Not often do you get booed off the field when your team has just collected a win.
But that was exactly what happened to West Ham manager Sam Allardyce after their 2-1 victory over 10-man Hull City last Wednesday.
The win puts the Hammers in mid-table, with considerable distance separating them from the drop zone
Thankfully chairman David Gold sees it that way, and has used social media platform twitter to calm down the boo-boys. His tweet and the best responses can be seen here…
You certainly have the right to boo but does it help motivate the players? Has it ever helped snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. dg

@davidgold Sam has the right to play rubbish football but does it motivate the fans? Since Sams been here the atmosphere at home is poor

@davidgold keeping Sam is a pragmatic business decision. Stay up, more money; meanwhile the culture, history & soul of the place drains away
