If ever there was a game which epitomised Sam Allardyce’s managerial career, this was it. When the pressure was on and only a result, not a performance, was needed, his players delivered.
It’s an extraordinarily bad game. Creatively awful. Sorry if you were hoping for more dramatic build up, more suspense than that. Too bad. I sat through it, if you were hoping for drama then you clearly didn’t bloody do so and you’ll get what you’re given and like it.
