Allardyce wants ex-Liverpool duo in Everton setup

Allardyce wants ex-Liverpool duo in Everton setup

His first job will be to fix Everton's defense, which is the third-most porous in the Premier League after conceding 28 goals so far.

They've had plenty of abuse thrown their way from rival fans as well as their own frustrated followers.

Following the appointment of Allardyce today, SportPesa posted a weird joke at the club's expense.

Sam Allardyce is set to complete a deal to become Everton's new manager later today, the club have confirmed.

"The attraction of the club itself, the people I've known at the club - Peter Reid is one of my best mates, so are Andy Gray and Paul Bracewell whom I worked with at Sunderland - these people have always made me aware of just how special and unique a club Everton is and I feel really enthused and energised to come in as manager", Allardyce said.

Sam Allardyce last night proved just how good he is by inspiring a team he's not even officially in charge of yet to a 4-0 hammering of West Ham.

Allardyce has been out of management since his surprise decision to quit Crystal Palace at the end of last season, having succeeded in a six-month mission to keep them in the top-flight. However, the club started poorly in both the Premier League and the Europa League.

"At the moment, going back into football isn't on the agenda".

Talking about the managerial situation at the club, Unsworth said: "As we sit here right now, I believe the board are talking to a few people". Allardyce is known to prioritize clean sheets above anything, and work from there.

Former Under-23s manager David Unsworth took over on a caretaker basis in October following Ronald Koeman's dismissal but has been able to turn his side's fortunes around.

Expect Allardyce to sign defensive reinforcements in the January transfer window, and maybe a striker, as he bids to extend Everton's top-flight presence to a 64th straight season.

His first game will be at home to Huddersfield on Saturday, and he will no doubt want to cap his first game off with a victory.
