West Ham were dumped out of the FA Cup on Sunday, following a 5-0 defeat against Nottingham Forest.
His hand forced by a growing injury list, Sam Allardyce fielded a youthful side at the City Ground. The Hammers, whose starting line-up included three debutantes, were undone by goals from Djamel Abdoun, Andy Reid and a hat-trick from Jamie Paterson.
Allardyce spoke to Skysports.com about possible repercussions from the club's co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan:
There might be, who knows? It's their decision, not mine.
I'm not saying it won't happen unless I start to get results. I have got to get results, I know that.
But I made them (Gold and Sullivan) aware of what would happen today because I'm not in the position to go and do these things without telling everybody internally what is planned for the next few games.
