West Ham United hasn’t had that much success under Sam Allardyce in the ongoing season, but, the club board still has got full faith in the manager.
The board released a letter for the supporters on the Hammers’ website yesterday and in that letter, it has clearly supported the boss.
West Ham currently finds itself in the relegation zone of the league table. They have won only 3 out of their 20 league matches in the season and in terms of points, they are not too far ahead of Sunderland which is the bottom placed team in the table.
It’s not only in the league that the Hammers have performed badly; they have put up similar sort of performances in the matches of other competitions as well. In their FA Cup third round game against Nottingham Forest the other day, they suffered a 0-5 defeat which was quite humiliating. With that defeat, they were knocked out of the cup.
The West Ham fans are disappointed with how their team has played in this season and some of them are even angry. They want changes to be made, both in the management and in the squad.
That letter by the board must have given the Hammers boss a bit of confidence, but, he should know that if his team keeps performing the way they performed against Forest, the board would run out of patience at some point of time.
The upcoming couple of games aren’t easy for West Ham United by any stretch of imagination. They will be facing one of the strongest Premier League sides Manchester City on Wednesday and then, a couple of days later, they will be up against Cardiff City which has performed quite well in the recent times.
