How do you/we know what formation they are comfortable with?

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce insists he still has support from fans

SAM ALLARDYCE claims he still has the support of most West Ham fans.

By Paul Brown/Published 8th January 2014



The under-pressure Hammers boss (right) takes his side to Manchester City in the Capital One Cup semi-finals tonight.

But despite growing calls for his head from the West Ham faithful, Allardyce is convinced only a few want him out.

He said: "Most of the fans I meet are very positive.

They are not the minority who show their disapproval.

Yes, but close to a "representative" sample (granted, internet voting tends to be somewhat/rather biased even with high voting numbers). Almost 1200 votes so far...and counting.

No it isn't but its a poll of over a thousand people and until l meet someone that has conducted a survey involving more west ham fans then for me that poll is is the most accurate gauge we have.

I voted for him to stay. But wait and see what happens tonight and Saturday. I think if we lose on Saturday, with Noble and Carroll (potentially) back, he'll be running out of excuses. I know the centre halves are playing out of position but they've had time to play together and I really don't buy Diarra playing there (and hence losing another midfielder), seems to be doing more harm than good. So I want him to stay, but it could change very quickly if things don't look to be improving.

Hmm, that's interesting as Curbishley once mentioned getting c*nted off in the street and he's was trying to fix Pardew's mess at the time.

If you read the comments of people who have voted for him, I would not say this poll is a ringing endorsement of support..

Most have reluctantly voted to keep him in.. To me that is not support..

You could say that both ways - some that vote to get rid may have been reluctant in doing so.

The poll is clear and fair - this forum marginally supports him.

No it's not.

Those that voted No were unanimous in wanting him gone now.

A lot of people who voted yes have been saying "I just can't think of anyone else, so I voted yes."....

I reluctantly voted no... If I thought Sam could keep us up even by goal difference I'd keep him to build in the summer and for stability. But I think we need change to give ourselves a chance of survival, so reluctantly, I'm a no.

Absolute rubbish - which doesn't surprise me given your recent posting spout.

You have NO idea what is in the minds of any of the voters, other than your own and those that you ask.

It's a simple yes or no. Inevitably you will get those on the fence that go one way or the other. It works both ways.

It's a simple, fair poll, with a clear result - marginal support for Sam.

I am sure you'll respond to this post by repeating yourself - so that's all I have to say on it, I won't repeat it again.

I'm talking about actual support of the manager!

I've excepted that the majority don't want to sack him... but when people say they only want to keep him because they can't think of anyone better.. I don't call that support...

Both ways?? Show me the other side, where people have voted him out that actually support him..

I disagree.

Given the fact we are out of the FA Cup and second bottom of the division , I would suggest this forum is offering full support .
