If he gets a win on Sunday, it's going to give him a lot of room to get things into order. It will set him up with the fans for weeks.

If he organizes us our first win at The tin mine for a generation, we will overreact big time (prob me included) and will be singing his praises for months not weeks



I was thinking maybe 10 or 12 weeks like. :)

I don't want to have to.

He can come in, stop us from being Koeman's shite, and fuck off and let a proper manager come in and take us forward to a level he's never been at before.




But you don't have to. He's just avoided what the whole world considered would be our greatest humiliation ever. Do you want the School of Science? Be patient. It takes times like this to provide the perspective. You want a cure for madness and are listening to the mad.

All Aldridge is doing is stirring up the shit. Any trouble, any disharmony he can create to give EFC problems, well, he'll try it. It won't be long before they turn on their legend Sammy Lee. I will say it was really weird watching him jumping up and down when Rooney scored though. Who could have predicted that happening 6 months ago? ;D

I'm proud of the Everton manager, Big Sam Allardyce speaking out on some of the disastrous policies this government is saddling the population with. No matter how long he's here and how well he does, I'll always respect him for that. It's good the name of Everton Football Club is associated with such a statement. Well said that man.

It's not for politicising this thread that I've mentioned his statement. He's aware that the biggest impact he can make, is by saying something. No, he's not beyond criticism, but I welcome his statement and hope more start to do the same. This silence about what's happening to the poor is eerie. Anyway, back to football. :)

I think in order to keep the job past this season he will need to show signs of better football. But for now, a blueprint of beating all the shit teams and being solid and getting a point against the top 6 sides will be surprisingly effective at rocketing us up the table

Sam deserves the benefit of the doubt for now due to the sheer amount of games we’ve had in such a short space of time, the appalling form we had going into his appointment, the amount of injuries we have, the individual form of big chunks of the squad and the total lack of shape and defensive organisation we had prior to his apppointment

At the moment we really couldn’t have played open attacking football and beaten Liverpool away and Chelsea at home. A point was good in both games given how often we’ve had a spanking at Anfield in recent years and how good the champions form has been in the last 10 matches

If Sam steers us to 7th and the team is more solid, with lots of young players having gained valuable first team minutes, then I think he’s done a good job.

We will need to see better football if he’s to take the job beyond next season though



This is what's got me baffled, as to the reactions to a 1-1 at Anfield and a 0-0 at home to Chelsea. We beat the other four teams fairly and squarely. No hammering away to the other lot and no mauling against Chelsea like we took against Arsenal 5-2 at home. Once again, everyone has the answers, but they're not taking home 6 million quid a year for putting it right. Sam Allardyce despite his shortcomings, is doing exactly what he was recruited to do. When, or if, we start taking unacceptable beatings this Forum is going to light up like the proverbial Christmas tree. Or, would that be more like Dante's Inferno. :)

We say thanks and get someone in who can get us higher more frequently. Moyes had us to fourth once.



What happens if we win the league?

Really split on this one tbh. On one hand he has had some shocker like the arsenal game where we were as bad as i can ever remember....then I look at the table and think how much safer we look. I know people say any monkey could have kept us up but that isn't true we were absolutely dreadful and arguably the worst team in the league at the time. I'm literally split.



Sounds like you need to pull yourself together. ;)
