Twitter Reacts: Big Sam is England's new man

Harris Simpson by Harris Simpson / 25 July 2016, 10:41

Sam Allardyce has finally landed his dream job as England manager, and it is fair to say that opinion is divided.

Allardyce, who was famously overlooked for the position in 2006, has a reputation of playing route one football, which does not sit well with many fans, but others are excited about the prospect of a manager who will look to focus on the collective, rather than just individual ability.

Allardyce has little to lose as he arguably takes over an England side which many have already lost hope in. Hodgson’s England were completely abject in France, and their defeat to Iceland was utterly embarrassing.

In previous regimes, England have opted for foreign managers with extensive CV’s, while Hodgson was seen as an Englishman with a continental style. Neither style has been a success, and it has opened the door for managers of ‘Big Sam’s’ ilk, who despite his basic tactical approach, is seen as the perfect man to inject some much needed passion back into the national side.

Allardyce will be relishing the opportunity to lead England to Russia, and if he can instil the same work ethic synonymous with his Premier League sides, Allardyce has every chance of making his time as England manager a success.

Allardyce is being backed by many on twitter to reignite the players pride in playing for England, and accusations that ‘Big Sam’ only plays a negative brand of football, are being questioned

However, despite a largely positive reaction to his appointment, some have taken issue with Sam Allardyce’s honours list, or rather lack of, and concerns have been raised that a return to a traditional English style may be detrimental to a new generation of English talent

Despite the doubters, Big Sam will be absolutely delighted to have finally secured his dream position, and whatever happens, England fans are sure to be in for a treat with ‘Big Sam’
