Sam understands fans' anger

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce admitted he could understand the frustration of the Upton Park fans after their poor form continued in a 0-0 home draw with Sunderland.

The Hammers looked to have turned the corner on their own turf after comfortably beating Fulham last time out.

However, after another below-par attacking display, the Upton Park faithful let their feelings be known at the final whistle, with the players exiting to a chorus of boos.

And Allardyce knows where the supporters are coming from, and believes the fans are right to vent their frustrations.

"It doesn't make it easier for me, but it is part of the job," he told Sky Sports.

"You sit there and you expect that reaction when your team doesn't perform.

"We didn't entertain them and, more importantly at the moment, we didn't win."

Allardyce, who celebrated his 100th league game in charge of the Hammers, has seen side win only two of their last 15 league games, and knows things must improve quickly, and return to the form his side showed against Fulham.

"We didn't do what we did against against Fulham, which was a brilliant game," he added.

"Today dogged hard work was the order of the day, and we didn't deserve more than a draw."

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.
