Jimbo White has said Allardyce donít bother getting excited about Fonseca youíre only going to feel it harder when the inevitable happens.

Didn't we just have the "no-nonsense" guy with Koeman?

Well, there is a subset of fans for whom the dream is Wayne Rooney surrounded by 9 pub side grifters. "That's real Everton" they will say.

Good for you and Allardyce skimming off the top as we spiral into the dumpster.

I know I said basically this exact same thing yesterday but.... depressing as he is, Allardyce is a pretty reasonable choice.

Tactics: He'll give us defensive structure, improve our attacking set pieces, and he doesn't require good passers in midfield (which is perfect because we don't have any).

Transfers: He's worked closely with Walsh and Glover before so we should be able to target our problem areas pretty efficiently when the January window opens. And if you're worried about exactly who he's going to sign, keep in mind that in his last three managerial stints, he's mostly targeted players ages 24-26 (a.k.a. early-to-mid prime players, a.k.a the gaping hole in our squad). That's a sound strategy for us right now.

I think you're right in that there are some positives, certainly better than the current situation as like any manager you'd hope at least we'd sort out some of the basic problems. Plus, we'd finally know whether Walsh is up to the job too as he really would be getting "his man" to work with.

Huge jump in money, opportunity to manage in the PL is not going to be there forever and which bigger club is going to hire him? I wonder if the delay in appointing a replacement has been because of his situation with them in CL still. If in a week they might be out of it, it's not a long time to wait in grand scheme of things.

Fonseca was one of the main candidates when we appointed Koeman. There are 2 things I think makes this likely, he appears to be receptive and he seems to be our preference. If we wanted Allardyce, it would be done and if Fonseca was going to reject us, I'm not sure talks would have progressed to an interview.

Here's an article from 6 weeks ago, that gives some reasons why he might want to move and why we'd be interested.
