Soccer – Allardyce happy to bide his time
Sam Allardyce is adamant that he is content at West Ham United as speculation about his future at the club intensifies. It has been suggested that the former Blackburn and Bolton boss will leave the Hammers at the end of this season when his contract expires. West Ham are on course to finish in mid-table this term but suffered a setback last weekend when they lost 4-0 to West Brom in the fifth round of the FA Cup. They will hope to bounce back when they face a Tottenham side this weekend that they completed the double over last season. Allardyce said: “It was the same when my contract ran out last time, I waited until the end of the season. We stayed in the Premier League then and it will be the same this time. We all understand the situation internally, which is the most important thing.” West Ham are 15/4 with bet365 to pick up three points at White Hart Lane on Sunday and can be backed at 9/2 to keep a clean sheet in the game.
