Sam’s excuses:”You may not want to read this!”


Sam Allardyce’s assessment:

 “We have got eight clean sheets so far this season. That is a brilliant return as we only got 11 last season.

“We all know that the goal factor is the problem for us and we would be higher up the league if we could score more.

“Creative players were on the field against Sunderland but they didn’t play at their creative best.”
