This week has seen yet more speculation relating to Sam Allardyce`s position.

The media have taken great delight tin pointing out that Big Sam has yet to sign a new contract and that there are no, apparently, talks scheduled.

The tabloid press has inferred that Paulo Di Canio and Gus Poyet are just two candidates lined up to take over.

But Big Sam isn`t fazed and is in no hurry to sort things out, coolly remarking to the media,

“There`s no problem. We`ll talk once our Premier League status is secure.”

“Some owners pull the trigger early but it is not like that here.”


Let`s hope those are not famous last words form the boss!
