Sam Allardyce to be appointed new West Ham manager. Did this video get him the job?
Big Sam’s West Ham
West Ham have reportedly agreed to make Sam Allardyce their new manager.
He is set to take control of the club when he returns from his holiday. The ex-Blackburn, Newcastle and Bolton boss is expected to sign a three-year deal with the Hammers.
There has been a lot of talk about whether Allardyce is capable of getting a team to play ‘the West Ham way’. That immediately brought to mind this video in which he berates his wingers for playing on the wing.
We hope David Sullivan and David Gold know that this footage was taken at an open training session and that they don’t think that Allardyce’s training via tannoy technique is the solution to the lack of communication that blighted Avram Grant’s tenure!
