REVEALED: West Ham chief Gold 'favourites' Allardyce sack tweet

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is fast losing support inside the boardroom. The Daily Mail says Allardyce's future at West Ham appears to be hanging by a thread after co-chairman David Gold took the remarkable step of 'favouriting' a derogatory message about the under-fire manager on Twitter.

Allardyce has been made aware of the fact that Gold, who has 92,000 followers on Twitter, was sent a message by a Hammers fan that read: 'Is today the day we get rid of BFS?? Fingers crossed.'

'BFS' is a derogatory reference to Allardyce and Gold's decision to 'favourite' the message has only intensified the speculation that Allardyce's time at Upton Park may be up before the season has even begun.
