We here at the Transfer Tavern were delighted to see Sam Allardyce bounce back from the embarrassment of his tenure at the England national side’s manager.
He’s back in the club game with a return with struggling Premier League side Crystal Palace – to try and do what he does best and keep them up!
Having arrived following the sacking of Alan Pardew just before Christmas, the new gaffer will surely look to use the current January window to improve his side as he so successfully did so at Sunderland last season.
But, before Palace should look to add to their side, they really should consider allowing some players to leave the club.
Balancing the books is always key for those sides nearer the bottom of the league, particularly with the risk of Championship football being on the horizon.
So, with that in mind, it’s time for Sam Allardyce to get rid of these two Crystal Palace players this week…
