Shearer was agreeing with the majority of fans who want him out, basically said Allardyce has had us over a barrell
This couldn't be further from the truth! Yeah, he said Allardyce had us over a barrel, but having shown a stat to say that we have 33 points since he joined (6th in the league), he said:
- He's got every right to be miffed.
- He wasn't their first choice but Sam had them over a barrel because they were desperate, in a desperate situation.
- But when you look at the clubs who have changed managers because they're in the mire, there are a lot of them still there.
- If he'd have signed a contract to the end of the season, everyone would've said what a brilliant job he's done.
- But if the fans have their way, he won't be there next season.
As I feel I have to say in every post, none of us wants Allardyce here next season. But the job he's done seems to be praised by most people outside the club.
