Allardyce: Same old story

Last updated : 07 March 2021 By Wba-mad Editor

Sam Allardyce admits he sounds like a broken record after again highlighting Albion's inability in front of goal. 

The Baggies had the best chances against Newcastle but again drew a blank in front of goal. 

In fact, Albion have only found the 20 times in 28 games and have missed golden opportunities recently to pick up valuable points. 

Big Sam said: "You’re hearing me talk about the same things the Albion fans have heard me talking about for the last four or five games.

“It’s massively disappointing. We should have won the game and taken an extra two points.

“We can look back as far as Manchester United, missing chances. That would have been an enormous win for us.

“We can look back to Burnley with ten men, missing chances. Mbaye and Matheus missed chances there with one hitting the bar and one being cleared off the line.

“We beat Brighton, but then you look at the Everton performance which was probably our best. We didn’t convert our chances and we ended up losing the game 1-0.

“On Sunday, we had plenty of opportunities to see Newcastle off which we didn’t take.

“It was another big one like Brighton because we had the chance to catch three points up on Steve’s Newcastle time.

“We’re very close to turning it the other way, rather than going backwards for me. The lads have to stay confident and keep believing.

“A lot of our final ball wasn’t as good as we would’ve liked.

“We didn’t really hit the target enough against Newcastle, despite being better against them.

“We were brilliant defensively again. We just need to get the ball into the back of the net.”
