Just hope he uses what common sense he has and takes the kids over to Limasol on Thursday, no point in taking a strong team, especially with a game at the Norwegian church a few days after.

Should use it so see the senior players who donít play on Saturday.

Mirallas, Klaaseen, Sandro, Lookman and Schneiderlin, no problem with any of these going.

I'm in the minority that wanted him in weeks ago. I'm aware that most of that minority were also WUM.. which was a bit weird.

I wanted Koeman to do well but I was never completely convinced he knew what he was doing. But ok...

He's better than Martinez.

He's better than Moyes in my opinion.

Couple of points i'd like to make for all of the doom and gloom merchants, bare with me here.

We won't go down
We've never been in danger of going down
Coleman, Bolasie and Barkley are all weeks away from fitness
We will strengthen in January
Expectations have been lowered because of the horrible form we've been in
We will finish in the top 8 quite comfortably

Now he's here we'll just need to get behind him and start spelling his surname correctly.

Of course I wish him every success as the manager of our club. And I hope he goes on to smash it, and win things for us.

However, I still reserve my right to not like the bloke.

Compared to the rest of the football world? He wouldn't have been what I'd go for.

Compared to what we had though? Well, I like/rate Allardyce more than Koeman. Allardyce is probably better suited to working with Walsh than Koeman.

We've effectively swapped 18+ months of Koeman for 18 months of Allardyce. On that basis I'm...okay with how things turned out.

Plus £10m to swap them over.

Presuming that Walsh and Allardyce will be singing from the same hymn sheet, hopefully some of that can by not squandering money in the transfer window?

With hindsight, and considering I never felt relegation was a danger, would I have bothered sacking Koeman? I might think Allardyce is a better manager, but I probably wouldn't have bothered with the expense/hassle.

I can definitely see him getting the shortest thrift of any manager I can remember. A few dodgy results, a few shite negative performances, a few boos at home....before it starts. The only difference with him is he's so arrogant he'll probably not be able to hide his disdain that the fans are questioning his methods or turning so early and he'll go on the front foot to counter it, making it worse. Of course I may be wrong but I feel it's not just his football but his character which won't endear him to Evertonians.

What happened to our expectations man?

They've not gone man, but we need to get behind the here and now, as well as have desires for the future.
