West Ham United Football Club insist they will stick with Sam Allardyce.
The Hammers appointed the former Bolton Wanderers manager in the summer, and tasked him with earning them an instant return to the Premier League.
Allardyce will achieve that if he leads United to playoff final victory on Saturday, but even if they fall to Blackpool, he has been assured that his job is safe.
"Whether it's a popular decision or not, come what may we will stick with Sam Allardyce," Upton Park co-owner David Sullivan told The Sun.
"We have a reputation for honouring contracts and I genuinely believe there is no point chopping and changing every year if you want to build something.
“I believe in continuity. Sam has a two-year contract and if we don't get promoted in that time I doubt I would need to fire him. He's said himself that he would walk away."
