is anyone surprised really? loads of dodgy goings-on while at Bolton, usually involving his son Craig somewhere in the process.
He's crooked & that's all there is to it X)


Only one man is equipped with the high moral values and sense of propriety needed to repair the damage done by Allardyce.

Oh dear :|
Yeah doesn't make good reading for him
During Allardyce’s meetings with the reporters he also:
Criticised his predecessor Roy Hodgson, dubbing him “Woy” and saying that he “hasn’t got the personality” for public speaking;
Said England’s players were underperforming because they had a “psychological barrier” and “can’t cope”;
Suggested that players who were not being played for their club should not be picked for England;
Described the FA decision to redevelop Wembley as “stupid”.

I personally don't see a problem with points 2 and 3, it's the rest of the stuff, the dodgy dealings.

He agreed to travel to Singapore and Hong Kong as an ambassador and explained to the “businessmen” how they could circumvent Football Association rules which prohibit third parties “owning” players.

What Sam said
IN QUOTES | What Sam Allardyce said
On why Roy Hodgson, former England manager, would not be a good public speaker:

“He’d send them all to sleep, Roy. Woy. He hasn’t got the personality for it.”

On where Roy Hodgson went wrong as England manager:

“Players let him down in the end. I think maybe he, he was too indecisive. Cast a bit of an anxiety over to the players maybe. I mean prior to the Iceland game, he won all 10 qualifiers. We'd drawn with Russia, we should have won. We beat Wales, and that was our worst performance. We drew with Slovakia, and we only had to draw with Iceland to get through ... he just collapsed.”

On Gary Neville, former assistant manager England manager, advising Hodgson on the decision to substitute on Marcus Rashford during the match against Iceland in the Euros:

“They were arguing for 10 minutes about bringing him on, him and Gary Neville. So Gary was the wrong influence for him. ----ing tell Gary to sit down and shut up, so you can do what you want. You’re the manager, you do what you want, not what they anyone else”

On the chances of footballers playing for England:

"Can’t play them then. Joe Hart. Jack Wilshere, on the bench for Arsenal. Oxlade-Chamberlain on the bench. You can play them, but they’re not playing for the club. When they’re not playing for the club, they’re just short of match practice.”

On Wembley Stadium:

“They [the FA] stupidly spent £870 million on Wembley, so they’re still paying that debt off. They completely rebuilt it. If they’d built it anywhere else, it would have cost about £400 million. They completely floored it and then rebuilt the new stadium which is fabulous, but that sort of debt is not really what you want. Most of the money the FA make[s] will go to the interest on the debt.”

On the gambling habits of current or former senior England players:

"[A club owner] bailed [a player] out twice. That’s players for you, dealing with the boredom, see. It were worse in our time … we gambled more in our time than they do now. We played cards, played cards all the way back [from away matches] … you’d do your wages in.”

On the Football Association:

“They’re all about making money aren’t they? You know the FA’s the richest football association in the world? Well, I shouldn’t say that. They’re not the richest at all. What they do is they have the biggest turnover in the world with £325 million.”

On the Duke of Cambridge failing to appear at the launch of the Euro 2020 football tournament:

“The only one that never turned up was Prince William. He’s our ambassador for the Football Association, so it would have been nice if he’d have turned up but he obviously had more, much busier things on.”

On Prince Harry:

“Harry’s a naughty boy. He’s a very naughty boy, very naughty. He shows his bottom and all sorts.”

Upcoming next few days after a 10 month telegraph investigation
FOOTBALL FOR SALE | What the Telegraph investigation will reveal
The Telegraph began investigating corruption in English football last year after receiving information that specific managers, officials and agents were taking or receiving cash payments to secure player transfers. Over the coming days the Telegraph will detail how:

The assistant manager of a high-profile football club accepted a £5,000 cash “bung”

Ten managers were named by players’ agents as taking bribes to fix player transfers

Two well-known managers discussed becoming ambassadors for the same fictitious firm as Sam Allardyce

Another high-profile manager admitted his players broke FA rules by betting on their own games but he failed to report it

A senior figure at a Premier League club helped undercover reporters to formulate a plan to bribe managers

He will be fine because of him stating that he would have to run things by the powers that be.

Although that could mean that the powers that be are also involved in scams, in which case it will all be swept under the carpet sharpish.

Football as an industry is rotten to the core, we just don't know enough of the inside. Look what happens when the entire FIFA organisation is discredited. Two weeks in the news then never heard of again.

Again individuals using their position to gain financially.

Many people would do the same with or without a football background.

Pardew is the Telegraphs' man, they backed him when Woy was emptied - bit miffed when Allardyce was picked ahead of him. Surprised odds are so short - he was 14s and 12s last time; can't say he's improved that much that he's at 5s. oO

seriously. you want for this job for decades and you do this.. come on Sam. Im a big fan and so
happy you got the job and now you mess it up :(. Just shows the greed is always there no matter how
much money you have. :(
#23
Needs to go and to be honest it might be a good thing for English football. He was an uninspired hire and hopefully they rectify that with their next hire. Personally I'd go for someone like Jurgen Klinsmann and have a young English coach work under him with an eye to taking over somewhere down the line.

We don't endorse corporate fraud in banking, so why do we endorse it in football?

Hello everyone. Should Allardyce depart, it is thought that Gareth Southgate will be the man to oversee England’s upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovenia, on 8 October and 11 October respectively.

Steve Bruce has replaced Alan Pardew as the bookies’ favourite to be the next permanent England manager, and it is unlikely that Southgate’s view on the permanent job will have shifted from the summer, when he distanced himself from the position before Allardyce was appointed.

From Allardyce to Bruce. Fantastic.

Southgate on the other hand has done some interesting things with the under-21s.

I hope not as Im really a big fan of his. Have followed him since his Bolton days and
have always backed his teams. Im sad that finally he gets his dream job he messes it up.

Hope he stays as he could do wonders for England but I fear his days are numbered. :(

bye bye Moyes and welcome back Alladyce. Sunderland fans will be dancing if he leaves the England job
#39
With the video release Sam cannot now come out and say a different side of events as it clearly shows he was the one to tell them how to get around the rules etc
The FA has asked for full transcripts so there is more to come out which either we will be drip fed or Sam stands down rather than being sacked really cant see him staying in his position.
