Is Sam Allardyce about to leave West Ham with a smile on his face?

Pressure of the West Ham manager increased significantly on Sunday as the Irons, second bottom of the Premier League, suffered a 5-0 whooping at the hands of Championship side Nottingham Forest in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.

Allardyce picked a side full of youngsters for the tricky tie at the County Ground, and the young Hammers proved as useful as an inflatable dartboard as they were torn about by the hosts.

With many West Ham fans raging at their team’s awful showing, Sam Allardyce courted fury at the fulltime whistle as he was spotted with a smile on his kisser as he shook Billy Davis’ hand.
