Danny Murphy: West Ham have already made their minds up over Allardyce

Upton Park

Former England midfielder Danny Murphy has suggested that West Ham United have already decided the future of Sam Allardyce.

Former Liverpool and Spurs midfielder Danny Murphy told talkSPORT yesterday that he feels West Ham United have already made their minds up over Sam Allardyce.

Murphy has suggested that the current Hammers boss won’t get a new contract, with his current deal due to expire at the end of the season.

“I think West Ham have already made their mind up with him (Allardyce) – I just think if they were going to offer him something, they would have done it by now,” said Murphy.

West Ham enjoyed a great first half to the season with Allardyce and looked as though they would be a top six side for most of the season.

However, since the turn of the year they have struggled and have slowly fallen down the table, which has left Allardyce under pressure and plenty of fans questioning whether he’s the man who will take the team forward.

Allardyce still has time to convince the officials at Upton Park that he should be the man to guide the side towards their Olympic Stadium adventure.

The Hammers still have a good chance of a place in the top eight, which would represent a solid season for the club.

West Ham are currently tenth in the table, three points away from Swansea in eighth who they will be looking to overtake this weekend.
