It’s hard to imagine any international football manager envying Sam Allardyce but, given Italy’s fate, Giampiero Ventura might just be one. After receiving a two year contract, Big Sam lasted just 67 days (and wags still delight in reminding all that he achieved a 100%...

Goal celebrations are less the cherry-on-top than the soggy bottom of the modern game. Less and less do we see the traditional wheeling off, ideally towards your own fans, elated. These runs usually end in a bit of a group hug (memorably parodied by Harry Enfield in hi...
