Allardyce confident winning over angry Newcastle fans

Sam Allardyce remains confident he can win over Newcastle United's fans.

He said: "I got booed off when we lost a semi-final of a play-off at Blackpool against Bradford, and then got sacked four days later, so nothing surprises me.

"At the end of the day, this is Newcastle and I knew what was coming if I did not get the results right or the performances.

"There is an impatience around the place and the desire for success and of course, that impatience was shown at our performance against Liverpool.

"I am not surprised and I cannot say we did not deserve it, I think we did.

"At the end of the day, constructively it will not help, but that is not for me to tell them.

"They pay their money, they are entitled to do exactly what they want when they come to watch a football match.

"For us, we have just got to take it on the chin and make sure we do not put ourselves in that position again.

"Basically what we do is when they turn up, entertain them and give them what they want."
