Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

Very surprised with the team selected and the way it was set up.

Maybe Sam does have a future, early days though......

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

Just my view that Sullivan and co have never had any intention of binning Sam. They'd like you to think that though. Keeps you on side and against Sam. But that's the point, I am not "on side" I think there dithering is seriously harming the club and making us a laughing stock by forcing sam to "pl...

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

I think you're seriously misguided if you think he won't get another contract if we finish anywhere between 8th-12th. And there is criticism on here for people who are sucked in by Sam's 'PR'. The Board have got some of you hook line and sinker. We will see. Why have the board got me hook line and ...

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

Of course you're being bloody selective. You've selected a bunch of games from last season prior to us signing 9 new players who can totally transform both the strength of our starting 11 and the quality of football played. Be man enough to wipe the slate clean, and then be patient enough to see wh...

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

TTS no but there are as you are aware, twisters on her who's only reason they want Sam gone is his size, his ethnicity, his manner, not reasonable arguments as to why the man should lose his job , I think you would agree. are you being serious ? How about we have lost 10 out of the last 14 league g...

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

Yes Mick very serious . He's so good at it Koeman had his side switch to short corners ......and they got a goal because one of the two subs introduced by Sam did not do his job and pick up his man . And had Carlton gone off it wouldn't be an off chance in having a corner to defend it would have be...

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

Yes Mick, it's his job , the one he is assigned . Laugh as much as you want at my post but that's the reason Carlton was still on the pitch . And Sam is not our first Manager to use him in that role .He may not be the last either . I'm well aware of his job at corners but it should not be a reason ...

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

I would like to see Allardyce leave with West Ham entrenched in the top 10, with a squad of 18 - 20 players who are all top 10 Premier League players, with a 2 or 3 youth players on the cusp. I still think that we're a little velnerable, a little wobbly if you will to bring in a brand new manager w...

Brilliant so were now gauging him on whether someone else wants him, talk about clutching at straws mick, you really are scrapping the bottom of the barrel. The point is mick, as you well know, if he wasn't here he'd be in a job this season in the prem league It was just an observation, nothing to ...

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

What is your criteria for sacking him Mick, straight up, no fannying about? The breakdown of the relationship between the Board and the Manager for me is the most important factor in his sacking. They obviously want rid of him but don't want to pay him off, so they make unrealistic requests on Sam ...

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

TTS - What would it take for you to want Sam sacked ? Bottom 3 at christmas ? Constant long balls being sent into the box ? Never sack him as he has a "contract"? I find it quite funny that Sam has to by memory never been linked with another job, seeing as he is in his last year you think some clubs...

From a learning process as a team/squad and manager we are still very much on the start of that curve... Compared to last few seasons this is completely different ball game for all of us ... Most of the negative influences and factors from previous seasons are not here so much and with the window a...

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

[quote="Up the Junction"][quote="mickfbrown"]I personally didn't give him any plaudits as it was a team he was basically forced into.
Utter nonsense.

Why ?

You think Zarate would have started against Palace ?

I agree with you and Wizzo , Kouyate is an absolute beast.

Re: Allardyce: Stick or twist

I don't recall you giving him any plaudits, mick. In fact, I know you didn't. Yet you're only too willing to jump in here when there's an opportunity for criticism. Not many with you on this one, it seems, as most agreed with the starting line-up. I personally didn't give him any plaudits as it was...
