Under-pressure West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has pulled no punches in telling his critics to shut up.
The former Bolton, Newcastle and Blackburn boss' position has come under scrutiny after dropping out of the Championship's automatic promotion places following a run of one win in seven matches.
But Allardyce last week accused his doubters of being deluded and now he has told those questioning his tactics they are 'talking b******s'.
West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has assured the club's manager his job is safe, however, he does appear to be feeling the pressure.
He said ahead of Friday's game at Barnsley: "Negativity around here has been very much in the forefront recently, which has been rather strange for me, because we have lost one in 12.
"You get opinions about our results like, 'James Tomkins shouldn't be playing in midfield because he is a centre-half'.
"You get all that b******s that goes around. What happens is I look at the performance of every player and say to everyone who says that, 'You're talking b******s'.
"He played in that holding role for three games with 10 men, so that is how short memories people have. That is how much b******s is talked about in football.
"I don't listen to that drivel, because what bothers me is that James Tomkins plays well."
Allardyce is also not 100 per cent convinced regarding his employment security, despite the vote of confidence from Brady.
He said: "You never know when your job is on the line. You can never guess."
