At both S’Land and Palace, Allardyce took quite a while to get them going.
In both instances he was saved by unlikely results. In thr first instance, they played us in Martinez’s last game, probably the easiest fixture ever.
At Palace they won at Anfield and Chelsea plus also beat Arsenal at Home.
They then went pretty rubbish again.
He wouldn’t last 6 games here if results humbled along in the short term.
