The bit in bold was when asked if he would bring the Everton squad back to Dubai next season.

This appointment isn't viewed as a stop-gap lads.

Sam Allardyce says he is hoping to return to Dubai with his Everton squad next season.

The Blues spent last week in the Gulf on a warm weather training trip, and Allardyce has been a regular visitor to Dubai throughout his managerial career.

With a two-week gap between the win over Crystal Palace on February 10 and this Saturday's trip Watford, Everton were afforded an ideal chance to recharge their batteries with some warm weather training.

Allardyce has been thoroughly impressed with how his players have adapted to their temporary surroundings and revealed he would have no hesitation returning.

"It's been absolutely outstanding, the way the hotel has looked after us," he said.

"The training facilities are fantastic, the players have really enjoyed the training.

"In fact, we've had to make them stop training they have been enjoying it so much!

"The benefits are too great for us not to return.

"We are sorry we're out the FA Cup. Of course we would have loved to have stayed in it, and it was a spirited performance against Liverpool.

"We got knocked out with the late header from [Virgil] van Dijk, so we take this opportunity to take the break.

"I come back every year and there's no doubt about [returning]."

Allardyce also reiterated his desire to see Everton's poor away form improve when they return to Premier League action at Vicarage Road this weekend.

"We need to improve our away form, it's been a bit on the poor side, so we need to increase that," he told Big Rossi Radio in Dubai.

"It's been the opposite to the home form and like every other team outside of the top six, it's always a struggle to get that consistency home and away.

"We've been no better or worse than anyone else.

"We're all new, we haven't been together long and we can all get to know each other a bit [in Dubai], and hopefully, as we get to know each other a bit more, it will help on the pitch."

Hardly conclusive.

Nothing short of a contract extension would be conclusive enough for some people.
Even that wouldn't be seen as reason to believe he will be here next season.

He has spoke about planning for the future
Spoke about planning for the summer window
Now spoke about winter training camps away next year

He is, 100%, mentally in the space that he will be here at the start of next season.

It doesn't really matter though what he thinks. Every manager in the league is planning for next season as they have a contract for it. A certain proportion of them won't see it though as the people above them will fancy a change, we just have to hope our majority shareholder feels the same.
