Steve Madeley (The Athletic) has hinted that Sam Allardyce may only have five games to turn around West Bromwich Albion’s fortunes – otherwise, he faces the sack.
On Sunday, the Baggies were defeated 2-0 by Tottenham. The result sees them remain in 19th place in the Premier League table, 11 points adrift of safety (Sky Sports). Since Allardyce took over from former manager Slaven Bilic, the Midlands outfit have won just one from 11 matches (BBC).
West Brom’s next five opponents are Manchester City, Burnley, Brighton, Newcastle and Crystal Palace. Given that four from those five sides are in the bottom half, the Baggies must pick up a good haul of points to give themselves any chance of staying amongst the elite.
Should Allardyce be sacked?
The fans reacted in their droves to Madeley’s update, which he shared on Twitter, and they took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Allardyce news below
“Omg 5 games surely he goes now”
“we don’t have that time”
“Pointless paying out another manager”
“Might as well do it today then and get someone in who will buy into a 5 year plan on getting back up within 2 years and stable in the premier by the 5th year. It was done previously and could be done again with the right person. Not sure who but hopefully someone with ambition”
“He needs to go, bring in mozza and brunty until Michael Appleton can come in next season.”
“Just get rid of him now to be honest. We bottled the two six pointers, we’re gone and there’s no progress under him. Dropping Pereira yesterday shows we’re not in good hands whatsoever under this guy.”
In other news, West Brom fans slam this man against Spurs.
