It's not clear from Allardyce's words on whether the agents approached him after speaking with the players and getting the green light to proceed or not, although you would be surprised it that wasn't the case.
If that is indeed the case, and it can be read that way, then to have your captain and vice captain wanting to leave doesn't send a great signal. I'm guessing West Ham were one of the clubs in for at least one of those players mentioned.

Another question might be:

Is it better to play half an hour 15 times against top flight opposition or to play 90 minutes 15 times against worse defences?

Pros and cons to each, obviously.

The top of the championship isn't exactly Sunday league defending.

I just think we massively fucked up this part of his development. After 6 months last season at this level, where it was quickly evident he was out of his depth, he should have been despatched off to someone like Derby for the full season like Dowell has done.
