners talk about him on radio, but it is okay for him! Ravel has had problems but at West Ham I feel they have been caused more by Sam, does he not toe the line like Nolan & Carroll? his two favourite boys, also Sam will not like natural talent like Morrison, every day it becomes clear the owners should have shipped BFS out at the end of the season, I can’t see Sam changing.
