West Ham: “Sam got a mention at awards event”

sam-allardyceClaretandHugh is happy to point out that Sam Allardyce received a public mention at last night’s annual awards ceremony.

Earlier today we wrote a story  explaining that gossip from Allardyce watchers at the ceremony was that:

O 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.

O The he 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

O and that of more significance possibly was that Sullivan  – unlike last year – failed to give a speech or summing up of the season.

A West Ham spokesman – whilst making it clear the manager wasn’t involved in a “formal ” way – has asked us to say that he did get a public mention.

He said: “Sam, his coaching staff and players, were given a great reception by the supporters when they were asked to stand up. Sam also featured in several videos.

“We had a slight change of format on the night though so the outgoing Hammer of the Year, Mark Noble, was involved in a Q&A with TV presenter Ben Shephard, instead of the manager.”

  1. ahahah… Don’t be sad Sam, you are and you always be our Rockstar… Probably he had his sunglasses to make sure he couldn’t be identified… His hand would still hurt from signing autographs… lol
