>> After a poor performance at this year's European Football Championship, British media are reporting that England will have a new manager in the next 24 hours.>> No, I was aware.>> Sutherland boss Sam Allardyce has been tipped to be Roy Hodgson's replacement. The 61 year old, set to leave the Premier League Club, after only nine months in the post, leading England in their first World Cup qualifying match in Slovakia in September.
Hodgson stood down after a two one defeat against European underdogs Iceland in the last sixteen of the Euros. Allardyce will become the 15th permanent England boss in a career of 467 Premier League games. A record only broken by Premier League legend Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsenal's long time manager Arsene Wenger, and Harry Redknapp.
