Who do you want as next West Ham manager?

There is even more talk tonight of Sam Allardyce's future and I'm sure the fans are as sick of it as Sam is.  All I hope is that the board are decisive followng the final whistle of the final game.  As to whether Big Sam should stay, I'm actually indifferent.  I don't think it will … Read more
