Hammers Hope Allardyce Has The Right Tools

This is a ball lads, it is what you kick.
Sam Allardycde has taken over as manager of West Ham following their relegation to the Championship. He will take over from Avram Grant who was sacked after his second relegation in as many years. Sam Allardyce was relieved of his dutys for Blackburn in December who then appointed Steve Keen, who has only just managed to save Blackburn from relegation, something Allardyce was in the position to do anyway.

The first challenge for Allardyce will be to make sure West Ham keep as manay of their stars as possible with it being expected that numerous players will leave such as; Scott Parker, Rob Green, Mathew Upson and Carlton Cole, all important players in the West Ham squad.

West Ham are due to move in to the Olympic Stadium after next season and the West Ham directors including Alan Sugars aide, Karen Brady, have set Allardyce the challenge of returning West Ham to the premier league in time to fit in with the move to the new stadium.

It is believed that Allardyce wants to sign several players for West Ham to ensure they gain promotion at first attempt.

"It's a fantastic club with a great tradition and loyal supporters," said 56-year-old Allardyce.
"I wouldn't have taken this job if I didn't think we could bounce straight back into the Premier League."

"I couldn't have contemplated the job if I didn't think there was the opportunity to build something substantial at West Ham," he added.
