Allardyce unfazed over future

“You just have to accept the conditions” the Open leader J.B. Holmes

Despite remaining on course to achieve his target of 50 points and a top-10 finish in the Premier League this term, Allardyce???s position has been the subject of intense speculation in recent months.

But the 60-year-old, who is out of contract in the summer, remains unfazed despite the uncertainty about whether he will remain at West Ham next season.

Speaking ahead of the game against Everton, Allardyce said: ???Nearly two years ago when we finished 10th in the Premier League I signed a contract on May 29, after the season had finished. It was probably a good two weeks before the season finished that we negotiated it.

???I think at the end of this season it falls along the same lines. We sit down and we negotiate and I think then the outcome will be made to clear to everyone when those negotiations are finished.

???The speculation about other managers coming here is bound to happen. Speculation that they???re not happy with me or I???m not happy with them is bound to happen, because you have lots of columns to fill today.

???You???re bound to get a whisper here and a whisper there and third hand information from here or from there somebody telling you this and that which is the world we live in today.

???But like I said from a point of view of whether I am staying or going that hasn???t been decided yet.???
