Sam to JT: “Having a drink makes no difference”

Community paybackSam Allardyce has confirmed James Tomkins will be doing work in the community  following his guilty plea last week for assaulting a police officer.

“He’ll be doing some community work. The bottom line is he shouldn’t have got himself in that situation and he should be acting with more responsibility.

I don’t take kindly to a lack of discipline on or off the pitch. I think it’s irresponsible and unacceptable. A player represents himself and his club.

Whether he had a drink or two makes no difference. So he’ll be doing some community work for us. It makes more sense, and is more effective as a West Ham boy, to be doing community stuff.” said Sam during his pre match press conference this morning when asked what action have you taken against James Tomkins?
