    No surprise really, i think the Charman already sounded him out right after the Wigan game. If anyone can keep them up, it is Sam, not sure how the fans will adapt to his style of football though.
     
  6. A lot is said about his style of football, but he had some quality players around the hard men, I certainly wouldn't complain about having to watch Jay-Jay Okocha in his prime.

    True. I must admit there was the odd occasion or two watching Bolton where their football, especially when Ococha was there was quite pleasing to the eye. That said, i bet you wouldn't want him as Wolves manager would you?!;)

    He'll do a good job there, providing he gets more than 17 games this time :rolleyes:

    Will keep them up if he gets money to spend in the January transfer window. He knows what to do to stay in the Prem whether you like him or not.

    Astute appointment. Similar decision to that Wolves had to make when Hoddle walked...young, new manager, without much experience (Ince) or someone that has been there, done that and got the preverbial T-shirt (McCarthy). We went one way, Blackburn went the other. I think Allardyce will steady the ship well there provided he can bring in a few players to stiffen the team up a bit. I don't know if he's got enough time to keep them up, but I'm sure he'll improve their results even though I don't like him personally.

    Now that's a fair bet, what is it 6 straight defeats? I reckon Dale Winton would improve their results :D

    He'd certainly stiffen them up at the back. :D

    Thats Blackburn safe for me then.

    Good appointment but hardly a step up for Allardyce (although you could argue that eating human excrement for a living is a step up from Bolton) but a decent club. Thought he would probably end up at Sunderland to be honest.

    I think this is a very good appointment from Blackburn's perspective. However, I was looking at the 606 page and some Blackburn fans were moaning. They should be greatful that someone with as good a record as Sam has agreed to go there.

    Who the hell did they think that they were going to attract, Martin O'Neil, Alex Ferguson...?

    I agree entirely mate...:D joke of the week....in more ways than one.

    PS a serious question: is the alleged bungs enquiry by the FA still going on, I haven't heard anything for a couple of years.

    I thought they'd drawn a line under it, but I can't comment further on my thoughts on the matter as big Sam will have his lawyers down on me like a ton of bricks. :D

    :D all only allegations of course.

    Anyone associated with Notlob is a **** ( fill in appropriate word) as far as many on here are concerned.

    His Bolton teams were a disgrace with their cheating antics and unsporting behaviour. I don't dislike Blackburn but give it a year and I'm sure I, and many others, will.

    Perhaps he has joined forces with Jason Fergusson.

    If the idiots there had given him more time he would have come through.

    Same as the people who forced a resignation out of Alan Curbishley at West Ham - they need their heads tested.

    Two good proven managers...

    Why do 'Big Sam's acolytes always ignore the huge amount of money he has spent over his career with $$$$ all to show for it?

    He makes Dave Jones look thrifty.

    Very true ...and he always has a huge staff of "assistants" of various sorts to add to any clubs wage bill.

    As you can see from above, his record was not great, but it was not the worst. Why do people judge him from 24 games as Newcastle boss and not countless games at Bolton. He turned a Championship club (now) into a club that qualifies for Europe. Granted, he spent big on wages, but he did not have the transfer funds that were available to other managers, who achieved a lot less.

    Superb appointment....

    He is the only manager I thought about when the Pressure was on Mick last season.
    As you all know I remained solidly behind MM, however when the Numpties were calling for MM to be sacked, Sam was the only manager I would have wanted. Brilliant manager, he was sacked by because a bunch of football fans with an over inflated opinion of themselves and there club, were dissapointed with results.

    He would have won something if he had been given time.

    He did a fantastic job year after year at Bolton. His record there was fantastic. I think Blackburn are the right sized club for him to take on, I expect he'll keep them up.

    It always puzzles me why people adore 'Big Sam'- for a start I hate calling him that, I much prefer 'Crooked Sam' or 'Cheating $$$$$$$ Sam' (allegedly, just in case his legal team are on the prowl). Newcastle fans hated his time up here, not just because the results were at best average- he started quite well but they got poorer and poorer each passing week- but because the football played was utterly dreadful. I said this before, it compared (not favourably I might add) to Wolves under Hoddle. They were completely boring and his team selections often defied belief. When people were wishing him to be the Wolves manager I was thinking that after Hoddle, be careful what you wish for.

    For me, there is a difference between adoring Big Sam and admitting he did a good job at Bolton. Just because he didn't succeed at Newcastle, it doesn't make him a terrible manager overnight.

    Virtually guaranteed to keep them up, but I can take him or leave him, quite honestly and I wouldn't want him at Wolves!

    Toon:

    The difference between Allardyce and Hoddle, in theory at least, is vast. Alardyce was a centre back who took no prisoners and Hoddle was a cultured midfielder admired around the world for his range of passing and vision and was proabably one of the five most gifted players of his generation in Engalnd.

    Allardyce's teams were uncompromising and you always knew what you would get, a physicala game allied with a high degree of balls into the box. Hoddle's teams (Swindon, Chelsea Saints, England) were easy on the eye and attacked fluidly.

    I'll agree the outcome was the same, but the ideal was much different and therefore are and remain different propositions as managers.
