Big Sam After Roeder's Job?

Last updated : 27 April 2006 By Footy Mad - Editor

Allardyce has been quoted as saying that Roeder should not be allowed to make his caretaker role at St James' Park a permanent one due to not having the Pro Licence qualification. And some see that the clearest indication yet that the Bolton manager wants to try his luck at St James' Park.

Roeder: "Like everyone else, Sam is entitled to his opinion.

"But he has had a good season so far with Bolton and I hope he has another good time at the Reebok next season."

Not quite a war of words, but reading between the lines .... "Sorry Sam, it's my job and you can stay where you are!"
