Fans of West Bromwich Albion have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed Sam Allardyce’s post-match comments following the club’s 3-0 loss to Aston Villa.
Having sacked Slaven Bilic, who left the club sitting in 19th place in the Premier League table having picked up just seven points from their opening 13 league matches, the Baggies made the decision to appoint Allardyce as their new manager, with the fact the 66-year-old has never been relegated from the top flight undoubtedly being a major factor in his installation at the club.
However, things did not get off to the best of starts for the former England boss, as he saw his West Brom side succumb to a 3-0 home defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday.
And, after the match, Allardyce stated his belief that the Baggies are a side who ‘are going to have to battle’ their way through the rest of the season if they are to avoid a swift return back to the Championship, however, it would seem that his comments have not gone down too well with many of the West Brom supporters.
Do you think Allardyce will keep West Brom up?
So, what exactly did these West Bromwich Albion fans have to say in reaction to Sam Allardyce’s post-match comments?
Here we go 🙄 I’d much rather stick to Slav’s principles have a tight nit dressing room and a proper group of players who respect the gaffer than bin those principles and hoof it up to Andy Carrol. The performance against City was much better than tonight #LaiOut

Allardyce can do one. If we lose the next 3 he should be sacked because we will be down. A regression from Tuesday night and he offered nothing to change it in the second half

Battle our way out 😂
Roll on next season, back to the championship and Big Sam gone

Woeful. Uninspiring leader. Just desperate that it’s come to this. A manager no one believes in.

I feel like the club I used to love is dead.
