Sam Allardyce Made To Wait Over West Ham Future

Sean Raymond by Sean Raymond / 14 May 2014, 09:25

There have been reports this morning that West Man Manager, Sam Allardyce, will have to wait up to 10 days to discover whether or not he will be staying on at Upton Park. It was widely expected that Allardyce would be given the elbow earlier this week but after talks with the club, it appears as if the board have now decided that they will take some time to think about their decision.

Allardyce has been in the hot-seat at Upton Park for three years now but although he did guide them to a respectable 13th in the Premier League this season, the supporters have long been unhappy with the former Bolton gaffer. Fans of the Hammers clearly want to see a better style of football introduced to the club with Allardyce's direct style clearly not popular with the faithful. West Ham were in a relegation battle for long periods of the season and although they did pull clear in the end, the board will also be keen for them to improve next campaign.

So far, Allardyce has been backed by the board despite being under pressure but the feeling is that Allardyce could finally be set for the high jump with fans discontent clearly not going away. West Ham have placed all their eggs in moving to the Olympic Stadium in a couple of years time and building a strong team to attract the fans to a bigger stadium is likely to be the top priority from a business point of view.

The betting market for the Next West Ham Manager has been live for some time now and although Allardyce has been granted a stay of execution, it would be a major surprise if he was still in charge come August. With that in mind a number of Managers are being backed to head to Upton Park with Gus Poyet currently the market leader. Poyet has worked wonders to keep Sunderland in the Premier League and his attractive style of play would certainly be met with a positive response from the fans at Upton Park.

Another man who could come onto the radar of the David Sullivan and David Gould is Neil Lennon. There have been plenty of rumours that the Celtic Manager is itching for an opportunity in the Premier League and it could be that West Ham is the ideal destination for him after a successful spell north of the border. All of this does of course depend on the future of Sam Allardyce who does currently remain as the Manager of West Ham, for the time being at least.
