I sincerely hope so.

Well he came to do a job, and given how bad we looked under Unsworth he sort of did, but at no point did I or anyone else (apart from Griff obviously) ever think that he's a permanent solution. It's just a matter of safely finishing the season and then trying to figure out what's next. Once you start firing managers it's crapshoot on what comes next. We once thought Bobby was the solution and that didn't turn out great either.

At our worst with Martinez, we were no worse than we have been in accumulating six points in the last eight games. And at least we were trying to play football, which is something we most certainly aren't ever likely to be accused of with this neanderthal in charge.

He can't have it all ways - you either insist on playing football and hope that gains you enough points (and kudos) to remain in your job. Or you play practically and gain points, and fuck the kudos. What you can't do is not play football and not gain points - and that's precisely what Allardyce's team is doing at the present moment.

I don't disagree Pete, but realistically this is who Allardyce is. I don't expect him anything more from him and this year is gone anyway. If we keep him past this summer then I'll start worrying.

I can’t believe old Kenwright hasn’t given Peter the job. First signing, once he’s been told to grow up, a fully firing Paul Pogba.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

The comments below the line on the match report in the Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... tch-report) suggest BFS is hated more than Wenger is by the stalwarts of AFTV. Several suggest it was a mistake to move on Bobby Martinez

I think we'll stay up, purely because we realistically need only four points (probably) from the last nine games. Our home form is good enough to get them, hopefully.

But the long term is dire, if we stick with Allardyce. We need to admit he's not the man to move us on, and recover from a (frankly) disastrous season. The fans didn't want him and they most certainly aren't going to want him around at the start of next season. Losing regularly is bad - but losing and playing like a Sunday morning pub team, is unforgivable.

There is nothing here I've not said prior to his appointment, of course.

Yes I would settle for a point. Even a one goal defeat.

Everton I presume? Bolassie went close in the first half with a good effort but apart from that he was pretty poor.

Another dreadfully dull performance.

The only fun part was Rooney throwing a strop at being substituted after approximately 55 minutes. For once I agree with Allardyce - Rooney had been a complete disaster from the first minute, and was lucky to have made the second half at all. And, oddly enough, we certainly did improve after his departure.

Is it confirmed there that Marcel Brands, the technical director of my club, PSV Eindhoven has signed on for the same position at Everton?
It's just been posted up on the PSV-site- allegedly he is keen to take one of our best players, Hirving 'Chucky' Lozano with him....

Rumours that Rooney is going to be playing in China next season.

Good.

Now that's what I call a deep-lying position. Hard to see him scoring too many goals from that far out, though.
