Anything but a win and it’s honeymoon period over for Allardyce. There’s a tremendous lack of patience with our fanbase these days and will turn on Allardyce in no time if results are poor, especially if we’re playing horrible football. Arguably by starting so well results wise Allardyce has actually created a rod for his own back as expectations have been raised significantly.
The way we approach games against the top 6 tells us how far away from them we are. We don't even attempt to have a shot on the opposition goal, which for a team generally recognised as the 7th best team in the country is a pretty sad indictment of the quality of our league.
Agree that the PL standard below the top 6 is poor. Disagree that this has put off the fans who in most cases turn up in good numbers. We get 39000 every home game. The three coming up from the Championship will bring more full houses. I agree with Allardyce who said there is little point in building a new ground unless we are challenging for the top places. How far are we from that? Probably some distance, yet people are calling for his head already after only a few weeks. Rome wasn't built in a day. Can Allardyce build a team to seriously challenge the top 6? I don't know, but he certainly cannot do it in less than 2 seasons. We shall see. Those who don't want to spend their money watching this present Everton can make their choice and stay away. Plenty will take their places.
He is clearly not telling them to long ball it to DCL at every opportunityVs Chelsea and West Bromwich he was witnessed numerous times shouting at the players to passSammy Lee was also doing the same vs West Brom I think the difference with a quality striker is they can create a few chances for themselves and will take the few they get.Plus the midfield may get more confidence knowing there Is a quality front man who will retain possession
Massive difference between us and Burnley in terms of management.
I appreciate his honest post game comments at least.
It's all getting a bit partisan in here, but I'd be intrigued to see how the media reacts if we're still playing like this in February.The results have masked what has been some pretty poor performances IMO. We've had the rub of the green so far under Allardyce
