“I’m over the moon,” Sam Allardyce told Soccer on Sunday. “It’s all a bit tippy-tappy with your Madrids, your Barcelonas. We’ll not be doing with any of that greasy foreign nonsense. Our boys will stick it into the mixer and see which teams in the European Super League really fancy it.”

“I feel for the clubs being left behind,” said Allardyce. “It’s harsh to call them scum, even if the cap fits. As I say, I fear for the dregs financially once the big boys are gone — your UTDs, your Madrids, your West Broms.”

“Better dig out my passport and swimming trunks,” he added.
