Sunderland settles for Allardyce
Sunderland has appointed former West Ham manager Sam Allardyce to replace Dick Advocaat who resigned last week.
The former Sunderland player left the Hammers at the end of last season and takes over a team languishing in the relegation zone.
The Black Cats are still to win a single match and that task begins at the Hawthorns where Allardyce will face West Bromwich Albion in his first match.
His first match at the Stadium of Light will be a match against one of his former teams Newcastle United, a match will even bigger this year as both fight to stay in the Premier League.
Here is some stats from Allardyce's last season with the Hammers:
