You guys, what if Sam Allardyce sticks around at Everton? It’s certainly not out of the realm of possibilty. I mean, Everton has been better since he took control. Of course, that’s because Ronald Koeman was a complete mess at the start of the season and David Unsworth was in over his head. The fact remains that the Toffees have at least looked like some semblance of a football team in the last few months. Come on, Farhad. Don’t let this man fool you. He is who he is. He is a steady manager, but not a guy that can take you to the mountain top.
