Canít see him going anywhere but I can imagine thereís a clause in his contract that triggers an extension if he gets us into Europe this season.

Oh here we go again giving Allardyce praise for the West Ham game despite the rotund narcissist even admitting himself it was nothing to do with him and the fact heíd not taken a training season or picked the team or even signed a contract with the club.

Personally I prefer to give Unsworth credit for the Huddersfield result as Allardyce only had a day with the players prior to that and he didnít even change the team Unsworth picked to destroy West Ham 3 days earlier.

You're an arrogant prick, aren't you? It's not my fault you're choosing to misrepresent what I'm saying.

I said we were 19th, which I have since corrected. That's where we were before the Watford game.

However, as Macca said, we agreed to sign him before the West Ham match - it was announced officially afterwards. My comments were based on our position before that match that led us to bring him in - after the games on the Tuesday night, we were 17th. What's your point?

No need to be abusive, you were wrong I simply pointed you towards the correct information. A thank you would have been nice though obviously.

In future though please try and post the correct information and facts it saves all the nastiness.

Pedantic on here sometimes innit.

We all know the decision was taken to appoint him as manager before the West Ham game. So yeah we were 17th at the time.

Must have been a difficult decision to make, but I'd rather go through a season of this than be the next Leeds United and disappear into the abyss of the lower leagues. The guarantee of not going down was well worth the £6mil in the grand scheme of things.

We were looking at managers from the day Koeman was sacked, either getting knocked back by clubs or failing to entice others.

The fact is when Allardyce walked in we werenít 19th or 17th we were in fact 13th after a decent league run and our form had steadied out.

Yeah ok. But we were 17th when the board were trying to appoint him, which is the point that's trying to be made, is it not?

He was appointed after the round 14 games, after the round 13 games we sat 16th.

Again the point is he walked into a favourable position with things on the up,  all though for some desperate reason people are trying to make out we were practically done for to try and make his time here look more than simply adequate.

If it's ok with you, I'll take my credibility lessons from someone who hasn't spent 17000 posts blindly defending Roberto Martinez.

Haha hardly.

Yeah I did back Martinez, but you know what Iíd much rather watch us under him than Allardyce. I liked watching us get a record premier league haul, reach two semi finals in one season, not capitulate in Europe, attract and play some of Europeís brightest talent here, promoting our own youth players and giving them a chance.   

All that said and done he got his fair share of criticism off me during his time, but it sure as hell beats watching us got to Arsenal with a tub of KY in our hand or line up with a back five and two defensive mids against the bottom of the league in my book.

I loved him - as a keen Hispanist, I loved all the 'sin miedo' and 'solo lo mejor' stuff. And the first season was great.

But we'd be in the Championship if he'd have still been here. And you could even argue that despite bringing in the very talented young players, he's the biggest reason they moved on, because he actually took the club backwards during his time here.

Please donít try and derail the thread with another Martinez bashing session.
