Tommy Wright sacked by Barnsley... That didn't take long.   Hope he thinks it was all worth 5K.

There's not much integrity in the pro game. Both Tommy & Sam will be back in jobs soon enough.

Why are people even surprised by any of this?
Professional football is all about the money.
As for Big Sam getting a million pound pay off, it is just obscene.
How many of us would dream of seeing that much in a lifetime of honest working? :nilpoints:

Shady Sam on 3M plus bonus, expenses etc..  Yet still went chasing an extra 400k. Lets not forget how much he has earned ( ?) out of the game over the years for basically winning sod all at Premiership level.  Never had a job at any of the big clubs, yet good enough for England.


How much is a Ticket for England game ?   :laughcry:  I hope the fans Boycott International games in their droves.

Football needs a massive shake-up, starting with those who are supposedly running the game.  Time for a clean sweep at The FA

I agree re England fans being ripped off - some must have more money than sense?

It is still inexcusable but perhaps more understandable when shady deals are done lower down the pyramid but where Allerdyce is concerned the man has shown himself above all else to be a blithering idiot........By his own admission he had the job of his dreams, was already wealthy way beyond the hopes and aspiration of ordinary mortals and if he had done a good job with England......not difficult in comparative terms - the world really would have been his lobster. Added to which he would have had the opportunity to earn legitimately, way above his 'basic' 3m salary.

What a fool....blinded by greed and hubris

Some good photos of 'Touchline Tommy's' days at Lynn there. Anyone name the other Linnets in the picture? Think the late Adie Hayes is one.
