Sam Allardyce has left the building.

We all knew it was going to happen, and the club announced they wouldn’t be renewing his contract just two minutes after this afternoon’s 2-0 defeat to Newcastle.

It probably wasn’t the best way to go about announcing Allardyce’s departure, but it doesn’t really matter now. He’s gone and the club are now on the hunt for his replacement – hopefully someone capable of leading us in to the Olympic Stadium and successfully taking us to the proverbial next level.

Given the lack of relationship between Big Sam and the Hammers faithful, it wasn’t too surprising to see the response from everyone Twitter immediately after the announcement.

There are fans who would’ve rather us stick with him for a couple more years, while there are others who are thankful for the job Allardyce has done over the last few years.

So here are some of the best tweets about Allardyce’s departure this afternoon…
