Sam Allardyce named Crystal Palace manager

Crystal Palace Football Club have announced Sam Allardyce as their new First Team Manager on a two and half year contract.

Chairman Steve Parish said, “We are delighted to be able to make an appointment so quickly and fortunate that someone of Sam’s calibre and experience was available”.

Allardyce will take charge of the team with immediate effect in time for the Boxing Day match against Watford.

Speaking to Palace TV after his appointment, Allardyce discussed the ambition at the club and insisted he likes the look of the current crop of players at his disposal.
“Recently [the club] has been very impressive the way it’s grown, the fact that they’ve held the Premier League status over a number of years now and the fact that the fans, and the stadium when you’re there, [create] a very, very good atmosphere and a very passionate one,” he said. “I hope we can bring some joy, particularly over Christmas and New Year, but also in the long-term and over the course of the season.
“The club seems to be very ambitious, certainly the chairman and the owners, they want to take the club in the right direction. I like the look of the squad and that’s probably the reason that I’m here: I feel the club can go forward from here and I hope I can help it go forward. It seems to be very ambitious.
“It’s the best league in the world, I don’t think anybody doubts that today when you see the quality of the Premier League,” he added. “It’s a difficult league.
“With my experience I think I can help us get a few more results on the board over Christmas and New Year to make everybody feel a bit more comfortable.”
