Sam Allardyce has built his reputation on saving Premier League clubs from relegation, but he may have bitten off more than he can chew with the Glaziers. 'I am scared that we won't succeed, yes, definitely. Because the last thing I want is to say I've come here and not been able to save Crystal Palace.'
Since Big Sam replaced Alan Pardoo on December 12th, Palace have taken one point from a possible twelve. However, it is not all bad news on the points front. Sam has never had so many Nectar points with Sainsbury's being so convenient.
