The general mood and gossip around the tables was that Allardyce was on his way to Sunderland and it was noted that when the formal event was over, he, Andy Carroll and Kevin Nolan appeared to have left the building relatively quickly.
The manager had not been involved in last night’s ceremony in an formal way either from the floor or the stage and was not mentioned publicly at any stage
Of more significance possibly was that Sullivan – unlike last year – failed to give a speech or summing up of the season.
However, despite all of that, one punter decided to splash out £5,000 in a charity auction in order to enjoy pub lunch with Mr Allardyce.
