Sam Allardyce: Ex-England boss says entrapment has won: Big Sam heads overseas after being filmed telling a couple of "Far East businessmen" how to get around third party ownership rules. Plus making fun of Roy Hodgson's speech impediment and Roy's assistant Gary Neville. Not sure which but one of those things got him fired after 67 days in charge? Sam says he was foolish but entrapped. Was this really a firing offense?

I love Big Sam, but I don't see how his job could've survived this scandal.

England has reached peak fail with this firing, though Allardyce leaves with the best winning record of a coach in the national team's history.

The fallout continues. A Barnsley assistant has been let go, QPR's manager has been implicated and, prepare your shocked face for this, Massimo Cellino isn't completely clean!
