Allardyce laments Everton’s poor attack and defence

Manager’s comments ahead of Monday night game Everton host Newcastle United on the Monday night football feature, with Sam Allardyce seeing his current team take on one of his half-dozen former teams. Speaking in his pre-match press conference, he was asked what it was like coming up against a former side. ”It’s been so long now there’s nothing but respect for the football club. While I always considered it was unjust I lost my job, it happened and I moved on. ”After a difficult time from that period onwards they’ve managed to recover and get back in the Premier League and what...

Everton Board to decide Allardyce fate this week

The Board will convene to discuss the manager’s future With all the furore surrounding Sam Allardyce’s tenure as Everton manager in the last few days, it now appears the club’s Board will convene this week to decide whether he will be returning for the second year of his two-year deal. No doubt somewhat inspired by Arsenal who announced this weekend that their vastly experienced Arsene Wenger would not be coming back next season, it looks like Farhad Moshiri might be paying attention to what the club he was once an investor in are doing. The Mail are reporting the news about the...

Everton could consider Lookman permanent transfer to Leipzig

Allardyce says decision will come down to the Board After yesterday’s comments from Red Bull Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick saying that the German club could be interested in signing young winger Ademola Lookman permanently, Everton manager Sam Allardyce was asked about his thoughts on the matter. Lookman does not have an option-to-buy on his loan deal that saw the youngster go to Leipzig in January, but Rangnick sounded quite committed after watching him score over the weekend (via ESPN) - “If it were down to us, I’d already know the answer. But it’s not only down to...

Allardyce criticizes Premier League for bringing forward Transfer Deadline Day

Everton manager unhappy about mismatch with other Leagues Amid the furore of Everton sending out a fan survey that included a question regarding how the supporters felt Sam Allardyce was doing, the manager was speaking to the Mirror about a topic that most fans hope he will not be addressing at Finch Farm at all this summer. The Premier League made the decision to bring forward the closing day of the summer transfer window so that teams will not struggle with the disruption of transfers once the new season has begun. Per FIFA regulations, the summer window has to be at least 12 weeks...

Sam Allardyce was never Everton fans’ No1 choice… but asking supporters how they rated their boss in a survey was jaw-droppingly crass and cowardly

Everton, that survey, and the future of Sam Allardyce

Everton fan survey was good intentioned, but slightly misjudged I have to admit I do have a touch of sympathy for the Everton media team at the minute. The toxic atmosphere surrounding the club, due to circumstances beyond their control, means they can’t do right for doing wrong. The club are regularly accused of not being in touch with the supporters, so a fan survey sent to all season ticket holders and members makes perfect sense. Unfortunately, asking fans to rate Sam Allardyce’s performance out of 10 when antagonism towards the current Toffees boss is at an all-time high is only...

Everton getting more congested at key position

Difficult decisions regarding personnel may be on the horizon There aren’t many positives to take away from a 1-1 draw against Swansea City. The Toffees got plastered for long stretches of the game, and looked totally disjointed at times in the process. I lay that at the feet of Sam Allardyce, who insists on having his team play maddeningly long and direct, even against a team with a decidedly mediocre midfield. Perhaps the only positive takeaway from this match, however, was the performance of Everton’s deep-lying midfield players (at least when they were allowed to play legitimate...
