When an England manager loses his job after just one game, it's always going to be worth abandoning one's existing plans and talking at length about his demise on a podcast. In this week's Football Fives we do exactly that, picking over the carcass of Sam Allardyce's disgraced England spell after The Telegraph caught him out with a smidgeon of entrapment.

Daniel Storey, David Hartrick, Ryan Keaney and Chris Nee talk about why Allardyce had to go, and also discuss the values, virtues and vagaries of the Team of the Week feature. There's a chat about West Ham United's difficult start to life at our their stadium, and the shortest question we've ever done: who, Nigel Pearson aside, is next up for the chop.

And there's a listener question this week from Andy Rockall, who gave us an excuse to talk about football kits. So we did. Nottingham Forest, Brighton & Hove Albion, Manchester United and Aston Villa supporters will recognise our choices.
