Sam Gets Vote Of Confidence, Di Canio To Hammers?

Sam Gets Vote Of Confidence, Di Canio To Hammers?

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has been given the dreaded vote of confidence which has put Swindon Town supporters on high alert.

Hammers vice-chairman Karren Brady told Sky Sports, 'Yes he will still be in charge next season - definitely.'

This normally means one thing, Promotion or you're out.

West Ham fans have made it perfectly clear that Swindon Town boss Paolo Di Canio is the man they want in charge by chanting his name at recent matches.

Di Canio would be a no lose risk for the Hammers management.

First of all they would appease fans by bringing back the messiah which would soften the blow of not going up automatically, secondly even if West Ham don't go up next season, Hammers fans are unlikely to turn on Di Canio giving West Ham management more time to get back to the Premier League.

Di Canio has told Swindon Town that he is here for the long term and is currently discussing a new contract with Town however most fans know it would be near impossible for Di Canio to turn down the chance to be West Ham job.

To most fans West Ham is the only job he would turn his back on Swindon Town for.

Let's hope Big Sam takes the Hammers Up and we don't need to worry!
