The old mantra that Sam’s teams do not go down could finally be broken.
The former West Ham manager Sam Allardyce’s luck finally appears to be running out after his West Bromwich Albion drew 2-2 with Aston Villa in what was seen as a must win game.
Substitute Keinan Davis scored a 92nd-minute equaliser for Aston Villa dashing Sam’s hopes. The Baggies are now nine points adrift with five games left to play.
They play Wolves next Monday, then Arsenal followed by Liverpool. On 15th May they play West Ham at the Hawthorns but it is likely to be all over by then. Then face Leeds United on the last day of the season which looks like their last in the Premier League for now.
Former Hammer Robert Snodgrass who joined West Brom to aid their relegation has been restricted to eight appearances, he has not played in over six weeks through injury.
