Quotes

Sam Allardyce

"We've got to start getting results, beginning with Bournemouth. Games are slipping by. Playing a game right on the last day of the window affects the mentality of the players.

"Constant rumours are disruptive. It's not very productive, trying to focus and prepare the team for one of the most important games of the season.

"We've lost the habit of winning. We recovered from a sticky start, worked our way into the game, had a couple of half chances, and then conceded that soft goal just before half-time.

"On the consistency of what the referee was doing, (that) was a certain yellow card. But I've got more to worry about (with) the players, and goals we conceded, than referees at the moment."
