Iím not after a reaction, been a big fan of sam Allardyce for years as one of my fiends who pioneered research into sports science told me Big Sam was the only premier league and championship manager to not only take an interest but offered to part fund his studies.
My friend got to work with him for a few months and then went onto Work with 4 other Premier league clubs, 2 championship and 1 league 2 club.
He said Big Sams preparation and tactical insight was by far the best, he had the opposition researched in major detail and his own players drilled on a plan A, B, C, D, etc
He said no other manager including a very famous one at Man Utd never demanded and ensured the same level of preparation of both tactics and players physical needs.
On a side note, heís never been given the chance at a big club with ambition.
This is very much his time.
He has suffered unfairly from mud slinging from the London press, and sadly many of our fans have believed the lies.
There was only an article on the echo website yesterday that dismissed many of the myths and lies spread on this very forum.
Big Sam will take us places. With 2 transfer windows between now and next season, he will have us very competitive and a trophy on the way.
