Is Sam Cursed?
It`s a good question!
After winning the Barclay`s Premier League Manager of the Month award, for February, Sam Allardyce has had to watch his side lose two consecutive Premier League games, away to Everton and Stoke.
Those two losses are providing ammunition for the claim that winning the award invariably sees the winner cursed.
Ahead of the game it is something the opposition manager, David Moyes, has picked up on, remarking,
"I don`t know if he has the curse of the Manager of the Month award - I hope it`s a big curse. It`s always a tough game for anybody."
Indeed it is, our record against Manchester United contains some inspiring moments, let`s hope todays fixture is one we can add to the list.
