Mort on Allardyce

Mort on Allardyce

Having been the subject of thinly veiled Fat Sam criticism in the wake of his sacking, Chris Mort has come out on the offensive and questioned virtually every facet of Allardyce`s management of the club. Mort said, in answer to the porky one`s 'Billionaires are bottlers` jibe:

"Huge billionaires, multi-millionaires can't stand pressure? That doesn't make any sense. I think these sorts of comments say more about Sam than anyone else. I would rather look forward than dwell on the direction in which Sam took this club.

We invested more than £30million on acquiring new players last summer and increased the players' wage bill by more than £10 million. We wouldn't have done either of those things if we weren't going to back the manager.

A combination of the style and the results, particularly in November and December, forced us to think about where we were heading. Even if we had come through that phase under Sam, I'd have been uncomfortable as to whether where he wanted to take us was where we wanted to go.'

Laced.
