The former England coach wants his squad to take responsibility for the staff’s livelihood, which, if the Baggies are relegated, may be at risk.
Allardyce has questioned the discipline, health and dedication of his new squad since taking over from Slaven Bilic two weeks ago. “The players are playing for everyone’s future at West Bromwich Albion. They’re not just playing for themselves, their teammates and their families, they’re playing for people’s jobs here. “The players at West Bromwich Albion play for the future of everyone. They’re not just playing for themselves, their teammates and their families, they’re playing for the jobs of people here. He begins to cut expenses and lay off individuals who could have been employed here for years and are Albion through and through. After Tuesday’s 5-0 home loss to Leeds, Allardyce said of his side, asking why they couldn’t build on the success that earned an impressive 1-1 draw at Liverpool on Sunday. “They should think about it for a while and use that for more determination on what we need to do to save this soccer club. ” Albion has already gained points against the champions, Chelsea and Manchester City, and Allardyce needs them to be motivated by the fear of the Gunners to take action. He said, “Let’s hope they see Arsenal as big as Manchester City and Liverpool because they seem to be doing the right things against the teams they are more scared of. I hope they are scared of Arsenal and it spurs them on to perform like they did against Liverpool and certainly at the Hawthorns. We need to start picking up points wherever we can.”
