Sam Allardyce: Disappointed with West Ham's recent results

Sam Allardyce: Disappointed with West Ham's recent results

Allardyce and the club have always maintained a new deal is on the cards but will not be rubber-stamped until another season of top-flight football is guaranteed.

And, according to the manager, whose current deal expires in the summer, it will take five more points before both parties are happy relegation is no longer a real threat.

He said: "I want us to get safe and then if the contract's already there and ready to sign, I'll sign it, move on and get ready for next season.

"I'm not so sure we have to wait until we're mathermatically safe. I think if we get to 38 points both parties would say that's going to be enough this season.

"Hopefully we can get to 38 points as quickly as we can, then we'll have a few games left to achieve more than 40 points if we can."

West Ham have won just twice in nine league games, and Allardyce said: "It's been a little disappointing recently, not from a contract point of view but from a results point of view.

"I'm disappointed we haven't already clinched safety because I think we should have done based on our performances.

"Our lack of concentration and, on some occasions, our lack of goals has made us linger on this subject.

"We all want to get it out of the way, done and dusted and focus on hopefully another season in the Premier League."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
