WEST HAM BATTLE IT OUT
West Ham United entered the Premier League in 2014 battling it out in the bottom spots of the league but after a number of positive results in February, Sam Allardyce and his squad have been able to climb higher and are relatively safe from the bottom danger zone.
Hull City travelled to the Boleyn Ground to face off against West Ham United and a 2nd half own goal from James Chester gave Sam Allardyce’s side the victory but even though the home team came out with a positive result Allardyce received boo’s from the club fans in the stadium.
“I’ve never been a place where I won and got booed. I started playing at 16, got into the first team at 18 and I’m 59 now and I have never been in a place where we have won and got booed’’.
“At halftime players were talking more about fans booing them than the game. Fans affect players. We don’t need them on the players’ backs when we are coming off three defeats. They have to stay and help them win’’. Allardyce revealed.
It seems as if the relationship that the English manager has with the club fans is reaching a new low after the consistent series of negative results which led to West Ham United having been located in the relegation zone of the Premier League for a significant amount of time and it isn’t until now that they have been able to leap a few spots.
Andy Carroll’s absence during the beginning of the Premier League was felt by the team as they needed a player that could boost their goals tally and improve the attacking department of the club and rumors are starting to spread around involving Dirk Kuyt as the Dutch forward is being taken into consideration as a possible new arrival to West Ham United in the summer.
