Why Allardyce Had To Go

Let's say you need some work doing on your house. You get a builder in and give him five grand to do the job. A few days later, after he's botched everything he's tried and and fobbed you off with lame-sounding excuses, he tells you the job's much bigger than he thought and he'll need another £20,000 on top to finish up. Do you a) hand him the cash even though you think he'll waste it, or b) tell him to sling his hook and find someone you trust to do the job?

Patience my arse. If football's a business then it's no different to any other. Big rewards come with big risks - and, for some of us at least, £6 million to cushion the blow.
