As if the performance itself wasn't sickening enough, the sight of Allardyce laughing in the post match press conference really twisted the knife in the guts. When pressed on the unhappiness of the fans, Allardyce had the audacity to laugh and tell the journalist that he had just won him 150 quid by leading with that question.
Laugh? How dare he! Mock the fans who vented their understandable anger following a second thrashing in a week? That is beneath contempt.
In fact, the guy seemed to have no concept whatsoever of the pain that the shameful performance had generated. He was smugness personified as he said that West Ham "weren't the first team to be heavily beaten at Manchester City this season" and "wouldn't be the last". Well I will correct him there, because we go to the Etihad on the final day of the season, so I would put my mortgage on us being the last!
What was missing from the post match press conference? Try humility. Then add remorse. Then add empathy. Then add respect. Then add personal culpability. The fat bastard might as well have said on camera, "West Ham fans? I piss on them from a great height."
I have not called for his head until this week but enough is enough. The brash contempt with which he sweeps away all criticism is revolting. I felt betrayed on Sunday and I felt betrayed again yesterday by the players and by the man who is supposed to motivate them and organise them to perform.
I don't care if he is the best man to keep us up, I would rather go down rather than have this brazen, bludgeoning buffoon in charge of the club I love.
