Blackburn Rovers sack Big Sam
Blackburn Rovers have this afternoon sacked Rovers manager Sam Allardyce.
Sam was relieved of his duties this afternoon along with his assistant Neil McDonald by new owners Venkys.
The new owners left a statement which briefly explained the decision.
'We have taken this decision as part of our wider plans and ambitions for the club,' Rovers said in a statement on their website on Monday.
Some people have got what they wanted but personally I think this is a poorly timed decision which robs us of one of the best performing managers in England.
Who do they have lined up? They must have someone as this is a rather daft time to sack a manager...
