Allardyce reflects on West Ham boos during victory

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has reflected on last week's jeering during victory over Hull City.

Big Sam wrote for the London Evening Standard: "The match against Hull two nights ago was a new experience for me. I've been booed a few times in my playing, coaching and managerial career, who hasn't?

"I've been associated with teams who have been booed when we've been beaten; I've been booed when we haven't played well. Never before, though, have I or my team been booed after we have just won.

"I heard the booing first at half-time. We were in a good position, as we were 1-0 up.

"Obviously, the players are not immune to what they hear and you could sense their nervousness right to the end."
