Speculation amongst fans is currently rife as to whether West Ham’s Sam Allardyce will remain as manager.
The news comes shortly after fans lash out over a poor loss to a weak Aston Villa side.
Many believe that it is Allardyce’s time to leave Upton Park and are calling for chairmen David Gold, and David Sullivan to give him the axe.
However, the more optimistic of fans believe that it is essential he stays.
Allardyce’s contract runs out this summer and he has lead the Hammers to 11th place in the Premier League this season. Many are calling for legend Paolo Do Canio to come home and take Allardyce’s place, but in all fairness, it is too soon.
Ex Southampton manager Nigel Adkins is currently on the market after being sacked for unknown reasons. Adkins performed magnificently for the Saints during his era, leading them to promotion is two successive seasons.
In my opinion, sacking Sam Allardyce with just over 10 games of the season left is the worst thing that could happen to the team, with regards to morale.We currently sit 11th in the league which many would have begged for prior to the start of the season.
Instead, I feel that Allardyce’s contract should not be renewed unless he re-arranges his tactics and style of play, of which have been pinpointed by the Hammers faithful during the past few games.
11th place is very good for a team of our current calibre, but with the individuals that we have, maybe we can do better?
His ideal replacement is Alan Curbishley who “knows the club well, and is experienced.”
The question still remains, as the ambiguous opinion of football carries on to underlie the games!
