Sam: We’re gonna win the league!

SamA“We’re gonna win the league!” Sam Allardyce  said in his post-match with a smile on his face.

The tongue in cheek remark was in response to thousands of West Ham away fans singing that  after the Hammers went 2-1 up just before half time.

Allardyce continued “For us to have 24 points at this stage of the season is one hell of a total based on where we were this time last year when we were almost in the bottom three. Our strength in depth is what is paying off for us at the moment. We had to make changes to the team again, some by fatigue and some by injury, and we used the squad to its maximum. In the end we have pulled off another victory. We had seven shots on target and five off target by half-time – we generally don’t get that in a whole game away from home.I think Everton was 17 attempts with three on target, but this was seven attempts on goal by half-time, which shows we were in dominant mood.The second half was somewhat disappointing because we did not carry it on, but I was still very happy with the victory. ”

When asked about the fan protests to oust him last year he replied  “What happened before is in the past, the game moves on very quickly”

  1. Its a massive turn around because the Golds trumped him and Curtis.As for more clear second half chances what was he watching? We didn’t have a chance of any note in the whole of the second half.Instead of being honest he is just deluded and lying to the supporters.

  2. Rugby what planet are you on? Who are the Golds? And he never said we had more 2nd half chances he said we were disappointing. Never mind what match was he watching what interview was you watching? His assessment was accurate he wasn’t lying.

    It will be wasted on you Rugby but I also liked his comment about what happened in the past is in the past. If you adopted that approach you would enjoy this season a lot more like 95% of the supporters are at the moment.

    Your hatred of Sam, and seemingly of our club, in my view is irrational.
