Credit to what Sam has done for us since he came on, I'll hold my hand to say he was the right man until the end of the season because the mess we were in, I didn't think anyone could keep us up. However, I don't think many of us will want to see him on the touch line to start next season as it just means we're stagnating even more. My summer would be to get rid of Allardyce and Walsh and start again with Brands from PSV as director and a manager such as Fonesca or Howe. Since Roberto, we haven't seen a team with an identity something that we as a fan can hold onto. It gave us something to go for against the top 6 instead of being reactive against them and sit 11 men behind the ball as Allardyce and Koeman have done. I think it's really important some one comes in with unique style that can be used by the academy teams and also when looking at new players. And the biggest thing for something for us fans to hold onto and hope the manager can show the spirit shown by Unsy whilst he was in charge.

Good post Joe,

I have to disagree with you on SA not being here next season. This summer he will be moving on to the second stage of his appointment and that is to give Everton a stable base to rebuild on. If we just get in a new manager then that person is going to inherit all that is bad at the club, the bad things need to be sorted out and got rid of. Like him or loath him SA is the man capable of doing this.

For me I just want to get to the summer. We need a real revolution at the club with a new man in charge with a longer term objective and one that fits the phylosophy of the club.

We need also to bring Walsh to task and bring someone in with real pedigree in the DOF role.

Sam has shown what he can do as he does at every club but we need someone who has new ideas, a real winners mentality that can ignite not just the players but the fans passion again.

I don't think you can give a stable base unless you're staying. A new man brings new ideas and there is always some kind of upheaval. Time to rip off the bandaid.

Big couple of games coming up though. So many teams below us winning means it's still very close and we're so jackle and Hyde anything could happen.

Let's get these 8 points quickly!

I am with Grumpy on this. We have had too many changes in the last couple of years and now it is showing. Few of our "stars" are at their peak. Most are too young or too old. We still rely on 3 of Moyes' players from over 10 years ago. The rest are either losing their legs, are not quite ready or are just really bad signings. Our best signing since Lukaku is Walcott. Tosun may yet be a good signing too? He is still settling in. but from what I have seen he is a decent player. We have had many players coming and going. But few will be with us in 10 years like the Moyes ones. And I only say that because of my points above. they are either too old or not good enough. Yes we have some great kids who may make it. but they are not quite ready yet in the main. I think some people have a preconcieved idea about Allergy. But he was responsible at Bolton for the signing of amazing players like: Jay Jay Okotcha, Jussi Jaaskelainen, Fernando Hierro, Kevin Davies, Gary Speed, Stewart Downing, Nicolas Anelka, Youri Djorkaeff, Tal Ben-Haim and Stelios. As well as the reds spitter. People say he played hoof it football, but look at the quality of those players and what they achieved in their careers. We tried to sign enough of them at Everton and lost out to Bolton! So I say forget pre-concieved ideas and give the bloke a bit of a chance. Face reality. we have a very poor squad. but it is at least a couple of players better than it was a month ago.

sam will never change, he will always put an oddball side out against top teams and keep players injury free to play against teams he feels he can beat, not what I want to see, but I won't be surprised if we finish 7th, there are some poor sides out ther.

I'm still torn on Allardyce. One thing for sure though, is Walsh has to go. We still don't have a 1st choice no9 and it looks like it will be that way until the summer.
Looking at how poor the rest of the teams outside the top 6 are we should be aiming for 7th, anything less would be a little disappointing because of the position we are now in.
Regards changing manager, I would be looking at who is available, Allardyce is 63 and no spring chicken, so if a top manager becomes available and wants to join, I don't see how we can turn that down.

Allardyces next challenge is to turn our away form around and, beat the reds. If he did that and finished 7th, I don't see how we could get rid.
