West Bromwich Albion manager Sam Allardyce has admitted things have not gone to plan for him since taking over as manager of the Baggies.
Allardyce was brought in to replace Slaven Bilic in December, but he failed to get the Hawthorns outfit out of trouble. Since he arrived, they have won just one match, albeit against local rivals Wolves (BBC), and they are now 11 points adrift of safety with just 15 matches left to play (Sky Sports).
Speaking ahead of his side’s clash with Manchester United, Allardyce said that nothing is working for him in his new job despite him trying a number of different players and systems (Joseph Masi).
Should Allardyce be sacked?
This has attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters, and some have implored to try a more attacking outlook to at least go down in style. The fans took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the comments from Allardyce below
“Just go all out attack. We ain’t staying up. Might aswel go out punching”
“He’s worse than i thought he was going to be. And that was awful”
“How many more things can be blame?”
“Not that we have noticed sam I shouldn’t worry”
“He can try a million different systems but if the players are not buying into his ideas and systems then Big Sam is hitting a brick wall”
“Might as well take off the shackles and let them attack now. Just have a go. Better to lose that way than cowering in our own area just waiting for the inevitable.”
In other news, West Brom fans are delighted with this contract news.
