In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, former West Brom and England midfielder Carlton Palmer issued a tough January transfer window to the club following the appointment of Sam Allardyce earlier this week.
The Baggies hierarchy pulled the trigger to fire Slaven Bilic just hours after his team pulled off an impressive 1-1 draw at Etihad Stadium against Manchester City.
What position should be Big Sam’s first priority in January?
On the right
Big Sam was appointed Wednesday afternoon, ending a two-and-a-half-year hiatus from management. He was fired from Everton in May 2018.
The 66-year-old ‘firefighter’ has a great job on his hands with Albion second from the bottom with just seven points and by next month, Palmer has delivered a warning to Allardyce, sports director Luke Dowling and owner Guochuan. The I.
He told FFC:
“Their hard, I think they lack the quality all the way through the page. IN half, real quality.
“So you are no going thaw to be power thaw change all that without running the risk of putting up yourself in a financial hole, and then not yet remaining in the Prime Minister League.
“You to know, you have has thaw identify the areas where you may strengthen, bring in maybe two or Three Players that give you that extra little bit of quality, that’s going to obtain you enough points thaw stay in the division “.
In fact, in recent seasons, Fulham has been the case where free spending does not guarantee safety, so it would be wise for Dowling and company to go into the next window with a solid strategy.
Something that they did not have throughout the summer, which generated frustrations between Bilic and the board. The Croatian almost give up after they also sold Ahmed Hegazi behind his back.
Allardyce will need to be backed and backed up well if Albion wants to have a shot at Hell or remain in the top flight.
A name has already been linked to a move to the Hawthorns in former Hammers and current Palace defender James Tomkins, according to Football Insider.
It’s a familiar name to Big Sam, but his new team is also among the lowest scorers in the division, so there are plenty of holes to plug in a short amount of time.
