The fans at Upton Park are becoming restless as the Hammers are now second bottom of the Premier League having picked up one point from a possible 15 in December.
West Ham have had a worse first half of the season than the last time they were relegated under the ‘guidance’ of Avram Grant.
But despite the negativity surrounding the club at present, owners David Gold and David Sullivan are refusing to pull the trigger after Allardyce has improved the club in recent seasons.
The absence of club record signing Andy Carroll has been evident with goals a real issue and other injuries to key players such as Winston Reid and Stewart Downing have stretched the Hammers’ squad.
If West Brom win at Upton Park in tomorrow’s lunchtime game, the pressure on Allardyce and the board will be immense especially with recent sackings of sides above the Hammers that has heeded an improvement.
