Is Big Sam really the right man for England?

After yet another shocking showcase of international football from the Three Lions this summer, Roy Hodgson quite rightly saw his time as England boss come to a rather abrupt end after crashing out of Euro 2016 – with Sunderland’s Sam Allardyce ultimately becoming the next well paid manager to take on the job many have since deemed somewhat of a poisoned chalice in recent years.  

 

Big Sam certainly shoved his name up in lights when his determined Black Cats eventually managed to secure their Premier League status in the final months of the season, but as major question-marks still seemingly surround Allardyce’s style and overall ability to manage big name players, it remains to be seen whether or not the English F.A. have landed yet another stop-gap manager who will fail to set the international scene alight in upcoming tournaments.

 

The former Bolton, Newcastle, Blackburn and West Ham boss is clearly aiming to bridge that gap with the Three Lions fans this summer…

 

 

…even if some seemingly doubt his credentials as the new England manager…

 

 

But then again, Allardyce’s level of passion must nonetheless be commended in the cold light of day…

 

 

Big Sam has a wealth of top-flight experience to draw upon within the grand scheme of things…

 

 

…despite the admitted question-marks hanging precariously above his proposed playing style with the England national side…

 

 

Yet perhaps Big Sam could indeed turn the Three Lions into a winning team when all is said and done…

 

 

…especially as England have arguably proven one of the worst faring outfits upon the international scene in recent years…

 

 

Although some will seemingly never take to Big Sam no matter what the situation…

 

 

England arguably need someone just like Allardyce after crashing out to Iceland at Euro 2016 in largely embarrassing style!
