Walrus harpooned as "Big Fat Sam" given the boot at Blackburn Rovers
Allardyce was dismissed from the club along with his assistant Neil McDonald by the club's new owners, the Venky's Group from India. The club announced that the first-team coach Steve Kean will take temporary charge of the club.
Allardyce - also known as The Big Fat Walrus - brings a dire brand of football to EVERY club that he manages - producing a defensive, dour, depressing style of game to watch all in the name of ginding out 0-0 draws to avoid relegation.
It will be most football fans wish that he gets nowhere near a Premier League club again.
Former Tottenham boss Martin Jol, who who resigned as Ajax manager last week, ex-Aston Villa and Leicester City manager Martin O'Neill and former Rovers favourite Alan Shearer have been linked with the Ewood Park job.
