Everton keen for Sam Allardyce talks as relegation threat grows

Keown called for Everton's senior players to pull the team together for the crunch tie

Allardyce has previously been considered for the job but withdrew his interest after Everton delayed making an offer for him to take charge.

Ditto Everton with Allardyce, Crystal Palace with Hodgson or West Ham United with Moyes.

Thursday's 5-1 Europa League defeat to Atalanta was an embarrassment, whilst Everton were also shambolic in the 4-1 loss at Southampton on Sunday afternoon, which appears to have sparked urgent action at Goodison Park.

Whilst he is reputable for defensive, no-nosense style football, the results that he has achieved over the years is remarkable, as he boasts a fantastic record of never being relegated as a manager and keeping teams afloat in the Premier League. Now leading Ukraine's top tier, they host Manchester City next week requiring one point to guarantee a place in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Everton caretaker manager David Unsworth expects to remain in charge for Wednesday's home game with West Ham but the pursuit of a permanent manager is nearing conclusion.

Vols In Talks With New Head Coach
Ironically, some Tennessee fans were hoping another former Tampa Bay coach - Jon Gruden - would become Butch Jones' replacement. USA Today Sports first reported that Tennessee and Schiano were working to finalize a deal .

Having spent such a short amount of time managing in the Premier League, Portuguese man Marco Silva has rapidly built up a strong reputation as one of the league's most talented young managers.

As Everton seek to avoid the grim prospect of being relegated to the Championship, it is no surprise they have turned to Sam Allardyce to save them.

The former Crystal Palace boss revealed he had held talks with Albion officials, who are reported to have offered him a £1m bonus if he keeps them in the Premier League. Two back-to-back heavy defeats has led to majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri and chairman Bill Kenwright stepping up their search for a new manager. He is the best candidate for that.

A move to Watford, advised by fellow countryman Jose Mourinho, has seen Silva pick up impressive results which have caused Everton to make multiple inquiries about his availability regarding a switch from being the Hornet's boss for just four months. And I make that very clear to the players.

"I don't think there's a secret ingredient where somebody just comes in and all of a sudden you start winning again".
