Sam Allardyce’s England job is on the line and fans think it’s hilarious

The country is reacting to the news this morning that England manager Sam Allardyce has been caught in a sting by The Telegraph appearing to negotiate a £400,000 deal and offering advice to business men on how to get past FA rules on the transfers of players and third party ownership.

The business men were actually reporters from The Telegraph unbeknownst to the former Sunderland boss and believed them to be in fact representing a company from the Far East looking to make some money from the Premier League in this country.
