Sam’s team could go down

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.

  1. I know that a certain person can’t stand Big Sam, but I find it ungracious to not respect him for what he did for this club when he took over a club that was in meltdown.
    I think it is nailed on that West Brom will go down as the squad that he took over, simply weren’t good enough.
    If he remains with West Brom, I’m sure they will bounce back under his leadership!

  2. If there is one WHU fan who doesn’t feel BFS did an amazing job first getting us promoted and then on a shoestring budget keeping us up, Then that man knows nothing about football.
    He really was quite something and built the very real foundation of what’s starting to happen now. Forget talk about style and not the west ham way he kept us in the premier long enough that the owners could then start to experiment and try to give the fans what they want….Thank-you Sam a special person/manager

  3. I agree that we owe BFS for getting us to where we are now – and I did sometimes admire his sense of humour – when asked to comment on Mo Diame’s desire to play for a top six team he said “Well he had better improve his performances then” (although he will never be forgiven for his scathing remarks about the “West Ham way” nor his ear-cupping after the 2-1 victory over 10-man Hull)

    However watching his West Ham was sometimes excrutiatingly painful – I remember a 2-0 win against Cardiff in his second season in the PL when we fought relegation – I could hardly bear to watch until an Andy Carroll assist allowed Nobes to score a second goal right on full time

    What is scary this time around is that two of the promoted teams look like going down together with a team that only had two seasons in the PL- while two of last year’s relegated teams are coming straight up and could be joined by the third after the pay-offs – which could suggest that Covid has assisted in making the gap between PL and Championship much wider and we could be in for this ongoing yoyo-ing between the two
