It Had To Happen-Calls For Big Sam!


As the Irons were 'going through the motions' as they played out the remaining minutes of their 2-0 defeat by Tottenham, apart from brushing off old copies of the A-Z for directions to obscure grounds that may well have to be visited, discussion at the Org was swiftly moving on to the inevitable media fall out that would follow.
Sure enough there was the usual Moyes out, Anderson's useless let's hope the club gets taken over and all the other 'standard' comments rolled out after a West Ham United defeat, which is sadly a very common experience of late!

This time, in addition to the usual trite observations the inevitable started to creep in to people's twitter, twatter, instant mash and all the other face space stuff accounts (we don't cut and paste them, there are plenty of others that do), and that is the call of the dinosaur! Step forward Big Sam Allardyce, yep the same Big Sam 'released' by the club who was most recently employed by Everton to keep them in the top flight.

Now retro is the 'in thing' when it comes to car design, the Mini, the Fiat 500 and the VW Beetle have all been reintroduced to the gullible public, Mutton dressed as Lamb? Possibly so, privately the design teams must at least be just a little embarrassed by their lack of forward thinking, the same can apply to football club owners. This unique band of people have the happiness and joy of thousands of people in their grasp, they moan they groan but they still love the Power and prestige it gives them.

The Hammers hierarchy are no different, they seek acknowledgement and thanks that they are never going to receive, and yet still they persist with their ownership. They tried to go large by employing Manuel Pellegrini, and when that ended up disastrously they had to bring David Moyes back to the club to stay in the top flight, he insisted on a caveat in his contract that 'guaranteed' him at least 18 months in the job.

Moyes' return to West Ham has not had the same effect as when he first turned up at the London Stadium, the club have only won two matches since he replaced Pellegrini and there is a groundswell of opinion that he has to go. So who is the Barclays Premier League's go to manager to avoid relegation? None other than Big Sam!

Sam Allardyce has been out of work since being 'dumped' by Everton despite keeping them in the top flight, in fact Allardyce has never been relegated from the Barclays Premier League in all his various tenures, so could he be called on? David Sullivan and Co will be desperate to keep the club up, but it may be too late, even for Big Sam to save the club now.

The gap might be too much to bridge, even for Big Sam. -Ed

The big fat one wouldn't want to know, he'd fart in our general direction and check his fake Rolex watch. I'd rather have SpongeBob Squarepants...

We couldnt,this is all going backwards,clutching at straws,whatever you may call it,there is no direction at this club what so ever to go forward,if we go down and stay down so be it,this has been looming year in year out,all the talk of big times ahead in this wonderful stadium,that hasnt happened,it will be down to Sugo and Brady to get us out of it one way or the other as it will be them that got us relegated,and a half empty Bom,oh silly me there isnt anyone there now.

Essex mate going backwards is what we are good at! Bringing back Moyes was a backward step, passing backwards is the norm. I think you and I and many more just recognise that the inevitable will happen so bring it on. The chumps league is a shocker to get out of but with a good young coach and a strategy of focusing on young local talent I think we could adjust to a few years in lower league. i think the BoM will be a bit more understanding and give such a set up time some patience

Sam is exactly what we need right now - back 5 hoofing it nice and long over the heads of Anderson and lanzini and noble, bouncing it off Antonio's head for the re-signed Kevin Nolan to crawl up to the box and knee the ball in for a stunning 4-1 loss to anyone and everyone.

Lol!!! Thats it Dicksy,hopeless Anderson,and Noble all he does is pass it back,i mean really having Nolan as a coach is a laugh,he was a real lazy bastard when he played,and his management skills turned out to be class......so he came to us.
