Sam Allardyce joined West Ham United in June 2011 with the express intention of restoring the club’s Barclays Premier
League status. And within 11 months, the charismatic coach had fulfilled that aim, with the Hammers defeating Blackpool in the 2012 Championship Play-Off Final.
Since then, the east London club have continued their upward momentum, finishing a commendable 10th last term, and this
year playing a brand of expansive football that has helped develop and showcase the notable talents of Ravel Morrison, Mohamed Diamé and others.
Allardyce, 59, is probably best known for the incredible success he earned as manager of Bolton Wanderers – which included
guiding the Trotters into Europe for the first time in their history – though he has also managed Newcastle United, Blackburn
Rovers, Notts County, Blackpool, Preston North End and Limerick.
And as a player, he made over 500 senior appearances, operating as a tough-tackling defender.
