Sam’s jolly at the races

chesterSam Allardyce and Neil McDonald enjoyed a day of full VIP hospitality at Chester Races yesterday courtesy of West Ham sponsors Betway.  Guest of honour Allardyce was asked to present the winner of the Betway handicap race with a bottle of champagne.

When we asked a West Ham insider today why Sam was not at the training ground on a Thursday in the run up to our game against Aston Villa we were told: “Yesterday was a designated day off as the players had an extra session on Wednesday. Everyone back in and training today.”

  1. Wonder if there was a race named after him.’The Betway Hippohead Stakes’ maybe 😉

  2. You can be certain he only placed each way bets. No way he’d risk betting on the win.

    Respect the 2nd or 3rd place.

  3. Probably did a forecast but borrowed the money from one of the boys,
    I got married in a suit like that 30 years ago,in fact I gave it to a charity shop,
    No it was never that big ( false alarm )
    No Mrs A must be house hunting ( Chester area ) Bolton or Blackburn ?

  4. With him there, it should be renamed from Chester to stomacher.

  5. I bet he made the boy double up on Wednesday just so he could go on the lash

  6. What 2 hours training instead of 1 ?
    Form a wall ten yards in front of goal and don’t move,not you Enner get up the other end by yourself if we get a corner pass it to Kev so he can score,
    That’s it lads have a shower Kev stay another 5 mins and practice your celebration dance,
    Andy lay down don’t sit up your suffer from fatigue and won’t be able to spend the whole summer in Africa doing yoga for the Twitter account,

  7. Different humour I have trouble with Americn comedy at times,
    It’s a age thing dementia I think,that’s the problem keep having flashbacks when we played good football and I enjoyed being a fan then I come back to now and suffer BFS bordem
    They were not ramblings that is a true account of a BFS training day,

  8. I’m a Brit in exile so no issues with the humor. But you nailed it today with that!

  9. I try and bring some light humour to our day until Armageddon and BFS leaves,
    But football to me is a love affair,I just want a good standard for our club,
    I don’t need us to be number 1 in the world and the only reason I would prefer us being in the premier is we play against the best so even if we loose we get to see the best,
    I knew you were an expat but just making conversation.
