Sam Allardyce for England manager? Fans are just plain baffled


England fans have been calling out for something new - and it seems like that something new is going to be Sam Allardyce.

The 61-year-old Sunderland boss is in talks with the Football Association to take over from Roy Hodgson after England's Euro 2016 disaster and is the odds-on favourite with the bookies.

The man once accused of playing "football from the 19th century" by Jose Mourinho has never won a major trophy.

He has achieved reasonable results in difficult circumstances though, notably with Sunderland and Bolton.

And for some people it seems that's enough.

Maybe with the England job he's not aiming high enough.

Now there's a thought...
