Spare a though for Gareth Southgate’s predecessor, Sam Allardyce.

As England’s current boss was overseeing a thumping record win against Panama in Nizhny Novgorod, the man he replaced at the helm was watching the game in a pub, with only a Big Mac for company…

A penny for your thoughts, Big Sam?

Although to be fair to Allardyce, he does have a 100% win rate with the Three Lions (one game, one victory over Slovakia), unlike Southgate!

    Let’s be honest here – Panama are a pub team. Whilst Big Sam might not have made England look as classy as Southgate did today, he still would have seen them giving a shoeing, were he still at the helm.

    You fell for it as well….it was an advertising stunt for William Hill

    If i’m not mistaken Big Sam is Southgate’s predecessor, not his successor..
