Can Allardyce Save Sunderland?

During his first press conference as Sunderland boss, Sam Allardyce outlined exactly what needs to be done in order for his Sunderland team to stay in the Premier League. At the moment, William Hill do not think that the Black Cats will be able to achieve their target offering just 1/4 that they are relegated this season. 

Sam Allardyce has spent a fair amount of time at each club since Bolton (barring his spell at Newcastle) and he is 1/3 to still be in charge at the Stadium of Light on the final day of the season.

Premier League relegation: 1/4 Sunderland; 4/6 Aston Villa; 11/10 Newcastle; 2/1 Bournemouth; 11/4 West Brom; 3/1 Norwich; 7/2 Watford; 6/1 Stoke; 14/1 BAR 

To stay up: 11/4 Sunderland; 11/10 Aston Villa; 4/7 Newcastle; 4/11 Bournemouth; 1/4 West Brom; 2/9 Norwich; 1/6 Watford; 1/9 Stoke; 1/66 BAR 

Next Premier League manager to leave: 6/4 Tim Sherwood; 9/4 Steve McClaren; 9/2 Jose Mourinho; 25/1 Quique Flores; 25/1 Tony Pulis; 33/1 Alex Neil; 33/1 Louis van Gaal; 33/1 Mark Hughes; 33/1 Mauricio Pochettino; 33/1 Roberto Martinez; 33/1 Ronald Koeman; 33/1 Sam Allardyce; 33/1 Slaven Bilic; 40/1 BAR 

Will Sam Allardyce still be in charge of Sunderland on the last day of the 2015/16 season: 1/3 yes; 9/4 no
