I think what I'd add to that though is what Allardyce does is get underperforming players playing in a way that makes it easier to get results. Individually he doesn't improve players, and when he leaves clubs they're in exactly the same near relegation spot that he joined them in, but he knows how to play the percentages and just about survive. With West Brom he's got a Championship quality team and I really think he'll struggle, unless he's backed in January, at which point you have to feel for Bilic.

Didn’t he finish 8th with Everton? He had a good spell there considering where they were when he took over.

These mediocre clubs keep rotating through managers, often the same ol' bunch, and expecting different results. It's no surprise that clubs can't elevate themselves from their current standing when they don't receive significantly more investment or don't given managers time to affect real, lasting change. Not saying Bilic would have turned it around or built them into something more, but with how fast managers are expected to get results these days, I don't know what owners expect to happen.
That makes no sense as they do want the same result. Expecting a diffeent result from Allerdyce would be relegation. The same result is him coming in and keeping a poor team up as he always does.

Allyerdyce always comes in to a struggling relegation bound club and keeps them up. Did it with Sunderland, Palace and Blackburn. At Bolton and West Ham he went one better, he joined them outside of the Premier League, got them promoted and kept them up. He even got Bolton into Europe.

The only jobs he's struggled in were Newcastle and Everton. But those were diffrent jobs, he had to take mid table teams to the next level but couldn't.

He's not going to get West Brom playing great football and he won't get them knocking on the door of the top 6. However he'll keep them up and that is all they will want. He's been successful everywhere he's been when the job has been to keep a struggling side up so I completely understand why West Brom have gone for him.

Obviously no manager in the world can come in and 100% guarantee saftey. But with Allerdyce's record and the position West Brom are in, he's about as good a bet as it gets and a very good appointment.

I fully agree with what you are saying, but we have employed Bruce, McClaren, Pardew and Allardyce in relatively recent times <laugh>
...and don't forget Kinnear & Carver!! <laugh>

Would have thought they’d have learnt their lessons when they appointed Pardew as a past it manager. Thought it’s questionable if Pardew ever had it other than one decent season with us and one with West Ham maybe?

I'm not a fan of Bilic, but I fail to see how anybody can think getting rid of him and replacing him with Allardyce is a solution. Especially as he was ineffective when last in work and hasn't managed for nearly 3 years. Can they really not think of anybody better!?

I think it's harsh. He wasn't backed in the Summer and although they've lost most of their games this season, for the most part they've been close games.

Mrs Allardyce will be scouring the property market, looking for the future "Casa Baggies"

Seems nailed on for Big Sam <laugh>

Thought the PL had seen the back of the likes of Allardyce, Hughes, Pulis etc.
