West Ham United chiefs refuse to panic over their recent form slide.
The general feeling of the board is they want to stand by Allardyce and trust him to lead the club out of trouble and allow him the benefit of playing Andy Carroll, back in training last week, to help him do so.
However the club's hierarchy are aware that three seasons ago they made a mistake with Avram Grant by staying loyal for too long and paid the price of relegation.
At this stage there has been no open talk amongst members of the West Ham hierarchy about parting company with Allardyce.
