I was taught that a manager (in any industry) should praise in public, but criticise in private AND that (as far as your subordintes' performances go) the buck stops with the manager. It seems that Allardyce doesn't believe in that approach to man-management.

As an ex manager for many years I totally agree Bobby, but then Allardyce is not a manager. he is just a bully with no real vision of how to play attacking football. Maybe I am a bad loser but this season has been really hard to stomach.

NickB57: Sadly, it seems that he is rigorously following the club’s stated philosophy of “expected” and “unexpected” losses, but he seems to be applying negative expectations to every away fixture and also to many home fixtures.
I appreciate that we need to be safe from relegation, but why not risk having a go if it’s an “expected loss” anyway AND, if it’s an “unexpected loss” type of fixture (i. e. an “expected win”) , then why not play with the confidence that our likely win should merit? Other sides - even lower-tier - have shown that it can be done against the big-six.
Trying to hold out for a draw - or hoping to snatch a 1-0 victory - might be pragmatic this season, but too often we’ve failed miserably even at that.
He may do a good job in getting the points to avoid relegation, but I see no signs that he can take us any further than that.

Agree 34 points 10 games to go and the so-called senior pro's (majority of them) through loss of form and confidence unable to lead, it is about time the Academy/ U23's were let loose and/ or give players like Klaasen, Tosun full games. We seem to attract/ hire coaches/ Managers that are so stubborn in their ways they refuse to believe there are other options. The Klopps and Contes of this World look at a loss and take it as a personal affront, they do not lay the blame on others, they take it on the chin, change things around and make darned sure they win the next one.
