    What's the chances of big sam being second favourite with the media come tomorrow morning??

    And do the bears think he is in any list we have? Thoughts? :):)

    Seems like he wants the USA job. Spoke openly about going there.

    He could at least give us a year before hand :)

    It's never going to happen folks, there's no point in discussing it.

    Big Sam would be great but unfortunately I don't think we could afford him

    Unless something has drastically changed, I don't ever see this as realistic.

    I heard him the other day when asked about a job and if he had been contacted and he replied "well I have been in Scotland for a few days so no"

    I did only just catch a bit of it on Talksport but it did get me thinking.

    Really don't see it myself given our financial situation and of course his apparent compensation.

    Alan Brazil asked him a week ago something like 'are you going to be heading up to Glasgow' and he just laughed it off.

    Don't think he'd have applied for our job but we might have approached him.

    Either way, can't see it.

    Our lack of budget and being asked to take the title off the tarriers in the near future, whilst being financially uncompetitive, will see most managers decline us due to them knowing that 2nd is nothing in Scotland.

    I think cash and/or a luxurious lifestyle is king for Sam and I don't think we can offer either unfortunately.
    I say unfortunately because I think the way he can operate a club from the bottom and the challenge we would provide would fit his style and character.

    I think this will be another one you will hear from in a few years time saying he had a chance to go to Rangers, didn't and regrets a missed opportunity.

    If we have approached big sam then logic tells us we must have the money, no?

    I doubt we have approached him mate.

    And if we have and indicated he will have 'loasdamoney' then i'd love to know where that money is coming from.

    There's literally no suggestion we've approached him. Anywhere.

    Maybe if circumstances were different then it could have been a possibility.

    I don't know how he would fair up here as he is normally involved in building sides to survive, where as up here the pressure would be on for him to win every week, it would be a different style than he's had to implement over the course of the majority of his career.

    That being said, I think it would appeal to the ego of Big Sam, come up here, build a side to stop the megalomaniac Rodgers and his "Tikky takky bollocks" potentially win a title, something he has never done and pretty much write himself into the history books.

    I think it's a non starter unfortunately.

    The Rangers job and Scottish football isn’t as appealing as it once was say 10, 20 or 30 years ago. I don’t like it either but it’s the harsh reality.

    Football is no longer about getting to the biggest club you can. It’s about managing a shit club in England for a few million a year, regularly spending 30-60M on transfer fees every summer and winning nothing in your lifetime.

    I think unfortunately there is no chance Big Sam will be in the running.

    Big Sam was offered 100k a week until the end of the season and he rejected it as he wanted a longer contract. No way is he coming here for 15-16k a week which is what Pedro was on.

    Is the compo due if he goes to a non English club?

    How much do you get for getting to champions league group stages. According to Scottish media anything up to £30m. So say to big Sam or someone of his elk and ego get us there and we’ll give you a £5m bonus

    His reply will be no.
    He’ll want £2.5m a year and a big backroom staff and a big budget.
    No chance.

    I read he was after 100,000 a week at Everton. Unless he changes that to "per year", I do not think he will up for it.

    Does he really strike you as a man who who will give up big money elsewhere to pursue such a challenge.

    I know wishful thinking on my part but might feel he has a point to prove against his sacking

    To be honest I have no idea.

    I thought that it was if he got another job but you could be right.

    Know a guy that worked with big Sam at clubs down south. Tells stories about away games in hotels when the management team would crash weddings led by big Sam, doing karaoke etc and getting so pished that the physio staff could hardly massage the players pre game.

    Sounds like a great big guy to be honest but perhaps not why we need right now

    The USA job will look like gravy to Allardyce.

    Pots of cash swimming around, lots of media so he can pontificate shite to his hearts content and be lauded as some sort of guru, and relatively piss easy qualifying groups.

    I suspect he would do anything if the money was right? They'd need a champagne fridge and dance floor though.

    Exactly. This is the guy who lost the England job because he was caught scratching around for a few hundred grand.

    I fail to see why he’d entertain us when he can earn 3 or 4 times more elsewhere.
