Sam Allardyce appears safe at West Ham...for now

Sam AllardycePremier League Sack Race favourite Sam Allardyce remains in the West Ham dugout despite a titanic wave of negativity surrounding his future at the club. On Sunday rumours were rife that Big Sam was on the verge of being axed following a series of damning comments from the club's owners relating to Hammers players Ravel Morrison and Andy Carroll. The speculation went into overdrive the following day when co-owner David Gold favourited a derogatory tweet about Allardyce on Twitter, which read:

"Is today the day we get rid of BFS?? Fingers crossed"

David Gold Tweet

However, it has since emerged that Gold "accidentally" favourited the tweet due to "jet lag" from a 33-hour flight back from New Zealand, which all seems a bit suspicious. Despite the apology Allardyce will by no means feel assured at the helm, which is reflected in his Sack Race odds that have sunk from 7/1 to 8/11 (Sky Bet) in the last few days.

Allardyce will reportedly be given 10 games to prove himself at the start of the 2014/15 Premier League season. The 59-year-old only kept his job at the end of the previous campaign on the condition that he begins to employ a more exciting brand of football. Allardyce's precarious position isn't helped by his side's woeful pre-season, which has seen the club held by Stevenage and Ipswich, before losing Down Under to Wellington Phoenix and Sydney FC.
