Sam Allardyce to takeover from Fergie?

So then Big Sam Allardyce has resigned sooner than he'd liked to have done, he has stated that in an ideal world he'd have gone at the seasons end, which is just a couple games away.

However, Sam was pushed into going early, largely because The Sun and the Daily Mirror published that he was going to quit on the morning of the Chelsea v Bolton game. As I posted on Saturday morning, the story was printed as much as anything else to unsettle Bolton ahead of the crucial game for Chelsea, it was almost perfect timing for both newspapers. Allardyce was going anyway, but clearly not in the manner of his own choosing timing wise.

Listening to the reaction of Bolton fans on local radio, many feel that something is wrong and that the fans haven't been given the full story. Allardyce is being linked to Newcastle and Man City, but I'm wondering if Big Sam is being lined up to replace Ferguson at United this summer. Could a secret deal have already been agreed by the Bolton manager and the Red Devils?

If Bolton had got wind of this news and it appears that the Bolton chairman has been aware for some weeks that his manager was going at the end of the season, then maybe my theory might hold water, as nothing will upset the Bolton fans more than Sam joining United and this would certainly be a good enough reason for Sam to be told to go now rather than in two weeks time.

Watch this space.

  1. No chance matey boy, Fergie will be around for a good while yet.

    I think a possible could be this though - Quieroz moving in the summer for a managerial job of his own and Big Sam being brought in to replace him with a view to getting the thrown in 2-3 years.

    The Tache Man and Fergie are big mates and I could see this playing out if CQ ups sticks again.
