    Everton forum poll is slightly less one-sided than the West Ham equivalent for Moyes:

    Sammy Lee will be counting for a lot of those thumbs down.

    His statement was quite good and uplifting. Exudes confidence and positivity in comparison to the doomsday monger Moyes.

    Really don't think this is a bad appointment, especially as it is a 1.5 year contract. Sam might adapt to the demands of the club once safety is assured. If he doesn't, they can probably prise Silva off Watford afterwards.

    He will keep them up but they were never going to get relegated, anyway. They were aiming to break into the top 6 before the season. I suppose top 10 would be a good effort at this point.

    They were in very bad form so I wouldn't say never. There are five teams in a worse state though I suppose (Palace, West Ham, Swansea, West Brom, Stoke)

    Seems to be doing an excellent job. 10 points in 4 matches. Everton's preferred choice Marco Silva meanwhile has 1 point in his last 4 matches.

    What has he changed Everton fans?

    Not an Everton fan but Sky did a piece on him and the fundamental thing is that they have become a lot harder to score against. He has discouraged them from trying to retain possession in their own half primarily. Not to everyone's taste but it is working.

    They are third in the form table (last 6 games) and if you consider only Big Sam games then they should be 2nd (last 4 games) with 10 points in 4 games. City with 12/12 are first.

    Also Crystal Palace are on 7th place. Looks like oldies are doing very good job.

    Up to 9th and they were only hovering above relegation not so long ago.
    We have to play them in the new year where I can see them reverting back to their game raising selves,no longer an easy game I think.

    He badly needs to replace Williams who is an utter liability and seems to cost Everton a goal in pretty much every game that I have seen. Calvert-Lewin has done decent enough, but for me, he still looks incredibly raw and I'm very unsure about him. God knows what will happen to the likes of Klassen and Ramirez now.

    It's been discussed on here before about how premier league clubs just play merry go round and keep hiring these uninspiring managers destined to fail.

    Allardyce and hodgson should not be part of that group, as popular as it is to lump them in, both have proven themselves to be very good managers.

    Allardyce was vocal about the food bank problem in Liverpool and how it affects low-income people. Seemed genuine when he said it.

    Everton fans over on Grandoldteam generally can't stand him and there was a thread started yesterday saying that there are rumours that he might he axed if they get beaten by Leicester next week. With Silva available for nothing now, the pressure is on.

    I think that is just wishful thinking from their fans. I agree with what this guy said on page 3:

    Oh of course it is, like all the 'LvG and Moyes will be sacked if they fail to beat 'x' team' threads that popped up on here. Still though, they're on a poor run, the fans haven't taken to him and Everton's first choice, Silva is now available for free. I would be surprised if he didn't last until at least the end of the season, though.

    :lol: The thread starter even joined on Sunday. Clearly someone on the wind up. Surprised that thread is still open.
    Looking at the games, the United and Spurs ones were expected defeats and they got close in the FA Cup game against Liverpool. Leicester game is pretty huge in the sense that if they lose it then that is their remote hopes of qualifying for Europa League over. I think this five game run:

    Crystal Palace (h)
    Watford (a)
    Burnley (a)
    Brighton & Hove Albion (h)
    Stoke City (a)

    is what the Everton board will be most concerned with over the Leicester/Arsenal games and Allardyce is the best bet they have to win those. I wouldn't trust Silva with Everton's current defence against them to be honest.

    He may be sacked, but he'll still be around for a long time.

    Big Sam, Pardew and Hodgson just refuse to leave the Premier League :lol: Dinosaurs but to be fair are able to save teams from relegation.

    What is amazing to me is the fact that Hodgson was England and Liverpool manager :lol:

    Haha, I didn't realise he only joined on Sunday! Their defence is absolutely woeful and Williams' regression has been staggering considering he was fantastic at the Euros only 18 months ago. I'm surprised that they aren't really being linked with any CB's. The fact is, the majority of fans didn't want Allardyce, and now that Silva is available, they're hoping that he gets the heave-ho so Silva can come in.

    They had a good start under him. But since that 7 game honeymoon period they have been truly awful. I can see them letting him go in the summer.

    Yeah and the fans, the majority of which were never on board from the start, have really started to turn. They look absolutely dreadful, completely clueless.

    He's a relegation manager. Best he can do is to get them above relegation zone and we all know that from the start.

    Their fans were really voicing their disapproval at the end. Not much can be done now. He will be gone at seasons end though.

    They Loathe him.

    I'd be amazed if he stays for next season.

    The fact they tried to only offered him a contract until the end of the season says a lot about their commitment to him. He's gone in the summer. Everton were so knackered in September/October they needed the ship steadying. No way the board want him longer than May.

    What's Sam supposed to do with the sack of shit Koeman left him? Everton fans have expectations beyond their level.

    There are some decent players there. Their squad is no worse than Burnley's
