|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
Sometime next week I'll be sitting down for a chat with West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce for the latest in our series of KUMB Q&A sessions.
If anyone has a (sensible) question they'd like me to put to Sam, please add below.
I read something years ago, and don’t know if it’s true but supposedly Sam said before that the hardest thing he’s had to do in his managerial career so far was go around door to door in certain parts of Limerick City trying to fund raise for the club. I’d love to know if that’s actually true or just an urban myth.
You obviously don’t have to ask this as it has nothing to do with WH but it was always something that stuck with me through the years about Sam, especially as I went to school there and know how rough the area is.

A few to start with...
Last season when we looked like we could push on and win the league, why did he continue to go defensive and ultimately end up putting us in the play off places? is this something that we will see again this year even at 0-0 draws at home?
May not be the ultimate question for some of you lot now that we have reached the holy land of the premiership, but ****ing pissed me off last season, especially away from home.
