England has a new manager: Sam Allardyce. The 61-year-old leaves Sunderland and signed an initial two-year contract with a view to potentially extending that deal until 2020. The Black cats will receive a £3m compensation from the Football Association.

The appointment of Allardyce didn’t go unnoticed on Twitter:
Now that allardyce is England manager. Does that mean Kevin Nolan will finally get that well deserved 2nd cap? #lovers4lyfe

In all seriousness though, Allardyce deserves his chance. We need a no nonsense manager and Big Sam fits the bill. Let’s see what he can do.

Sam Allardyce is the new England manager. Wish him the very best. It’s not the impossible job it’s said to be, as I hope big Sam proves.

I’m surprised to hear that Sam Allardyce is England’s new manager. I was half expecting him to still be waiting for his chips.

Personal fan of Sam Allardyce’s style of management, hope he can instil a defensive resilience in this England side. Deserves a chance.
