These are the best of the latest jokes as Sam Allardyce is finally confirmed as the new England manager.

With compensation for Sunderland eventually agreed by the FA after his nine months at the club, the already widely-reported appointment was announced on Friday.

Big Sam said:

It is no secret that this is the role I have always wanted.

For me, it is absolutely the best job in English football.

Here are some more jokes as Sam Allardyce is named as the next England manager:

"Big Sam will take English football back to the dark old days."
What? Three weeks ago?

Big Sam has said now is the 'Time to deliver'. He was talking to the local kebab house, though.

Really hope Steve Bruce's plan is to just turn up at The FA before Sam Allardyce does and see if anyone can tell the difference.

Will Sam Allardyce be asking Robbie Williams and Bradley Walsh to join his backroom team after their success with #ENG in Soccer Aid?

Steve Bruce is said to have parted company with Hull. Could he be Sam Allardyce's number 2? That would add real weight to England's cause.

Only just found out Sam Allardyce is 61.

For a man that drinks gravy for supper he's not looking bad.

Imagine if Mark Noble doesn't get a call up under Allardyce. That would be like Gods way of saying "nah mate. Not you"
