How many more chances does Sam Allardyce need before he is finally given the boot from West Ham?
Game after game it appears the Hammers are getting worse and by doing so are dropping lower down into the relegation zone. As things do not seem to be getting any better for them it seems that the only place they will be heading is down to the Championship if things are not changed and their season does not start picking up.
Allardyce believes he has the backing of the board and also the fans but this supposed backing from the fans is hard to believe as no fan wants to see their team -who were always consistent and capable of making the top 10 in the Premier League year after year- drop in to the relegation zone and constantly lose games that they should be winning.
West Ham as a club are disappearing immensely and their season became even more embarrassing which each passing week. They were thrashed 5-0 by Championship side Nottingham Forest and knocked out of the FA Cup and then they were hammered 6-0 by Manchester City, along with many other losses during the season.
Within three days they conceded 11 goals and didn't manage to score one goal, despite beating Cardiff City 2-0 on January 11, seven days later they were back to losing ways, losing 3-1 at home to Newcastle.
Allardyce claims that a long list of key players' injuries have not helped in their cause to remain above the relegation zone, however every team in the league has injury problems but they learn to work as a team with the players they have available as and when they can play.
After the win against Cardiff, Allardyce stated that he had the support of owners David Gold and David Sullivan, but it remains to be seen how far their support will go.
If the club fail to turn their fortunes around then not only does it look like they are resigned to the Championship for next season, but Big Same could quite easily be out of a job as well.
