Jim Allen is an American who's played football (soccer) in the UK for most of his life. He's a very well-known, extremely popular ex-player, so when he turns up back in the north east of England to manage his old club, it's a choice the fans and the players are ecstatic about. But that's not a feeling shared by everyone...

Now, when you think of football managers, names such as Alex Ferguson or Harry Redknapp usually spring to mind, but, with the greatest of respect to two of the country's most lauded managers, they're not exactly eye-candy. Although, to be fair, Jose Mourinho was always worth a second look... Anyway, what I'm trying to say is the words "football managers" and "sexy" aren't words you'd usually put together in the same sentence. Until I created the character of Jim Allen.
|A younger Jim Caviezel - a younger Jim Allen? Yeah!|
