Delaney: Raiola XI vs. Mendes XI

FC United
 By Nick Miller

Five things Sam Allardyce must do with England before the World Cup

The ESPN FC crew weigh the pros and cons of Sam Allardyce as he looks set to take the England job.

England have moved to replace Roy Hodgson with Sam Allardyce after a disappointing Euro 2016 campaign saw them crash out to Iceland. With qualification for the 2018 World Cup just around the corner, the former Bolton, Blackburn, West Ham, Newcastle and Sunderland manager has to hit the ground running to ensure that the Three Lions will be in Russia.

Based on his reputation for playing an organised, tough brand of football, here is a five-point plan for what Allardyce needs to do with England.


Battle of the superagents: Mino Raiola's XI vs. Jorge Mendes's XI

Jose Mourinho once again addresses Man United's needs in the transfer market, insisting the squad are balanced.

Over the past 12 years, Jorge Mendes has been by far the most influential agent in the game, but he seems to have been overtaken in prominence this summer by Mino Raiola. The latter has been more visible in bigger deals over the past two months, especially the potential move of Paul Pogba to Manchester United, home of one of Mendes' main client, manager Jose Mourinho. Either way, it is impossible to deny that they are the two most dominant representatives in the game right now.

So who would win...

Paul Pogba is the hottest property in world football. The 23-year-old Juventus man has been linked with the world's biggest clubs for more than a year, and every day the sport learns of a new wrinkle in the chase for his signature.

A year ago, Barcelona appeared firm favourites to sign the France international. The appeal of working under childhood hero Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid has been one rumour circulating since Zidane took over at the Bernabeu. Most recently and most frequently, though,...

Sam Allardyce gets his chance with England, who need his prosaic style

Alison Bender looks at the stats of new England boss, Sam Allardyce, and examines what he can bring to the squad.

Sam Allardyce thought his chance had gone. A decade on from failing to become England manager, losing out to Steve McClaren at the interview stage, the dream job is his.

"The longer I thought about it, the more I felt I should get it," he wrote in his autobiography of the disappointment he felt in May 2006. In July 2016, he's become the best man for the job in the view of the English Football Association. In the wake of Roy Hodgson's resignation on June 27 -- minutes after England had shamefully...

Pep Guardiola's time at Man City begins with cause for optimism

Pep Guardiola and his new squad lost to Carlo Ancelotti and Bayern in his return to the Allianz Arena.

MUNICH, Germany -- Pep Guardiola's outfit was decidedly casual, a grey polo shirt worn over beige khakis and trainers. His body language told a different story. Impatient hands refused to stay in their pockets. They grabbed his face in exasperation one second and clapped furiously the next, somehow finding time to point an accusing finger in between. All the while, Guardiola was pacing and shouting, muttering and glowering.

It was always going to be this way in the Spaniard's first game in charge...
