Makes you wonder why he took the job. 

 

Calls for a Premier league covid circuit breaker (whatever the Fuch that is) 1 week after taking the job because he's worried about catching it! 

 

Then says he can't keep the side up with the current squad. 

 

The fact there is a global pandemic and that wba are shit really shouldn't be new information to him. 

Yep..laughable really, Managers like Pep & Klopp,Mourhino complaining with all their rescources,about the Lack of Resources & Bad Planning ,on the other side

Big Sam yapping about what he signed into...Then managers,like Rodgers,D.Smith,Wilder,Parker,just getting on with it & Hasenhuetl Living the dream..

 

Then some of these managers ,pundits,players  & fans ,Not clicking in with the Covid effect realities...

So glad the decision to bring in Allardyce has blown up in West Brom's face

I want him to fail but don't think he has yet. If he brings in three or four new players & then goes on a win streak he could still get them out of the drop zone.

Premier League want to have Fulham play Spurs where they have had to cancel the Villa game v Spurs. Fulham apparently don’t want it. 
 

These clubs hey? Fulham ought to suck it up, when one of your players breaks the rules and you get no punishment, then your position struggles slightly. They are bemoaning that they had to play 120 minutes on Saturday, well Spurs had to play on Sunday. 
 

If the clubs aren’t willing to swap things around this season, it will never get completed

There's no way a club should be forced to play a league match on 2 days notice. It's absurd to even suggest it. There's no way they'd ask one of the "Big 6" to do it.

I agree. I can see him buying a couple of players. Didn't he buy Schlupp from us when he was at Palace? Then they'll work on long ball tactics and set pieces in order to nick points. He'll ruin the team and make them a bunch of cloggers which many (players and fans) will absolutely hate but he'll get results. I honestly think this is his toughest job. Would have been better to go back down, reassemble and come back stronger and with lessons learnt (like Burnley did) than hire Allardyce.

It has happened repeatedly throughout the history of English football where successful teams have to adjust to hastily rearranged fixtures

I can't think of a single occasion where a club has been expecting a day off but then told they're due to play with 2 days notice.

It's not a bad suggestion to substitute Spurs v Villa for the Spurs v Fulham fixture, although the late decision is poor. Surely they were aware last week that Villa wouldn't be able to fulfil this fixture and could've decided then.

Teams are going to have to accept inconvenience this season, I'm afraid. 

 

At least Fulham get an extra day off after their midweek game which several teams didn't get over Christmas.

"Enhanced protocols" will do shit all whilst footballers continue to ignore the rules and do what they want. 

A bit like the restrictions for the rest of us then unfortunately.

I'm sure Fulham would rather the game out the way, they don't want a fixture pile up later in the season. 

And they'd choose this one being rearranged quickly instead of the Burnley match. I think they'd lose this whenever it was played.

Although I agree...they did beat us, got a draw from Liverpool and Southampton so they've possibly hope of something from this. I hope they win :D

I think that this season with how things are going, any team that can stay in touch with 3 or 4 games to go can win it. We’ve got a good chance, if we could get one extra striker. I know people think he’s rank but I reckon andy carroll would be a good signing. Big lad as an option, can score a goal and has never won anything so would give him a bit of a career ending boost.
