Big Sam takes step closer to England job [best tweets]
Several names have been touted for the England job since Roy Hodgson resigned following a disappointing European Championship campaign in France.
Eddie Howe, Jürgen Klinsmann, Guus Hiddink, Steve Bruce and Harry Redknapp to name a few, but one clear candidate has been Sam Allardyce.
Big Sam is a backs against the wall manager, which is something inevitably required as England boss, and is more sophisticated than what people give him credit for. His tactics speak volumes given the amount of times Premier League safety has been secured under his reign – most recently with Sunderland – and England are not going to attract any top-drawer prime manager.
Emerging as the frontrunner for the England job, we cannot ignore Allardyce’s credentials.
Therefore, Twitter as a medium is enormous, so we took a look at some of the best tweets covering this very situation.
Sam Allardyce should've got the England job ten years ago. I hope he gets his chance now.— James Corden (@JKCorden) 12 July 2016

Sam Allardyce would make a good England manager. Fire in his belly, tactically astute & would instil some pride in those overpaid wastrels.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) 12 July 2016
Please no Sam Allardyce as England manager. I don't think a relegation survival specialist (albeit a good one) is really the right aim here.— James (@James9861) 3 July 2016
I think Sam Allardyce should be next England manager, at least they won't get relegated from the Group stage. #ENG— Mikespace Online ™ (@MikespaceOnline) 3 July 2016
