It appears that West Ham will stick to their guns and maintain Sam Allardyce on the back of two heavy defeats at the hands of Nottingham Forest.
After being hammered 5-0 at the hands of Forest in the FA Cup and then falling victim to a 6-0 thumping at the courtesy of Manchester City, fans have been calling for change as the side also find themselves in a relegation dogfight as they occupy 19th position.
With the short-term future of the club looking bleak fans are calling for the board to take action and seek replacement that can keep West Ham up. The Hammers have leaked a staggering 22 goals in just five games.
Even the most stubbon of West Ham fan knows they won't be heading to Wembley this season for a Capital One Cup final. The manager made a number of changes to the side that were torn apart by Nottingham Forest for the City game but has nothing to show for his efforts.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5Live former West Ham favourite Julian Dicks can't blame the fans at voicing their disapproval towards the manager.
Dicks said: "I can't [see how Allardyce can continue]. How can you? The football isn't good, the lack of passion and pride is awful. I understand where fans are coming from."
West Ham face a rejuvenated Cardiff side who are under new management. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has enjoyed a winning start in Wales who like West Ham are fighting for their lives.
Some sections of the West Ham fans are calling for the board to bring in former Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay but the board are still showing faith in Allardyce.
David Gold and David Sullivan issued a statement regarding the future of their manager and are right behind him. The letter stated: "We know Sam has not lost his ambition or desire and is committed to making West Ham United a great Premier League club."
It seems as if the club has made up their mind, it looks like the fans have no choice but to back 'Big Sam'.
