To think Salah , Firmino and Mane all cost less than Sigurdsson .
But you know, PL proven and all that...

I don't think The Big Man , The Boss , Big Sam could conjure a goal out of the 3 of them though .

Maybe that’s because they don’t have a highly paid D.O.F ?

We need rid of him and the rest of the shit. If, and it's a massive if, we are to attract the quality of player to drive us forward, we need a manager who will attract them. Because the club s reputation surely won't .
Money alone will not change this, we need to change the whole attitude and ethos off the club.
Fuck being nice, we need to show ambition, pride and determination, all sadly lacking with most of these players, and it seems the coaches and manager.

This cunt will also oversee the lowest points total in 14 years. We won't won't finish above the 47 points Martinez finished in his last two seasons.

Interesting that the handful of Allardyce apologists that are left have coincidentally found themselves too busy doing other things since last night to come on here and stick up for him.

I can't see much of an arguement left for keeping him anyway.

Not sure how the Allardyce defenders can defend these stats. Truly is Walter Smith-esque. Dark days.

Unsworth did a shambolic job all be it short term and in testing circumstances. I genuinely can't believe anyone still thinks he's the answer

I would be delighted if Sam was shown the door and we gave it to Unsworth for the rest of the season. We need to take stock and stop demoralising the players. Sam is blaming everybody but himself.

I wish I had your confidence.

I reckon this whole dreamteam of Allardyce, Walsh et al will still be here at the start of next season as well.

Holgate, Lookman, and Vlasic won’t, but a new batch of overpriced 27-30 year-old journeyman will be, though.

Fucking grim.

Ok, I'll bite.

If by apologist you mean someone who doesn't:

- begrudge the points we actually did win when Allardyce first joined (and I don't include West Ham);
- start calling for his resignation the second he lost his first match;
- use every word he says as a knife to stab him with;
- go around calling him Big Fat Gravy-Swigging Sam....

then yes, that's me. Just because you don't yield to the mob mentality, doesn't mean you think the sun shines out of his arse.

I think you'll find that most of the so-called Allardyce apologists have said that if he gets the team playing decent football - and more importantly winning - then he will have earned the right to stay on a bit longer. Which, objectively, whether you like him or not is the fair thing to do. If we're doing well, there's no point sacking the manager unless an obviously better, more suitable for the long-term manager becomes available.

Clearly, however, we're not playing well and nor are the results particularly great, so you would hope the board are looking at potential replacements (as they should always be - although I just don't think they are). As such, if performances/results continue (and for a manager who is so into stats, that Matt Cheetham post should be startling), we should get rid. Simple as that.

Is there any difference in results when you compare unsworth and allardyce?
