Big Sam – England Manager
- Written by James Palmer
In May, when Roy Hodgson was laying out his plans for the summer I can imagine that nowhere on his notepad did it say ‘July 25th – Watch Sam Allardyce be unveiled as my replacement’. But, here we are. Roy’s young England side underperformed at the Euro’s, somehow failing to hit the relatively low expectations we all had. Even the most optimistic England supporter probably only got to about the 50th minute of the Iceland game before he or she knew that Roy would be leaving before the end of the night.
