These are the best of the latest jokes after Sam Allardyce vacated the England manager role yesterday following an undercover investigation by The Telegraph that claimed he was abusing his position as coach of the national team.
The search for a new manager has presumably already begun and Gareth Southgate is expected to take charge for next four games.
After briefly speaking to the media outside his home on Wednesday morning before jetting off overseas, here are the best of the most recent jokes after the end of Sam Allardyce’s short reign:
Big Sam's just steamed into the nearest Spar to FA HQ, and is eating as many Rustlers as he can raw from the pack before the police arrive

If anyone knows Sam Allardyce, please tell him to get in touch. We could always use more store managers and yes, we can pay in pies.
