West Ham boss Sam Allardyce says he could face the sack

Sam Allardyce’s West Ham side was beaten 5-0 by Championship side Nottingham Forest and says he needs to start getting results or he could get the chop, according to The Mirror.

After labelling the game a “total disaster”, Big Sam says that he had boardroom backing to field kids but is now under pressure after the 5-0 FA Cup humiliation to Nottingham Forest.

West Ham made nine changes including debuts to three youngsters, but were deservedly thrashed after a well taken 2nd half hat-trick by Jamie Paterson.

The Hammers have now only won one game in the last nine and are languishing at 19th place in the Premier League.

However Allardyce claimed that he had “no choice” with the first leg of the semi-final Capital One Cup clash with Manchester United this coming Wednesday.

Then his side visit Cardiff on Saturday with several key members injured.

He added, “It’s a disaster at the moment, a total disaster and in certain areas we’ve not been able to cope.

“My hands are tied behind my back every time I see what’s available and the team is almost picking itself.

“You know what my priorities are: the priorities are the Premier League first and then Capital One Cup.”

When prompted whether the result would have any repercussions on his job, he replied, “There might be, who knows? It’s their decision, not mine.

“I’m not saying it won’t happen unless I start to get results. I have got to get results, I know that.

“I picked the team so it is my responsibility.”
