Sam Allardyce has earned a new contract at West Ham

Published 2 Comments

October’s Premier League manager of the month, Sam Allardyce, has led West Ham to an outstanding start to the campaign and has surely earned himself a new contract.

The east London outfit are sitting pretty in a Champions League position after eleven games and have beaten the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.

More importantly, though, the team is now playing the ‘West Ham way’ thanks to the summer additions and boast one of the best squads Upton Park has seen in many years.

Major improvement

Not only has Allardyce bought well in the summer he has also changed the atmosphere around the club and it seems that all the players are happy and hungry for success.

It’s amazing how much of an impact a few quality additions can have on a side, this Hammers team are playing in a manner almost unrecognisable to last term.

Allardyce has strengthened the areas that needed addressing, jigged with the formation to complement his best players and is continuing to silence the critics that had previously condemned him.

Stability is key

With a content squad that is playing well and working hard for the man in charge it would seem silly for the Irons board to replace Allardyce, who is in the last six months of his contract.

It says a lot about modern football that Big Sam is in the top three longest serving Premier league managers, clubs such as Fulham who seem to constantly change managers have suffered for it, West Ham don’t want to go down that road.

Now Allardyce has assembled a strong squad and has got them playing the way he wants to, which is getting results at present, he surely deserves a contract extension.

European place achievable

It is stated that the season objectives for the club are a top-ten finish, playing attacking, aesthetically pleasing football. Allardyce has got them on course but he of all people will know how quickly things can change in football. It only takes a bad run of matches and he could find himself under increasing pressure.

However the quality throughout the squad and the amount of goals they are scoring is a sure sign that they are capable of exceeding expectations.

They will have some tough competition but if they keep playing the way they are they could well find themselves in a Europa League place come May, which will not only warrant Allardyce a new contract but possibly a call from the FA, so West Ham may want to tie him down before it’s too late.
