    Allardyce talks Hoofball (brighton reference)

    Sam Allardyce: There have been times when West Ham have played like Swansea | Mail Online

    Earlier in the season, the Brighton fans shouted ‘hoof’ throughout the game because of the long balls.

    SA: ‘We didn’t hoof it. We sat in and played on the break, won 1-0, did them tactically. So when Gus Poyet criticises us, he’s done well. Fabulous. Let’s see him in 20 years.’

    Perfect. All set up for us to OUTCLASS them in the Playoff final now. Can't wait.

    "Let's see him in 20 years"?! Hahaaa. That's up there with his comments about managing Real Madrid. He really is one of the biggest wankers in football.

    You have to admire his balls really.

    For someone who is so universally derided in footballing circles, he's got some front.

    The truth.

    They DID do us, can't argue with that. What did we have, one great shot by Noone at the end of the 1st half? Other than that did their keeper even have to make a save?

    We regularly sit on 1-0s so can hardly complain when it happens to us

    **** Sam Allardyce. The only thing i enjoy about him is his twitter page and it's not even him.

    The Albion to do West Ham at Wembley on May the 19th. That would be epic.

    He's not wrong though, they did tactically beat us.

    Plus his team is higher paid and cost a ****load more to put together.

    But he is right.

    Am I wrong in thinking that Bridcutt slipped allowing the ball through to Nolan or was that another game. If I'm right that's hardly "doing" us tactically, that's more like a big slice of luck.
    I will not make any deals with you. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own,

    Yep but then they sat back and we were clueless how to break them down. We sitback on similar scores, Forest most recently?

    Yeah but if it wasn't for an UNFORCED error by one of our players, it would've been a 0-0 draw that we dominated.

    Hardly "doing us tactically", is it? Pretty pathetic infact for a team of their stature.

    I'm not sure about the tactically !doing us', it wasn't exactly tactically superior to bury 11 men behind the ball after getting a somewhat lucky goal (error by bridcutt leaving harper out of position), it then became about whether the our players could break them down. Not exactly tactical oneupmanship. But my issue with that comment is more that elsewhere in the article he bemoans the teams that come to west ham and try to stifle the game, which is exactly what he did at brighton.

    Pretty pleased with how the team has developed and improved since that game at the Amex. We've come a long way, baby

    We "sat back" for the whole of the Forest game and didn't deserve much. Not just after Vokes scored!

    A big slice of luck, that we were always going to serve up to them.

    From memory I think that was our worst performance at home, because at no point (not even 20 mins at the start a la Palace) did we show up.

    We were immobile, clueless, and headless.

    I don't mind losing but not like that.

    The money West Ham have spent - they should get the better of us. They must be the best paid squad in the division. Is Fat Sam making the most of his players ? Clearly not. Is he keeping the supporters happy ? No.

    It will be great if they end up in the play-offs.

    They did do us. They were much better, nicked a goal and sat back. But I'm not sure that he has the right to criticise Gus's potential as a manager. In fact I don't remember Gus saying a bad word about West Ham except that they are a 'Premiership Club' and played as such.

    Just seems a bit of an unnecessary thing to say to me.
