I don't know about anybody else but I'm getting right royally hacked off by Allardyce tarting himself for the England job. How long has he been at the club for pity's sake? But here he is again, hitching up his skirt outskirt Wembley Stadium inviting, "I'm Sammy, try me."
That's probably why he is persisting with 4-5-1, they are vital statistics for international football these days and Doctor Evil has to prove he can perform every which way to impress the bowler hat brigade who run the game.
But his courting of the job is utterly inappropriate. Greenwood was invited to manage England and accepted the post with humility, describing it as an honour. Prior to his appointment, nobody heard Ron putting himself in the frame. He had a job to do at West Ham and was focused on that.
Allardyce should follow Greenwood's example and show loyalty to his employer instead of parading himself in the shop window like a whore in Amsterdam.
