The players are the problem not the boss
I stated in last week’s column that I feared ‘Big Sam’ Allardyce had little idea of how to build a successful England team... The England job is near impossible for anyone nowadays. There are hardly any English players who make the teams of the so called top clubs. Arsene Wenger was back to his anti-English best as there wasn’t one Englishman left on the pitch at the final whistle against Southampton last weekend. Still, it’ll continue to get worse until the only suitable players called up will be coming from League One! Lord Sugar had it right with his ‘Carlos Kickaball’ comment and it’s just a shame almost every Premier League club has almost 11 of them in every starting line-up.
Balance The Books Give’ Big Sam’ a chance. Shame on you, for mentioning Graham Westley’s name. He has medals you know!
Fletton Lad I agree with every word you wrote about Sam Allardyce. @Jonjonh05 zzzzz Koni You write nothing new. Big Sam was a bad appointment when he landed the job and he’s still a bad appointment after one lucky, late win against 10 men. Devils Advocate Get behind your country Mr Swann. As you said yourself Sam Allardyce is obviously passionate about his country and its football team so give him a chance to transfer that passion to some of the underachieving players. They are the problem, not the boss.
