And we've topped up his pension to a level he could only dream of so reputation isn't something he's concerned about nowadays...........................I doubt he's had any money worries since being sacked by Newcastle 10 seasons ago and walked away with a reputed £6m.
from The Guardian January 2008 -
<< Allardyce's position had been in jeopardy even before the start of the season, as the club's new owner, Mike Ashley, was rumoured to be keen on replacing him immediately. Ashley had not been involved with Newcastle when previous chairman Freddy Shepherd enticed Allardyce from Bolton last May. The manager was, however, entrusted with substantial transfer funds during the summer and began the season positively, winning 3-1 at his old stomping ground in Bolton.
Performances soon dipped, however, and doubts were raised not just about the quality of his signings, but also about Allardyce's style, with fans nonplussed by a strange lack of cohesion in the team and the manager's insistence on playing players such as Alan Smith in unaccustomed roles. The pressure intensified over Christmas, when Newcastle took just one point from four games - and that at home to rock-bottom Derby, who, back in September, recorded their first and so far only win of the season by deservedly beating Newcastle 1-0 at Pride Park.
Allardyce took charge of just 24 games, winning eight, losing 10 and drawing six. >>
