BT's Jake Humphrey Cops Flak And Deletes Tweet Critical Of English Press Over Allardyce Fall-Out
By Gavin Cooney

Sam Allardyce's England reign is no more, brought to an end by the Telegraph's undercover sting operation.

The Telegraph filmed Allardyce advising people whom he believed were businessmen on how to circumvent the "ridiculous" rules pertaining to third-party ownership of players in the transfer market. Allardyce was also filmed criticising Roy Hodgson, Gary Neville and the FA.

Within 24 hours of the video's publication, Allardyce was sacked by the FA, with the Association saying that "Allardyce's conduct, as reported today, was inappropriate of the England manager".

While many hailed the Telegraph for their reportage, not everybody agreed. One was Jake Humphrey, of BT Sport, who hastily deleted this tweet claiming that Allardyce's departure was partly owing to England's "poisonous press":
