Strap yourself in, it's about to get bumpy...

Sam Allardyce is in serious trouble.

The England manager was caught in a Telegraph sting negotiating a £400,000 deal for himself and offering advice to businessmen on how to navigate around Football Association rules on transfers.

The FA has launched an investigation into Allardyce’s ill-advised business meeting and, after just one game in charge, the England boss looks like he’s on the verge of being sacked.

Among Allardyce’s blunders include slagging off his predecessor Roy Hodgson, slagging off Gary Neville and making a bizarre comment about Prince Harry.

Sam Allardyce on…

Roy Hodgson

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

Gary Neville

“They were arguing for 10 minutes about bringing [Rashford] on, him and Gary Neville. So Gary was the wrong influence for him. F**king 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.”

Prince Harry

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

Already the odds look stacked against Allardyce keeping his £3 million gig, and Skybet has the odds on who his replacement will be.

The full odds on the next England manager are:-

  • 4/1 – Alan Pardew
  • 6/1 – Steve Bruce
  • 7/1 – Eddie Howe
  • 9/1 – Gareth Southgate
  • 12/1 – Jurgen Klinsmann
  • 14/1 – Glenn Hoddle
  • 18/1 – Gary Neville
  • 20/1 – Slaven Bilic
  • 22/1 – Alan Shearer
  • 25/1 – Roberto Mancini
  • 25/1 – Harry Redknapp
  • 25/1 – Guus Hiddink

Good news for Pards!
