I know the great Puro will not agree with me on this one but def Allardyce was the good man for the job!
Newcastle should learn from the other top teams.Look for example Alex Ferguson.No one in this board will say he is a bad manager...Believe it or not he had huge problems when he started at MU.Same thing for Houllier when he first came at Liverpool.
He had a very bad first year..I'm not even sure he was in the top 6 with a top team like Liverpool.3 years later after winning 5 trophys he was considered as the best manager in the world by our Liverpool fans friends (some have maybe now short memory but Houllier was really fashion in 2001).
I will not start a propaganda pro Allardyce on this board but i respect what he has done at Bolton.I'm not saying Bolton played an amazing football with him as manager but he has improved them a lot...From d1 to PL and from bottom to top 6...They were even in the battle for the CL ticket until the end of the season when Everton finished 4th.
I have no idea why Newcastle is so "pro britanic managers" after all the mistakes these "awesome british managers" have done but i can't see an end to this mediocrity soon.Allardyce was a god coach..just needed time.Now what will happen ? Let me guess..Magpies will appoint a new english shitty manager and he'll be sack after 6 months.Oh dear some things never change hey ?
