sold. Good ones, too.
West Ham's owners have two choices. They can either a) accept that Allardyce will prove little of aesthetic worth but ultimately keep them in the comfort of Premier League mid tableish and all the broadcasting revenue that provides or b) get rid and attempt to recruit a manager with a genuine aptitude for flair and panache.
After Chelsea's ominously impressive dismantling of Burnley hogged opening week headlines, there is a sense that Manuel Pellegrini's quiet efficiency really has managed to take the league champions under the radar.
Surely Davids Gold and Sullivan must appreciate that managers have an identity? Asking Allardyce to suddenly play a style of football that he openly mocked last season with his self labelled 'Allardici' moniker is akin to pulling a fish from a stream and expecting it to wear a bow tie and have dinner with you.
6) My way or the highway for Allardyce
Part David Ginola, part Laurent Robert, his debut against Manchester City saw him generally attempt at least two different skills before releasing the ball. Oliver Kay of The Times remained unimpressed ('Great talent, but delivered little'), but that rather misses the point. Give us excitement and wonder over delivery every day of the season.
1) Bojan started just 50% of Ajax's games in the Eredivisie last season. He contributed four goals and three assists. There has been a rose tinted image of Bojan in a Barcelona kit to indicate just how far Stoke have come, but he last started a league game for them in May 2011, alongside leading lights such as Fontas (now at Celta Vigo) and Jeffren (Valldolid).
West Ham's apparent loyalty to Sam Allardyce is bizarre given his extraordinarily high wage (13th most handsomely paid club manager in the world, remember), but it becomes even more surreal given the demand for him to play a brand of sexy football somehow deemed to be the 'West Ham way'.
Against Newcastle, Fernando looked instantly at home in City's central midfield, whilst Yaya Toure appears to have collected his toys and put them back into the pram. Considering that they went New Balance Blackout Boots
5) Southampton will be just fine, thanks
But much of the ensuing panic overlooked the fact that Southampton have quite a wonderful academy system in place and have bought just as many players as they have New Balance Shoes Uk
There is no doubt that the next two weeks will be busy at White Hart Lane. Following the victory over West Ham, Mauricio Pochettino spoke of aiming for a squad of 25 players, but he still has 30 and has sanctioned another bid for Morgan Schneiderlin.
It is not Spurs' only concern, of course, but this appears a side in desperate need of a finisher to complement the creative riches at Pochettino's disposal.
Ronald Koeman may have lost his first game in charge, but Southampton dominated for large periods at Anfield, deserving at least a point. Turns out potentially having to spend allows for improvements to be made.
Despite such quantity, Pochettino's striking options look bleak. Roberto Soldado remained on the bench at Upton Park, with it appearing increasingly likely that the signing will leave after just one tortuous season. That leaves Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane. The Togolese forward leaves for the African Cup of Nations in January and failed to have a single shot on Saturday, touching the ball just 28 times in 83 minutes.
Let's not write them into eighth place just yet.
away to a side that may well finish eighth, won with ease and didn't start Sergio Aguero, Bacary Sagna, Fernandinho, James Milner, Pablo Zabaleta or Jesus Navas, you begin to realise that this will be a far stiffer defence of their title than two years ago.
A number of pundits were quick to predict the relegation of Southampton after they sold Dejan Lovren, Luke Shaw, Calum Chambers and Adam Lallana, albeit for pretty lofty fees.
It's a role that he appreciates, given the freedom to venture forward and the responsibility of being his side's most important creative force. Both seemed to be sadly lacking from his time at White Hart Lane, when he was restricted to just 26 league starts in two seasons.
7) Remy Cabella looks a class act
8) Spurs' squad still has striking issues
Only a sorry smashing together of those two antithetical options can cause West Ham relegation headaches. Right now, it's the route they appear to be taking.
