Don’t miss the best Sam Allardyce jokes after an undercover ‘investigation’ by The Telegraph newspaper that claimed he “used his position as England manager to negotiate a £400,000 deal and offered advice to businessmen on how to ‘get around’ FA rules on player transfers”.
Although it is not clear if the recently-appointed national team coach has broken any rules, the secretly-filmed videos that were sensationally released last night are quite unseemly and his position now appears to be under threat.
These were the best of the Allardyce jokes after the Telegraph sting:

Sam Allardyce always seems the kind of guy who'd stand uncomfortably close to you at a pub urinal, then fart and say "better out than in."

a man called Big Sam being a bit of a wheeler-dealer is as surprising as a man called Paul Hollywood chasing that sweet paycheque.

Don't understand the shock around Allardyce and third parties. On any given night, he doesn't seem like a man who would stop at two parties.

Sam Allardyce isn't a scandal. It's a breach of technical rules in a stupid game. McDonalds paying 17 year olds £3.87 is a scandal.

If Big Sam weren't in football he'd be on Rogue Traders getting chased across a car park in Bolton by Dom Littlewood for a dodgy extension.

Sam Allardyce is a disgrace and needs to be punished, humiliated and made an example of. Therefore he should continue as England manager

I was initially against appointing Sam Allardyce, but if he's going to be sacked for corruption after just one game, it was all worth it.

Absolutely done in at Sam Allardyce having 3 times as many games as England's Soccer Aid manager than as England's actual team manager.
