Allardyce: Surely West Ham fans can have no complaints with this season

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce doesn't believe that the club's supporters have any reason to complain about this campaign.

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has told the London Evening Standard that supporters can have no complaints about this season.

The Hammers may have been off form since the turn of the year, but Allardyce thinks that he has still met the requirements of the club.

He says that the attacking performances that West Ham have put in this season should have appeased supporters' concerns and insists that the mood around the Boleyn Ground should be a positive one.

"I’ve been told since 2011 that performances are, if not as important, then almost as important as results," he said. "If that is true, surely there can be no complaints with what we’ve done this season. Surely no one can complain about the performance at Leicester for example - we had more than enough chances to win that game but we lost 2-1."

It is true that West Ham fans have asked Allardyce to play with a more expansive style, but their sequence of poor results means that the Boleyn Ground isn't a particularly happy place at the moment.

Hammers supporters have seen their side go from pushing for a European place to fighting to stay in the top-half, and there has been a lot of disappointment expressed at their slump.

It leaves Allardyce's future at the club looking insecure, with his contract set to expire in the summer.

The Hammers have still not offered Allardyce an extension to his current deal and it remains to be seen whether he will still be in charge next season.
