West Ham United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern all seem to agree that Sam Allardyce is not only under pressure to deliver better results this season but a more attractive style of football to boot!
Hammers supporters were not happy with the long ball style of play at Upton Park last season, so much so that there was an occasion when the players were booed off – despite a 2-1 win over Hull City.
But here, we have evidence to suggest the Hammers have got it in them to produce some attractive football, with Ravel Morrison, Alex Song and Diafro Sakho combining to score this magnificent team goal for the Under-21’s against Ipswich Town.
Yes, we know Allardyce was not in charge for this game.
But at least three potential first team stars have demonstrated what they can do if given the freedom.
