Doesn't the style of football played by a manager depend on the players he has available?
The Himalayas has the Yeti, Norway has Trolls, America has Hillbillies. You, good people, are blessed with Shropshire.

After seeing players like shaqiri and bojan play as target men for stoke. I'd say no

People might think I'm a bit daft here, but I'm actually looking forward to seeing if Allardyce can make anything of a difference. I've got to say though; "I hate the idea of Sammy Lee coming in as his number two". ???

Because they haven't got a decent target man?  Makes my point exactly.

Any chance of a countdown timer pinned till Big Sam gets us to the magical 40 points and “safety” and earns his massive bonus?

No it doesn't. The point is that managers like that will play their shite football regardless of what players they have

Not really been applicable to any aspect of the club in the last quarter of a century has it so what's the point in pretending it's anything other than a meaningless moto?

Just because the board couldn't be arsed trying to live up to it. Does not.mean it's meaningless. Have some pride Drs.

I'd like the appointment of Allardyce to getting bummed in the shower by the prison bully. Sure you don't feel good about it, but you need to stay alive and he needs to give someone a bumming.

On a side note I wonder how much he 'll get to spend in January. I think we need to spend 70m minimum although whether thats available is another question.

70m?! That covers the agent fees and management takes, what will we actually spend on players??

I totally get the club was / is in a very bad place right now, low point indeed, but I also am a believer in what is meant to be will be.

Things have gone horribly wrong, but somebody said above that some of us have too longer memories and I think there is some mileage in that. It is what happens going forward that really matters - Sam and his team will of where ever they go not be the fans choice, but we don't get to choose. At least it's an 18 month deal, kind of suck it and see.

Although we spent silly amounts for not allot, there are still some very established players, important players in the twilight of their careers to be replaced soon - Baines - Jags - Williams ..... Mirarillas is not for us, and although Coleman and Bolasie will be back, there is no knowing what effect their injuries will have long term on their ability to perform as before, factor into that the player that was James  McCarthy and we have a lot of new faces to bring in / re-motivate - just maybe an experienced EPL manager like Sam is well placed to help here, may be not, I'd just like folk to have an open mind,and not beat themselves up over it.

For me Rooney is pivotal, and there is in my mind no doubt that performance last night was on the back of him and Mrs Rooney seemingly all lovey dovey again.

This time last night blues we were buzzing, lets look forward to more of the same.

Mate its sam allardyce. There's litterally no dressing it up. He's not unknown and we all know the style of football he plays and his capabilities. There isn''t much blind hope to cling on to. This appointment has written off the next 18 months for everton. We will never win anything or qualify for Europe under him

Yes, but can you countenance that Sam Allardyce had his prior teams play agricultural football because they did not have the quality to score enough goals to win games.

No blue-tinted specs here, but he now has the best quality players (in terms of their potential, I know they've been crap lately) and the most financial/status clout to attract more, than he's ever had at Bolton, Hammers, Sunderland, Palace, etc.

He was never my first choice either, but I think he will definitely stabilize us and remove the REAL fear of relegation we have been feeling recently. 

What happens after that, as our goal is to challenge again for Europe and domestic Cups?

I dunno!  Let's see.

It means exactly that as there is no truth in it whatsoever anymore
