West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has admitted that he understands the fans’ frustration after a third consecutive defeat, as reported by Goal.com

The Hammers were beaten at home by improving Crystal Palace and were booed off at full time, with chants of ‘you don’t know what you’re doing’ ringing around the ground.

The relationship between Allardyce and the Upton Park crowd has been tense all season long and many are now calling for his head after another lifeless, effortless display at home.

The former Newcastle and Bolton boss understands why the fans react the way they do though, and is hoping that decisions can go for them in future games.

“I always have sympathy [with the fans] by the fact is that I’m as frustrated as they are and I don’t want to see my team lose, particularly when we’re playing at home,” said Allardyce.

“Our finishing failed us. Perhaps the referee failed us on the Andy Carroll foul. In the end, Pablo [Armero] shouldn’t have given the penalty away, it was a silly challenge, and we paid a high price for that.”
