Predicted Lineups: Previewing Leeds vs. Newcastle: The Lineups & Key Talking Points

Arlo Gibbons


Sam Allardyce has had a rollercoaster of a career. From being offered the Manchester City job to being fired by Newcastle before the season’s end, Allardyce has seen it all. Now, as he coaches Leeds United, he is faced with a relegation battle. The team lost their debut under Allardyce against Manchester City and there is concern that they may not survive the season.

Allardyce’s time at Newcastle was particularly tumultuous. While he started relatively well, winning and drawing games before the Premier League debut, problems soon followed. The team was unable to win a game in a six-game span and ultimately, Allardyce was fired before the season’s end.

Since being fired by Newcastle, Allardyce has coached all over the country at teams such as Blackburn, West Ham, Sunderland, Crystal Palace, and Everton. He even briefly took charge of the England international side in 2016, though this ended badly.

Allardyce’s current challenge is to keep Leeds United in the EPL. This will not be an easy task. The team has already lost their debut under him and faces tough opponents, including Tottenham. However, their best chance to get points and stay in the EPL is in their upcoming match against a struggling West Ham.

Despite the challenge ahead, Allardyce remains a respected figure in football. While he may not have had the most successful track record, he has remained resilient and continues to take on new challenges. As he faces his latest challenge with Leeds United, it will be interesting to see if he can lead them to success.
