Big Sam Sends ‘Journey Has Begun’ Postcard To England Players Hours Before Being Sacked!

Ok! Let’s be honest, Sam Allardyce didn’t see his undercover sting coming when he mailed a motivational postcard to England World Cup squad players right on the day of getting the sack from the FA for trying to bend rules on player transfer to a fictitious Far East firm.

The postcard begins with the title ‘The Journey Has Begun’.

The postcards are white with England’s Three Lions emblem in red, and text under the headline which read: “Well done! Our journey has begun with our first win together. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Sam Allardyce.”

England players received the postcard on Thursday which has caused much amusement in the squad.

It has also emerged the FA have had to throw out 4,000 T-shirts they were planning to give away to fans at Saturday’s World Cup qualifier against Malta because they had a similar Allardyce quote – “The journey starts with us all pulling together” – on the front.
