    Can you be trusted not to make a dick of yourself to complete strangers?

    100% winning record though – best Engerland boss ever. I can hear the laughter from 20 miles south of Scotland (again).

    Brilliant news.

    SA is a total bell-end.

    I’m glad to see the back of him!

    We need Steve Bruce at Derby now – England can now have Pearson! 😀

    What a nob Sam Allardyce is. Couldn’t resist giving it the big “I am” and portraying himself as up for a bit of wheeler dealing. A bit like when Dallaglio got stung all those years ago, because he wanted to portray himself as a bit of ‘player’.

    Some people are just plain thick.

    It’s a farce.

    Should be played out at the Royal Opera House.

    Inrat. However, my take on this is that it has little to do with the game itself, or the press masterminding yet another national team debacle. I would suggest that in this instance, the journo’s are themselves pawns in this and at some point in the past, big Sam royally pissed someone off who has now enacted their revenge and not one broken knee cap involved.

    You can’t con an honest man as someone once said. Why Sam Avarice would risk everything for around 10% of his salary beggars belief.

    He can’t be short of a bob or two.

    Or he’s just greedy and he’s got a track record-remember the Stevens report?
    There were also unanswered concerns regarding the involvement of Craig Allardyce in a number of transactions. “The inquiry remains concerned at the conflict of interest that it believes existed between Craig Allardyce, his father Sam Allardyce – the then manager at Bolton – and the club itself.”

    Is he sacked? Or has he resigned? I hope he hasn’t been paid off.

    They FA are a **** joke

    They’ve been through this before
    10 years ago the BBC panorama made the same claims about him
    The FA launched their usual rigourous investigation, looked into every club in the country and found them all innocent ….. Apart from Luton Town who’s manager had appeared in the panorama doc claiming it was endemic in football, they were given a record fine and points deduction went bankrupt and then were deducted even more points, starting the next season on -20 or something ridiculous having been forced to sell their best players in a middle of an FA cup run.

    Anyway the FA (like all big money sporting bodies) are complicit in covering up this kind of corruption and then why not match fixing and obviously doping.

    May as well watch WWE wrestling- its about as genuine as any other big sport

    So, the list of current Englishmen managing in the EPL – Eddie Howe,Sean Dyche, Alan Pardew, Mike Phelan (sort of). Has there ever been a time when getting on the short list took less talent and experience? Have to go for a Jonnie Foreigner surely.

    Last successful English manager – Howard wilko in 1991…..

    That’s if we’re talking winning the top league….

    Stupid thing to get caught doing, but he’d only be saying what everyone else in the game knows goes on. Like I said, very silly, especially considering his role, but not corrupt and not much of a scandal. If there really was a scandal I suspect he’d be a lot more careful about who he’s talking to and where.

    Rooney for player manager – as his legs ‘go’ he can move to centre mid, defensive mid, centre half, goalie by 2030 World Cup.

    So, that makes it ok??

    SA deserves to be out of the job – make no mistake about that.

    If you’re employer takes a stand on a given matter, you are then caught giving advice how to circumvent said matter then you deserve 2 things:

    1. The sack.
    2. An award in f-wittery for gobbing off about to get round said matter.

    through my son school we got tickets to the England v malta game next week end , to ” witness a new era under Sam Allardice ” !!! lol . they might need to reword the letter .

    he deserved the sack, 100%, you can’t undermine your employer like that, but it’s not the greatest footballing crime is it? Clubs, agents and managers skirt the rules all the time, the FA do nothing about it unless the press kicks up a fuss. The FFP rules are made a mockery of every year. It’s a joke and firing SA wont make a blind bit of difference.

I think someone of previous good character could have skated that no problem – contrite apology, I was terribly misinterpreted etc. With BigSam though, he’s already a bit shady in many people’s minds, so it just looks really bad and he can’t bullshit his way out of it. He’s not been in the job 5 minutes and he’s working angles to line his own pockets.

    I was terribly misinterpreted

    but they have a tape so not really an option

    Probably had to go as the HMRC thing and agreeing to break the rules just makes him look like a greedy bastard who loves money and does not have much of a moral code.

    Daft thing to have done especially when he is so well paid anyway

    I was terribly misinterpreted

    but they have a tape so not really an optionThere’s always elements of doubt that allow you to build your own counter-story. Here’s John Higgins being misinterpreted saying he would accept money to throw snooker frames – different league of cheating to BigSam. Rap on the knuckles for failing to inform the authorities and he was back on the green baize in no time.

    The major problem with this is once Sam goes there’ll be no further investigation, no tightening of the rules the he can circumvent & no changes other than the England manager & the Daily Telegraph will have sold a few more copies.

    I hope he hasn’t been paid off.

    A reported 7-figure sum for him to leave quickly and quietly.

    Alan Shearer has popped his head above the parapet with some opinion or other.

    The speculation on who’s going to be next just highlights how unbelievably arrogant and utterly delusional not only the FA, but also the English media are.

    Arsene Wenger? Seriously? Why the **** would he want it? If he doesn’t renew his contract at Arsenal, then I’d think he’ll be getting offers from top tier sides from all over Europe. Take the England job instead? get a grip. I think we know what he thinks about the standard of English footballers by the huge amount of them he has in his squad!

    Then they say Sean Dyche or Eddie Howe, as they’re good young managers. Well… exactly. They’re managing lower tier Premiership clubs…. well …with no doubt the ambition to end up managing one of the big boys. So, again…. Why the **** would either of them want it? Its graveyard for managerial careers.

    On another level…. I did some work for Burnley last year, and spent a bit of time at Turf Moor. Its an incredibly solid, professional and well run business. Which allows Sean Dyche to get on with doing his job, without the constant off-pitch drama and farce as a distraction. So why would you go and work for a corrupt shambles like the FA?

    They’ll end up with what they deserve. A middling English manager, who’s never won owt, and never will. Or a foreign manager who fancies a quick multi-million quid payday
