‘Big Sam’ Allardyce’s football sides are always assumed to be teams who play football of an agricultural kind, to put it politely.

But after last season’s forgettable campaign at current club West Ham United, it seems that the big man is tearing up the old formula in favour of a new, attractive brand of football, highlighted by his exotic purchases of Mauro Zarate and Enner Valencia.

And it seems that his new methods are paying dividends already with a sensational team goal involving new signings Alex Song, Diafra Sakho and perennial bad boy Ravel Morrison against Ipswich Town, albeit for the reserves team.

The trio produce a stunning sequence of flicks, tricks and one-touch football – eventually finished off by goalscorer Sakho – which leaves the Ipswich defenders stunned.

The wonder goal would make the tiki-taka pioneers at Barcelona proud – if Sammy Allardici could only get his team to score such goals in the Premier League, he might find himself mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Pep Guardiola and Rinus Michels…
