Wasnít he appointed Bolton manager to save them from the drop?

Blackburn were 19th, 5 points off 17th, and without a win in 11 games when he was appointed.

He might not have been seen as a specialist when they appointed him, but he was certainly brought in to save them.

Playing devilís advocate somewhat; what is this obsession with playing beautiful football? How many teams in the premier league are silky ball playing teams?

The School of Science is a thing most of donít even remember. Martinez revived it for a season but thatís about it. Even Kendallís teams were all about lumping it up to the big man and having quality players make something happen in the final third.

Nothing gets Goodison bouncing like us kicking the shit out of the opposition, winning the physical battles. Weíre a working class club and we demand our players graft and show passion. Allerdyceís will give us that. And getting the ball forward early and turning the opposition round could well be a welcome antidote to the horrible, boring as fuck possession football weíve had to endure for the last few seasons.

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

Who was dressing it up? I just don't think its as bad as the article and others are making out...not that its a good thing.

He got into europe with bolton. I'm not saying he will here, but worse managers have got there...so who knows.

Absolutely.

Speaking of Nzonzi, I had a little look through his record with youth players yesterday. It's nowhere near as bad as I thought it was, there aren't really any decent players he completely neglected. Even defensively he was playing players like Joey O'Brien and Phil Jones pretty regularly at a young age.

Yes but thatís the same for most managers.

They werenít looking at him other than heíd done well at a similar club.

But yes, aside from Newcastle (canít remember where they finished in 2007), heís started low.

He came across well in his pre-match press conference just now.

Got to give him a chance.

Sammy Lee confirmed... this, I admit, is much harder to swallow.

Suspect we're probably at cross purposes a little here. :)

He might rail against being seen as a survival specialist, but if he keeps taking those (no doubt lucrative) jobs then that's what he'll be seen as.

I don't buy into everything he's said, but it's nice to see him talking about European places and cup finals rather than relegation.

Allardyce has probably done this to redirect some of the hate for him onto someone else, much in the same way the Tories use Jeremy Cunt

And so he should be. Let's not praise him for that. We could be nearly top half by 5pm tomorrow, the squads had £220m spent on it in 18 months, with the promise of much more to spend.

Bet he can't believe his luck that an institution as great as Everton has come begging cap in hand, with massive money for him and his mates, to do a job that pretty much any competent manager could do in his sleep.
