The former Everton, Crystal Palace, Sunderland and West Ham United is among the favourites for the West Bromwich Albion job.
Fans of some of Sam Allardyce's old clubs are warning West Bromwich Albion against hiring the former Everton, Crystal Palace, Sunderland and West Ham United manager.
Allardyce is among the favourites to be named Darren Moore's permanent successor, with James Shan expected to remain as caretaker boss until the summer.
Asked about the speculation linking him with the Hawthorns vacancy on Tuesday, the 64-year-old, who was sacked by Everton last summer, told Talksport he has received no contact as yet from West Brom, but said he would be open to an approach.
Those of a Baggies persuasion have already expressed concern about Big Sam's potential appointment, and their counterparts from Everton, Crystal Palace, Sunderland and West Ham are offering little reassurance.
Egotistical... This is why you don't want him at your club!— Shaun Phillips ⚫ (@1368SP) 2 April 2019
I don’t think Big Sam is the right choice for any football club! A bung taking dinosaur— Ewan Stephenson (@BuryToonES) 2 April 2019
Would rather be relegated— Stevie taylor (@StevieT1969) 2 April 2019
Basically it’s all about the money as always with Fat Sam. Don’t do it West Brom!— Sean Perry (@sxp55555) 2 April 2019
Evertonians wish he had!!!— Patrick Fogarty (@Pcf4) 2 April 2019

I thought it was an April fools? Poor old baggie fans— Aaron Stevens (@Aaron_Stevens81) 2 April 2019
West Brom remain in the hunt for promotion back to the top flight - where Everton, Crystal Palace and West Ham should each await - after winning all three of their matches since Shan took over.
They remain fourth in the standings, but are still six points off the top two with seven games remaining of the regular Championship season.
Does anyone think Allardyce would be a good appointment for West Bromwich Albion?
