Allardyce has no intention of quitting West Ham

Sam Allardyce has insisted he will not quit West Ham in the aftermath of the Hammers’ 6-0 defeat by Manchester City in the Capital One Cup semi-final first-leg, ESPN has reported.

West Ham are currently second bottom of the Premier League and were eliminated from the FA Cup on Sunday following a 5-0 defeat by Championship side Nottingham Forest, but despite growing supporter unrest, Allardyce made clear he would not walk away from Upton Park.


There are times when it is good and there are times when it is not so good,” Allardyce said. “You have to accept that when it is not so good, you have to draw on your strengths and experience to guide the players through this difficult time we are facing.


At the end of the day, we cannot keep walking around with our heads down in doom and gloom,” the former Blackburn boss continued. “We have to get our heads up and our shoulders back and our chest out and start believing that we are going to do better.


Allardyce also deflected the criticism from supporters, saying it is to be expected when results are not positive. “It is life when you are not doing well you get stick as a manager and I am getting stick at the moment,” he added. “That is the way goes: you take it on the chin and get on with it.


You can understand it when they travel all this way and the team gets beaten heavily that they are going to give you some criticism but we are not the first team to get beat here by many, many goals and we won't be the last.


Allardyce pointed to the extensive injury list at the club that has seen his three first choice centre-backs - James Tomkins, James Collins and Winston Reid - all face spells on the sidelines, while club record signing Andy Carroll has yet to play this season.
