Ex-Hull City boss Phil Brown has quite hilariously claimed that West Ham United’s Sam Allardyce is as good a manager, if not better, than Arsene Wenger.
Allardyce has been in the headlines recently for brandishing Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United a long ball team and claims he is one of the more sophisticated managers in football despite his reputation as a man with more ‘direct’ tactics than most.
And now Phil Brown, who worked under Allardyce as assistant manager during his successful spells at Blackpool and Bolton Wanderers, told BBC Radio 5 Live that his former boss is actually a more successful coach than one Arsene Wenger.
If only we’d had Allardyce as our manager since 1996 instead of that pesky Wenger.
Imagine all those other trophies we could have won. It would have been the ‘Invincibles’ every season, for sure.
Well, he’s definitely top of my shortlist when Arsene eventually leaves.
