So the Sam Allardyce reign has come to an end. Don't know if he was pushed out the door or he stormed out of it. There are rumors he's heading to West Ham, which needs a relegation escape specialist something fierce. My guess is it was a combination of new ownership wanting him gone (bet your bottom dollar the Venky's folks have read and digested "Soccernomics") and Allardyce looking to jump to a new gig. It should be interesting to see if Rovers look to play a more adventurous style in the coming months. There's some danger involved, but I think there's enough talent in the squad to adapt more of a continental style. Now if the club just can bring back David Bentley.
