Samuel "Sam" Allardyce (born October 19, 1954 in Dudley , West Midlands ) is an English football coach and former player.

Player career

Allardyce - also called "Big Sam" by his followers - attended the "Sycamore Green Primary School" and later the "Wren's Nest Secondary School". His greatest success as a football player was in 1978 winning the second division championship and promotion to the top English division with the Bolton Wanderers . Later he was still active for Sunderland AFC before he went to the US North American Soccer League to the Tampa Bay Rowdies .

Coaching career

After retiring as a footballer, Allardyce was signed by West Bromwich Albion in February 1989 for the position of cotrainer for Brian Talbot , always a supporter of Wolverhampton Wanderers , West Bromwich's greatest rivals. His employment lasted two years and ended in his and Talbot's dismissal when the club first relegated to the third division. Allardyce took over the role of player-coach at Irish club Limerick and led the club in its only season there in 1992 as the second division champions in the country's top division. His next coaching position was Blackpool FC , where he was sacked when he failed to move up to the second division, although the club had topped the table throughout the season. Blackpool FC fell to third place on the last day of the match and thus missed direct promotion. In the play-off , the club lost 3-0 after a 2-0 first leg win against Bradford City in the second leg. Allardyce was subsequently on leave.

In January 1997, Allardyce returned to the football business as a coach of Notts County and was relegated from the third division. The next year he rose again with the club. Notts County broke several national and club records in the promotion season when they won the fourth division championship by 19 points and provided the first post-war team to mathematically secure promotion in mid-March. He stayed at Meadow Lane until September 1999 and then returned to his previous club, Bolton Wanderers , to be the new coach there in the second division. Although the Bolton Wanderers lost in the play-off games against Ipswich Town in the 2000 play-offs , they made it to the FA Cup semi-finals under Allardyce's leadership . The following year, the club reached the play-off final again and returned after a 3-0 win over Preston North End after three years in the Premier League.

The first season in the English top division began with three wins and one draw from the first four games. Nevertheless, he turned his relegation only in the penultimate game of the season. In the following year, the club ranked only one place above the relegation zone in the final table with only two points. From then on, Allardyce established himself with his team in the Premier League. He reached the final of the Carling Cup , which the Bolton Wanderers lost 2-1 to Middlesbrough FC . The 2004/05 season ended the Wanderers tied with Liverpool in sixth place and qualified for the UEFA Cup . There Allardyce led his team through the group stage and established him in the top half of the English league. Allardyce submitted on April 30, 2007 to the Bolton Wanderers his resignation. He was succeeded by Sammy Lee .

For the 2007/08 season Newcastle United signed him with a three-year contract. He left the club on January 9, 2008. In mid-December 2009 he was introduced as the successor to Paul Ince at Blackburn Rovers . He was released in December 2010. For the 2011/12 season he signed the first division relegated West Ham United . Under his leadership, the team rose again after a season in the Premier League. From 2015 to 2016 he was the coach of Sunderland AFC .

In July 2016 Allardyce was appointed England national coach. At the beginning of September he won the first game of the World Cup qualifying against Slovakia . At the end of the month, at a meeting staged by journalists from the Daily Telegraph with alleged investors from the Far East, he gave tips on circumventing the Football Association (FA) transfer rules , made fun of his predecessor Roy Hodgson , denigrated national players and described the association as "stupid ". He is also said to have signed a £ 400,000 consultancy agreement with the alleged investors . The association released Allardyce shortly afterwards, after just 68 days. In 2006 he and his son Craig Allardyce were at the center of an alleged bribery scandal.

Allardyce returned to the Premier League as coach of Crystal Palace in December 2016 . He resigned on May 24, 2017. At the end of November 2017, he took over the coaching position at the Premier League club Everton FC . After a disappointing season, Everton parted ways with Allardyce on May 16, 2018.
