I am Inevitable! Twitter reacts as Big Sam looks set for Premier League return as WBA boss

West Bromwich Albion became the first Premier League side to push the panic button by sacking Slaven Bilic today, dismissing the under-fire manager despite last night’s spirited 1-1 draw at Manchester City.

In almost inevitable fashion there is one name right at the forefront of their succession plans, the Premier League‘s most famous firefighter seemingly set for a return to management in the Midlands.

Sam Allardyce may never be the most fashionable figure and stands as an antithesis to free-flowing football, but he knows how to organise his troops and there are few better equipped to cope with the pressures of a relegation dogfight.

As always, the wonderful world of Twitter was on hand to react to Big Sam’s imminent return:

English football is currently home to some of football’s finest minds at present with the likes of Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho all in charge of Premier League clubs, but why complicate matters when it comes to getting results.

Score first, keep a clean sheet. The simplest of survival blueprints.


The peak of Allardyce’s career in the Premier League often saw both he and his side ruffle more than a few feathers amongst the division’s big boys, will West Brom become the new nightmare prospect for the league’s leading sides?

Big Sam’s marmite management may make him a divisive figure, but the old-fashioned lump at least knows what he stands for.

Certainly none of this pathetic play-acting from foreign fancy-dans.

It’s the inevitability of Allardyce’s return that has most struck football fans everywhere, however, the Premier League’s most notorious firefighter the go-to guy when the going gets tough.

Whilst the arrival of Allardyce looks set to see West Brom become the latest struggling club to achieve a unique hat-trick…

West Brom may be gearing up for some wholly unpleasant and uncompromising football, but at least there is hope at The Hawthorns with smooth-moving Sam soon to be in charge.


Whilst at the end of an unprecedented and unpredictable year of events, we should perhaps be grateful for at least some normality in all of our lives.
