Allardyce - No favours
West Ham United,
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce had to tell his players to ignore any more ticket requests for Saturday's trip to Wembley.
The Hammers quickly shifted their 35,000 allocation for the npower Championship play-off final against Blackpool as they attempt to secure promotion back to the top flight. And as the Seasiders have tickets to spare, many thousands more Hammers fans are expected to make the trip for West Ham's first visit to the national stadium since 1981. And Allardyce admitted he and his players have been inundated with requests for the hottest ticket in town. "There will be more than 35,000 there, more like 45,000, knowing our fans," admitted Allardyce. "Everybody has rung me for tickets. Fortunately the deadline has passed so if anyone is hearing this, I won't get you one anymore. "And if I catch players getting people tickets as well I will give them a good dressing down because we have to focus on the job now."
