Karen Brady reveals Sam Allardyce Interest to Manage National Team

West Ham vice-chairman Karen Brady has revealed that the club’s former manager Sam Allardyce always wanted to manage the England national team. Hence, she expects Allardyce to do well in his new role.


The former Bolton Wanderers manager is known for keeping clubs like Newcastle, West Ham, and Sunderland afloat in the Premier League against all the odds. He was seen as an inferior candidate to the established crop of international managers like Vicente del Bosque of Spain. However, he was the number one choice for the national team as soon as Roy Hodgson quit the role after the Euro 2016.

Ryan Bertrand: England must Believe

Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand says that England can certainly go into the Euro 2016 with the belief that they can win the title.

England will certainly not be considered as favourites to win the title after having not come anywhere close to winning a major honours since the World Cup 1966. Even at the last World Cup in Brazil, the team was knocked out of the group stages after once again performing in a very poor fashion. Things are slightly different ahead of the Euro 2016 England have qualified for the tournament by winning all the qualification matches.

HODGSON TRUSTS IN THREE

Roy Hodgson has surprised everyone by calling up only three central defenders in his provisional squad for the Euro 2016. This has been seen as a low number especially for major tournaments like the Euro 2016.

However, the former Liverpool boss has defended his selection by claiming that it allows him to pick an additional attacking midfielder.

Roy Hodgson backs Jamie Vardy after Draw with West Ham

England boss Roy Hodgson says that Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy did not deserve to be sent off from the 2-2 draw with West Ham.

Vardy has been one of the sensational stories of the 2015-16 Premier League campaign. He has gone from being a nonleague player into a potential forward for the England national team at the Euro 2016 in the space of five years. He has been a major factor in Leicester City being very close to a league title. However, his suspension for the final few matches of the season could prove devastating for the underdogs.

Changing of the guard in the Premier League

Nobody thought it was possible, but Leicester’s remarkable surge from relegation survivors to champions in the space of a year may suggest that there is a wind of change in the Premier League.

Claudio Ranieiri took over a team that were a mere 5000/1 with Bookies.com to win the title, and while many were surprised that Leicester had turned to a manager who had endured a short, ill-fated stint in charge of Greece, the Italian managed to transform them into deserving league winners.

Roy Hodgson admitted Picking Daniel for Friendly Matches

Roy Hodgson admitted that picking Daniel Sturridge for the upcoming friendly against Netherlands and seeing his performance against a top team will have a huge say in his ability to travel with the England team for the Euro 2016.

Sturridge appeared like one of the finest prospects since the days of Michael Owen and Alan Shearer at their peak. He had been one of the highest scoring English strikers in the Premier League before the curse of injuries struck him. In the last two seasons, he has barely managed 20 appearances in all competitions.
