I remember Allardyce saying he doesn't like to see players constantly passing sideways and backwards. That was some weeks ago and I thought, "At last! A manager who talks sense." However, talking about it is one thing - on the pitch and in selections I don't see any attempt to change this sorry style of play.
The defensive lineup against Bournemouth left fans bewildered. You just know the ball is going to keep coming back to the Everton box like a yo-yo. Then, when we finally have players on the pitch to contribute to attacking football and looking like they will win, what does the manager do? He takes off Gana and puts Rooney to defend in his place. Bolasie, completely off the pace and out of form contributes little and the inevitable happens. We become unbalanced, lose team cohesion and lose the match. His managerial decisions over the last two games have been bizarre. His luck ran out.
Let's face it. Everton have been massively lucky in recent games. He continued with the players that beat West Ham 4-0 and made few changes in the first few matches. He has a lot still to prove and many are not impressed with what they see or with his comments concerning players such as Niasse.
He made massive mistakes in his management against Bournemouth, so he will need to do exceptionally well from here on to bring the fans back on side.
