I’m sure a lot of Hammer fans are going to disagree with me on this one for various reasons but if truth be told, Allardyce has to be ‘launched’ and a new manager has to take his place pronto if the club is going to stay up in the Premiership and walk into their new Olympic stadium with their heads held high.
I don’t know what the problem is with the two Davids but if were them, Sam Allardyce would have got his P45 weeks back. Last night’s defeat to Manchester City was a joke. A 6-0 drubbing by Pellegrini’s men was difficult to take. For a moment I thought that City felt they were Barcelona, stringing numerous passes together and making the Hammers look like mugs.
Allardyce has clearly lost the respect of the dressing room. Iron Bobby pointed out that West Ham never even picked up a card. That means that the players were not up for it and didn’t give a hoot.
This brings me to my next point; I want Harry Redknapp back! Ok, I know I’m creating a few enemies with this one but lets face the facts guys. Either we get a manager in whose got a record of turning ‘things around’ ie Portsmouth, or we face going down to the Championship next season and walking into the Olympic stadium as second best.
I know Redknapp left the Hammers and I know he has been bent on trying to sign all and sundry so that West Ham can’t sign them. Eidur Gudjohnsen ring any bells?
I am also aware that he went to the dark side and joined Tottenham, for crying out loud. But with all that said and done, wouldn’t Redknapp be the ideal manager to turn the club’s fortunes around?
Obviously the Davids are shying away from booting out Allardyce because they will have to pay him a hefty fee. Might I kindly remind the Hammer bosses that the cost of going down to the Championship along with ‘humiliation’ would cost rather more.
I’m running out of ideas and patience, so at the risk of the Hammers’ fans wrath, I offer myself as a slaughtered lamb. If you have any constructive ideas on what Allardyce should do or if you think David Gold and David Sullivan should get Harry Redknapp back, I would love to hear them below.
