Big Sam took the piss

Recommended Posts

Sam Allardyce has called on West Ham United to increase their offer for Kieron Dyer. The Newcastle United midfielder appeared to be on his way to Upton Park after Alan Curbishley claimed terms had been agreed for a transfer. But, speaking on Saturday, Curbishley revealed that Newcastle had 'pulled' the deal at the 11th hour and did not expect it to be revived. Allardyce has confirmed the switch is currently off, but is open to an improved bid from West Ham. The Magpies manager was also unhappy with Curbishley's comments about the situation and says Newcastle have more right to feel aggrieved than The Hammers do. Top player"In the end we decided he was under-valued and escalated it and West Ham didn't want to roll with us over what we thought was realistic," said Allardyce after Newcastle's win over Sampdoria. "So he is back with us - a top player with a squad that is growing. "It's life isn't it? He has got a contract. You can go back and get on with it. "It is not a hard life is it? It is pressurised, but it is not a hard life. He will come back and do his best and go forward. "If anything happens in terms of West Ham increasing their offer then great, but if they don't, they clearly don't value him as highly as we do. "They're not as upset as we are with West Ham. That is private and confidential, but if Curbs started it then we are more upset than they are and that is a fact."
