England Fans React To Sam Allardyce's Departure

It's official. Sam Allardyce is no longer the England manager. The former West Ham and Bolton Wanderers manager lasted less than 10 weeks in the job, but at least leaves with a 100 percent record, albeit from only one game in charge.

Allardyce offered his resignation tonight in the wake of revelations unveiled by The Telegraph last night that revealed the former England boss informing undercover reporters how to circumvent FA laws regarding third party ownership of players. Allardyce also made disparaging comments about Roy Hodgson and the FA.

Fans, journalists and pundits alike have been quick to react to the breaking news.

What next for Big Sam? A job abroad? I'm A Celeb? Debut album? Presumably between his work as England manager and as a part time consultant for shady fake businessmen, he's missed out on Season 2 of Narcos, Stranger Things and the WWE Cruiserweight Classic. Might be time for a fortnight in front of the telly before any drastic career moves.
