Does it really? I know we beat West Ham 4 nil but fine margins. At 2 nil we had about 15 minutes with under 20% possession. They hit the bar and missed a penalty. We then scored from about 60 yards. We spent 20 minutes completely collapsing. I think saying that 1 game meant we turned a corner is nonsense. I think all our decent defensive performances have been under allardyce. I'm not saying he's been great but don't pretend we are doing okay inspite of him when we've actually got better under him
Have we got better though?
Maybe slightly, but there certainly hasn't been a big enough upturn in performances.
He's produced the worst Everton performance for years at Arsenal, Spurs a close second, lost to Bournemouth and drew with West Brom twice.
If we somehow manage to finish 7th it will be at the expense of the other teams below us rather than Allardyce pushing the team on. Burnley haven't won in 11 games and still find themselves 7th for example.
