Hammers co-chairman David Gold said earlier this week the manager will have to wait until the end of the season to discuss a new contract, with his current deal set to expire in the summer.

The club are on a disappointing run, having won two in their last 12, but remain 11th in the Premier League standings.

Allardyce, who guided the Londoners to promotion from the Championship last season, insists there is no problem over his position at the club.

The 58-year-old is not expecting any knee-jerk reaction from the club's owners despite their current rough patch.

He told The Sun: "There's no problem. We'll talk once our Prem status is secure.

"Some owners pull the trigger early but it is not like that here."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
