Watford striker Troy Deeney believes that Sam Allardyce could leave West Brom before the end of the month after the club’s poor form under his management.
Speaking on talkSPORT Breakfast with Laura Woods and Ally McCoist (11/01/2020 – 8:42am), Deeney warned the Baggies that failing to deliver during the January transfer market could force them into another managerial change: “If he doesn’t get three or four players in then he probably could walk by the end of this month.
“He could look at it and go, I don’t know whether he has been promised players, but this isn’t enough to do what he is renowned for, which is keeping teams in the Premier League.”
Despite taking a memorable point away at Anfield, the Baggies are yet to show any consistent signs of improvement under Allardyce and remain inside the bottom three.
A huge worry for Albion
West Brom supporters may not be particularly fond of Allardyce following his arrival at the club, but rumours that he could jump ship already would be a huge concern.
Not so much because of his potential departure, but the added upheaval at the club that would surely cast an end to their relegation fight.
That being said, West Brom’s record under Allardyce is worrying and there have been no signs of any improvement.
In four Premier League games, the Baggies have taken one point and conceded 13 goals along the way.
Compared to Bilic’s last four games, where Albion only conceded seven goals and recorded four points – one of which came away to Manchester City.
Pundit Chris Sutton made a great point be accusing Allardyce of already playing the blame game at West Brom in his Daily Mail column.
Given his Premier League experience, many may have been expecting an immediate improvement from West Brom, but if anything they are regressing compared to the team that Slaven Bilic left behind.
