Everton name Allardyce as manager

  • Sam Allardyce is Everton's new manager

EVERTON WILL APPOINT a new manager in the shape of Sam Allardyce later today, all going according to plan.

Allardyce re-emerged as the leading contender for the job this week after Everton were forced to accept defeat in their attempts to persuade Watford to part with Marco Silva.

The Goodison club has now confirmed on their official Twitter account that the ex-England boss is on the verge of being appointed as manager but David Unsworth will remain in charge against the Hammers on Wednesday.

In the end, the unexpected possibility of relegation from the lucrative Premier League might have spooked the Everton hierarchy and Allardyce, available since quitting Crystal Palace in May, fits the bill at the moment.

With Everton being absolutely disgusting at football this season under Ronald Koeman they decided that the threat of losing out on all that money was too great so they sacked him and spent a month trying to find the ideal manager.

Everton have lost seven of their 14 league games this season and can not qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League after earning one point from their five Group E matches.


Lee previously served as Allardyce's assistant at both the Eagles and Bolton Wanderers as well as a brief spell with the England national team.

With Unsworth overseeing his final match at home to West Ham tonight, Allardyce's first game in charge will be against Huddersfield Town at Goodison Park this Saturday. It's what you need to have and hopefully we can deliver to the fans to get this club high up the league.

Is Sam Allardyce the right man for the Everton job?

They have conceded more than twice as many goals as they have scored having failed to replace leading scorer Romelu Lukaku following his summer departure for Manchester United.

Allardyce was in the stands to see Everton win for only the second time in 11 games. But that turned sour after only one match, with Allardyce stepping down in September 2016 following a newspaper sting.
