Big Sam at the helm now. A man akin only to Tony Pulis in the ‘does a job, can keep a club up’ stakes. Ironically his opponent on Saturday. From a personal opinion he should’ve been appointed five years ago. Stability is what Allardyce brings and he needs to start with a result against the Baggies.
A quick talk to their fans and you realise though boring and disciplined they do carry a threat to test our defence. Rondon looks good. Berahino back in the picture. Abundance of wide players whilst Morrison, Yacob et al will offer a good base to build from.
