All the talk of Sam Allardyce’s potential replacement appears to be picking up some serious pace at the moment.

Having slumped to a pathetic 2-1 away defeat to bottom of the table Leicester City last Saturday, Allardyce’s future looks more and more likely to be away from the Boleyn Ground.

It’s no secret that the board are considering potential successors this summer, and several names are being thrown around as the fans and media alike speculate who really is the right man to successfully guide us in to the top six of the Premier League and, of course, our new home at the Olympic Stadium.

But who are the owners really looking at and who is capable of taking us to the proverbial next level. It’s increasingly looking like it’s not going to be Sam Allardyce, that’s for sure.

The Evening Standard’s Ken Dyer reported yesterday that there are indeed five managers on Gold and Sullivan’s radar. So here’s a look at who they are and what they could bring to club.
