England Name Sam Allardyce As Their New England Manager

bog-sam-celebratesIn a decision that talks more about the dearth of good English coaches, the England FA have names Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce as their new manager. Big Sam, the throwback coach who loves a big center forward and a long ball into the box replaces Roy Hodgson who oversaw England’s worst performances in back-to-back tournaments in history.

Allardyce has called on his new players to make the country proud again saying in a press release:

‘I am extremely honoured to be appointed England manager especially as it is no secret that this is the role I have always wanted. For me, it is absolutely the best job in English football.

‘I will do everything I can to help England do well and give our nation the success our fans deserve. Above all, we have to make the people and the whole country proud.

‘While my main focus will be on the senior team and getting positive results, I want to add my influence to the great work being done across the development teams at St. George’s Park – a facility I have used with my previous clubs.

‘I know we have talented, committed players and it is time for us to deliver.’

FA chief executive Martin Glenn tried to spin the Allardyce’s appointment adding:

‘Sam Allardyce is the right man for the England job.

‘His excellent managerial credentials, including his ability to realise the potential of players and teams, develop a strong team ethos and embrace modern methods that enhance performance, made him the outstanding choice.

‘That was underlined when we sat down to talk and we could not help but be energised by his personal perspective on England’s future and how it complemented the extensive work that we are looking to build on at St. George’s Park.

Sunderland who survived relegation last season by the skin of their teeth, and now have lost their manager right before the start of the new Premier League season, are expected to move quickly and name former Manchester United and Everton boss David Moyes as their new boss.

Unless England add a last minute friendly, Big Sam’s first match in charge of England will be a tricky away trip to Slovakia on September 4 as World Cup qualifying gets underway.
