[New Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce tells his hopes for the English Premier League outfit after succeeding Alan Pardew] I hope we can bring some joy, particularly over Christmas and new year, but over the long term, between now and the end of the season. The club itself seems to be very ambitious. Certainly the chairman and the owners seem to be taking the club forward in the right direction. I like the look of the squad and that’s probably the reason that I am here because I feel the club can go forward from here, and hopefully, I can help it go forward

[Sam Allardyce’s 1,000th match in management on a 25-year career] I actually thought I was already there when I left Crystal Palace because if you counted Limerick I was well past 1,000 games but those games weren’t added because it wasn’t a full-time professional club.

I’ve done it everywhere I’ve been – Newcastle, Blackburn, Bolton, West Ham Crystal Palace, Everton, I’ve done it all there. But what you can’t do is get the front line performing that much better, you’ve got to hope you’ve got good quality players up there, and Arsenal have.
