The thought of him still being here next week makes me sick

How about finish 8th, miss out on 7th by goal difference,  and Allardyce leaves with his nice little bonus less than 10 minutes after the last game of the season

Merry summer

I'd take 10th and him gone. Shove it up your shitter if you think that makes me a poor fan. I think you're a poor fan accepting Allardyce as our manager.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, we were never in danger of going down, yes we were awful but any half decent manager would be able to do what Allardyce has done since he took over.

What we need is a quality manager to come in and start again from scratch, an ambitious manager who will help us close the gap on the top 6 then top 4 and not someone who is happy with mid table mediocrity

Ok, I think it was 19th before the Watford game.

It would appear we were 16th after the Southampton defeat - 2 points off the drop zone, 4 points off the bottom - when we brought in Allardyce (he was already in before the West Ham game). I can't remember when we announced it, but we started that match in 17th place. So not 19th, but I'd hardly say it's a decent position or not near the bottom.

Unsworth was manager when we played West Ham, we were 13th when Allardyce took over

Yeah, but we'd signed Allardyce before then, hadn't we? I'm not one of those that counts the West Ham win as one for Allardyce, but he was certainly at the club before the match.

He was announced a few hours before the match

So yeah, we were 17th when he joined. Which in my book is 'near the bottom'. Maybe if we'd have waited until after that match, the board may have thought differently. But we were in horrendous shape at the time, hence they went for Allardyce. Given the dearth of options at the time, I'm not sure who else they could've brought in that would've 'guaranteed' safety.

We were 13th when he took over, not 17th

ffs tell me when we went looking a new manager were we 13th

stop with the trying to make it look better than it was you talking to people that seen how bad it was

Allardyce took over as manager when we were 13th in the league, what part of that do you not understand?

If we do finish 7th and end up in Europe then it just re confirms how poor the premier league has become
