Former Toon Boss For England Job? You're Joking!

Fat Sam not only says he would win the Premiership "every season" if he was Man Utd boss ... but he says he would lead England to glory too! 'Long Ball' master Sam Allardyce is hoping to be in the frame to be the next England coach. Current national boss Fabio Capello is standing down after next summer's European Championship and Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is the favourite to replace the Italian. Sam Allardyce: "I'd walk over burning coals to get the England job. "I am an Englishman and I want to have an opportunity like I did last time to be in the frame. "The only way I can get there is by making this club great or as good as I can make it. "And if the England job comes around and I am on top of my game as a manager because West Ham are on top of their results then my name might be put in the frame. "Last time around I was probably enjoying the best time of my life as a manager with Bolton. "That's why I was in the frame then. If West Ham are flying high in the Premier League, hopefully I'll be considered again. It would take West Ham being promoted."
