With the vultures hovering an EGM has been called that suggests the axe will drop on Glenn Roeder asap. Speaking about Allardyce, Freddie Shepherd hinted that changes were afoot in the close season, whilst naturally denying he had spoken to Big Sam already:

I had the same thing last year. It is getting crazy. We'll get the season out of the way, and then start saying things.'
