Each club can spend up to $2.6 million under the cap but are allowed to sign two marquees outside of it along with a season-long guest player -- essentially a third marquee.

"I just don't know why we bother with a salary cap," he told...

Sam Allardyce will be unveiled as the new England manager on Monday after he finally got the job he always craved.
