Allardyce: Stick or twist?

Post by JibHammer » Sat Nov 23, 2013 7:21 pm

I know, I know, but he seems to have no idea. No win in 10 games against some frankly awful opposition, no idea how to spend his money, no idea how to switch things up and constant faith in Nolan who frankly has been utterly useless this season.

The false number nine is utterly shocking, we are not Spain / Barcelona or have midfielders who often get into double figures for goals, so how is it sustainable?

Time to have a reshuffle I think, need a manager to take us on a run for a bottom half 13/14 finish.

Slate me if you feel but I am fed up with Allardichio, the writings on the wall.

We've had a few bad weeks after two and a bit years under Big Sam. He can't be held entirely responsible for injuries to Carroll and Petric which have seriously scuppered our chances of scoring goals.

The team are clearly low on confidence and I think there's a feeling of having to ride it out until January (when we can hopefully strengthen the squad) among the hierarchy. The reality is that maintaining our PL status has to be this season's top priority and I think we'll stay up with Allardyce at the helm. Not even worth contemplating a change of manager until May at the earliest, IMO.

Whatever you guys do now, just don't repeat the mistake you made of sticking with a dud manager, as you did with Uncle Avram.
Allardyce does not have a plan B and is making mistake after mistake and no longer getting anything out of this group of players. Time to have a very hard think about the managers future, and the clubs.

May might be too late.

Explain these decisions then:

- Leaving Diame out, then bringing him on as a wide player (he destroyed Chelsea last year)
- Bringing Maiga on, he shouldn't be playing in this league (Carlton also run Chelski ragged last year)
- Not playing a striker for so long, even taking a punt on a youngster
- Never subbing Nolan, or dropping him when he is being a complete passenger

Downing was a great decision if we had a striker best player on our side today and for the last few games. message to board stuff fpp and dig deep otherwise suffer the finacial consequences.

It's not Allardyce. It's the board. We had a shocking transfer window

We have no f*cking attack

I forgot the board plays a false number 9 week after week. We do have strikers, just need to use them.

Why? Allardyce chose to sign downing (when we didn't need a winger) we needed a striker!
