Sam Allardyce to be named new Everton manager in next 48 hours

1. Replace Romelu Lukaku

Everton have confirmed that former England manager Sam Allardyce is poised to be appointed manager.

Lee is a supporter of Everton's bitter local rivals Liverpool and, as well as being a player for the Reds, he was once a part of the coaching staff at Anfield, arriving there in 2008 to serve as assistant manager to Rafa Benitez.

Everton were easy winners at Goodison Park last night.

Allardyce re-emerged as the leading contender for the job this week after Everton were forced to accept defeat in their attempts to persuade Watford to part with Marco Silva.

Everton have lost seven of their 14 league games this season and can not qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League after earning one point from their five Group E matches.

2. Sort out the defence

In what is turning out to be a jolly good day for Proper Football Men™ that Know The League™, it's being reported that Sam Allardyce has agreed to take over at Everton, a little over two weeks after initial talks between the two parties dwindled to nothing. "David Unsworth will remain in charge of the Blues for tonight's Premier League match against West Ham United at Goodison Park".

Over the past two years, Allardyce has managed to keep up Sunderland and then Palace despite the teams being in serious danger of relegation when he took over. So with that in mind it's no wonder Everton are throwing a lot of money at a manager who's never been relegated.

Can Allardyce get Everton going?

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. However, the club started poorly in both the Premier League and the Europa League.

While Everton spent more than £130 million this past summer on signings such as Gylfi Sigurdsson, Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane and Davy Klaassen, in addition to adding Wayne Rooney on a free transfer, the Toffees have struggled to cope with the exit of leading scorer Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United.
