All right big man, calm down a bit!

All right big man, calm down a bit!

Rovers boss Sam Allardyce seems to have been on the cooking sherry recently as he has started to claim he is better suited to the bigger clubs of this world rather than the Rovers and Bolton's of this world.

Big Sam even claims that he would deliver title's every season if given the chance to manage a big club.

Big Sam said to Sky Sports - 'I'm not suited to Bolton or Blackburn, I would be more suited to Inter Milan or Real Madrid,'.

'It wouldn't be a problem to me to go and manage those clubs because I would win the double or the league every time.

'Give me Manchester United or Chelsea and I would do the same, it wouldn't be a problem.

'It's not where I'm suited to, it's just where I've been for most of the time.

'It's not a problem to take me into the higher reaches of the Champions League or Premier League and would make my job a lot easier in winning it.'

I normally agree with most of the things that Big Sam says, even if others don't but this is absurd.

First off what good is it going to do saying this? It certainly isn't going to benefit us much.

Also, he is setting himself for ridicule and for accusations of grand delusion.

Bad move this.

Even as a Rovers fan I must say - what was he thinking? Even if this is true why say it?!

Read about it on sky sports today and couldn't believe it. talk about blowing your own trumpet. Sorry Sam but I think if you are good enough to manage Inter, Real or Chelsea you would have done by now. Let's just forget you said it and get back in the real world for the Fulham game.

I tend to think that there is some motive behind every single thing Sam says to the Press. I certainly cannot see what it might be in this case. Trying to wind Wenger up a bit more by implying that he is a better manager than him? Letting a potential new owner know that he is up to the job of spending wisely the transfer kitty? All a bit weird really but does not detract from a magnificent peformance from Sam so far in managing Rovers.

I can't see him having any chance of the England job - (although he would do a whole lot better than 6m-a-year Capello). He is a bit too uncouth and gobby and his English is only marginally better than Fabio's! I hope he can bring himself down to earth in time to make sure that Sparky gets nothing except a glass of wine from his return to Ewood.

If this is a way for him to be noticed for England job, or a way for him to show the potential new owners that he can spend good in the transfer period or just a chance to show off his managerial qualities then none of them are working..... no-one likes an arrogant man... if he was good enough to be managing Real Madrid then he would have been doing it already. If he was so desperate to make him self known as a potential England manager target then he wouldn't have to whore himself out... quality speaks for itself.... and if he was trying to make a good impression to the new owners then he's failed.... that only tells them he's got his eyes on a bigger prize...
