Big Sam: Science is in

Big Sam spoke to the Chronicle today and let slip a little of the methods he`s planning to introduce during his time on Tyneside. Science and technology seem to be very high on the hitlist, following on from his days at Bolton:

"To grow the backroom staff is going to be important in maintaining success,' Allardyce told the Newcastle Ryder. I don't know how the current United players live their lives now, but I'm sure they live very professionally. But there are one or two things that we think are unique in what we developed over the past seven or eight years that have been extremely successfully for the Bolton players, no matter how young or old they are.

The Gary Speeds of this world are testament to that - he's still playing a high level of Premiership football at 37. Some of the younger players like Kevin Nolan and Nicky Hunt have played at England Under-21 level.

Then, of course, there are some of the foreign players we've brought in over the years where people have suggested they're mercenaries and only came for the big bucks and to take it easy.

But the likes of Youri Djorkaeff, Fernando Hierro, Ivan Campo, El-Hadji Diouf and Nicolas Anelka have produced magnificent results. If I can get things in place - working with the players I've already got here at Newcastle - then it's only going to help them get better.'

If he can get 4 more years out of Butty I'd be well chuffed.
