Allardyce made 578 league and cup appearances in a 21-year career spent mostly in the Football League, as well as brief spells in the North American Soccer League and League of Ireland. He returned to England to coach at Preston North End, also serving briefly as caretaker-manager. Allardyce has been labelled a long ball manager by some analysts, though he has disputed this perception as “totally and utterly wrong”. He takes a modern, technology and statistics centred approach to tactics and coaching, and has been praised for his organisational and man-management skills. Allardyce has been criticised for alleged corruption and has twice been the subject of undercover investigations. In September 2006, he and his son, Craig, were implicated in a BBC Panorama documentary for taking bribes, allegations which they denied. His father was a police sergeant.
1 defeat League Cup to Millwall at Burnden Park. 76 season, and went on to miss out on promotion out of the league by a single point. Allardyce was offered a contract by Norwich City manager John Bond, but the offer was bettered by Colin Addison at Derby County, and he verbally agreed a three-year contract with Derby. Allardyce wrote to every club in the top two divisions to inform them he was available on a free transfer, and privately lamented choosing his past clubs for financial rather than footballing reasons.
In July 1984, he was signed by Mick Buxton at Second Division Huddersfield Town. The move reunited him with Paul Jones, his former centre-half partner at Bolton. Bolton fans gave him the nickname “Super Sam Bionic Man” due to his tough tackling approach and the way he quickly got up after heavy collisions whilst the opposition player would be left flat on the ground. Allardyce was hired as a player-coach by Brian Talbot at West Bromwich Albion in February 1989. 92 League of Ireland First Division. 93 season to coach at Preston North End under Les Chapman. We had missed promotion to the First Division by a point.
Yet it had all been done on next-to-nothing, and during the months leading towards the end of the season, I hardly ever saw Owen Oyston. But he always assured me that, no matter what, my job would be safe. I turned up for that meeting having been told it was to discuss new terms. Instead, I was told that I was being sacked. It was cold, calculated, pre-planned, whatever.
