Mark Bosnich believes Sam Allardyce could be the first managerial casualty of the new Premier League season.In a remarkable interview on The Sports Bar on Thursday night, West Ham co-owner David Sullivan admitted the board and Allardyce were at loggerheads over the future of Ravel Morrison and warned the style of football must improve this season.Those candid comments suggest all is not well at Upton Park, according to Bosnich, and the former Australia international goalkeeper reckons Allardyce will be heading for the exit door if the Hammers fail to fire at the start of the new campaign.“There’s obviously a problem brewing between the manager and the ownership and this is probably the beginning of the parting shots between them both,” he said, speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“If Sam Allardyce doesn’t do too well at the beginning, I can’t see him being there for much longer.“The board and West Ham fans are fed up of playing the same style of football. They want to play a different style of football and they think that Ravel Morrison fits in to that way.“If West Ham start badly, I really can’t see Sam Allardyce staying too much longer.”

The submarine is docked in San Diego. Myrick said Portland will be temporarily reassigned and the Hampton will not conduct operations until the Navy can confirm the safety standards have been met. “He has not been charged with any offense nor has he received nonjudicial punishment,” Myrick said. There was no phone listing for Portland in San Diego, and the Navy did not immediately respond to an AP interview request. Portland’s removal comes after officials also discovered that logs on the Hampton had been filled out to make it appear the daily checks of the reactor water had actually been done. The commanding officer of the nuclear-powered submarine USS Hampton was relieved of his duty Thursday because of a loss of confidence in his leadership, the Navy said. Cmdr. Michael B. Portland was relieved of duty after a U.S. Navy investigation found the ship failed to do daily safety checks on its nuclear reactor for a month and falsified records to cover up the omission. “His oversight of the crew’s performance did not identify these issues” without an outside inspection, Navy Lt. Alli Myrick, a public affairs officer, told The Associated Press. It appears from a preliminary investigation on the Hampton that sailors in Submarine Squadron 11 had skipped the required analysis of the chemical and radiological properties of the submarine’s reactor for more than a month, even though a daily check is required.

1 Giggs was assistant to Moyes and Van Gaal after his United playing career ended Ryan Giggs wants to launch his managerial career at Southampton following the sacking of boss Claude Puel this week.Giggs spent three years working as assistant to David Moyes and Louis van Gaal after his playing career ended, but stepped away from Manchester United when Jose Mourinho took charge last summer.The Old Trafford legend took the reins briefly following the dismissal of Moyes in April 2014, guiding the team through the final four matches of the season, winning two, drawing one and losing the other.And Giggs now sees this as the perfect opportunity to take his first steps as a manager in his own right, according to the Daily Mail. Puel had been tipped for the chop this summer, despite guiding the Saints to eighth in Premier League and were losing finalists in the EFL Cup last season.Former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel distanced himself from the role on Thursday, with Frank de Boer and Alaves boss Mauricio Pellegrino also in the frame for the job.

GARDAI are warning motorists to slow down on Donegal’s roads over the next 24 hours due to freezing temperatures.It’s already -3C in many inland areas of the county and temperatures will fall to -6C.The freezing conditions will continue throughout Thursday, before the next weather system from the Atlantic shifts the easterly cold front – bringing with it a huge deluge of rain on Friday. Met Eireann has issued weather warnings for both systems.Donegal County Council staff are gritting roads overnight and in the morning, but once again warn that drivers should be cautious.Friday is looking like a wash-out – and there is a possibility of snow on Thursday night/Friday morning.
