Despite many fans saying they would not renew if Sam Allardyce stayed as manager the sales have gone through the roof

The general consensus at West Ham was if Sam Allardyce remained in charge at Upton Park then the number renewing their season tickets would plummet for next season.

However, it seems that prediction may well have been wide of the mark with the news that Monday saw a record amount of season tickets renewed for the Hammers’ third campaign back in the Premier League.

So are the fans content with the owners’ insistence on more attacking football?

Are they enthused by the signings of striker Mauro Zarate and attacking coach Teddy Sheringham?

Or are they simply passionate West Ham fans who want to see their team play at the highest level in their penultimate season at the Boleyn Ground?

That would seem the likeliest scenario and with season ticket prices frozen by the club this season, they have extended the renewal date until Friday, after which they will be put on general sale.

Those who renew for the next two seasons, will also have the opportunity to pick the best seats at the Olympic Stadium when West Ham move there in 2016.

Perhaps the fans are prepared to give Big Sam another chance after all. We shall see.
