Chris Sutton has claimed that Sam Allardyce is facing “huge danger” at West Brom as he continues to play the blame-game.
The Baggies crashed out of the FA Cup against Blackpool this weekend, adding to their woes in the Premier League this season.
Sutton claimed that Allardyce’s comments could filter through to his squad, who could stop running through brick walls for their boss.
Speaking on BBC 5 Live Sport, Sutton made the bold claim about Allardyce and the Baggies squad this season.
“Interestingly, Sam Allardyce after the Liverpool game, it was ‘my players’, after they got spanked by Leeds and Arsenal, it was ‘the players’.
“There’s a blame game going on here, at this moment in time, it doesn’t look like it’s going to end well, it’s always a huge danger, coming out and telling the players that they’re rubbish.
“These players are thinking, ‘you know what?’ They’re not going to run through brick walls for him.”
Nothing is going right
Could this season get any worst? Not only are things on the pitch a shambles, but things off of it also aren’t much better for the Baggies.
Allardyce has had nothing short of a disastrous start to life at the Hawthorns, conceding 15 goals in all competitions and only scoring three.
Big Sam is trying to motivate his players, but they have to be running through walls for him in the first place to then not be.
These players have been nothing short of a joke, and that performance at Blackpool was the tip of the iceberg.
Things have to change, and Sutton would come to agree if he watched the Albion consistently this season.
