The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool

Shouldnt be any confusion with anyone, they asked Unsworth right after the game "did you pick the team", he said "yes, he picked the team", he also said that he had only talked to Sam for 10-15mins. 100% his team. Of course, with Big Sam watching down from his perch, and all the talk about him taking over, the players would have course had one eye on the stand and a thought about their future, and obviously put in a bit more effort.  Just a shame they didnt do it a few weeks ago for him, without Big Sam's presence there.

Would have loved things to have gone better for Unsworth, but I am 100% behind Sam and the rest of the team now, whether I would have prefered Dyche or Silva or pretty much anyone else other than him. 100% behind the team.

Personally, I think that the club really need to sit Unsworth down now and have a long serious discussion about his future. If there is a way in which he can continue to have some involvement on the fringes of the first team, we could have a ready made replacement in 18 months time when we say goodbye to the two fat Sammys. It's  blindingly obvious that he is passionate about Everton Football Club and he would crawl over broken glass to take the managers job. He needs a bit of work and he can learn from being around and involved. The shite had a boot room for years that was successful. Why can't we try that formula?

There are probably some championship chairmen and maybe even some from the premier league who would have looked at the way he conducted himself through this whole saga and seen what he has done with the u23's and decide to take a punt on him in the not too distant future.

I would have liked to have seen what he could have done if Moshiri had come out immediately and given him til the end of the season and some funds in the transfer market.

Again to to clear up any confusion

Course it was him. Allardyce was busy filling his pockets with complimentary Lucadaze Sport and Jaffa Cakes whilst the actual caretaker manager was doing his job.

Not tried to work out his % per point , win rate, etc  in those 5 games 7pts F8-A8 goals,  going of that he/we may have got about 50pts (which is about 10th to 8th in the league)
However it was the manner of those defeats that hurt his chances the most, all if's and buts , but if one of them away games where at home chances are we could have won it, and been in 9th now on 18pts , and I believe he would have got the job until the end of the season.

No manager is safe any more

great night last  night , Thanks Rhino

Yea the defeat to Chelsea in the league cup, and the 2 hammerings in Europe didn't help his cause much either.

This has been a tough learning curve.

From Everton sinking into the relegation zone to being now 5 points above it, and finishing with a 4-0 win - that's a very positive outcome!

It is also clear how Rooney can be used to greatest effect in the squad! At least, that's one problem less for Allardyce to sort out!

 :cheers: Unsy!

A great game from Rooney, no doubt about it, but everyone had a decent game, apart from that 15min spell,   think Rooney just played his usual game , of being every where - even found him self in the left back pos a few times, he just made the right choice of pass, and breaking into the box last night------

he was just trying too hard for me when the whole team was shite---also this was West Ham , toghether with Swansea the worse 2 teams in the League & Us until last night

Just thought I'd point out that, with everyone discussing points per game, Unsworth across his two spells as caretaker averaged 1.67 in the PL.

Not sure if this has been posted, but here's Unsworth picking up the UK coaching award of the year. :)

100% home record in league, 3 wins, 10 scored, 2 conceded.

This season he got 7 pts from 5 games, Koeman got 8 pts from 9 games.
