BIG BOSS MAN: Sam Allardyce expected to be named England manager

A new boss...

According to the BBC, the man that was able to keep Sunderland in the Premier League is set to be named the new England manager today.

England suffered a shock defeat to Iceland in the EUROs at the back end of last month spelling the end of an era for former England boss, Roy Hodgson.

Now that the dust has settled after Portugal took out the home favourites in the final, it only seems fit that the national team begin the process of life under new management.

BBC Sport: “Allardyce will leave Sunderland after nine months at the Premier League club.

“The 61-year-old replaces Roy Hodgson, who resigned in June after the surprise defeat by Iceland in the last 16 of Euro 2016 in France.

“Allardyce, a former West Ham, Newcastle and Bolton boss, spoke to the Football Association last week and has been chosen ahead of Hull's Steve Bruce.

“The only remaining issue to be settled is compensation to Sunderland, with Allardyce having a year left on his contract at the Stadium of Light.”
