Video Blog: Fiery debate as Allardyce returns

It’s the debate which has run and run and run.

Sam Allardyce is back . He returns to the Boleyn this weekend with his relegation threatened Sunderland team looking for three points over the Irons.

Tis is going to be a spikey old afternoon with a section of fans determined to let him know exactly what they think of him, his refusal to accept a West Ham Way and his cupped ear gesture to them after a dreadful win over 10 man Hull City. Others will show their appreciation at what they believe he did for the club.

It’s fair to say that Sam Allardyce divides!

And in this video a red hot debate takes off between the boys on Hammers Chat – the ClaretandHugh video blog partners. Whichever side of the debate you are on – this one is not to be missed.

  1. Fans that have paid good money to watch west ham have every right to vent their dismay at what he served up.I could only watch west ham via internet,tv or listen on the radio.I often fell asleep or turned over with frustration but at least it was free and watched from the comfort of my home.I felt awful for those that traveled the country at great cost only to see such negative tatics and bland football.So no one slag off our fans who are going let him know how they feel on saturday…they have paid for the right to do so.

  2. Tell me about it exsoulie.I was one of those idiots that wasted thousands travelling the country watching his teams rollover when he didnt fancy our chances in his chosen games because we had a more winable game up next.Its all very well people preaching that we should respect him,give him a great reception but i bet they wasnt the mugs who were getting in at between 3-5am after travelling back from a game Hippohead had no intention of tring to win.Is great saying he got us promoted & stabalized us but that is just the gloss that covers a whole load of other deeper issues that got up peoples bugles..So no one preach to me about what i should or shouldnt f*cking do.

  3. I don’t understand why people think we owe him a round of applause? He had nothing but contempt for the fans. You look at the guys track record. Awful footy everywhere, and the only places he’s had any real success are aT clubs where he has been bigger than the club itself i.e. Bolton and rovers. Newcastle was a disaster, and he thought he was better than he was after 2 seasons at West Ham. He assumed we would all be in awe of his masterful abilities to carve out a 1-0 win at home to a team in the bottom 3. He thought his stock was higher than it was with us, and as soon as he realised we didn’t think he was the genius he thought he was , the toys came out of the pram. I won’t boo him, and I won’t applaud him, instead I’ll singing slaven bilic claret and blue army, something that Sam never achieved with the fans in his entire tenure. We have our West Ham back now, so sooner celebrate our progress rather than dwell on big sham.

  4. You’ve got Big Sam
    The clueless Big Sam
    I just don’t think you understand
    He’s known as Hippo-man
    He lags behind my nan
    You’ve got the clueless Big Sam

    Hi Bubs, Rads, Ty, and the whole C&H’s crew… how are you? You’re always in my heart… I saw the Hippo’s face and I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist… He brings back a lot of good memories… I miss him and his fantastic, spectacular and amusing football… the king of long balls… lol 🙂

    And yes, we were wrong, our team was much better under his leadership… Payet, Lanzini… nah, they are nothing compared to Mr Nolan… But fortunately we have reached 40 points, we’re safe, we dodged a bullet … lol 🙂
