Sam Allardyce bites back at West Ham boo boys

Sam AllardyceA shocked Sam Allardyce has criticised the West Ham faithful for booing his side after Wednesday 2-1 win at home to 10-man Hull. The victory may have ended a run of three consecutive defeats, but a section of the home crowd were left unimpressed at the Hammers' failure to take control and dominate the match.

Many supporters have long been frustrated at Big Sam's one dimensional approach, which has not always been easy on the eye. If rumours were to be believed then the veteran boss seemingly came close to losing his job earlier this year following a number of poor performances, which saw the Iron briefly sit bottom of the table. However, the club backed the former Bolton boss, and it paid dividends, as he impressively led his side to four wins out of four during February, which subsequently won him the Manager of the Month award.

However, March started poorly, with the club suffering three defeats on the spin to Everton, Stoke and Man Utd, before squeezing past Hull, who had one less player for more than an hour. Allardyce is now available at 20/1 in the Premier League Sack Race, and he will now no doubt be sweating having previously been priced at 100/1.

The 11th-placed Hammers are not yet entirely safe from the drop, with Allardyce believing his side need to reach the 38 point mark in order to survive (they are currently four points adrift of this point with seven games remaining). Next up for the East London outfit is a trip to struggling Sunderland on Monday, which is followed by daunting back-to-back fixtures against Liverpool and Arsenal.
