Norwich City supporters saw the passion of new England manager-elect Sam Allardyce at close quarters last season.

The 61-year-old shoved City striker Cameron Jerome during a touchline scuffle at Carrow Road in April, which led to a £30,000 fine and a Football Association warning for the Canaries and Sunderland.

The fracas broke out in front of the dug-outs after Robbie Brady pushed Black Cats full-back DeAndre Yedlin into an advertising hoarding, with players and coaches from both sides getting involved in the angry confrontation.

Allardyce's team went on to win 3-0, a result which played a key part in their survival and City's relegation.

Overall the Canaries have faced Allardyce teams in 11 matches, losing seven of those matches, drawing once and winning just three while he was in charge of Bolton, Blackburn, West Ham and Sunderland.
